Fort Collins Principal Wishes Trump Death in Facebook Post
A Poudre School District elementary school principal is in hot water today after commenting on Facebook that she wished death on the President of the United States.
Lindsey Walton is the principal of the Irish Elementary School at 515 Irish Dr, in Fort Collins. The Coloradoan is reporting that she made a Facebook comment that said "Good. Maybe they'll both die" when referencing a story about Donald Trump and South Dakota governor flying together on Air Force One.
The Poudre School District said this to the Coloradoan:
Poudre School District is aware of an inappropriate Facebook comment made by a PSD principal who was responding to a post from a national news outlet. Per district practice, PSD will not comment about personnel matters. That said, we do not tolerate any messages — made verbally or online, including on social media platforms — that are aimed at hurting people and that deliberately cause division. Every PSD staff member, and particularly administrators, must set positive examples for our students and are held to a higher standard.
Lindsey Walton's Facebook page and Irish Elementary School's Facebook page have been restricted to viewers.
