Why is Peter Navarro still a professor at UC-Irvine?

Only eight days after a deadly terrorist attack on the US Capitol building by Trump supporters incited by the “election fraud” lies and angry rhetoric of Donald Trump, his top advisers, and Republicans in Congress, Trump trade adviser Peter Navarro went on Fox News and repeated the same lies and angry rhetoric that helped lead to violence in the first place. (Full transcript below.)

Navarro, who also serves as Professor Emeritus of Economics and Public Policy at the University of California – Irvine’s Paul Merage School of Business (he was a professor there before joining Trump’s White House), accused Democrats today of committing “violence” by impeaching Donald Trump, repeated the lie that Democrats had stolen the election from Trump, and then added: “I’ve never been more pissed off in my life at this place, and I think there are 74 million Americans out there who voted for President Trump who feel exactly the same way.”

Later, Navarro ominously warned that “the people of this country, the Trump people, are not gonna stand for this.”

Navarro went on to suggest that Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg hired “Chinese nationals, members of the Chinese Communist Party,” and “put ‘em to work learning how to censor the President.” There are 3,000 or so Chinese students at the University of California – Irvine who might wonder why their professor believes that Chinese tech specialists are per se experts on censorship.

Navarro then went on an even weirder tangent, claiming that Congressman Eric Swalwell (D-CA) “slept his way up the coast of California.’ Navarro concluded by offering his opinion of Democrats on Capitol Hill: “I mean, these people disgust me. Disgust me.”
