A Florida high-school teacher has been suspended for issuing students a final exam with a “wholly inappropriate” question about GOP presidential front-runner Donald Trump.

Students at Palm Beach Lakes High School Law Academy in Palm Beach were recently given a test by instructor Malik Leigh with the following question:

If Donald Trump becomes president of the United states, we are:

A. Screwed

B. Screwed

C. Screwed

D. Screwed behind a really YUGE wall that Mexico pays for.

Principal Cheryl McKeever deemed the question “wholly inappropriate,” the Palm Beach Post reported Thursday.

“Specifically, the exam materials contain inaccurate content, irrelevant material, unprofessional use of language, inappropriate use of language and contain content outside of and not consistent with the curriculum for the Law Academy,” the principal said in a letter.

Mr. Leigh said his question about the Republican presidential hopeful was supposed to be “funny.”

“I’m not pushing a political agenda. I don’t see why that would be offensive. They all tie into the classroom discussion,” Mr. Leigh told the newspaper.

The attorney and teacher has filed a lawsuit against the school. He claims that he and 30 other teachers are not being rehired for political reasons.

“The next generations are being indoctrinated in psychotic Leftist new think and new speak and then we are surprised that they are so stupid & crazy and uneducated and worst of all unable to think for themselves,” a reader at The Blaze responded on Friday.

“The wholesale destruction of our public school system is one of the main problems we need to deal with as a country if we expect to continue as a democratic republic,” added another.
