ALREADY SNOWFLAKES EIGHT GRADERS TO PAUL RYAN DURING D.C. FIELD TRIP: NO PHOTO OP BECAUSE ‘WE ALL HATE YOU!’

Posted on

Half of the eighth graders at South Orange Middle School refused to be in this picture with Paul Ryan on Thursday

 

  • Snowflake in the making! Matthew Malespina, 13-years-old: ‘I would never take a picture with that man. Never. (But) Definitely, I would take a picture with Hillary Clinton
  • Matthew Malespina immediately texted his librarian mother Elissa Elliott Malespina  to tell her that he was so concerned meeting with Paul Ryan and she urged him to let the teachers know he was uncomfortable with it.
  • “I can’t take a picture with someone who supports a budget that would destroy public education and would leave 23 million people without healthcare,” Matthew Malespina, a student at the school, told his local newspaper, The Village Green

 

Eight grade students from South Orange Middle School in New Jersey were in Washington D.C. for a field trip when they get a ‘horrible’ news: House Speaker Paul Ryan is going to meet them!

So disturbed by the idea, Matthew Malespina, 13, immediately texted his librarian mother Elissa Elliott Malespina  to tell her that he was so concerned and she urged him to let the teachers know he was uncomfortable with it.

“I can’t take a picture with someone who supports a budget that would destroy public education and would leave 23 million people without healthcare,” Matthew Malespina, a student at the school, told his local newspaper, The Village Green

And because of the disturbing situation, teachers did not force the students to take picture with Ryan, but only those who were willing. When Ryan emerged from the Capitol on Thursday, some students who had agreed to take part were gathered on the steps to have their photograph taken. The others were stood across the street with Ryan unaware that they had refused.

Matthew also ruled out ever posing with President Trump but enthusiastically said he’d have a snap taken with Hillary Clinton.

‘I would never take a picture with that man. Never. (But) Definitely, I would take a picture with Hillary Clinton,’ he said.

South Orange Middle School students in the same grade walked out of classes earlier in the year to protest against Trump’s inauguration.

 On Facebook, his librarian mom Elissa Elliott Malespina posted: ‘So proud of Matthew!’

His mother also said:

‘I don’t think it was a sign of disrespect. I think it was a sign of peaceful protesting. A sign of disrespect would be to curse the guy off but he chose to not take a picture with a man who was clearly doing it for a photo-op. I think all of them were rather respectful.’

Ryan uploaded the photograph to Instagram, writing 'Got that #FridayFeeling' alongside it 

 

 

The children inundated the post with insults, telling Ryan they 'hate' him and pointing out to others that half of the grade had in fact refused to pose with him 

 

Elissa Malespina told DailyMail.com she was proud of her 13-year-old son Matthew for not choosing not to take part in the photo

    Good for you Matthew. When you grow up and get a job I hope you like giving all the money you earn to those who believe they’re entitled to have the government support them. Oh, wait, may you’ll be one of the moochers. Good job Mom!
