Tacoma Teacher Scolds 10 Year Old for Admiring Trump, Tries to Mislead Parent

 In Domestic

Tacoma teacher Brendan Stanton, a middle school teacher at P.G. Keithley Middle School, asked students who they admired most. When the 10 year old son of Elsy Kusander replied “Donald Trump,” the teacher flew into a rage and scolded him. Then lied about it.

The question was: “Who is the one person you admire and why?”

Her son replied: “I admire Donald J. Trump because he is making America great again. And because he is the best president the United States of America could ever, ever have. And he built the wall so terrorists couldn’t come into in the U.S. Trump is the best person in the world. And that’s why I had admire him.”

The Tacoma teacher instantly went off the rails, kicked him out of the chat, and deleted the child’s portion of the chat. Then he proceeded to rail against the President.

The good news is, Ms. Kusander came into the room and recorded what he said.

Jason Rantz from My Northwest reported,

When Kusander came into the room to see what happened, she heard Stanton berating the president. She started to film the comments on her cell phone.

“The example that was shared in the chat, which I went ahead and erased for us, was not appropriate right? Especially as that individual has created so much division and hatred between people and specifically spoken hatred to many different individuals, OK?,” Stanton told his students.

Stanton was so offended, he apparently wouldn’t even say the president’s name. Instead, he referred to Trump as “that individual.” But he wasn’t done.

“Again, that individual has spoken hate to many individuals and I don’t think is an appropriate example for a role model that we should be admiring,” Stanton concluded.

Kusander was shocked at Stanton’s comments.

“I went into my son’s room and I heard the teacher saying that this individual is hateful and divisive, etc. I started to record,” Kusander told the Jason Rantz Show on KTTH. “How can a teacher be teaching to his students horrible things about the president of the country without facts?”

Kusander confronted Stanton in a phone call later that afternoon. Again, he attempted to mislead her to the point of outright lying to cover his exposed bias.

Tacoma teacher has excuses

First, he claimed that her son didn’t understand the question and that he was talking about “computer programmers.” When that didn’t work, then he claimed that someone else in the class was offended. That didn’t fly either. The he claimed that it wasn’t “political” and that the boy’s response about the wall and “terrorists” was wrong. Ms. Kusander is from Honduras and is against illegal immigration. That excuse was a bust too. His half-a***** apology after that was clearly the opposite of the truth.

Jason Rantz stated,

The teacher’s comments weren’t fleeting to get the conversation back on track. They were sustained criticisms to make it clear that he doesn’t approve of the president, as if any of his students even care what his stance is. He literally wouldn’t say the president’s name. That doesn’t seem particularly healthy.

Multiple emails to Stanton, the principal of P.G. Keithley Middle School, and the district communications manager went unanswered.

It’s a pattern

Kusander shouldn’t just be commended for being such a tremendous advocate for her son. Her decision to record the rant and confront the teacher is a masterclass in how to handle these issues. She’s not doing this to get Stanton fired. She just wants him to understand why this is inappropriate so he better handles himself if this happens again.

We think any teacher who has such deep seated aggression against the President or anyone else, for that matter, should go flip burgers at McDonalds and not teach our children. The teacher suffers from TDS in a big way. Kantz mentioned other teachers who taught lies to their students:

“At Seattle’s Catharine Blaine K-8, one teacher taught students as young as 11-years-old to refer to a riot as an “uprising” and rioters as “freedom fighters.” A second grade teacher at Grove Elementary in Marysville pushed a shockingly anti-police video to students. In Gig Harbor, at Discovery Elementary, students were recommended a book instructing them to become Progressive activists.”

Ms Kusander spoke with Jason Rantz and had this to say:

Good for you, Ms Kusander!

    These sick America hating teachers need to be either retrained or fired if the lie like this teacher did. Lying is a character flaw that can’t be retrained.

    • Kelly

      I agree! Look at what the schools web site says… “PRIDE stands for Perseverance, Respect, Integrity, Dedication, and Empathy. As a student of PGK you will have the opportunity to act out PRIDE characteristic everyday. The more you act out PRIDE, the more PGK becomes a part of you!”
      This should be removed considering they employ a liar.

