In addition to former Hillary Clinton staffers and mainstream journalists expressing “hope” for President Trump to die from COVID-19, university professors have also revealed their desires for him to “die a long, lingering, painful death.”
Sarah Churchwell, who serves as a Professor of American Literature and Public Understanding of the Humanities at the University of London, shared to her over 33,000 Twitter followers that she wants President Trump to “die a long, lingering, painful death while we prosecute his children, his vicious wife, and his entire fucking administration”:
The Chair for the Public Understanding of the Humanities Department continued her public wishes for President Trump’s death, labeling a tweet from David Rothkopf, a Professor at institutions such as Georgetown and Columbia, “correct.”

Sarvas added two tweets to his original death wish for President Trump: a long string of “ha’s” and “Thoughts and prayers. muther f*cker.”
These tweets come shortly after a Professor of Biology at Marshall University expressed hope that supporters of President Trump would contract the coronavirus and die ahead of the upcoming election, ensuring a victory for Democratic Presidential candidate Joe Biden.
The aforementioned professors’ comments also are part of a broader movement of anti-Trump Twitter users, including a former editor for George Soros-funded media outlet openDemocracy, wishing death upon the President.
