The president of North Macedonia heard a girl with Down’s Syndrome was being picked on by students AND their parents, so he personally walked her to school 😤💪

This guy might be an elected official, but in my mind he's an absolute king:

President Stevo Pendarovski held hands with Embla Ademi as they walked to her school in the western city of Gostivar.

He also spoke to Embla's parents about the challenges she and her family face on a daily basis.

Pendarovski was pictured walking hand-in-hand with Embla on Monday after he heard that she was being bullied by classmates.

Some parents had also complained that Embla was in the same school as their children and even boycotted classes that the schoolgirl attended.

Parents at the school had alleged that Embla was "aggressive" due to her having Down's, so the school isolated her in an hallway with a space heater to keep her warm.

Her parents were not happy with that.

At the insistence of Embla's parents, the school agreed to integrate Embla back into her class.

But outraged parents protested against the integration plans and boycotted the classes, meaning that since February 1, the 11-year-old girl has been sitting alone in a classroom.

That's when President Stevo Pendarovski got involved and walked Embla to school.

It may seem weird seeing a politician defend someone with Down's, considering most modern politicians only stick their necks out to support the right to abort such children.

Here's what the president's office said in a statement:

"The President said that the behaviour of those who endanger children's rights is unacceptable, especially when it comes to children with atypical development," the president's office said in a press release.

"They should not only enjoy the rights they deserve, but also feel equal and welcome in the school desks and schoolyard. It is our obligation, as a state, but also as individuals, and the key element in this common mission is empathy.

Politicians: less power-grabbing and fear-mongering and more protecting the vulnerable and hurting!
