Student Suspended By School For Supporting Trump

It seems like political discussions start at the drop of a hat these days, and they often run the risk of devolving into pretty passionate arguments. As WPTV reports, that’s what happened when this high school senior in Florida wore an anti-Clinton shirt to school, and she found herself facing suspension because of it.

Maxine Yeakle attends Boca Raton High School in Florida, and she wore a shirt proclaiming ‘Hillary for Prison.’ Some other students didn’t particularly care for her choice of attire, and a heated disagreement ensued. Maxine was faced with a choice: remove her shirt, or she would be subjected to in-school suspension for the day.

"It’s totally ridiculous. I just think it opens up a can of worms and who is to say I’m not offended by a Hillary shirt? And why don’t they have to change?" she says.

Maxine was pretty taken aback by the school’s position, and she’s also pretty ticked off about the hateful comments that have headed her way on Facebook.

"I think it teaches intolerance because those girls were intolerant of my views and my beliefs and that's teaching them that's okay because I got in trouble for that," Maxine continued.
