NJ School Censors Trump T-shirts and Quotes from Yearbook

Oh no! Two New Jersey high school students decided to wear pro-Trump apparel in their school photos. This looks like a job for the Thought Police!

Thankfully, their classmates were spared from seeing an alternative viewpoint expressed in their yearbooks, as someone at Wall Township High School photoshopped out the logos on their t-shirts, according to a report from ABC 7 NY. 

At first, junior Wyatt Dobrovich-Fago thought the missing logo was an accident. But then his sister Montana, who is the school's freshman class president, had her Trump quote completely omitted from the yearbook. The senior class president's FDR quote remained intact. 

Perhaps two accidents in a row? Perhaps -- except then, Junior Grant Berardo noticed that the "Make America Great Again" logo on his t-shirt had been completely blacked out of his photo. Two Trump omissions seems odd, but three seems downright intentional.

The school district has condemned any sort of yearbook censorship. The superintendent said in a statement, "There is nothing in our student dress code that would prevent a student from expressing his or her political views. The high school administration does not condone any censorship." 

How all mentions of President Trump mysteriously disappeared from the yearbook is still under investigation.
