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.

Sarah Huckabee Sanders has to have skin tougher than a rhino’s. The unbelievable verbal bashings she took from the media, Hollywood elites, and liberal blowhards on Twitter would be more than enough to make anybody want to quit and walk away. But SHS is a different breed, apparently. She’s welcoming the haters with open arms. From Fox News: Former White House press secretary Sarah Sanders is expected to announce her candidacy for governor of Arkansas in the 2022 elections on Monday, Fox News has learned.

Washington Post Fact Checker: We Won’t Keep Track of Biden’s Lies Like We Did for Trump

The media: full of objective journalists!

Joe Biden doesn’t lie. He can’t. He’s a Democrat and Democrats do not tell lies. Of course women should be allowed to murder their children in the womb and get away with it! Of course men can claim to be women and there’s nothing wrong with their mental state! That’s how these people think, man. It’s criminally insane. From The Daily Wire: Glenn Kessler, a “fact checker” for The Washington Post, kept track of everything he and a team of deemers deemed to be a lie uttered by President Trump. His final tally of Trump’s “false and misleading statements” – 30,573. CONTINUED: But according to a new report, the Post team won’t be keeping score on President Biden, a Democrat. “Trump’s departure also equals an end to having a false claims project for the current president, as The Post said it does ‘not have plans to launch a Biden database at this time,’” The Daily Caller wrote.
