"Kristy Swanson, star of the 1992 film Buffy the Vampire Slayer, is back in the news thanks to her participation in a pro-Trump production focusing on the texts between two former FBI agents investigating the president for collusion. But the conservative actress took a break from rehearsals for FBI Lovebirds: UnderCovers to vent about a teacher at her son’s school whom she claims refuses to stand for the Pledge of Allegiance.

Swanson and her husband, former figure skater Lloyd Eisler, have a 12-year-old son, Magnus. According to the Buffy star, her son’s friend told her that a teacher at their school doesn’t stand for the Pledge of Allegiance, and allegedly told students that they too could skip out.

Swanson shared the story while retweeting a political message from right-wing activist Charlie Kirk urging parents to look into homeschooling their children because, he claims, schools are “rapidly being taken over by radical leftists.”
