Suffering from Trump Derangement Syndrome, college professors, faculty, administrators and students appear to be unable to cope with an impending Donald Trump presidency. Examples of Trump Derangement Syndrome and anti-Trump rhetoric range from extra credit for an anti-Trump rally, feminist coloring books and creating a ‘sanctuary campus’ for illegal immigrant students:
- The social work department at Pitt encouraged its department professors to give students extra credit for participating in an anti-Trump rally, which calls to question why state taxpayer dollars are funding partisan political activism.
- Barnard College. The all-women college at Columbia University gave out feminist coloring books to their students who were grieving the election of Donald Trump.
- The University of Texas at Austin. The student government created a “therapy wall” to help students cope with the election of Donald Trump.
- Over 450 faculty members at Penn demanded that Donald Trump issue a statement on an on-campus incident, where a group chat message went viral and caused controversy. Trump is an alum of the university’s Wharton business school.
- Columbia University college administrators agreed to student demands to make the private university a “sanctuary campus” for illegal immigrant students, when illegal immigrant students began to worry if they would be deported after Trump’s election.
