    MEMPHIS, Tenn. - A University of Memphis Nursing professor is coming under fire after she tweeted about Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders. 

    Judy Cole replied to a tweet with the following caption, “If she froze to death, no one would care.” 

    Sander’s father, and former Governor Mike Huckabee then jumped in to defend his daughter.



    The University of Memphis released a statement following the tweet:

    “The University of Memphis has been made aware of personal comments made on social media by a current faculty member of the Loewenberg College of Nursing. These statements do not represent the values of the University of Memphis or the values of the Loewenberg College of Nursing. This matter is being fully investigated in accordance with UofM policies.”
