While it’s much too early to write President Obama‘s epitaph as the 44th president of the United States, the behavior this week at a Milwaukee high school named after the president is a proper and fitting reflection of his tenure as chief executive.

The Barack Obama School of Career and Technical Education — previously known as Custer High School — went into a “code red” condition Wednesday after a brawl erupted between 30 to 40 students, including some outsiders, Fox6Now reported.

According to the Fox affiliate, a pregnant student being attended to was so opposed to disengaging from the melee that she kicked a pregnant paramedic.

In the Obama era, it goes without saying that no one was arrested, but police are investigating and school officials promise to “take appropriate disciplinary action against any student involved.”

Naturally, the school bearing Obama’s name turns out to be a failing school, according to Media Trackers — there were just 14 Wisconsin schools with a worse report card in 2014.

Social media users expected no less, with one aptly noting, “Can’t make this stuff up.”

Here’s a sampling of responses from Twitter:
