Covington Catholic High School in Park Hills, Kentucky was forced to cancel classes Tuesday after a video featuring several students went viral on social media, reports USA Today.
The video -featuring students and a Native American tribal leader in Washington, DC- was posted on Twitter by a since-suspended account over the weekend.
“After meeting with local authorities, we have made the decision to cancel school and be closed on Tuesday, January 22, in order to ensure the safety of our students, faculty and staff,” confirmed the school’s principle.
“All activities on campus will be cancelled for the entire day and evening. Students, parents, faculty and staff are not to be on campus for any reason. Please continue to keep the Covington Catholic Community in your prayers,” he added.

MEDIA MELTDOWN: CNN Article Compares JOURNALISTS to US Soldiers, Veterans
CNN found itself in hot-water among US soldiers and veterans over the weekend, publishing a story that compared America’s journalists to those who have fought and died defending our freedoms.
The article, titled “The press isn’t the enemy, it’s the protector” was written by Joseph Holt and appeared on the network’s site Friday; urging Americans to “thank” reporters the same way they praise members of the military.
“We thank soldiers for their service because they devote themselves to protecting our freedoms, and we should. But we should also thank the media for the same reason — especially when the stakes have never been higher,” writes Holt.
Criticism of the article went viral on social media within minutes, with a reporter for the Daily Caller calling the story “disgraceful” and “minimizing the true sacrifice of our armed forces.”

A NEW LOW: Media Suggests ‘Missing Melania’ a Result of Trump’s ‘DOMESTIC ABUSE’
The mainstream media’s full-fledged meltdown regarding President Trump took a disturbing turn this week, with some in the press suggesting Melania’s recovery from kidney surgery may be a cover-up to conceal “domestic abuse.”
Jamil Smith, a senior writer for Rolling Stone magazine, led the charge over the weekend, saying he “suspects” the First Lady’s absence could be the result of “concealing abuse.”
I wish that I didn’t suspect that the prolonged, poorly explained public absence of Melania Trump could be about concealing abuse. I wish that it was a ludicrous prospect. I wish that the @POTUS wasn’t a man with a history of abusing women, including those to whom he is married.

Atlantic senior editor David Frum also suggested the President may be using the Secret Service to help conceal potential abuse, writing “Suppose President Trump punched the First Lady in the White House (federal property = federal jurisdiction), then ordered the Secret Service to conceal the assault.”
Suppose President Trump punched the First Lady in the White House (federal property = federal jurisdiction), then ordered the Secret Service to conceal the assault. POTUS has Article II authority over Secret Service. Is that obstruction? Under Sekulow/Dowd, apparently NO

“Mainstream media members jumped the shark and took Trump Derangement Syndrome to new heights by concocting tales of domestic abuse when trying to determine first lady Melania Trump’s whereabouts before she showed up to a White House event on Monday night,” writes Fox News.
