Hillary Clinton Gives Graduation Address

Hillary Clinton is the commencement speaker today at her alma mater, Wellesley College. She made some political remarks during her speech 48 years after graduating, but also injected some humor. She told graduates she “takes long walks in the woods” and “organizes her closets” after losing the presidential election. Clinton also drew comparisons between the administration of President Trump and that of the man who was president when she graduated — Richard Nixon. And she said President Trump’s proposed budget, which makes deep cuts to social programs, is an attack on the most vulnerable.
