High School Students Stage Mock Assassination of President-Elect Trump

President-Elect Donald Trump faces a very real threat of assassination. There exist many powerful people who will likely not benefit from his policies. Already there have been threats to President-Elect Trump, and many people associated with his election win.

A skit portraying the assassination of President-elect Donald Trump by two 10th grade students at Marshall High School provoked anger and dismay from the parents of a student who watched it unfold last week.

Harold and Melinda Bean said that in the skit, entitled “The Assassination of Donald Trump,” one of the boys made a gunfire sound effect with his cell phone as the other boy, portraying Trump, fell to the ground in mock death.

 All of the students were required to submit descriptions of their English class presentations beforehand to be approved by their teacher, the parents said, but these two students in particular, changed their skit afterward.
