Hillary Clinton returned to her alma mater, Wellesley College, to give a commencement speech to the graduating class on Friday.
And as expected, she used the platform to bash President Trump and his administration:
“When people in power invent their own facts and attack those who question them, it can mark the beginning of the end of a free society. That is not hyperbole, it is what authoritarian regimes throughout history have done. … They attempt to control reality.”
She reemphasized her attacks on Trump’s budget that she had made earlier this week:
“An attack of unimaginable cruelty on the most vulnerable among us — the youngest, the oldest, the poorest, and hard working people who need a little help to gain or hang on to a decent, middle-class life. Let’s call it what it is, it’s a con. They don’t even try to hide it.”
Clinton continued: “We got through that tumultuous time, and once again we began to thrive.”
Fake news and theories perpetuated on social media were also addressed, joking that “some are even denying things we see with our own eyes. Like the size of crowds.”
Eventually, the failed presidential candidate began talking about her major election loss:
“You may have heard that things didn’t go exactly as I planned. But you know what, I’m doing O.K… I spent time with my family, walked in the woods, organized my closets and I won’t lie, chardonnay helped a little too.”
Clinton delivered the commencement address at Wellesley as a a student and again 25 years ago.
