5 Reasons Why Trump at UIC is Super Ironic

5 Reasons Why Trump at UIC is Super Ironic

The Donald is coming, The Donald is coming! Not surprisingly, Donald Drumpf is holding a rally in Chicago ahead of the Illinois primary on Tuesday, March 15th. What is surprising to me is where he chose to hold it. It’s not at his namesake Tower, on of the high-profile centers for higher education in the city, or on the ferris wheel at Navy Pier. It’s at the University of Illinois at Chicago, where I’ve been a graduate student for 2 years. Home of the Flames and a Wendy’s in the student center. But beyond that, this meeting of Drumpf and UIC is so ironic so many reasons. Here are 5:

1. UIC has a lot of “young and beautiful piece[s] of ass” (or unattractive slobs, depending on our opinions) with a majority female campus. What!?! Women getting an education instead of just being arm candy or property?! Or maybe he’s hoping that the quote about himself (love the 3rd person speak!) holds true: “Women find his power almost as much of a turn-on as his money.”

2. UIC educates a large percentage of “killers, criminals, and rapists” or at least their children and grandchildren. Almost 20% of UIC students identify as Hispanic or Latino, so at some point they or their family crossed that border that may soon have a huge wall. Guess they’ll have to go back to Univision.

3. UIC hates America. I couldn’t find exact statistics, but my experience has been that UIC has a very strong Muslim presence, with active student associations and events. Again, Drumpf recognizes there may some good Muslims out there, but “It’s very hard to define…very hard to separate, because you don’t know who’s who.”

4. UIC has a lot of “morons.” 8,000 UIC students rely on Monetary Award Program (MAP) grants to attend college and many more qualify for need-based financial aid. There is a food pantry on campus because of rising food insecurity for its students. How could Drumpf stand to be around all these stupid poor people?

5. UIC is “stupid and insecure” (an Ivy League grad at a public research university- the horror!), but then again we all are, compared to Drumpf.

And like that black fly in your chardonnay, The Donald will be on Roosevelt Road today. A little too ironic…I really do think.
