EL DORADO (CBS13) — A Union Mine High School student is facing battery charges after an altercation in her classroom over a Donald Trump “Make America Great Again” campaign hat.

Cellphone video shows some of the tension inside this high school classroom.

The article goes on to state the following:

The teacher is seen trying to subdue fired-up 17-year-old senior Jo-Ann Butler after she became enraged at a classmate for wearing the “Make America Great Again” hat.

She grabbed the hat off his head.

“That’s a racist and hateful symbol,” Butler said.

She is now facing two counts of battery, one against her classmate and one against her teacher who deputies say she slapped, as he escorted her from the room.

Butler says she made the scene to express her political feelings.

“Maybe just wake people up in some type of way, because it’s not cool the environment our classroom is in,” Butler said.

  1. Yeah! Throw her in jail for assault. About time these kinds of people realize that assaulting others because you don’t like their politics is not okay.

  2. I say give her 7 lashes of the whip for the assault. Obviously she is mentally unstable and cannot control herself – maybe PMS run amok?

  3. That moron says it’s racist to wear the Trump hat but what she did is just as racist to say the Trump hat is racist! As for her parents they are a perfect example of why the young kids now a days run amok with hate for a wonderful President!
