The best and brightest minds at one of the finest learning institutions in the country have come up with a new claim that’s sending shock waves across the nation — all while proving the level of insanity infecting our higher education system is hitting astounding new heights.
According to the geniuses at Harvard, the election of President Trump increases the risk of disease.
You can’t make this stuff up.
The Daily Caller reports:
Researchers at Harvard’s T.H. Chan School of Public Health claim in a new article that the 2016 election of Donald Trump could cause an increased risk of disease, premature childbirth and premature death, particularly among “marginalized groups” like Muslims, immigrants and racial minorities.
The article, by Harvard professor David R. Williams and Massachusetts General Hospital/McLean Hospital psychiatrist Morgan Medlock, is being published in the June 8 issue of New England Journal of Medicine.
“Elections can matter for the health of children and adults in profound ways that are often unrecognized and unaddressed,” Williams said in a statement.
The pair didn’t conduct any new research but studied previously released studies.
Following the election of Donald Trump, health professionals said that some individuals who opposed Trump experienced “Post Election Stress Disorder.”
“It’s been crippling,” Clinton voter Wally Pfingsten told CNN. “I feel angry, really, really angry, far more angry than I expected to be.”
An online therapist location service in New York City reported a spike in web traffic in the days immediately following the election caused mainly by gay, lesbian and minority clients.
The Harvard authors also cite a February 2006 University of Chicago study claiming that Arab women gave birth to more low-birthweight babies or preterm births after the 9/11 attacks “when hostility against Arab Americans was intense.”
The article argues that cuts to health and social service programs, like the repeal of the Affordable Care Act, will make the health circumstances of the poor and marginalized demographics worse.
The question that must be addressed at this point is whether or not there’s anything for which liberals won’t find a way to blame Trump?
For the left, anything beats accepting the hard truth: liberal policies have failed America time and again over the last eight years and it’s time to go a different direction.
The left seems incapable of accepting this, despite the fact it’s absolutely true. Sad, isn’t it?
