Harvard might be on outside looking in with Trump

The Boston Globe reports:
Trump’s skepticism about climate science, his frequent disregard for facts, and his inflammatory rhetoric about women, immigrants, and minorities are also anathema to many on campus.

And the Harvard brand would not mesh easily with a president who has promised to topple the elite establishment.

“It’s absolutely going to shift,” said Andrew Hemingway, who was cochairman of Trump’s campaign in New Hampshire. “I think when you look at the vast majority of higher education institutions, particularly Ivy League, you see a very strong lean toward liberal ideology and what you just saw was an election of the American workforce saying liberal ideology isn’t working for us. I would say it’s a repudiation of that ideology.”
Imagine that.
