What Kelly -- back in session on the docket today the grinch who stole Christmas right from the classroom.
Second graders in January New York learning about the North Pole naturally Chris Kringle comes up in the course of the conversation.
But the teacher leaves a heaping mound of coal in the children's stockings telling a room full of seven year -- That's -- does not real don't worry kids watching at home that's nonsense.
And a teacher went on to say that their parents.
Their parents are the ones putting presents under the tree.
Now there's an angry army of Santa's helpers fuming over the you'll -- blasphemy.
The school is refusing to comment for now but parents are outraged so should this teacher be disciplined.
Joining me now former prosecutor and cohost of the five right here -- -- Kimberly Guilfoyle and former prosecutor now defense attorney John -- billboard.
-- right panel so this is not the first time a teacher has taken to a roomful of students.
And told this out and out lie about -- actually get that straight while the children watching right now.
We'll engage in a theoretical discussion about maybe -- would if she could have been right right we all know there is a Santa.
And I don't know why this teacher said what she said Kimberly but should she be disciplined I think he says it.
That the fact that he did that says he's kind of a mean spirited Angry Birds then I think the kitchen right hurt any Christmas cards or any Christmas presents -- -- -- reprimanded by -- school I think this is very inappropriate and damaging behavior that she engaged.
And I let let's just say John -- as you're you're playing the part of you know the mean teachers defense attorney.
Let's just say in a hypothetical world.
This is pure you know speculation and and and fantasy that there is not a Santa -- -- -- -- that the teacher which she said was in some way true.
OPEC would that defend her if the school did want to discipline her in the face of these parents outrage it.
Absolutely what let's put -- in perspective I have never known an eight year old to require of long term therapy after finding out that -- shops at target and drives the family minivan dads and I think that's what this -- -- -- That haven't met him that poses and an audio guy named Moses here at -- because he's -- talented -- -- -- having problems to this day.
Because of it I consists say that as certain anchor on this -- is still out over some information that was shared with her many many many years ago.
I still believe in Santa did you not -- you know I believe him because my father once told me there will always -- -- stands up for as long as you are loved.
Therefore I'm gonna believe in can't -- forever but the with this teacher did.
Is not something she's she should be disciplined -- actually apologized and retracted and I think the parents can make no late.
Well we seeing Kimberly in other instances teachers -- really thrown under the bus for doing as not forced to write formal letters of apology I forced to sit down with the students.
You know examined by the school board look at this is -- movie -- nephews she works for the show beautiful little boys look at that look at what it says but behind Santa will mean.
-- lose it for this teacher to take that away.
Yeah I don't even just throw her under the -- -- horrendous can't says a blend hit a good -- that's good heated there and let me tell you something okay.
I like what this lady did it all every year I dressed up on Christmas -- and my special outfit.
For -- to come down the chimney and mom want I -- -- they need to viewers think -- dynamic and really got -- running a quarter of this year fifth until I mean.
Yeah I think -- night I think he's gotta -- it.
We -- -- sue over this because we've talked the talk about emotional inflection a dead talent which an emotional distress over less than nest.
Could ever be a civil lawsuit it was an -- -- Kimberly in the -- and -- -- This is America baby absolutely he can bring a lawsuit and -- you have some kind of damages emotional suffering and need counseling a cabinet and I get an injunction against her so she couldn't manage about that area as Johnny or Bonnie quickly know what these kids because they can't sitting next to somebody believes -- -- that celebrate -- has been facing have to go now -- going to be doing for everything that can't happen.
