A West Virginia middle school teacher was suspended after berating a student who caught him watching inappropriate material in his office.

Jeffrey Province said he was the first student to arrive Tuesday to his math class at East Bank Middle School, where he saw his teacher looking at his computer, reported WOWK-TV.

“I saw something no 13-year-old should ever see in a school,” said Jeffrey, a sixth-grader.

The boy said he reported what he’d seen to the principal — and he said the teacher barged into his English class later that day to confront him.

Another student recorded cell phone video of the teacher, identified as Thomas Yohn, scolding the teen in front of his classmates.

“Next time you open your big, stinking mouth, pal, I will write you up and send you to the office for coming into my room without permission,” Yohn says. “Is that clear?”

“What I watch as an adult is my choice,” the teacher continues. “You as a child wait in the hall until you’re invited into my room — is that clear?”

Yohn then accused the student of attempting to blackmail him — which the teen denies.

“He said, ‘I’m going to get an A this quarter, or I am going to tell that you are watching inappropriate things on TV and I saw it,'” Yohn said.

“So go ahead, tell — isn’t that what I told you to do?” he continued. “Now I’m telling you, you keep your big flap shut. Because I’m a grownup and I can watch what I want, and if you ever set foot into my room without permission again it’ll be the last time you step in my room — is that clear?”

The teen’s mother said school officials never contacted her about the incident, but she instead learned of it from social media.

“His grandpa said, ‘You need to get on Facebook and watch this video,’ and when I did I was shocked,” said Carmelene Short, the boy’s mother.

Short said school officials eventually told her that Yohn had been suspended during an internal investigation, but administrators declined to comment on the personnel matter.

Jeffrey stayed home from school Wednesday and said he can’t imagine returning to school if Yohn is there.

“I was afraid that he would do something to hurt me, because I told on him and I might make him lose his job,” the boy said. “So that’s pretty much the reason why I’m scared.”

‘Trump brought a whole new meaning to white noise’: Colbert says president gave crackheads a bad name

Published

"They say that the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting Donald Trump to shut up," said Stephen Colbert as part of his debate wrap-up on Wednesday night.

"He brought a whole new meaning to white noise," the host quipped on "A Late Show."

"I don't know what Chris Wallace was supposed to do," said Colbert. "At the next debate, they should just give the moderator a button to bring on the slime. I'm not the only one who despised last night's debate, according to a CBS poll, of the people who watched it, 69 percent felt annoyed. Annoyed? Really, evidently, 'gouging out my eyes with a grapefruit spoon' was not an option."

‘Classic projection’: Mary Trump says the president was triggered when Biden called a policy ‘not smart’

Published

President Donald Trump's niece Mary not only spent her life around the president and his family, but she also has the benefit of being a psychologist who could legitimately assess the life and mental health of her uncle.

Speaking to MSNBC's Lawrence O'Donnell, she explained that in one particular moment in the Tuesday evening debate, Trump seemed triggered by former Vice President Joe Biden's use of the phrase "not smart" in reference to a policy. Trump went off.

"Did you use the word 'smart?'" Trump asked after Biden insulted Trump's coronavirus plan as not being "smart."

"So you said you went to Delaware State but you forgot the name of your college," Trump continued, falsely claiming something Biden never said. "You didn't go to Delaware state. You graduated either the lowest or almost the lowest in your class. Don't ever use the word 'smart' with me. Don't ever use that word."

Trump attacks NBC for covering a hurricane instead of his Nobel Prize nomination: ‘These people are sick’

Published

on

In a series of bizarre nonsequiturs in Duluth, Minnesota Wednesday evening, President Donald Trump unleashed on NBC News for covering a monster hurricane hitting Louisiana and Mississippi instead of talking about his friend nominating him for a Nobel Prize.

Former President Barack Obama won the Nobel Peace Prize at the start of his presidency, and like the ever-illusive Emmy Trump also hasn't won, the Nobel Prize has never been within his grasp. The Obamas were nominated for seven Emmys for a series of things they produced with Netflix. They won an Emmy for outstanding directing for a documentary/nonfiction program for "American Factory."
