The University of Michigan Law School has canceled its Play-Dough event originally designed to help students cope with the trauma of the election result.

The Daily Caller speculates that UMich Law was apparently so embarrassed by the ridicule the planned event drew that they scrubbed any mention of it from their website.

Here’s a screenshot from Google’s cache of the UMich Law events page as it appeared on November 10th.

Here’s the same page as it appears on Saturday.

Prior to the event’s pulling, Total Frat Move’s Dillon Cheverere blasted the event, writing, “I want it to be a joke so badly, but it’s not a joke. It’s real. Students have the chance to ‘post-election self care’ by decompressing and enjoying snacks and playing with toys designed for toddlers.”

Several others took to the internet to ridicule UMich Law School for planning such an infantile event for its future legal professionals.

Brandon Wenerd, writing for Bro Bible, said that although he’s no Donald Trump supporter, “soft, cry-baby stuff” like UMich Law School’s event “is why Trump was put in office.”

The Play-Doh event was to be conducted by UMich Law School’s embedded psychologist Reena Sheth.

On her UMich Law School page, Dr. Sheth describes her approach to psychology as “integrative” and drawing upon “relational-psychodynamic, existential-phenomenological, and indigenous mental health traditions.”

It’s unclear where Play-Doh fits into that.

So far, UMich Law School has not offered any official explanation as to why it canceled the event.

Just days ago, UMich Law School was home to anti-Trump protests.

In a speech, the school’s president Mark Schlissel praised the protests and noted – to loud applause – that 90% of students had voted “in favor of a candidate other than Trump.”

Schlissel went on to say that those who did vote for Trump voted in support of “hate” and “fractiousness.”

    Bunch of sissies ! All butthurt because Trump won… suck it up buttercups! There’s a new Sheriff in town !

  • Lord_of_Lotion

    That’s a shame. Think of all the play doh gun sculptures that could have been made.

  • Scott Graves

    I have to wonder if the old people I’ve dealt with were right about the younger generations. I always wrote it off to the normal misunderstandings between the generations but looking at this garbage makes me think they were onto something. We need to take back the schools and colleges from these lunatic children because I have to say I don’t want to work with any of these people. At a workplace you need people who are going to shut up and get to work. These losers won’t have your back when things get hard. These losers won’t knuckle down and get it done when it’s crunch time. They will crawl off to their safe space and play with their toys while the grownups need to work twice as hard to get the shit done.

    Job applications need to have the following question, “On November 9th 2016 did you go to school or work as normal or did you need to take time to recover from the election? Yes/No.” The beauty of this is if they tell the truth, don’t hire them. If they lie, a simple Facebook search will verify they lied and they can be fired for lying on a job application. These losers need to find out what working at McDonnalds with huge student loan debt is like. Consequences to their actions.

    • Hyperia83

      But a yes/no answer on a this or that-question doesn’t work 😉

  • I Troll Libtards

    Fucking pussies

  • Hyperia83

    I don’t want any of these people who go to law school and need shit like this to have any job in the law field.

  • Svanen

    Treat them like children and that’s exactly how they will act

  • Arthro

    I guess a law degree from UMICH probably isn’t worth much. I wonder if they actually teach anything about the constitution.

    • Daisy

      They lowered the requirements for minorities back in the 1980’s, which excluded a lot of qualified students – at the undergrad level, administrators actively discouraged white students from applying. One woman took offense at this and sued all the way up to the SCOTUS, who said that, yes, UM CAN have lower expectations for minorities.

      A few years ago, the voters of Michigan voted that race CANNOT be a factor in college admissions. The snowflakes sued, again to the SCOTUS, who ruled that yes, the voters CAN declare race to be a non-issue in college admissions.

  • lol, my 5 year old asked if she can have the play doh since the event was cancelled

    • Hans Brost

      Smart Kid…….lol

  • Nicolas Fabbroni Leroy

    Dang… I didn’t know about the Legos… I’m a bit on the fence now……

    Give them the Legos back, they may at least learn so very basic mechanic skills in the process…. and IT’S LEGOS ffs.

    Other than that, yeah fuck ’em.

  • Jason Hunt

    That’s the future of America right there, folks.

  • “Your Honour, the defence requests a play-doh break.”

  • PolishSoldier

    Future attorneys need play-doh & coloring books to cope with stress because Trump was elected (LOL)

    Wonder what you do if you encounter a felon in your professional life?

    • walter williams

      Come on…it WAS a joke, meant to.poke fun at the immature attitudes of these Trump protesters.

  • Lori Mills

    States should do what Oklahoma has done. Audit what money has been waisted on the cry babies at penalize the non-private universities with taking three times the amount of waste on these crybabies from their school budget in 2017.

    • Monika Solomon

      Iowa did it too! Who says ‘flyover states’ have zero common sense?

  • Polaris

    Who would hire a lawyer that has to wallow in play-dough the minute things get difficult?

    • Balandrus

      Other libtards.

  • Janik Litalien

    I mean…this is a joke right?
    Reality has actually surpassed the onion…

  • jack lehr

    Hahahahaha!

  • walter williams

    Good grief…I can’t help but think the whole thing was a joke; a jab at the immature mentality behind the entire Trump protest thing.
    I thought it was brilliant to offer toddler and grade school activities to help the toddler and grade school mentality of these protesters.

  • mindy1

    Wahhhhhhh the election was mean?

  • Hay NonnyMoose

    On the bright side, it makes it easier to filter the job applicants’ resumes. “UMich? Yeah, that one goes in the square floor file.”

