Trump’s mock assassination draws ire at Texas high school

One of the boys used a gunfire sound effect from a cellphone while the other student, who was portraying Trump, fell to the ground, according to the San Antonio Express-News. The skit, titled “The Assassination of Donald Trump,” was performed as a class presentation last week for the students’ English class at John Marshall High School in San Antonio.

The boys’ teacher instructed her students to create and perform a skit following their study of Shakespeare and asked them to submit their scripts for approval, Brian Woods, superintendent for the Northside Independent School District, said in a statement on Friday.

Woods said the two students changed their skit after their original script had been submitted, and the teacher did not know beforehand that they planned on performing a mock assassination of Trump.

The teacher stopped the skit immediately, Woods said.
