The Secret Service field office in Irving tells me they are aware of the incident, but declined further comment.
The teacher, at W.H. Adamson High School in Dallas, posted the video to her Instagram account along with the following message: “Watching the #inauguration in my classroom like…#no #stop #denial #squirtgun #hypocrisy #powerless #saveusall #teachthembetter #atleastitsfriday.”
Voices can be heard in the background – but the school district would not say if students witnessed the teacher’s disturbing demonstration.
The Inauguration Day video has since been removed, but several prominent conservative websites managed to save a copy including Town Hall and Resistance Media.
Video of the inauguration was being broadcast inside the classroom on a whiteboard. The video shows the teacher lunging at President Trump and firing the squirt gun numerous times while shouting, “Die!”
It is disturbing, to say the least.
Dallas Independent School District seems to be taking the matter quite seriously.
“Today, we were made aware of a social media posting being circulated involving a teacher at W. H. Adamson High School,” a district spokesperson told me. “The teacher has been placed on administrative leave and the district has opened an investigation. This is a personnel matter and as such we cannot comment.”
I wonder which offense the school district finds worst: a faux assassination or a teacher using a squirt gun on school property.
