Students at U. Florida Demand Resignation of Student Leader for Inviting Donald Trump. Jr. to Speak

“student senator Ben Lima announced a resolution to impeach Student Body President Michael Murphy”

The speech happened weeks ago but apparently, some people aren’t over it yet.

Campus Reform reports:

Students push to impeach student body pres over Trump Jr. speech

The University of Florida Student Government chamber erupted Tuesday as some students demanded the resignation of their student body president for inviting President Donald Trump’s son, Donald Trump, Jr., to speak on campus.

Student Body President Michael Murphy’s emails revealed that he had coordinated the speaker event with a Trump 2020 campaign official. The event took place on the evening of Oct. 5 and was met with great opposition, including disruptive protests, as Campus Reform reported at the time.

The speaker was brought to campus by an arm of student government called The ACCENT Speakers Bureau. The group describes itself as “the nation’s largest student-run speakers bureau,” and boasts that it “been bringing prominent, influential, and controversial individuals to inspire, engage, and enlighten the University of Florida community for more than 50 years.”

During the Tuesday meeting, student senator Ben Lima announced a resolution to impeach Student Body President Michael Murphy. Students from all over the political spectrum then spoke in support of and against the actions of Murphy.

Campus Reform reached out to Lima but was not able to receive comment in time for publication.

Good lord, impeachment is becoming a routine word now.

Don’t like it…don’t re-elect. Inviting a speaker to campus is not an impeachable offense. Considering that Don Jr is a part of the Trump WH, it makes sense that there would be coordination with his campaign to make it happen.
