Professor who dissed Trump won’t return to Fresno State
The professor who said President Trump “must hang” to “save American democracy” will not be returning to Fresno State University to teach in the fall, the school announced on Friday.
Lars Maischak has been a history lecturer at the public university since 2006, but is just the latest professor to be disciplined for threatening the president’s life on social media.
“To save American democracy, Trump must hang,” Mr. Maischak tweeted in April. “The sooner and the higher, the better. #TheResistance #DeathToFascism.”
After the tweet garnered public scrutiny, Mr. Maischak deleted his Twitter account and issued an apology.
In a statement on Friday, Fresno State President Joseph Castro said Mr. Maischak will fulfill the remainder of his contract, which expires in December, by designing online courses.
