tv   At This Hour With Kate Bolduan  CNN  May 26, 2017 8:00am-9:01am PDT

8:00 am
-- captions by vitac -- www.vitac.com hello, everyone. i'm kate bolduan. moments from now, hillary clinton will be speaking out, going back to where it all began for her in some respects, getting ready to give the commencement address at her alma mater, wellesley college in massachusetts. she did the very same back in 1969 when she was class president and was wellesley's first student commencement speaker then. she spoke again at the college's commencement in 1992, but of course, just look at the calendar. a lot has happened since 1992. first lady, senator, secretary of state and defeated 2016 presidential candidate, just to name a few things. it will be very interesting to hear what her message is for the 2017 graduates of the all-women's college. a source close to clinton tells cnn that she will connect the
8:01 am
politics of 1969 to the politics of now and what that message will be. stand by for that. just a short time ago, she put out a tweet, tweeting "back to wellesley today to talk to the class of 2017 about what comes next." probably talking about what comes next for them, but maybe also what comes next for her. we'll bring you her speech, her remarks as soon as she begins. following that. but also new this morning, president trump weighing in on the special election in montana and republican greg gianforte's big win last night. he is now the republican congressman-elect, who is also now charged with assaulting a reporter just a day before voters went to the polls. here is what the president said just a short time ago about the election from the g7 summit in sicily. >> thank you! thank you. gracias. >> thank you! thank you!
8:02 am
>> gianforte, he beat his democratic opponent by seven points overnight -- by about seven points overnight. president trump won much bigger there in november, beating hillary clinton by 20 points in big sky country. with that perspective, let's get the latest on the win and the assault charge fallout. cnn's kyung lah is in missoula, montana, with more. following you on twitter and following you on tv, it's very clear that you've heard quite a lot from voters since you have been in montana. as the sun is rising there now, what are you hearing today? >> reporter: a win is a win. i mean, that's essentially what the locals are saying here when it comes to gianforte's victory, that at the end of the day, he did win. now, that is not entirely surprising. we heard all during the day from republicans who were heading to the polls that they anticipated that he would win, that this late surprise came too late, and they anticipated that he would win. what we're hearing from democrats, though, is look at that win. look at the single-digit win
8:03 am
that gianforte made. and what they were also noting is that he basically didn't show up on election day until he won, and then he decided to apologize about the incident with "the guardian" reporter. take a listen. >> sometimes hard work is borne out of hard lessons. last night, i learned a lesson. last night, i made a mistake. and i took an action that i can't take back, and i'm not proud of what happened. i should not have responded in the way that i did. and for that, i'm sorry. >> and you're forgiven! >> i should not have treated that reporter that way. and for that, i'm sorry, mr. ben jacobs. >> reporter: a couple of things
8:04 am
he didn't mention is the statement he put out the night before, that his campaign put out the night before, that didn't match the audio, that didn't take responsibility for what happened with that reporter. and something else, kate, you may have heard some of the shouting in that crowd. a lot of the supporters there didn't think he needed to apologize. and we didn't get much word on what's going to happen with his court appearance when he does have to appear sometime between now and june 7th. he has to appear in court for that misdemeanor assault charge. kate? >> we'll have to see where that lands on the calendar with his swearing-in and when he'll head to the capitol. that could be some interesting timing. great to see you, thank you so much. joining me now discussing the fallout from the politics and the assault charge, cnn political commentator and former clinton white house aid keith boykin and conservative commentator and columnist kaitlin mceneny is here. hewey-burns from real clear politics is here and princeton
8:05 am
history professor julian zelizer. for some reason, i always get your name right, even though it is a tongue-twister. >> impressive. >> so great having you all here. but first, kayleigh, what is your biggest takeaway from the montana election? >> look, there are certain lines that should define partisanship. physical assault is one of them. sexual transgressions like what anthony weiner did, is another one. and i think we're at a moment where we're so entrenched in our partisan corners, and it would be nice if we saw someone like house speaker paul ryan not only say we need an apology, but if this is true, perhaps consider stepping down. look at censure charges in the house of representatives. because there are certain things, especially when they're mishandled, like it was mishandled in jean forte's case -- >> with the original statement. >> he apologized after he won. he didn't apologize during the election when it wouldn't have been politically advantageous for him to do so, or that was his calculus, at least. so, i think we need to step back in both parties, analyze situations where if we cross a
8:06 am
