Student Faces Bullies After Sharing Support for Donald Trump

A North Carolina boy, 11, was shamed and bullied for exercising his freedom of speech in the classroom. In fact, his teacher led the shaming. The boy called in to the Rush Limbaugh show to share his experience:

Matthew: I’m a huge Trump supporter, and I’m very outward about it. I like how he’s going to close the borders. I like how he’s gonna obliterate ISIS. Well, a few days ago — people are still charging me — the teacher wrote on the board, “Beside Martin Luther King, who are some visionaries who are in the world?” People wrote down Abraham Lincoln. People wrote down Rosa Parks. People wrote down Pope Francis. And I wrote down Donald Trump. And the next day, the teacher pulled me over and said, “Erase that comment!” And I was like, “Why?” And she’s like, “What good has he done for this world?”

Rush: (chuckles) Matthew, part of me is saying, “Join the club.” (laughing and clapping) Join the club. I have a lot of people telling me that I suck, too, and that I don’t know what I’m doing. But in all seriousness, you lumped Trump in with Martin Luther King and Abraham Lincoln, and your teacher told you to erase Trump because your teacher didn’t think Trump was qualified to be mentioned in the company of those other people, right?

Matthew then told Rush that "like 50 other kids" attacked him for supporting Trump. Rush told him, “You just stay dedicated to what you truly believe, understanding that all kinds of people are gonna insult you or tell you you’re wrong."
