‘They call him stupid’: Boy drops Trump name due to bullying


The hatred of the good for being the good. Joshua Trump should change his name to Barack Hussein Obama. Obama was the worst President in American history, but that name has cred. Little Barack would be a hero among his witless leftist classmates. But a boy named Trump?

Joshua’s parents had assumed that the bullying would subside as their son moved into middle school, but those hopes were soon dashed, they said.

“They curse at him, they call him an idiot, they call him stupid,” the boy’s mother, Megan Trump, told WPVI.

Trump and Berto met with school officials to discuss their son’s previous issues with his name. Principal Mark Mayer acknowledged that the boy’s last name has become an issue at the 800-student school, with some educators taking steps to not even say it aloud.

“I do know the teachers were aware of the last name, and I know in speaking with the student that the teachers do their very best to try not to say his last name,” Mayer said….
