Some liberal students at an Ivy League school can’t accept the fact that Donald Trump won, which led to an economics professor making his exam optional, says Fox News.
These students just couldn’t handle the fact that there are people who disagree with their views and their economic professor decided that instead of teaching them that life goes on, he indulged their childishness.

The professor reportedly told the students: “I am getting many heartfelt notes from students who are in shock over the election returns” and who “fear, rightly or wrongly for their families.” He added that they are “requesting that the exam be postponed.”
Jon Victor, Editor of the Yale News, tweeted the professor’s message and noted that there were many other students who asked for similar accommodations.
There are probably many people who are legitimately upset because they don’t understand or don’t agree with Trump’s policies. That is fine. Many people felt that way when Barack Obama was elected the first and second time.
But still life goes on, especially for those capable of attending such a prominent university.
Most of these people were probably just trying to get out of taking an exam. Like many students before them and it seems they got away with it.
