CNN is being a bit of a tease with its two tweets Monday promoting Harvard’s free, four-week “Resistance School” — the tweets link to a story published last week, so we’ve all already missed 25 percent of our training in resisting President Trump’s agenda.
The materials are still online, though, so it’s not too late to download the homework sheets and brainstorm a team name, like the “Fired-Up Milwaukee Grannies for Environmental Justice.”

There are still three sessions available, including this week’s featuring Sara El-Amine, former executive director of OFA. So even if Barack Obama won’t be stopping by in person, the woman behind @barackobama will be there.
Harvard would like everyone to know that this is a student project, although the students don’t seem to be hurting for support: “Resistance School is an independently organized project developed by students at Harvard University. It is not an official course or offering of Harvard University or any of its schools.”
One of Resistance School’s founders says the project began as a handful of students and professors chatted about their shared “sense of outrage and despair and beginning to feel overwhelmed and exhausted with the question of ‘What are we going to do after the election?'” Seeing as the project grew out of despair and exhaustion, maybe the better question was what to do before the election.

Harvard is a losing deal even w/scholarship.
Lose a fortune, get a snowflake "social justice warrior" who's too "smart" for an ordinary job

Just think, a lot of their alumni run our government today and you see the negative impact. Overrated

They should work on getting that education so they don't have to rely on the Federal government instead of being obstructionists

Doesn't seem very American to me. Weather you are on the same side as the President or not, you do NOT do something like this! Shame!!!
