Face of the day


Logan Autry


For many schools in America, it?s against the dress code for a student to wear a hat to class.

However, that isn?t the case for Powers-Ginsburg Elementary in Fresno, California. Still, after 9-year-old Logan Autry wore a Donald Trump hat to school for three days, he was eventually banned from wearing it again.

The reason: School officials saw it as a safety concern.

According to ABC 7:

For three days straight the third grader wore the hat to class. But each day, more and more classmates began confronting him at recess.

?I still want to keep my hat. It?s not the hat that draws attention, it?s just my personality that the other children do not like,? said Autry.

Autry recently moved to Fresno from the foothills, he loves politics and American history.

?He knows more than I do. He knows more about this election than I know, it?s kind of embarrassing. You know, like are you smarter than a third grader kinda thing. But he is just very adamant about his beliefs and his rights. He wants to be a politician that?s his goal,? said Angela Hoffknecht, Logan?s guardian.
Logan got the hat at a Trump rally earlier this year.

And there?s been plenty of fierce response to the banning of his Trump hat.

One commenter felt it was an attack on Freedom of Speech:

…Some called it insanity:

One guy doesn?t even like Trump at all, but supported Autry?s right to wear the hat:

Others thought it would be okay, but only if the same standard was applied evenly:

Of course, some argued the double standards are pretty striking, indeed:

While more than a few suspected the teachers made a purely political decision:

Amidst all the backlash, Autry believes Trump ?is what the country needs,? and outside of school ? has no plans to take off his hat.
