The principal at a progressive Manhattan private school told parents in an email last week that the Trump presidency was more troubling than Vietnam, the assassination of Martin Luther King Jr., the September 11 attacks and Watergate, The Post has learned.
Steve Nelsons scorching missive managed to roil several parents at the $46,000 per year Calhoun School no small feat considering the Upper West Side bastions blaring liberal bent.

My gosh, what an idiot! This person needs to go to the 9-11 museum tomorrow.

This principal isn’t smart enough to handle the fry basket at McDonalds let alone run a school. My kid would be out of there instantly.
Wow, what a pathetic schmuck.
Another a-hole that proves the lefties minds have been taken over by some government created parasite and can no longer think rationally or reasonably for themselves.
Must not be very old.....or brain dead
A picture of this pompous ass.
I can’t take this person seriously because of his obvious lack of commitment to public education. /sarc
Private school? Works for me.
That sparked this debate with somebody on the left who doesn't like Steve's "limousine liberalism."
Noted "humanitarian" Matt Damon wrote the introduction to Steve's book.
“Journalism” is being taught to Pre K? Seriously? No wonder reporters are brain washed.
He didn’t mention Pearl Harbor either. Or Woodstock.
Gaydar going off on this ahole loon....
