SPEAKING OUT: Texas Valedictorian on School Cutting His Speech on God, Constitution

As seen on Fox and Friends

This morning on Fox and Friends, we heard briefly from Remington Reimer, the Texas high school valedictorian whose commencement address was cut short when school officials objected to his references to God and the Constitution.

Yesterday, we learned some shocking allegations from Reimer's lawyer, who claims that the school principal threatened to try to ruin Reimer's entry into the Naval Academy.

In an interview, Reimer said he was amazed that his mic was cut off as he tried to address his fellow students at Joshua High School.

"They wanted me to give a speech yet they're almost writing it for me," he said.

We heard more on this story from Trace Gallagher on America Live this afternoon, including a clip from Reimer explaining that his principal told him he "would do anything he could to punish me."
