This Professor Has A Hilarious Message To Anyone Still Complaining About The Election Results

A Texas professor read an article in the Wall Street Journal about colleges across the nation coddling students like they were orphaned kindergarteners because Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton lost the election. Everything from hot cocoa to puppies had been introduced to help the students cope with the unexpected election results, with many schools even canceling exams. The Texas professor thought it was hysterical, so he posted a note of his own.

Terry McInturff, an energy commerce professor at Texas Tech, is well known around campus for his sense of humor. Just in case any of his students were traumatized by the election, he posted a notice for them.

“After reading the article and reflecting on my often-repeated statement to you that “I don’t care how you FEEL, I care what you THINK,” it occurred to me that perhaps I have been a bit too harsh," wrote McInturff. "Therefore, in the spirit of dealing with the wounds of those feeling grief and unbearable angst over the election, Kim’s tragic Paris robbery, the heart wrenching Bradgelina break-up or other similar tragedy, I would like to do my part. While I can’t offer “arts and crafts” or a “therapy dog,” the Energy Commerce Department has arranged for free hugs from our therapy boa constrictor. Please go to room 139 to schedule a session should you feel the need."

After posting the comical note online it went viral. McInturff says 'some people on the East Coast did not take it as a joke.' He got slammed with comments and calls from the media.

“Here in West Texas we are a little different,” McInturff explained. “We’re a little more thick-skinned. And hopefully a little more realistic about how the world operates.”

So far, McInturff says no one has volunteered to hug the snake.