  • Marti

    Now that is some serious back-peddling on the teacher’s part. It is also beautifully explained, putting the teacher in his place in an ever so subtle way. I love it!

  • Jared Pingleton

    It’s important that we not let these folks get to our children. My children are very self aware. They let me know everything. I have had to confront those SJW ass clowns first hand. STOP TRYING TO CRAM YOUR SHIT IDEALS DOWN MY OFFSPRINGS THROAT YOU PIECE OF SHIT!

    • Jay

      Some teachers are incredible bullies with children. When they have to face an adult….they collapse like the weasels they are.

    • Tyler Flowers

      Jared, tell it like it is!!! I love it.

      • marsha Clark

        if this had been a pro trump incident, the teacher would have been fired. Everyone should demand Stanton be fired.


    Another COWARD antifa “teacher”, needs to be FIRED.>>ALWAYS , like black LIES marrer, have an excuse.

  • Andy

    Filthy, communist-loving, unpatriotic liberal scum. You’re nothing but a cowardly bully, poisoning the minds of 10 year olds. You, and all of those like you, are a domestic terrorists. How dare you! And the lack of response from your principle (who are probably hiding in their safe place) prove you all need to GO!

  • Lorraine

    This ignorant teacher should be let go. How dare he berate a young child who admires OZuR President! I am sick and tired of the hate you liberals carry. Fire tour worthless, arrogant, uneducated educator!!!!

  • Jamie Bridgeman

    Wow! Cannot believe this teacher has not been fired! No matter what his views are politically, he has no right to bully a ten year old when asking a question and receiving an honest answer from his student. SHAME SHAME on him and his principal for not letting him go.
    He has NO PLACE in a teaching environment….

      The mother of the this 10 year boy was amazing. She nailed it. She was calm, polite, caught the teacher in his lies, recorded, the conversation for all to hear. I especially like the part where she tells this teacher that she is from Honduras, and is a legal and proud American Citizen. She points out that her son had said that trump built a Wall to keep terrorist out, the teacher knows he’s been had , so he keeps back peddling, with stupid excuses, the mom then points out that , lots of people build walls, or fences to keep bad people out. No matter what he dished out , she calmly calls him on his responses. She also schools him, that he should not be interjecting to her son, and other students his personal feeling about our sitting United States of America’s President, Donald Trump, it was obvious this teacher does not like him. She also lets him know in Honduras, a teacher would not be allowed to say and teach these things to students. This young man, is blessed to have a mother , who will stand up for him, and teach him respect, the teacher is lacking in respect, and I think should be fired, for what he said and did. The teacher was caught in a lie, and is teaching American children , to not like the President. He should be fired.

    Tax payer funds should follow the child, not the teachers union. School choice. Right now, teachers get away with it because their union is guaranteed the largest budget line item on most states budgets

  • Matthew Justin

    I emailed the school, please do the same

    Fire Fire Fire , the jerk

  • John

    I do not mean to allow myself to become all fired up but saying how concerned you are does not solve the problem, such people need to be controlled and action needs to be taken, or this will continue and increase.

  • Divinasenia

    Wow, I highly admire the mother. She is spot on, very beautifully laid out. That teacher is the one that needs to be kicked out. He spun and lied to his teeth. He needs to be fired.

  • Arthur fitzgerald

    As a older black American this type of racist behavior by a school teacher should not be tolerated. I wonder if he thought his students about the history of the party he supports? The Democrats have brought my people slavery, segregation, the klan started a civil war for Gods sake. But yet they get a pass but I can tell you one thing a lot of my friends and relatives are voting for president Trump. Were feed up with the left using us as pawns to further their agenda. Wonder if the child had said Biden would he have said you can’t use that man he was for segregation and attended klan rally’s with Robert byrd in the 1970’s. I think not. Please go vote on election day this is the most important one of our life time.
