  • Executive branch speakers include five Democrats and zero Republicans.
  • GOP governors outnumber Democrats 29 to 21, yet Dems have nearly doubled the number of GOP governors speaking on campus.
  • 10 of 16 members of President Obama’s cabinet are scheduled for a commencement address.
  • A study, released last week by Campus Reform, revealed liberal bias on campus as 57 Democrats are currently scheduled to deliver the commencement address compared to 26 Republicans.

    Campus Reform’s Editor-in-Chief, Caleb Bonham, sat down with Tucker Carlson to talk about why universities are lacking diversity of thought for the upcoming spring ceremonies.

    “What I found to be surprising was when you break this down by category, the proportions are completely out of whack,” Bonham told Tucker Carlson.

    “Democrats hold 21 seats as governors in America, Republicans hold 29. You would think the proportion would be fair.”
