(The Hill) A high school teacher in Malvern, Ark., has resigned after posting racist comments about President Obama and first lady Michelle Obama on Facebook, according to a Friday report.
Trent Bennett relinquished his post at Malvern High School after his school district called a special board meeting Thursday, KTHV-TV said.
Bennett posted the controversial remarks on KHTV-TV’s Facebook page, calling the first lady "Michelle Obummer…America’s first chimp" on Dec. 24.
