Michigan teacher won't let students watch Trump inauguration speech

A teacher in Michigan reportedly will not allow his fourth-grade students to watch President-elect Trump's inauguration speech Friday.

In an email to parents Monday, Brett Meteyer said he will let students watch Trump's inauguration ceremony, but will not show the speech because he fears what the 45th president could say.

"Because I am concerned about my students and your children being exposed to language and behavior that is not in concert with the most conservative social and family values, I have decided to show the inauguration Donald Trump this Friday, but we will not view Mr. Trump's inauguration speech," he wrote, according to conservative radio talk show host Steve Gruber, who posted the email on Facebook.

The email said Meteyer reached out to Trump's transition team about an advance copy of the speech but had not heard back.

"I showed the speeches of Presidents Obama and Bush in 2009 and 2005, respectively, but am anxious about showing Mr. Trump's inaugural address, given his past inflammatory and degrading comments about minorities, women, and the disabled," the email continued.

"What kind of message does this send to kids? 'This president is a bad guy and kids should not watch him?' This is a piece of history and the kids should be allowed to watch," Gruber told Watchdog.org.
