Academics Call For Trump To ‘Die A Long, Lingering, Painful Death Alone’

Start

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.”

Rothkopf’s tweet appears to be an allegory attacking President Trump’s coronavirus response, insisting “don’t lament the fate of the arsonist who is singed while burning down your home”:

Mark Sarvas, an instructor of Novel Writing at the University of California Los Angeles (UCLA) Extension Writers Program, tweeted he “hopes” President Trump “dies alone.”

In the same tweet, he questioned if MSNBC host Rachel Maddow wishing the Trump family a speedy recovery was “performance art”:

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.
