STUDENT LEVI KELL WITH ‘TRUMP IS OUR PRESIDENT’ SIGN ESCORTED OUT OF UNIVERSITY OF OKLAHOMA BECAUSE IT’S OFFENSIVE, BUT ANTI-TRUMP SIGNS OK
- “He said that I could not have the sign in the stadium because Trump is offensive,”
- Levi pointed out that a group of anti-Trump supporters had been allowed to carry signs into the stadium.
( Fox News ) Al Roker, the “Today” show’s chief weather-guesser, has been crisscrossing the fruited plain attempting to set world records at various universities.
On March 27, Roker helped students at the University of Oklahoma set the world record for largest human image of a cloud and largest human image of a lightning bolt.
But civil engineering major Levi Kell was not among the students who set the world record inside the university’s football stadium. That’s because Levi was escorted from the premises after he refused to turn over a homemade poster supporting President Trump.
Levi’s sign read, “Trump is our president.” The letters “OU” were colored in Sooner red.
An unnamed woman stopped him and told Levi he would not be allowed to enter the stadium with the sign.
I invited Levi to tell his story on my Fox News Talk radio program.
“She said that Trump is not a positive figure to have on our campus or the Today Show,” he said. “I said, ‘Ma’am, it’s just stating a fact – that Trump is our president.”
She relented and allowed Levi to enter the stadium – only to be stopped by a second individual.
“He said that I could not have the sign in the stadium because Trump is offensive,” he recounted.
A third person eventually approached Levi and told him that he could not remain in the stadium with the sign.
Levi pointed out that a group of anti-Trump supporters had been allowed to carry signs into the stadium.
“He said I could not have the sign because the letters O and U in red are trademarked by the university,” Levi said.
Levi refused to part ways with his sign – so he agreed to leave – under escort.
“There are lots of campus protests over the president,” Levi told me. “My sign was just stating a fact. I wasn’t trying to offend anyone.”
