Ahmed Mohamed made national news when he built a clock and brought it to school. The school allegedly thought it was a bomb, even though absolutely no precautions, like calling the bomb squad or evacuating the school, were taken.
Still Mohamed was Muslim, which means that the usual suspects – Republicans, Bill Maher and Fox News – reflexively came to the school’s defense.
Despite the fact that it’s been a month, Fox is still at it. Fox & Friends host Anna Kooiman made the claim last Wednesday that Mohamed had a “history of trouble.”
What kind of trouble? Blowing soap bubbles and shutting off a projector.
“The techy teenager may not be as innocent as he seems,” Kooiman said.
Quoting a report published in The Dallas Morning News, Kooiman explained how Ahmed’s seventh-grade history teacher, Ralph Kubiak, had described the teen as a ‘weird little kid’ who had allegedly been suspended from school after being caught blowing soap bubbles in a bathroom. The teacher called Ahmed ‘one of those kids that could either be CEO of a company or head of a gang,’ Kooiman noted.
She added that Ahmed had been caught making mischief in school, such as creating ‘a homemade remote [which] he used to prank a teenager by shutting off a projector in class.’
“It’s unknown if President Obama is aware of his past disciplinary problems in school,” Kooiman said.
