A high school biology teacher is on administrative leave after she’d mocked a student for the support of President Trump and others call “a number of Trumpies” in Round Rock, Texas.

The incident took place on the fifth day back from summer vacation, Aug. 22, McNeil High School outside of Austin, according to district officials.

The bullied student’s mother claims that the public school teacher said: “By the way, I hate Donald Trump with a burning passion and he is a complete douchebag.”

She told KHOU11, the instructor singled out her son for his conservative views and support for Trump’s tax plan, calling him “Trumpy” in place of his name, and said things like, “Hey, Trumpy, do you have an answer?” or “What do you think, Trumpy?”

She said that her son did not want to talk about the politics in the science class and felt embarrassed to be targeted.

At the end of the lesson, the mother said, the teacher puts a final insult against her son, mocking his conviction: “Now, you’re not going to fight me when we start talking about evolution, are you?”

His parents made a formal complaint against McNeil High School, which has more than 2,600 students.

District spokeswoman Jenny LaCoste-Caputo told Fox News the teacher was immediately removed from the classroom after the district informed of the alleged incident, or a “political discussion” that took place in the AP biology class.

“In Round Rock ISD, our goal is to create a classroom where students feel safe and respected,” LaCoste-Caputo said in a statement. “The teacher removed from the classroom, pending the outcome of the review, and remains on administrative leave if the right action is considered.”

The teacher is assigned, other tasks that are not her interaction with students. She is still getting paid.
