The 11 year-old Dancing Trumps from Fiske Elementary School in Wellesley, Massachusetts were banned from entering the talent show.
One of the parents complained.

Reason.com reported:

Three 11-year-old boys attending Fiske Elementary School in Wellesley, MA were forbidden by the school’s administration from performing a benign, wordless, apolitical dance routine while wearing comically oversized Donald Trump masks.

Christian Mattaliano, Marc Maggiacomo, and David Maggiacomo had been dubbed the Bobblehead Boys after performing a similar number last year, only then they wore masks bearing the face of the school’s retiring principal.

When the three boys became the Dancing Trumps at the morning edition of this past Wednesday’s school talent show, “at least one” parent complained, according to the Boston Globe, which led to school officials forbidding the boys from reprising the performance at Wednesday’s evening talent show.

Whether the complainant was offended because of pro or anti-Trump sentiments is unclear, though a similar skit performed by Wellesley grade-schoolers acting as Donald Trump and Marco Rubio was also nixed from the night show, apparently because a parent found it disparaging to the Republican Party.

One of the boys’ parents, Laurie Mattaliano, told the Globe that the experience has left the boys feeling like they did something wrong even though, “No words were spoken. It’s just pop culture. The skit took no stance in support or defamation.”
