From Fox News:

Campus Reform’s Cabot Phillips talked to students at New York City’s John Jay College, reading them quotes from Trump’s address. 

What the students didn’t know was that the lines were actually taken from some of former President Barack Obama’s addresses.

The students were given quotes (from Obama) about going after ISIS and countering China on trade. But most were opposed to the ideas when they thought they were coming from Trump.

“He doesn’t think before speaking,” one responded. 

“The way he approaches things is very aggressive,” another argued.

“He should mind his own business and focus on America,” a student said. 

Phillips said on Fox & Friends it appears many students are just “committed” to being against Trump no matter what. 

“They were quite shocked [when told the quotes were from Obama],” he explained, recalling one student even threatened to beat him up. 

Phillips previously discussed the State of the Union address with NYU students, who came outagainst the speech even though it hadn’t happened yet. 

He said students face consequences on liberal-leaning campuses if they support Trump, including socially, in the classroom and even through violence.

These students are not so much cursed with ‘liberal bias’: they are the useful idiots, the unpaid slaves to the ruling orthodoxy, carrying out the work of the social engineers of the left. It would be funny if it were not so serious. The threat of violence displays the deeper malaise. Ironically, these ‘liberals’ (US version) are the loudest critics of what they perceive as hate speech.

The pall of fear now spreading like an evil fog around the West is frighteningly, sickeningly reminiscent of the Stalinist regime in which I grew up. Today, you may be denounced by the nearest university student or older rabid lefty, if suspected of defying ‘the party line’.

As these college kids show, you don’t even have to think for yourself: if Obama said it, good, if Trump said it, bad. Whatever it is.
