Students and teachers in a Spanish class at Laguna Hills High School were allegedly filmed beating a piñata resembling President Trump during class time, prompting the school district to investigate, CBS 2 reports.
The video showed teachers and students taking turns hitting a yellow-haired, red tie-wearing piñata that featured a photograph of the president’s face.
A representative of Saddleback Valley United School District told CBS 2 that the incident was investigated and “immediate action” was taken.
“This activity was not condoned, or approved, by the district, nor Laguna Hills High School,” said spokesman Mark Perez. “Personnel matters are confidential, and therefore, it is our policy to not comment on situations involving employees.”
The district did not confirm to the network whether disciplinary measures were taken against the Spanish instructors.
A Twitter user who claimed to be a student at the Orange County school said two teachers were suspended for the “disgraceful” action.
Two of our Spanish teachers were suspended as of today because of a Donald Trump piñata. We thought it was okay to use one for a quince and our teachers did too. Apparently it was just way too much and "disgraceful" according to the office.

Liberals love to speak out against inciting violence, but seem to be okay with it as long as the violence is being incited against Republicans.
It’s called mass liberal indoctrination and it is rampant in Americas corrupt education system from preschool to universities. Education reform NOW!

What can you expect from California? It has become a cesspool. I bet there are more illegals living in that state than citizens.

They are trying to indoctrinate children to hate the right and follow the left Dems. They are doing it all across the country.

It’s really sad that adults would teach this sort of behavior. Those kids will grow up hating the world. Awful!

This is unacceptable. Inciting violence on any person is not appropriate. Teaching children to disrespect their president will only lead to more School violence. Teachers beware. If your students think it’s ok to beat the president you might be next. They are what they are taught
