The Left on college campuses appear to suffer from Trump Derangement Syndrome after the election of Donald Trump as the next president of the United States. Ranging from hate crimes and race hoaxes to not inviting Donald Trump to speak at Notre Dame (which bucks a university tradition since Dwight D. Eisenhower), the Left cannot handle a Trump presidency before it starts:
- Notre Dame. Notre Dame’s president, John Jenkins, is weighing whether to invite the president-Elect Donald Trump to speak at the university, which has been an ongoing tradition for more than half a century.
- American University (AU). Some students at the D.C.-based university called for the firing of a university trustee, not due to an act or statement, but due to his meeting with Donald Trump to discuss a possible administrative position under Trump.
- Mary’s College. A poster circulated at the college claimed that Trump supporters “may post a serious risk” for the LGBT community and people of color.
- Boston College (BC). Forty-seven faculty members wrote a letter that blasted Donald Trump for not condemning hate crimes nor hate speech directed toward the Muslim and LGBT community, without giving specific examples of hate speech.
- University of Michigan. School president Mark Schlissel said that Trump supporters accepted hate and “some idealized version of a non-existent yesterday” and praised anti-Trump supporters for being the “90 percent of you [who] rejected the kind of hate…expressed during the campaign.”
