Professor under fire after making death-related comments about President Donald Trump

This Northeastern professor has been living in his academic bubble for so long that he really believes that the world revolves around his teachings. When you go on record as saying that the President’s death would be ok with you, be ready for the consequences. Barry Bluestone is a professor of economics. He teaches at Northeastern University in Boston, Can what he said be construed as a threat against the President? Maybe not, but he should be interviewed by the FBI just to make sure.

As Written and Reported By Sarah Taylor for The Blaze:

Barry Bluestone, a professor of economics at Northeastern University in Boston, is under fire after making death-related comments about President Donald Trump.

Bluestone received his Ph.D. in Economics from the University of Michigan in 1974 and has been affiliated with Northeastern since at least 1999.

What were his remarks?

Bluestone told those gathered for a January lecture on law and inequality in the U.S. that he would be all right with Trump being ousted from the White House — even by death.

“Sometimes I want to just see him impeached. Other times, quite honestly — I hope there are no FBI agents here — I wouldn’t mind seeing him dead,” he said during the lecture that was open to the public, the Boston Globe reported.

Bluestone, also a founding director of the Dukakis Center for Urban and Regional Policy at the university, made the comments while responding to a question about possible paths “forward” for the U.S.

Bluestone’s comments were featured in a YouTube video that caught the attention of many. The video has since been deleted, according to WFXT-TV.

Was there more?

The Globe contacted Bluestone for comment, and the professor quickly backpedaled on …..
