"Dozens" of Graduates and Family Members Walk Out on Pence at Notre Dame Commencement

May 21, 2107

(AP) — Dozens of graduates and family members silently stood and walked out Sunday as Vice President Mike Pence began his address at Notre Dame's commencement ceremony.

Pence, the former governor of Indiana, was invited to speak after Notre Dame students and faculty protested the prospect of President Donald Trump being invited to become the seventh U.S. president to give the commencement address.

Pence spoke briefly of Trump, praising his speech to the leaders of 50 Arab and Muslim nations earlier in the day in Saudi Arabia. Pence said the president "spoke out against religious persecution of all people of all faiths and on the world stage he condemned, in his words, the murder of innocent Muslims, the oppression of women, the persecution of Jews and the slaughter of Christians."

Trump has faced harsh criticism for his anti-Islamic rhetoric during the campaign, as well as his administration's legal battle to impose a travel ban on several Muslim-majority countries.

        OK coming from someone that was actually there, probably 10 people walked out and everyone else stayed. How can they and why do they blow this up into a story that really isn't? The media is so slanted and corrupt in the US it's scary. Feels almost like a dictatorship style news organization.

        We are for those coddled grads walking out it is their free speech.They are not for ours though. They are taught how to be good little Communist fascists. That is what the liberal mindset does is project what they are. When they call you a fascists it is to hide their fascism when they say:" TRUMP COLLUDED WITH RUSSIA IT IS TO HIDE THEIR OWN COLLUSION. " They always project what they are.

        Cassandra Dimaro and her parents were among those who walked out. Dimaro told the South Bend Tribune that it was a show of solidarity "for those of us impacted by the policies of the Trump administration." Unfortunately, Dimaro couldn't come up with any Trump policies that impacted her but hey, who needs facts when the Kool Aid has already been downed? And it appears that she gets her ignorance honestly.

        What a shameful, disrespectful display. I cannot believe that any parent would participate, much less condone, such behavior. We are NOT always going to agree about EVERYTHING. It is called life and it's about to smack a whole lot of these folks right square in the face.

        They walked out because they realized that their loans for the stupid degrees won't be forgiven, the ones who are Engineer and Science stay around. When you major in something respectful, you know how to be respectful of others, regardless of difference in opinions.

        Of course they walked out, because they don't care about any of the issues Pence was relaying to them. Brainwashed, uncaring, emotionless zombies programmed by the liberal establishment, and nothing more. But speak out against homosexuality, or killing babies in the womb, and they might attack and try to eat your brains! Becasue they have none. Why else?

        Dumb graduates. Wait till they actually earn an income and realize how much Trump saved them so they can pay their loans back. Under Obama they would be paying 20% more in taxes. These kids don't really listen to the news and read, they just hear the media pundits and believe everything they say. Sad state of affairs and ill boding for our country
