"We were furious about the past presidential election of a man whose presidency would eventually end in disgrace with his impeachment for obstruction of justice, after firing the person running the investigation into him at the Department of Justice," Clinton said.
"Look at the budget that was just proposed in Washington. It is an attack of unimaginable cruelty on the most vulnerable among us," Clinton said. She proceeded to call it a "trillion dollar mathematical lie" that more fittingly should be looked at for what it is, "a con."
"This budget along with the unrelenting attempts to repeal the Affordable Care Act shows an unimaginable level of cruelty and lack of imagination and disdain for the struggles of millions of Americans, including millions of children every single day," Clinton said. "None of us can remain silent in the face of these attacks."
"You are graduating at a time when there is a full-fledged assault on truth and reason," Clinton said. "Just log on to social media for 10 seconds—it will hit you right in the face. People denying science, concocting elaborate, hurtful conspiracy theories about child abuse rings operating out of pizza parlors, drumming up rampant fear about undocumented immigrants, minorities, the poor, turning neighbor against neighbor and sowing division in a time when we desperately need unity. Some are even denying things we see with our own eyes.
