Another Trump administration official caused discontent at a graduation commencement ceremony.

Scores of Notre Dame University graduates and family members walked out of Vice President Mike Pence’s commencement speech on Sunday, ABC News reports.

Pence was the university’s second choice for commencement speaker, after students and faculty protested the school’s invitation to President Donald Trump.

The vice president triggered the ire of many in the audience when he praised Trump’s religious tolerance speech, which the president delivered earlier that day in Saudi Arabia. Trump’s speech seemed hypocritical because of comments he made about Muslims and Mexicans during his campaign.

Indeed, the valedictorian urged his class to “stand against the scapegoating of Muslims” and criticized Trump’s plan to build a wall at the Mexican border, the Associated Press reported.

Two weeks earlier, Bethune-Cookman University graduates turned their backs on Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos as she delivered the commencement address.

    How dare the administrators of Notre Dame invite pussy grabbing, foul mouth, neo-fascist, ultra-racist, gutter rat Donald Trump to ruin the graduates’ day as their commencement speaker? They are TOTALLY stuck on stupid. To make matters worse, the administration then goes on to invite faux christian racist lying Mike Pence, who claims not to be involved in the wholesale shakedown of the American people for his, Donald’s, and other 1% bloodsuckers’ profit. Kudos goes to the courageous students and their supporters who walked out on the idiot Pence who thinks if he lies with a straight face, people will believe he isn’t part of the conspiracy to make democracy obsolete. Thank you so much principled students of Notre Dame for seeing through the lies, propaganda, and filth that has come to be known as the Trump presidency.
    Sincerely,
    WaitingOnTrump’sImpeachment

    well looks like the vast majority were intelligent enough to put politics aside and participate in this once in a lifetime event, I guess the liberal snowflakes are off to a typical start walking out on situations they can’t handle
