Sean Spicer and Chelsea Manning Join Harvard as Visiting Fellows.

'Sean Spicer and Chelsea Manning are headed back to school. Sort of.

Mr. Spicer, President Trump’s former White House press secretary, and Ms. Manning, a former United States soldier who served seven years in prison for leaking classified information, were named visiting fellows at the Institute of Politics at Harvard Kennedy School on Wednesday.

Needless to say, their politics differ considerably.

Mr. Spicer, a former spokesman for the Republican National Committee, objected when President Obama commuted Ms. Manning’s 35-year prison sentence in January. He called it “disappointing” and said "it sends a very troubling message when it comes to the handling of classified information.”

Ms. Manning does not appear to be too fond of Mr. Spicer, either. Her appointment drew criticism on Wednesday, and when Bill Kristol, the Weekly Standard editor, said, “I think I’ll forego I.O.P. events this fall,” Ms. Manning replied: “Awesome! Can you ask Sean Spicer to do the same?”'>>>

3. The Institute of Politics while located at Harvard, is a separate organization set up by

the Kenney's.

Yes, they have sometimes brought in controversial figures in the past -as "visiting professor" even if only for a day- but thes recent choices have really turned a few heads, and caused several others to resign.

5. Hopefully, Spicer is next. The question is who or what group decided that Manning & Spicer . . .

should be visiting fellows.
