โ€œYou are graduating at a time when there is a full-fledged assault on truth and reason,โ€ Hillary Clinton told the graduating class of her alma mater, Wellesley College. Her fiery commencement speech was reminiscent of her graduation speech 48 years ago, Wellesley's first student address.
.
In Friday's speech, #Clinton attacked President #Trump and his policies, including an implicit comparison between Nixonโ€™s resignation and the current administration. โ€œBut hereโ€™s what I want you to know,โ€ she said. โ€œWe got through that tumultuous time.โ€
.
The former secretary of state urged students to stand up for their values, and above all, the truth. "The future of #America depends on brave, thoughtful people insisting on truth and integrity right now, every day. You didnโ€™t create these circumstances, but you have the power to change them."

World leaders look up during an aerial fly over at the new NATO headquarters in #Brussels on Thursday. Trump slammed fellow #NATO leaders for not meeting financial obligations in a public broadside.
.
The 27 other leaders looked on in awkward silence as Trump suggested most NATO countries were freeloaders not paying their share for military protection.
.
"Twenty-three of the 28 nations are still not paying what they should be paying and what they're supposed to be paying for their defense," Trump said. "This is not fair to the people and the taxpayers of the United States."

A long, long time agoโ€ฆ 40 years to be exact on May 25, 1977, the first โ€œStar Warsโ€ film debuted in theaters, forever changing Hollywood and spawning an empire in its wake.
