An associate professor of political science at Gettysburg College has written a scathing opinion piece in which she calls the idea of Donald Trump in the White House "truly unthinkable as well as unteachable."

"My approach for the fall semester will be boldly honest: It is a disservice to students to attempt to provide balance when I know that balance is an offense to the truth," Kathleen Iannello, a self-confessed liberal, writes at Philly.com.

"As a liberal, I have no problem extolling the virtues of Democrats. And because of that, every year I go out of my way to create some semblance of balance.... But this time there is a potentially long national nightmare just beginning.

"A Donald Trump presidency, in my view, is truly unthinkable as well as unteachable. My comment is neither partisan nor ideological. Despite his attempts at the recent GOP convention, Trump stands for no party and represents no ideology."

She says Trump's "harsh and distasteful commentary regarding religious and ethnic groups, as well as women, only serves as a lightning rod for promoting further hate."

Alissa López, a Gettysburg sophomore who co-founded the conservative Young Americans for Freedom, writes in The College Fix that she took a class taught by Iannello and believes she teaches with a bias.

"I often questioned and spoke against various statements Iannello made, as she loved to praise Hillary Clinton and scrutinize and denounce many Republican candidates," López said.

"So when Professor Iannello openly declares … that 'I have never before been faced with the prospect of attempting to stay "balanced" with a presidential candidate who I think is unqualified for the job by every conceivable measure' – I can't help but think: Really, only Trump?"
