Student Records SoCal Professor's Anti-Trump Rant; Both Face Repercussions

ORANGE COUNTY (CBS) -- After a Southern California college professor went off on President-elect Donald Trump in her class, there are now threats of expulsion and legal action.

CBS Los Angeles reported that Olga Perez Stable Cox, a human sexuality teacher Orange Coast College in Costa Mesa, called Trump's election "an act of terrorism."

"Our nation is divided. We have been assaulted. It is an act of terrorism," she told the students.

One student was so offended by the speech, he recorded it with his cellphone.

The school's Young Republicans Club has filed a formal complaint about the professor's rant.

On Thursday night, the professor's union condemned the student who recorded the video saying, "This is an illegal recording without the permission of the instructor. The student will be identified and may be facing legal action."
