Hillary Clinton appeared at Wellesley College to make a commencement speech to graduates on Friday. Wellesley is a private women’s liberal arts school, which Clinton graduated from in 1969. Since then, she has made several appearances back to the school to visit and speak.
In her speech she discussed her past experiences, encouraged others to run for office someday, and stated she has been doing well since her loss in the 2016 election. Even though 'things didn't go as planned', she had the chance to spend extra time with her grandchildren and ‘chardonnay helped a little, too’. She also bashed our current president, as well as the recent budget proposal.
“We were furious about the past presidential election of a man whose presidency would eventually end in impeachment for his obstruction of justice.”
President Trump also gave a speech to graduates at Liberty University in mid-May. Liberty is a non-profit, private Christian college.
However, Trump’s speech had a different approach and focus: God. In his speech, he states that the Declaration of Independence mentions our Creator four times. He also emphasizes the significance of faith and our Father in Heaven.
“As long as I am your president, no one is ever going to stop you from practicing your faith and preaching what’s in your heart…[I’ve] seen first hand how the system is broken...A small group of failed voices who think they know everything and understand everyone, want to tell everybody else how to live and what to do and how to think, but you aren’t going to let other people tell you what you believe especially when you know that you are right."
“You must go forward into the world and turn your hopes and dreams into action. America has always been the land of dreams because America is a nation of true believers...In America, we don’t worship government, we worship God...May God bless the class of 2017, may God bless United States of America, may God bless all of you here today.”
