A professor at Emory University is catching flak after using the recent hospitalization of Rep. Steve Scalise — shot by a radical leftist during a baseball practice last month — to slam the GOP health care bill.

Carol Anderson took to Twitter saying, “Wow! It’s a good thing that he has health insurance and that there aren’t any caps.”

According to The Daily Caller:

MedStar Washington said late Thursday that Scalise, who was shot during a GOP baseball practice three weeks ago, would be readmitted to the intensive care unit “due to new concerns for infection.” His condition has been downgraded from “fair” to “serious.”

Anderson, who teaches African American Studies at Emory University, used the update as an opportunity to rail against the GOP health care bill.

Anderson doubled down on the tweet — despite being called out by others for being insensitive to Scalise’s situation:

Emory University has been embroiled in controversy lately. It’s easy to see why, with “instructors” such as these.

There’s nothing wrong with disagreeing with someone, nor expressing your thoughts on a topic like health insurance, however, there’s an appropriate — as well as clearly inappropriate — time to do so.

Someone experiencing complications due to an attempt on his life definitely falls into the latter category.

Unfortunately, politicizing tragedy and hardship has been a staple of how the left operates for some time. Any time there’s a shooting this sort of behavior ensues almost instantly.

Let’s hope this professor learns to set a better example for her students and apologizes to Scalise and his loved ones for her insensitivity.
