No honor for the lier. Oh yeah, that's punishing them. 🙄 The Democrat party & Progressives will NEVER solve poverty and Inequality because they would be putting themselves out of work . . . The work of promising these things. . . Century after century 😂 What a joke. progressives idea of voting rights is to have a free-for-all with no accountability and no identification at the polls. While they cry 'voter suppression' what they're offering is a bill to legalize cheating in elections; A, 'Voters cheating rights bill,' & Crying the opposite 😂

How will they ever contain themselves? College these days is more about indoctrination than education. Pretty sure they couldn't care less.

California Bill Would Allow Preteens To Be Vaccinated Without Parents' ConsentAlabama allows such decisions at age 14, Oregon at 15, Rhode Island and South Carolina at 16. Because too many parents are dangerous morons. W for Alabama Just cause your parent is 🥜 doesn’t mean the kids are

America's top scholars and institutions unfortunately, cannot be connected in any way to either of them, any longer. Sad fall from grace. They can seek redemption, however. Did they earn them or deserve them then? Well you people should know you can't and shouldn't go back and change history. Live life today and tomorrow and the next.

Driven by my curiosity I took the first step by trying with just $3000 and it went well I can now boast of earning even in my sleep ! I received $21,900 in just 7 days with Geoffrey100k AWESOME! This is the kind of stuff that needs to happen to all of these basturds! Revoke, provoke, demote, stop any perk or free-bee because of who they are & what they did! Bring them back to earth!

Now Not on January 7 !! Another leftist university gone to the dogs Who cares. I’m sure they don’t 😂😂😂😂

Preteens May Be Vaccinated Without Parents' Consent Under California BillCalifornia Lawmaker Wants Children 12 and Up to be Eligible for Vaccines Without Parent Consent Nope. Instead we need to focus on approving a safe, traditional(non mRNA) alternative like Covaxin. Application submitted to US_FDA 11/5 & has faced unnecessary delays. 180 million doses administered, 20 million to children this month alone, all w/no major adverse reactions

Geez, about bloody time Univ of Rhode Island is Anti-American. Just another example of Democrat hypocrisy Liberal universities are out of touch with America. Good As much as I don't like these minions ...what kind of 'satisfaction' revoking fake titles to these clowns? lifesafeast Rudy face look like the skin removed from a tummy tuck 👀

Don’t worry Trump University will restore Rudy and Flynn’s honorary degrees. A Doctorate of Imbecilic Studies will be given out. putmygamefaceon Maybe universities should be a bit more reserved in their honoring of degrees…and not give them out to the ice cream flavor of the month.

Jan. 6 Committee turns to Ivanka Trump after Rudy Giuliani, others issued subpoenasA letter was sent to former President Donald Trump's daughter and adviser requesting voluntary testimony.

If you earn a real degree it can’t be revoked. Honorary degrees are stupid and should ONLY be given when a historian/author etc clearly has done research and publishing that is degree-worthy. Such as: Tom Stoppard, Bill Gates. Not to mere famous people. I don't think they really care. Want to punish them for trying to overthrow the election results/democracy? Take their money, take their freedom

Don't worry guys. You will get new honorary degrees from Trump University. Oh, wait... That’s so woke Didn't Epstein have a honorary degree too. Who would want one,URI was known as a party school,with most students thinking Connecticut wasn't one of New England states! SethMacFarlane Gotta imagine Peter would have an entertaining take on this.

country_ca Because they have no 'honor' right? That's why they're revoking them. Ouch

Are they paying back the cost of tuition? What took the University of Rhode Island so long? 🤣🤣🤣🤣😂😂😂😂😅😅😅😅😅😅‼️‼️‼️😅😅😅😅😅😂😂😂😂🤣🤣🤣‼️‼️‼️ About time! When Trump wins the next election, would they get it back? Pulling their Honorary Degrees only proves the University's 'suck up' skills Revoked.. they waited all these years for what ? Proof of their Jan 6 insurrection partnership or.. University’s are always slow in reacting to anything..

That they gave the honorary degrees to these 2 very troubling characters in the first place, should be even more bothering than retracting them. Good.
