Looks like the controversial Fresno professor is taking a semester-long leave of absence after tweeting that President Donald Trump “must hang.”

A history professor at California State University Fresno who sent an inflammatory tweet about President Trump agreed with the school to take “a voluntary leave of absence” for the rest of the spring semester, effective immediately, the university announced Tuesday.

Professor Lars Maischak, 47, sent a tweet on Feb. 18 saying, “To save American democracy, Trump must hang. The sooner and the higher,  the better.” The tweet didn’t attract much attention until the far right Breitbart News site posted a story about it on April 8, sparking outrage nationwide.

It’s been a bumpy road for Maischak ever since.
