When Janet Napolitano was President Obama’s head of Homeland Security, those who didn’t care much for her polices and practices that they deemed intrusive and overbearing adopted a nickname for Napolitano given to her by Matt Drudge — “Big Sis.”
Now, as president of the University of California, Big Sis finds herself in a big rift with students angry over planned tuition increases as well as Napolitano’s reaction to their tuition-hike protest.
During a meeting on the scheduled jumps in the cost of attending the university, a group of protesting students decided that taking their clothes off and shouting disruptively about their complaints would be a good idea.
As the CBS-TV affiliate in San Francisco reported, “a group of the protesters…pulled their clothes off down to their underwear during the demonstration, revealing the words Student Debt written on their bodies.”
That’s when Janet Napolitano was caught on camera, on a hot mic, remarking to a colleague that they should leave the room, adding that they didn’t have to listen “to this cr*p.”
That comment didn’t sit well with students who noted that earlier in the meeting, Napolitano had made a point of welcoming input about the planned tuition hikes at the already-pricey University of California.

It should be noted that Napolitano later apologized for her “cr*p” remark in reaction to half-naked protestors yelling at her.
