Former President Obama reportedly lobbied to keep Claudine Gay as Harvard’s president following her congressional appearance on antisemitism.

Despite his efforts, Gay resigned.

Her tenure ended after struggling to address a question about condemning genocide against Jewish people and facing plagiarism allegations. (Trending: Hollywood A-Listers Revealed In Epstein Court Documents)

“This is not a decision I came to easily,” Gay wrote. “Indeed, it has been difficult beyond words because I have looked forward to working with so many of you to advance the commitment to academic excellence that has propelled this great university across centuries.”

“But, after consultation with members of the Corporation, it has become clear that it is in the best interests of Harvard for me to resign so that our community can navigate this moment of extraordinary challenge with a focus on the institution rather than any individual.”

“In a 2001 article, Gay lifts nearly half a page of material verbatim from another scholar, David Canon, a political science professor at the University of Wisconsin,” the Free Beacon noted.

“Elise Stefanik won,” GOP Rep. Jim Banks wrote. “Barack Obama lost.”

“Neither the resignation from Claudine Gay nor the statement from the Harvard Corporation included any apology for the morally bankrupt testimony,” Stefanik wrote online.

“Neither statement included any mention of their failure to protect Jewish students on campus or a pledge to combat antisemitism. As I said, this is just the beginning of a reckoning.”

The resignation sparked reactions from politicians and raised concerns about protecting Jewish students on campus.
