A teacher in Minnesota was placed ‘on paid leave’ earlier this week following a vicious tweet that urged liberal activists to “kill” President Trump’s newest appointment to the US Supreme Court.

“Over the weekend, the district has received a complaint regarding an employee,” said Mark A. Zuzek, the superintendent of Intermediate School District #917. “The employee has been placed on paid administrative leave pending the outcome of the investigation.”
