School Board Member Paying Price for Anti-Trump Facebook Rant

In Virginia, Lynchburg City School Board member Jenny Poore unprofessionally ranted and denounced President-elect Donald Trump on Facebook, claiming Trump will enact a “straight white man version of America.” Poore has been known to be a controversial figure at the school, such as her decision not to stand for the Pledge of Allegiance at school board meetings to protest black deaths by police.

Since the now-deleted Facebook post, Poore has resigned from the school because she did not wish to become “a lightning rod for outside distractions.” In the Facebook post, Poore wrote the following:

“We are a nation of selfish fearful morons who thinks we can still be friends with people and like pictures of their dogs and kids on facebook even though we just voted to gut every last protection they had as human beings. The country I thought was mine was a mirage. The collective promise of decency and hope is not for me, it’s not for women, or people of color, or LGBTQ people, or the mentally ill, or the disabled, or the people on the edge.”

In the post, Poore also accused Trump as “an obvious and clear amphetamine addiction,” a “sexual assaulter,” and a coward for not releasing his tax returns. She also used profanity to address her point.

City Council member Jeff Hegelson said he was “delighted to accept her resignation,” and even criticized Poore for “posting despicable things on social media.”
