Yes, because a safe space at an art school in the liberal city of Washington, D.C. will do people good *sarcasm*

The director of The George Washington University’s Corcoran School of Art and Design has no love lost for Donald Trump, as he made clear recently to students and faculty members.

“A week ago many of us were shocked by the outcome of the presidential election,” Sanjit Sethi states in a November 16 email to the Corcoran community, clarifying the he is referring to “the election of an individual who is seen by many to be a misogynist, a racist, a homophobe, and a xenophobe.”

He then goes on to claim that “we have already witnessed an uptick in hateful speech” since Trump’s election, and ponders what Corcoran can and should do to uphold its “responsibility to create a safe space for our students, faculty, and staff.”
