IN the thoroughly Blue State of Delaware, idiot parents have raised their idiot kids to think it's "ok" to bully an 11 Y/O boy for being named "Trump", calling him "stupid", "idiot", tormenting the poor kid to the point that he is CHANGING HIS NAME.

And, instead of CRUSHING THE LITTLE JACKASS BULLIES, the LEFT IDIOT SCHOOL SUGGESTED HE GO BY "JOSHUA T." instead of his full name.

Outrageous:





Joshua Trump, 11, is changing his name over bullying at school: 'They call him stupid'


Eleven-year-old Joshua Trump is changing his name after being bullied by his classmates.

Megan Trump Berto and Bobby Berto of Claymont, Del., say their son Joshua began having a rough time in the Brandywine School District when President Trump starting running for office. “They curse at him, they call him an idiot, they call him stupid,” Megan Berto, who is not related to President Trump, told Philadelphia news station WPVI on Tuesday.

“He was getting ridiculed and bullied for the fact that his last name was Trump,” said stepfather Bobby Berto.

Joshua was homeschooled for a year, but in September, he entered Talley Middle School in Wilmington, Del., where the teasing continued.
Megan and Bobby reached out to WPVI because they believed that the Brandywine School District wasn’t intervening, despite previous meetings with Joshua’s teachers. “He said he hates himself, and he hates his last name, and he feels sad all the time, and he doesn’t want to live feeling like that anymore, and as a parent that’s scary,” Megan Berto told WPVI.

Principal Mark Mayer tells Yahoo Lifestyle that when Joshua started school, his parents were worried. “We discussed ideas such as, during roll call, the teacher would say ‘Joshua T.’ instead of ‘Trump,'” he says.

That is not fair to the child. Just because his name is Trump, that does not mean he is stupid

It means his parents are stupid

"Leftists" start their political careers age ten now? Bizarre.

Kids will be kids, and there wouldn't be a problem if Trump hadn't made the name such a magnet for mockery.

Are you saying the family should have changed their name when Trump was elected?

That is one option

Or they could have given their child a different last name.

I can't speak for him but I suspect the idea was more along the lines of "[why would you name your kid after a scuzzy real estate mogul]?"

That or they're really big Hearts players. Or Bridge. Or...





Of course, I do see that "Trump" is the mother's middle name. I've got nothing for that...

They should have changed their last name as soon as they became aware of Trump. :lol:

This isn’t a party issue, it’s a crappy tweener issue. Hopefully the offenders learned an important lesson in treating others how they want to be treated.

I'm not sure that Trump is the mother's midde name and not simply a second surname, often kept to match the child's name or the mother's original (maiden?) surname and frequently separated with a hyphen from another surname assumed after marriage. It may have been the child's father's name and kept by the mother even after re-marrying. Prior to Trump's candidacy (and the eventual resist, resist, resist nonsense) what would have clued the mother as to why the child's surname of Trump should ever become a problem?

Well..if anyone wants to know why kids bully other kids all that they have to do to find out is look right here in this thread. There's some fine examples.

You all should be ashamed of yourselves.

This from the Barack Hussein Obama crowd.

Anyway, it's a shame that Trump has tarnished the name for his entire clan and those who share his name.

Because a decade after he was born a celebrity with the same surname would become an unpopular president?

This is ridiculous. Bullying isn't even real. It is a conspiracy made up by weak people so that they can get the government to hurt their enemies... ones they could never touch with out the help of a overzealous, sexist and racist police force.

He is... just a pacifist way by changing his name. That is the wrong way.

Yep... You got that right, Kal.
Don't let anyone tell you that kids are born bullies.
It is learned behavior. I hope those who think this boy should cowtow to what some suggest the child do to avoid being bullied, change his name or having his name shortened to Joshua T. at roll call, are not parents.

I was going to say that could not happen because no one in my family is qualified for the job, but then I remembered Trump
