Professor who called Trump's election 'terrorism' awarded 'Faculty Member of the Year'

Student speaks out on 'The First 100 Days'

 

Orange Coast College honored a professor with its top reward, even though a secret video recording reportedly showed her calling President Donald Trump a "white supremacist" and his election in 2016 "an act of terrorism."

Professor Olga Perez Stable Cox called Vice President Mike Pence "one of the most anti-gay humans" in America, said it was "scary" living around "hateful" Republicans in Orange County, California, and seemed to suggest America was "assaulted" after the 2016 election.

Cox refused to apologize but received OCC's  "Faculty Member of the Year" award just a few months after her comments, The Washington Post reported on Wednesday.

Cox's student, 19 year-old Caleb O'Neil, secretly recorded her comments and the footage went viral in December of 2016.

O'Neil violated a Coast Community College District policy that barred anyone on district property from recording someone without their consent. OCC suspended him, according to Washington Free Beacon.
