Pro­fes­sor who dissed Trump won’t re­turn to Fresno State

The Washington Times Daily - - NATION - — Brad­ford Richard­son

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.
