Later reports indicated that the students left for themselves a gigantic loophole in their “hunger strike”: If one of the participants gets hungry or sick, someone else can come and switch places with the “starving” protester. A former Yale student, Dimitri Halikias, posted a pamphlet about the strike on Twitter and acknowledged the hunger strike is really only “symbolic.” Halikias, who said the strike is “still inspirational” despite the loophole, later deleted the tweet from his account.

On Friday, the GOP student group held a barbeque in close proximity to the hunger strike to mark the ridiculous event.

Needless to say, lots of liberals were outraged by the move. For instance, Vice politics writer Eve Peyser said the move was “gross” and “cruel.” Far-left editor at ThinkProgress Ian Millhiser called the College Republicans “self-entitled pricks.”
