Georgetown Silent About Students Who Harassed Elaine Chao and Mitch McConnell

“school refusing to return numerous queries from The College Fix”

Do you think things would be different if this happened to Democrats during the Obama years?

The College Fix reports:

Georgetown University silent after its students harass Elaine Chao, Mitch McConnell

Georgetown University is refusing to comment on the conduct of several of its students who accosted a sitting senator and the senator’s wife, with the school refusing to return numerous queries from The College Fix regarding the controversial incident on the university campus.

Several days after Democratic Representative Maxine Waters called on supporters to harass “anybody from [Trump’s] cabinet” whether they be “in a restaurant, in a department store, at a gasoline station,” a group of Georgetown students confronted Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and his wife, Secretary of Transportation Elaine Chao, as they were leaving a recent event on Georgetown’s campus.

Video of the event, posted on Twitter, shows a group of 5-6 students descending on McConnell and Chao as the two enter a vehicle. The group of students shout at the couple “Why are you separating families?” and “How can you sleep at night?” while blasting audio of illegal immigrant children who were separated from their families by the federal government.

In the video, Secretary Chao confronts the protesters, asking them: “Why won’t you leave my husband alone?” A shouting match ensues between Chao and the protesters. At one point a woman, possibly a Secret Service agent, begins ordering the students to “back up.” Chao eventually gets into the waiting vehicle, which then drives away.

In spite of the conduct of its students, Georgetown University remains utterly silent regarding the altercation.

Surely nobody is surprised by the lack of comment from the formerly Catholic university, or most any other college or university in the US. I’m somewhat surprised the Georgetown administration had the common sense to avoid praising the student’s actions.
