A Michigan school district fired a popular high school teacher and coach after he pointed out that "Trump is our president" on social media.

Varsity baseball coach and social studies teacher Justin Kucera said Walled Lake school district officials hauled him into a closed-door meeting after he indicated his support for President Trump's speech to reopen schools. He told the Washington Free Beacon the Walled Lake Western principal and district superintendent gave him an ultimatum: be fired or resign.

"I was required to meet with [human resources], the superintendent, and my principal [on July 10]. They initially took my statement on why I tweeted those tweets and they told me they would have a decision about my future employment in the upcoming days. When they completed the meeting, I was told I had the option to either be fired or resign." Kucera said.

Neither the school district nor the principal responded to requests for comment.

Kucera said the statement that cost him his job was intended to unify, rather than divide.

"I know a lot of people are just rooting for Trump to fail, and I don't think that anybody should do that," Kucera said. "Agree with him or not, you should want the president to do well. I apologized that [my tweet] brought so much negative attention, but I'm not sorry for what I said."

Kucera was a popular figure at the high school before the episode, according to parents and former teachers. Even his detractors lauded him on social media as they condemned the tweet. One student said she would need to find a new "favorite teacher" after seeing the missive. Multiple sources said that the teacher never brought politics into the classroom.

    • So, if Johnny was caught smoking its ok for me to smoke... Just because Obama doubled the deficit doesn't make it right for Trump to sign off on adding 5 Trillion to the debt.  We must cut spending and taxes must reflect sufficient revenue to meet current obligations and pay down the debt... we must not approve budgets that add to the debt.

      The welfare state must be ended... we can not allow illegal aliens to enter as we need those jobs for able-bodied welfare recipients... we must enforce the limits on the welfare reform act signed into law under Regan... 3yrs max on welfare, then it's cut off permanently.  We need welfare to work programs that function properly and actually return welfare recipients to work.  Bill Clinton's waver, by EO, on the Limits to welfare payments, allowed those payments to be made under the emergency orders of the President and/or Governors. That EO must be vacated and the welfare reform act requirements enforced.

    • Tell that to the LUNG CANCER FAIRY.  I do not adhere to that kind of thinking on any laws.  Just because somebody gets away with breaking a law makes no one else less guilty for doing so.

      In no way do I approve of significant increase to the National Debt.   

      The main reason I disapprove of adding any new expenses is because Congress mostly cons folks on that.   They will never cut a dime on anything.

      I agree on ending the welfare state, but it's not nearly enough.

      We have a runaway government.   Way too many on the payroll.   When Pres. Trump took office, one of the first things he did was put in a hiring freeze and I cheered.   WE need him to do that again and again til the numbers come down.   Normal attrition of civilian employees of the government is 5% a year.   Do a year long freeze.  Couple it with closing an agency or a few.   Say the national education dept.   Do the freeze for a year and then a 2 for 1.  As in Lose 2 to hire 1 for 6 months and then do another Freeze     The hiring freeze is a smart move rather than a RIF.  RIFs cost money and they tend to retain some that shouldn't be based on performance.

      Keep the ideas coming.  This is the way we can help make it happen.

  • Didn't he know that he can say anything about promoting commies and marxists, but, anything about America and our Legendary President Donald J. Trump is verbotten. Time to fire the principal and superintendent. Watch how fast the left comes to their defense. The parents need to do the right thing and demand Kucera is rehired. 

    • That's why school board elections are so important. The libtards have ingrained themselves in all facets of our lives. If I were on that school board I would give the the superintendent and principal one chance to correct their mistake, otherwise I would vote for their dismissal. This shows how bad it has become and how much influence the left has over ordinary life in America.


    • Exactly... we need strong conservatives to run for school board seats...

  • There are some very sick people in this country, and we need to eliminate them wherever they pop up like rats, so they don't contaminate the rest our country.


  • Somebody hired this wonderful gentleman and intelligent man, he is a true patriot he spoke his mind and look what happened. The schools, take your kids out! Get them in private schools, homeschool or Christian Schools

  • No doubt that's a big lawsuit in the coming, which he will ein big time. We won't hear about it because the MSM suppresses such success stories. 

  • We got work to do folks.
