Trump slogans photoshopped out of high school yearbook pictures

Parents of students at a New Jersey high school are angry that their children’s yearbook pictures were photoshopped in order to remove pro-Trump slogans from their clothing.

Two students had their shirts altered in the photo and a third had gave her formal quote as a Trump quote and it did not make it into the yearbook.

“I want all the yearbooks reissued. Everybody gets a brand-new yearbook,” raged Joseph Berardo, whose 17-year-old son, Grant, wore a Trump T-shirt on picture day last fall.

“And I want a letter from the administration explaining why the yearbooks are being reissued, and it should be used as a teaching moment related to the First Amendment in civil discourse,” the father went on.

Berardo says he purchased $110 worth of photos of Grant in his “historic” shirt, but when they received the pictures there was no Trump slogan to be seen.

According to Berardo said he made sure there were no dress-code restrictions before Grant wore the MAGA shirt to school that day. “It was the first election he took an interest in, and it was an interesting way to memorialize it.”

“I don’t think there was a deep-seated plot here, but I think there’s a yearbook committee and a yearbook adviser, and somewhere in the mix someone or several people decided to censor three students,” Berardo stated. “The fact that the committee found it OK to censor the president’s name or anything that wasn’t offensive is just wrong.”

Berardo has scheduled a meeting with Principal Rosaleen Sirchio as well as yearbook advisor Susan Parsons for Monday.

“We have never made any action against any political party.” Said Parsons. When asked if she had any idea who altered the Trump images, she said, “I’m going to hang up.”
