Liberal professor’s remark about President Trump has been deleted — but it’s too late.
A professor at Boston’s Northeastern University was being recorded during a public lecture when he said he wouldn’t mind seeing President Trump dead.
“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,” Barry Bluestone, a professor of political economy, said during a public event labelled ‘The Rule of Law in a Time of Polarization.’
The university is trying to distance itself from what he said. That’s not enough. He should be fired.
Bluestone’s remarks were recorded in a YouTube video uploaded by the school on Monday, but it has since been deleted, according to several news sources.

But what he said cannot be unsaid.
