Prof Wishes Cold Death on Press Sec Sanders: ‘She Wouldn’t Be Missed’

More tolerance from the Left.

A University of Memphis nursing assistant professor didn’t think White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders deserved to be given an Army pilot’s jacket to stay warm during a chili visit to South Korea with the president last week. She’d have rather her frozen to death.

In a now-deleted tweet, Professor Judy Cole wrote:

“If she froze to death, she wouldn’t be missed.”

This was in response to Sanders’ father, former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, who sent a tweet of thanks to the pilot who offered up the jacket to his daughter. After hearing the professor’s wishes, Huckabee responded on Twitter:

 

The university will start an investigation after the backlash and the various calls for the professor to be fired. Cole said she has already talked to her attorney and added, “I really don’t want to talk about this” when confronted by local news. “This has gotten blown out of proportion.”

Cole’s employer released a statement:

“The University of Memphis has been made aware of personal comments made on social media by a current faculty member of the Loewenberg College of Nursing. These statements do not represent the values of the University of Memphis or the values of the Loewenberg College of Nursing. This matter is being fully investigated in accordance with UofM policies.”

Huckabee took the callous statement to heart and told the local news station that he “was stunned that a University nursing professor would wish a young mother of 3 to die.”

“I know people have strong political views, but that level of hate and vile is shocking, but especially from someone who is educated and supposed to teach healing,” Huckabee said. “I didn’t shame anyone — the person sending the tweet shamed herself, her profession, and her employer with such a vicious and bitter comment.”
