“It kept getting worse and worse”
A middle school teacher in Georgia recently decided to use her classroom as a platform to attack Trump. What she didn’t realize is that one of her students recorded it and then shared it with her mother who was not pleased.
The student told the story this weekend on FOX and Friends. From the FOX News Insider:
‘America’s Never Been Great’: Student Records Teacher Saying Trump ‘MAGA’ Slogan Trying to Bring Back Segregation
Josie Orihuela of Hampton Middle School near Atlanta began recording on her phone when sixth-grade teacher Johnetta Benton began reaming out the president.
“When my president says let’s Make America Great Again, when was he talking about?” Benton is heard asking, and later adding that Trump must mean when “[America] was great for Europeans.”
“Because,” Benton continues, “when it comes to minorities, America has never been great for minorities.”
Huntsman said the incident happened at the same high school where another teacher requested students write letters to their lawmakers demanding gun control.
Orihuela said Benton made the comments as she was introducing a video to celebrate Black History Month.
“It kept getting worse and worse,” she said.
Though not captured on the audio played by Huntsman, Orihuela said that at one point, Benton surmised aloud that “Make America Great Again” could be a precursor to “trying to bring back segregation.”

As mentioned above, this school was also in the news last week for assigning students to write lawmakers demanding greater gun control. Katherine Timpf reported at National Review:
Seventh-Grade Assignment: Write Letters to Lawmakers Begging for Gun Control
Students at Hampton Middle School in Hampton, Ga., were given a homework assignment that required them to write a letter asking lawmakers for stricter gun-control laws.
The seventh-grade social-studies assignment, a copy of which was obtained by Blue Lives Matter, stated:
“For this assignment, you are writing a letter to the lawmakers of the United States. The purpose of this letter is to pressure lawmakers to have stricter gun laws in the United States. Your letter should contain at least five complete sentences. Make sure that you use proper grammatical skills when writing your letter,” read the assignment given out by social studies teacher Corey Sanders to his students at Hampton Middle School.
A parent of one of the students, William Lee, told Blue Lives that his son came home from school “and said he had to write a paper on gun control.”
“I looked at it, and I told my son, ‘No, you’re not doing that assignment,’” Lee said. “Then I emailed his teacher the next day and told him that my son would not be writing that.”
Sounds like some conservatives need to run for the local school board.
