University of Virginia Hires Former Trump Official, Here’s How Professors Responded

Published

on

The University of Virginia hired a former legislative affairs director Marc Short and immediately received an astounding amount of unsurprising pushback from folks, particularly professors, many of which have decided to turn in their resignation following the administrative decision.

These folks hate Trump so much they’d rather not have an income than as to put up with someone who doesn’t believe all the same things they do. Is that not completely insane? This is the world we all live in now, and it’s getting sadder by the minute.

“The appointment of Mr. Short [as a paid senior fellow] runs counter to the [Miller] Center’s fundamental values of nonpartisanship, transparency, openness, a passion for truth and objectivity, and civility,” professors Melvyn Leffler and William Hitchcock wrote in a July 30 letter to William Antholis, the UVA-affiliated center’s director.

Their resignations come amid calls from several progressives to confront Trump officials, including from Rep. Maxine Waters, D-Calif., who called on supporters last month to tell Trump Cabinet members “they’re not welcome anymore, anywhere.”

Leffler and Hitchcock cited Short’s “ongoing attacks on a free media” and association with “rhetoric and policies that have empowered and emboldened white supremacists” as reasons for their resignation.

Antholis defended Short’s appointment in a statement, noting he “brings a missing critical voice—one that represents members of Congress and the Republican Party who continue to support the president in large numbers” and furthers the Miller Center’s mission to study the American presidency.

Short has not immediately responded to an ABC News request for comment but earlier expressed disappointment at faculty members’ opposition to his hiring.

You’d think that if liberals were serious about wanting to convince folks of their position they’d want to stick around where Trump supporters work in order to help expose them to their worldview, in hopes of convincing them theirs is right. But they’d rather form their own safe little bubble, a political cocoon so to speak, where they won’t be forced to mix it up with the riff raff of society.

Typical.

It doesn’t matter what Joe Biden or anybody connected to him has done. What matters is that President Trump loses his bid for re-election in November. Nothing else. That’s how the media – and Democrats – think. Democracy be damned. From Fox News: The FBI’s subpoena of a laptop and hard drive purportedly belonging to Hunter Biden came in connection with a money laundering investigation in late 2019, according to documents obtained by Fox News and verified by multiple federal law enforcement officials who reviewed them. It is unclear, at this point, whether the investigation is ongoing or if it was directly related to Hunter Biden. CONTINUED: Multiple federal law enforcement officials, as well as two separate government officials, confirmed the authenticity of these documents, which were signed by FBI Special Agent Joshua Wilson. Wilson did not immediately respond to Fox News’ request for comment. One of the documents, obtained by Fox News, was designated as an FBI “Receipt for Property” form, which details the bureau’s interactions with John Paul Mac Isaac, the owner of “The Mac Shop” who reported the laptop’s contents to authorities.
