Hillary Clinton Basically Says Donald Trump Presidency Will ‘End in Disgrace With His Impeachment’

Today, Hillary Clinton returned to her Alma Mater, Wellesley College, to give the commencement address. As Clinton fans and detractors alike know, one of her first big moments in the national spotlight was when she gave the address there during her own graduation at a time when students didn’t give commencement speeches. She used that speech almost five decades ago to target a senator, launching her into the political spotlight.

Today, she targeted someone else.

She went after former presidential campaign foe (and current president) Donald Trump.

While ostensibly talking about how the country overcame the shame of Richard Nixon and the distrust in the government that he sowed, she mentioned “a man whose presidency would eventually end in disgrace with his impeachment for obstruction of justice — ”

The assembled graduates cheered as she continued, “– after firing the person running the investigation into him at the Department of Justice.”

Remind you of anyone? Like, say, Donald Trump firing FBI director James Comey as the investigation into the Trump campaign and administration’s possible ties to Russia continued to dominate the news?

Clinton didn’t stop there. She said, “But here’s what I want you to know: we got through that tumultuous time and once again we began to thrive as our society changed laws and opened the circle of opportunity and rights wider and wider for ore Americans.”

Watch above and hear all of the cheers, which stand in stark contrast to the boos and walk-outs that Trump admin members Betsy DeVos and Mike Pence got during their recent commencement speeches.
