Hillary Clinton Just Trolled Trump Hard During Her Yale Commencement Speech

After losing the 2016 Presidential Election, Hillary Clinton has mostly remained out of the spotlight (despite how often right-wing media tries to pull her back in). During her commencement speech at Yale University on Sunday, May 20th, she pulled a stunt that guaranteed she’d make headlines Monday morning – and she did.

“I brought a hat too,” Clinton says to the crowd of graduates and attendees before pulling out an ushanka, “a Russian hat.” As the Yale graduates cheered for the former Secretary of State, Clinton topped off her jab at President Trump with, “If you can’t beat ‘em, join ‘em.”

As expected, not everyone thought the joke was hilarious. Then again, James Woods appears to be stuck with a perpetual scowl.

Clinton, a graduate of Yale Law School, delivered a commencement speech filled with encouragement for the class, encouraging them to remain resilient against what the world throws at them and “contribute meaningfully to the future of democracy.” 

Of course, she took the opportunity to throw in a few jokes and references to the scandals she faced while running against Donald Trump. “If you thought my emails were scandalous you should hear my singing voice,” Clinton quipped, referencing the infamous email scandal that rocked her campaign late in the race. She then went on to joke that she buried a tape of her rocking it acapella “so deeply that not even WikiLeaks would be able to find it.”

In between urging the Yale students to vote and call out “fake news,” Clinton briefly discussed her 2016 loss, stating, “No, I’m still not over it. I still think about the 2016 election, I still regret the mistakes I made.” Despite her jokes towards President Trump, Clinton spoke about her concern for the United States. “We’re living through a time when fundamental rights, civic virtue, freedom of the press, even facts and reason are under assault like never before.”

“At this moment in our history, our country depends on every citizen believing in the power of their actions even when that power is invisible and their efforts feel like an uphill battle,” Clinton stated, referencing the importance of voting and the power of one voice.
