Hillary Clinton repeatedly tweaks Trump during a college commencement address
Hillary Clinton delivered the commencement address at her alma mater, Wellesley College, Friday, 48 years after she was the school?s first-ever student commencement speaker when she graduated in 1969. In one of her most high-profile appearances since losing the presidential election, Clinton doled out biting criticism of President Trump?s tumultuous administration, albeit without mentioning him by name. Pointedly, she referenced the political climate at the time of her 1969 speech, when ?we were furious about the past presidential election of a man whose presidency would end with disgrace with his impeachment for obstruction of justice, after he fired the man running the investigation into him at the Department of Justice.? This reference to Richard Nixon?s Watergate scandal was an apparent connection to Trump, who sparked a firestorm by suddenly firing James Comey as FBI director earlier this month (although Nixon resigned before he was actually impeached).
