2 Mass. college students exonerated after Trump taunts at Clinton alma mater

BOSTON -- Two college students who waved a Donald Trump flag while taking a post-election victory drive through Hillary Clinton’s alma mater in Massachusetts won’t be punished by their school.

Lawyers for Babson College students Parker Rand-Ricciardi and Edward Tomasso said Monday their school found them not responsible for disorderly conduct and harassment after an honor board hearing last week. 

Some students from the nearby all-women’s Wellesley College had accused them of driving around the day after the Republican won the November election, shouting racial and homophobic slurs as they waved the flag. 

Jeffrey Robbins, Rand-Ricciardi’s attorney, previously told The Boston Globe that the Babson College investigation could not back up those allegations or prove they had purposely stopped at the Harambee House, the center for African-American students. 

The attorneys said the harassment claims couldn’t be substantiated.

Babson said it doesn’t comment on specific student conduct matters.

The college temporarily barred the two students from campus after the allegations surfaced. Its president publicly apologized to the Wellesley community.
