New Jersey high school removes all Trump logos from yearbook


A New Jersey high school is under investigation by the school district for allegedly removing all Trump related content from their yearbook.

The free speech infraction was first noticed by student Grant Bernardo, who wore a “Make America Great Again” t-shirt to school on picture day. When he saw his photo in the yearbook, he was rather stunned.

“I sent it to my mom and dad, just like, ‘you won’t believe this,’” Grant Bernardo told The Inquirer. “I like Trump but it’s history, too. Wearing that shirt memorializes the time.”

The other student wearing Trump gear that day originally thought it was a mistake.

“Maybe they just cropped it out and it wasn’t something I should worry about, they just did it,” Wyatt Dobrovich-Fago told WABC-TV.

However intentional tampering with the yearbook became obvious when Wyatt’s sister, Montana, had her Trump yearbook quote omitted too.

“I like thinking big, if you’re going to be thinking anything, you might as well think big,” the quote reportedly said. “I sent it in on time, everything was good, and it wasn’t there,” Montana told WABC-TV.

Parents and others close to the school took to Twitter to criticize the suppression of basic rights.

School superintendent Cheryl Dyer is working hard to quell those responsible for the photoshop.

“The high school administration does not condone any censorship,” she reportedly wrote to parents of kids at the school. “The actions of the staff involved will be addressed as soon as the investigation is concluded.”
