Leon Cooperman, during an interview on Fox News, expressed frustration with his alma mater, Columbia University, over the support shown by “pro-Palestinian” activists following the Hamas terrorist attacks in October.

Cooperman criticized the student walkout at Columbia and called the students “kids at the colleges” with “s— for brains.”

Cooperman, who has a net worth of $2.5 billion, serves as chairman and CEO of Omega Advisors, a New York-based investment advisory firm managing over $3.3 billion in assets under management.

Fox Business host Liz Claman said, “There was a student walkout at Columbia just a couple hours ago, driven by Columbia professor Joseph Massad, who called the Hamas attack ‘awesome.’ Where are we in the world when 1,300 Israeli civilians–”

Cooperman then interjected, “I think these kids at the colleges have s— for brains.”

“We only have one democracy in the Middle East. That’s Israel, okay? And we have one economy tolerant of different people — gays, lesbians, etc. — and that’s Israel. So, I have no idea what these young kids are doing,” he stated.

He emphasized the importance of Israel as America’s only true ally in the Middle East and criticized the actions of the young students.

Cooperman also mentioned his intention to stop donating to Columbia unless changes are made, including firing the professor Joseph Massad.
