History teacher removed from school after telling students Trump is still President

A California history teacher was removed from her position after telling her students that Donald Trump is still the president.

The teacher, whose name has not been released, made additional claims about President Joe Biden’s son, Hunter, and the COVID-19 vaccine.

“Hunter Biden, for example, is doing deals with China and Ukraine where he was funneling money illegally,” the teacher, an employee of Anacapa Middle School, commented on a recording. “He also had child pornography on his laptop. He was having sexual intercourse with his own niece.” She also said, “If you have a baby in the hospital, they don’t want to give it back if you’re not vaccinated. This is a complete power control threat.”

According to a district spokesperson, Marieanne Quiroz, the teacher is still employed by Ventura Unified, the district in charge of overseeing Anacapa. Quiroz noted that the district “does not condone the non-instructionally related discussion” in a classroom setting. She added, “The Ventura Unified School District will work closely with staff to ensure that this does not happen again.”

Regarding the comments she made in the classroom, Quiroz said the teacher has expressed “deep remorse.” Some parents, however, do not think her removal from the school went far enough. One eighth-grade student told his mother that he would never get the COVID-19 vaccine after he had history class with the teacher.

He went on to ask her if she knew that Trump was still the president. “I mean, why? Why does that need to be said in this classroom full of children,” the mother asked. “I trusted her to teach him the facts about history and she went off on this rant like a preacher on a pulpit.”

The mother also noted that her child’s stance against the coronavirus vaccine has caused a rift in her child’s relationship with his father. As his father questioned what the child had been learning in school, the son said he believed his teacher. “When he first got in the car and said, ‘Dad, teachers know everything. She’s right, dad. You’re wrong.’ He’s damaged. He’s Hurt. He’s scared. He doesn’t trust his parents now. He thinks we lied to him.”
