Just days after the horrific massacre in Las Vegas, and just 5 miles away from the scene, a University of Nevada-Las Vegas professor told her class that President Trump is to blame.

In a video obtained by Campus Reform, UNLV Assistant Professor Tess Winkelmann is seen addressing her History 407 class.

"Professors are in a position of trust, and they’re abusing it to promote their political ideology." Tweet This

Referring to Trump, Winkelmann noted that “when he got elected, I told my classes three semesters ago, some of us won’t be affected by this presidency, but others are going to die. Other people will die because of this.”

Given UNLV's ties to the hospitality industry, I wonder how well this rant will go over.

BTW, lest anyone think her course is even slightly related to the shooting, from https://www.unlv.edu/sites/default/files/page_files/27/History-CoursesSlideshow-Fall2017.pdf:

History 407B: United States Foreign Relations Since 1920
TR 11:30-12:45
Professor Tessa Winkelmann

The pictures associated with her course in the slide show pretty much reveal her perspective.
