Two Historians Resigning from UVA Policy Center Over Hiring of Former Trump Official

“will remain as tenured faculty within the university’s history department”

Some students have been making a fuss over this as well. For the left, no one connected to this administration is acceptable.

The Hill reports:

Two University of Virginia historians leave policy center posts over former Trump aide’s hiring

Two top historians are resigning from their roles at a public policy center at the University of Virginia, citing its hiring of a former aide to President Trump for the decision.

William Hitchcock and Melvyn Leffler made the announcement on Monday in protest of the university’s decision to grant a “senior fellowship” to former Trump legislative affairs director Marc Short.

The two are leaving their posts at the Miller Center, a wing of the Charlottesville, Va.-based university that is focused on presidential history and public policy. They will remain as tenured faculty within the university’s history department, according to Politico.

“The appointment of Mr. Short runs counter to the Center’s fundamental values of non-partisanship, transparency, openness, a passion for truth and objectivity, and civility,” the two historians wrote in a resignation letter, before noting many of the issues they have with the former Trump aide.

I love how these two losers cite the policy as one that is civility and non-partisanship and openness and they display none of these features. Maybe, therefor, it is a good thing they resigned.

So they got rid of two leftists and gained one Trumpster. Looks like a win-win.

They are so “woke” and tolerant that they are unable to work with a guy they have never met.

Is this the human equivalent of getting rid of two for each new one added?

Not seeing a problem here. Since they are unable to live up to the criteria of civility and non-partisanship, they should indeed leave.

Melvin Leffler taught me 42 years ago at Vanderbilt. Was in love with Jimmy Carter. Needs to retire.

Important safety tip for Professors Hitchcock and Leffler:

Don’t let the door knob hit you in the ass on the way out.
