“You are graduating at a time when there is a full-fledged assault on truth and reason,” 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 Nixon’s resignation and the current administration. “But here’s what I want you to know,” she said. “We got through that tumultuous time.”
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 didn’t create these circumstances, but you have the power to change them."
