Just over a month ago HuffPost citizen reporter Dawn Teo wrote about ASU's refusal to give President Obama the customary honorary degree for delivering the commencement address. Weeks later, "Daily Show" correspondent Jason Jones and his team of producers traveled to Tempe, Arizona where Dawn helped them figure out why the "Harvard of date rape" had refused a degree to the most powerful man in America.
Jones found a student body more concerned with recreation than academics, but one that hated the idea of giving a man who had "accomplished so little" a degree. These people don't speak for the alumni, who were deeply embarrassed by the school's decision, but they certainly made the current student body look like a bunch of idiots.
