Dallas Teacher Who "Shot" Trump In Her School At The Inauguration, Gets A Dose Of Reality.
Water guns, last I checked, are pretty cheap. However, for one Dallas teacher, using one could be the most expensive mistake she’s ever made.
The Dallas Morning News reported that Payal Modi, a teacher with the Dallas Independent School District, has been placed on administrative leave after she posted video of herself shooting a water gun at a projected image of President Donald Trump
The eight-second video was posted on Jan. 20, the date of Trump’s inauguration. It showed Modi, an art teacher at W.H. Adamson High School, inside a classroom firing at a white board with the visage of the new president on it.
While laughs could be heard in the background of the video, it was unclear whether students were present or it was other school employees. Here’s the footage:
Unconfirmed reports — mostly made up by me — say that Modi originally intended to use a Super Soaker. However, as a liberal, she believed nobody really needs a water gun that powerful.
According to The Washington Times, Modi originally posted the video on her Instagram account with the caption, “Watching the #inauguration in my classroom like…. #no #stop #denial #squirtgun #hypocrisy #powerless.”
It didn’t take long for the denizens of social media, agog at what seems to be a mock assassination against the new president by a public school teacher inside a classroom, to quickly track Modi down.
For her part, Modi deleted the post and made her account private — a tactic which, as countless previous examples have shown, works flawlessly every time.
“Today, we were made aware of a social media posting being circulated involving a teacher at W.H. Adamson High School,” the Dallas Independent School District said in a statement. “The teacher has been placed on administrative leave and the district has opened an investigation. This is a personnel matter and, as such, we cannot comment.”
Ah well. Cheer up, Ms. Modi. With any luck, Trump’s inauguration will only be the second-most traumatic thing in your life to come out of the events of Jan. 20.
