Jonathan Oosting The Detroit News Published 2:39 PM EDT Jul 3, 2019 Former Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder has withdrawn from a planned one-year fellowship at Harvard University following intense criticism of the appointment and continued outrage over the Flint water contamination crisis. The Ann Arbor Republican said he informed the Harvard Kennedy School of the decision Wednesday. "While it would have been exciting to share my experiences both positive and negative, our country’s current political environment and its lack of civility would have likely created an environment that would be too disruptive at the Kennedy School," Snyder said in a statement posted on social media. "I wish them the best in the coming academic year." Harvard had emphasized Snyder's advocacy of civility in politics as one of the reasons it chose him for the fellowship, but the appointment sparked swift and harsh online backlash, primarily from the political left.

C.S. / Orleans Oh, C.S., I’m so sorry you’re going through this. Mental illness is hell. You’ve got two options, as I see it.
