Judy Cole, MSN, RN, is a clinical assistant professor who teaches at the University of Memphis, in Memphis, TN, and a maternal/newborn practicum. She has also taught at Methodist Hospital School of Nursing and Southwest Tennessee Community College.

Judy Cole’s tweet read: “If she froze to death, she wouldn’t be missed.”
Her tweet was referring to Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders.
Mike Huckabee, Sarah’s father, caught wind and shot back at Judy saying, “Woman teaches nursing at @uofmemphis and wishes my daughter would die. I feel sorry for someone so hateful and vicious.
