Gee, it sure is hard to understand why The Donald might be reluctant to invite more of them in.
You know, if this was as big of a deal to the student body as it evidently is to the student government, it wouldn’t have been necessary to suspend the campaign.
Of course, if the student government had the capacity for such abstract reasoning, the issue never would have come up in the first place.
And, boy, did they become discombobulated when they accidentally referred to him as “man” or “guy.” They probably expected PC enforcers to pop out of the bushes and grab them.
Talk about overkill! Assuming the Yale community has the same concentration of transgender individuals as the rest of the country, that’s about three bathrooms for each of them.

On the plus side, maybe this means they won’t procreate. We try to stay optimistic around here, even when students start talking about obtaining sexual consent from a tree.
Considering how popular most art museums are(n’t), this one might have slid right under the radar if “Skidmore” didn’t sound so much like “skid-mark.”
Several students refused to accept their diplomas from a man with the gall to support free speech. Too bad he didn’t have the option of reciprocating.

And why would there be? In Madison, they work harder, not smarter.
Considering the exceedingly poor quality of a letter to which she presumably devoted a fair bit of attention, her students can only benefit from her resignation.
