Failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton is set to become a professor at New York’s Columbia University. College students can now spend close to $100,000 per year to hear her deny the 2016 election.
As the New York Post writes, Clinton joins the staff as a professor of global affairs.
The former secretary of state and presidential candidate will join Manhattan’s Columbia University as a professor focusing on global affairs, the school announced Thursday.
She will serve both as a professor of practice at the School of International and Public Affairs and as a presidential fellow at Columbia World Projects, university president Lee Bollinger said in a message to the school community.
University president Lee Bollinger shared a message with the entire Columbia community that Clinton offers “extraordinary talents” and is “exceptional” in what she will bring to the Manhattan campus.
“Given her extraordinary talents and capacities together with her singular life experiences, Hillary Clinton is unique, and, most importantly, exceptional in what she can bring to the University’s missions of research and teaching, along with public service and engagement for the public good,” Bollinger stated.
The New York Post added that much of Clinton’s role as a presidential fellow will include helping to “engage young people and women.”
In response, the director of the Columbia World Project released their own statement, saying, “We look forward to welcoming this extraordinarily accomplished global leader and passionate advocate for women, children, and social justice.”
Twitter absolutely erupted at the thought of Clinton taking on this new position, set to begin for 2023-24 academic year.
One user wrote that what she’s teaching will be “a 13-hour class” in direct reference to her botched handling of the Benghazi scandal.
Another hilariously connected her title as professor of global affairs, saying: “If there’s anybody who knows about affairs…”
Still others chimed in on the allegations that the Clinton family has long been involved in nefarious crimes and deeds.
The classes she will instruct in will be titled “Plausible Deniability” and “The Art of Lying (how to pass a lie detector every time)”.
“In other news, Columbia University is bracing for a steep rise in suicides by multiple shots to the back of the head”
I thought she was going to teach a course entitled Navigating Legal and Ethical Issues in the New “Assisted Suicide” Paradigm.
Clinton released her own statement following the public announcement.
“I am honored to join Columbia University, and the School of International and Public Affairs and Columbia World Projects,” she said.
“Columbia’s commitment to educating the next generation of U.S. and global policy leaders, translating insights into impact, and helping to address some of the world’s most pressing challenges resonates personally with me. I look forward to contributing to these efforts.”