  • Rich Bawol

    What are we dealing with here, a bunch of babies. Get over it and put your big girl panties on. My God, when I was probably younger then most of them, I was in the Marines and sent to Vietnam and you have my word, we weren’t offered coloring books or Plat Doh to help us if we were stressed. I can’t recall ever being in a battle and when it was over our Commander gave us coloring books to ease our stress. We cleaned our weapons and got ready to use them again. STUPID as my Wife just said!

    • Monika Solomon

      There’s an Internet joke going around about the only ones being tougher than the Marines are farmers’ kids from having to do all that hard work! I have a few friends who were raised on small farms and then joined the military. They said basic was a cakewalk compared to all the work they had to do to keep the farm running!

      • Rich Bawol

        Bullshit! Did this person also have to fight in Vietnam?

        • Monika Solomon

          Did you fail to read the word JOKE? Most jugheads I know have a hell of a sense of humor and fought in the Gulf War. The first one.

        • Monika Solomon

          And another thing. Get over yourself. You ‘nam vets act like you’re better than every other vet out there. Have you taken time to talk to these kids who are coming back from OIF/OEF ? Maybe take the time and you can stop with the self pity!!!!

  • Mar

    Sigh… I guess Play-Doh is better than rioting, but God help us.. if this is the future of America, we are royally screwed.

  • CB Snow

    You gotta be kidding me. I LOVE play-doh! I sit with my grandson, mush the stuff around and we have a great time. He likes it when I make robots and faces. Of course he’s 5 – when he’s 15 we may have to find another way to bond. You nattering nabobs of negativism don’t know what you’re missing.

    • Patricia Morin Smith

      Did your Grandson miss school to play with play-doh?

  • Carrie Taylor

    The fuck is “self-care”?! The mental health profession has now become a fucking joke. Next time I need a lawyer, I’m going to ask if her prefers coloring books or play-doh. Makes me want to torch shit.

  • Nanaspj

    That time all the liberals and the media made fun of President Trump for bringing toys, specifically play-doh to the children during the Louisiana flood crisis

  • Patricia Morin Smith

    What will they do when they lose a case in court??

  • Godfrey Zohn

    So many swamps needing draining…

  • Jeffreysenk

    Glad they got beat this weekend by Iowa
    Whole university is run by complete morons

  • Jim Madison

    Wow. You guys realize that it’s quite profound that they took this down. They were shamed into it. They were perfectly comfortable continuing their post-kindergarten training regimen that aimed to preserve the infantile impulses of otherwise grown people. But then their entire platform was cast into the light and exposed for what it was; kindergarten playtime for adults. It was re-branded by people outside their cult and that branding overtook their own marketing of it.
    It may be a university but it’s still, like any human institution, subject to social pressure. This pressure came from the right as much as anyone and it changed their behavior.
    We need a lot more stuff like this.

  • Klea Rusnim

    This is why counyless people are saying that the school systems including college have all gone to COMPLETE UTTER SHIT!!! BLATANT NEO SOCIAL MARXIST COMMUNIST INDOCTINATION AND BRAINWASHING TO THE Nth FUCKING DEGREE!!!! If the US wants to reverse this bullshit and wuick we need to either force these extremeist lefties to fucki g resign, or there needs to be schools or programs to educate our youth as a viable alternative to the garbage that is being pushed by these too far gone and corrupted people!!!!

  • Gary

    Bubbles… Are you fuc_ing kidding me?

  • Loribeth12464

    The only good thing about these marshmallows is that kids like my son, who joined the army reserve to help pay for college, will rise to the top.

  • Hans Brost

    Un Fuck Ing Believable……lol

  • dennis williams

    How long will not pandering to you and not agreeing with you equal HATING you? Ar you really so fragile and insecure that an opposing viewpoint threatens your very existence ? Pathetic. Funny. And a bit sad.

  • Justcuz

    This had to have been posted on the UMich law school site as a prank. I would have believed the Play-Doh, but legos, coloring books and bubbles? LMAO!

    • whimsy13

      It was not a prank. I’m ashamed to say I live in Michigan. 🙁
      I am proud to say though, that my children would never consider coloring or destressing with play-doh instead of attending class!

  • Sam Champlin

    We are raising failures. We get so upset at these kids when we see this but in all honestly it is not completely their fault. Here is my take on this. The other side wants bigger government right. When you raise a person without teaching them about the real world and tell them they are special and they deserve everything they are set up to fail when the real world hits them in the face. They fail and have no clue what to do other than react with pure unchecked emotion. Now imagine if you did not have the coping mechanisms that you have now. Imagine how you would feel. The first thing that pops into my head is anger and fear. FEAR is the greatest way to control a group. Scare them all and swoop in as the knight in shining armor with promises of safety and a better life and they will follow every commandment you lay down in front of them.The reason why the government has not grown out of control is because the government still feared the peoples reaction. The people were more educated, taught to think objectively, and that they were being taught to how to “become” special and it was up to them to see it through. They were not as easily startled and fall into fear mode as our little slow flakes are today.. Not so much the case now. Attack education and create spineless children and you will have an army of weak lemmings that will believe that you know what is best for them. Take away their rights little by little explaining to them that it is for their safety while patting them on the head and offering up play-dough parties. They will hand them over with a smile. This was not something that just sprung up out of nowhere, it was planned and intentional. Is it simple coincidence that a large majority of educators are libearal?

  • NASCARDaddy

    I want this to be a joke so bad but as a former student at one of the more conservative law schools in the country I figure it’s probably not.
