Barack Obama loves to brag about his time as a professor at the University of Chicago Law School, but now some of his colleagues are speaking out to reveal that the future president wasn’t as well liked as he thought.
“Professors hated him because he was lazy, unqualified, never attended any of the faculty meetings,” said the highest tenured professor at Chicago Law.
The professor went on to say that Obama originally applied for a position as an adjunct professor, but he wasn’t even considered for the position. Weeks later, the school got a phone call from the Board of Trustees ordering them to put Obama on the payroll and give him an office as well as a class to teach.
When the staff protested, the board told them that Obama did not have to be a member of the faculty, he just needed to be given a temporary position. Obama was never a professor at the school, he wasn’t even an adjunct.
The current Chicago Law professor said that the staff never liked Obama because he was “lazy, unqualified, and never attended any of the faculty meetings.” It was also very clear that Obama was simply using the position as a political stepping tool.
The professor commented that Obama’s was the dumbest person in the office by far. He also called into question Obama’s claim that he was an editor of the Harvard Law Review. If this were true, Obama would be the only editor of an Ivy League law review to never be published. Being published is typically a requirement to become editor.
