If you are unfamiliar with the story of Bella Moscato, she is a student in Long Island, New York who chose Donald Trump as the subject of a hero project at school.
She was then forbidden to use Trump and told to select another hero.
Sixth-grade student Bella Moscato was given a homework assignment where she was to write about who she considers a hero.
Bella picked Donald Trump.
Bella and her parents say the teacher forbid her from picking Trump but let another student pick Obamapic.twitter.com/NN8D6XxcmP

Bella said the thing that got her angry was the teacher’s hypocrisy:
“The thing I didn’t get, she was ok with somebody doing Barack Obama but not ok with doing Donald Trump? That’s the thing that got me angry. I didn’t like that.”
Former Fox and NBC personality Megyn Kelly expressed her disgust with the story.
This is insane. Good for this kid and these parents for standing up for her rights. What is happening to us? https://t.co/wXppXLu608

I try to avoided politics on Sundays, particularly Sunday mornings…but I will say that we must pray – I mean really pray – that our nation can agree to disagree again, or we will break apart. https://t.co/hR5ZmZoSjF

The Moscatos are seeking an apology from the teacher.
