Middle School Student Gets Into a Physical Fight With Classmates Over His 'Make America Great Again' Hat [Video]

“As a parent it’s so upsetting,” said Christina Cortina, the mother of the 12-year old who was wearing the Trump hat, and who was suspended.

“I feel like my son was made an example of, it was a tricky situation, it was politically charged.”

In cell phone video of the incident sent to News 4, the students are heard arguing over President Trump’s  proposed Mexican border wall.  The situation quickly escalates to pushing and what looks likes some punches thrown.

A Parkway District spokesperson says the incident was investigated and all the students involved have faced “consequences.”

The spokesperson adds the district is also working to sit the students down and reach an peaceful understanding.

Physical violence isn’t the answer, but we’re willing to bet the kid in the had said some provocative things during that argument.