certain line, we all come out against it. >> where is the line now? that's the question. >> physical assault should be one of those lines. >> thanks for putting your neck out there on ka tha one, kayleigh. i really appreciate it! keith, let me get you in on this. not on the assault, but on this. trump won montana by 20 points. yes, this was an uphill battle for democrats all along the way in the special election, but this was one of the big targets for democrats where they really saw an opening where if they could win this, this would show the momentum that democrats have the wind at their backs and they representatives in 2018. with this, now all eyes, of course, turn to june 20th, special election in georgia. but here's the question, when it comes purely to wins and losses, when are democrats going to start winning? >> well, hopefully, they'll start winning with jon ossoff in georgia. i think this doesn't necessarily bode badly or well for the
8:07 am
democrats. i wasn't expecting to win in montana, honestly. but i do think it's a short-term victory for the republicans in the sense that it's hard for democrats to win in some of these traditionally white, republican, red states like montana. i think bill clinton won the state back in 1992. he was probably the last democrat and the only one who's done it in a long time. but we're in a difficult point right now. the republican party is the party that wins the majority of the white vote consistently, and the democratic party is consistently winning the majority of the nonwhite vote. the problem is for the republicans in the long term is that the demographics are changing, so as we start to see more nonwhite voters in the polls, that makes it increasingly hard for republicans to use their same brand of politics to win elections. >> i hear you, keith, and that's good spin, and you may not have thought that this one was going to be close, but kayleigh, this was a target, right? i mean, this was something that democrats saw, yeah, it was an uphill battle, but that's why they thought it would be such a big win if they got it. is this a blow to democrats? >> we talk about montana as a
8:08 am
deep red state, and yes, it went for donald trump by 20 points in the election, but steve bullock, the governor, was elected to his second term by about four points against gianforte in that same election, so this state has an independent streak. so, there were democrats looking at it. they weren't invested as heavily there as they are in that georgia district coming up next month. and when you're looking at the map that democrats are looking at, they're looking more at states or districts like that georgia one, where either trump won by a narrow margin or districts that hillary clinton won. but i think, you know, looking at this, they thought that not only the latest -- the late developments in this race would have a difference, but also kind of the overall mood against trump didn't really pan out here. and when we heard from voters there -- >> right. >> -- from reporting, they were supportive of gianforte even after that revelation and that kind of reflected -- gianforte embraced donald trump. he ran on the donald trump kind of brand in the state. >> yeah, politically bear-hugged
8:09 am
him, right? >> and that's different from his last campaign where he tried to create some distance. >> let's talk about something kayleigh brought up, julian. he apologized last night after his win. brought us the sound. us, - republicans today are saying that they're happy that he apologized, but his apology does not address what is clearly now a contradiction from his original statement where, i don't need to read you the whole thing again, but he basically blames it on what he viewed as a liberal reporter who kind of -- which is clearly a contradiction in what he apologized for last night, which makes me wonder, what is gianforte sorry for? >> i'm not sure what he's sorry for. here you have someone running for office who appears to have body slammed a reporter. it's an unbelievable story, and he wins. so, you have the contradiction in that statement and how does the republican party deal with that, and you have the fact that the victor is someone who
8:10 am
physically assaulted a journalist just before the election. and i think the republican party has to make a decision -- do we respond to something like this perhaps through censure, or do we say this is politics as normal post donald trump? and i think that could be a problem for the party. >> i know we've got go to quick break, but keith, let me ask you that, just jump in on this what more do you want to see republicans do, keith? i mean, because at this point, paul ryan, he wanted him to apologize. today he put out a statement saying that gianforte will be a valuable voice in the house republican caucus, but what more do republicans need to do? what more can republicans do? he was voted in. >> i'm actually going to agree with kayleigh on this. i mean, i think she's right in the sense that paul ryan was right to call for an apology but didn't call for him to withdraw from the race. i think that we've crossed the boundaries now, and i think donald trump is largely responsible for contributing to that atmosphere. kayleigh will probably disagree with that part.
8:11 am
but here we have mike pence, the vice president of the united states who says he's a christian first and then a conservative and then a republican in that order, and mike pence, this great christian, refuses to stand up and say a single word when this assault is taking place and everyone knows about it. then you have $100,000 coming in to the coffers for gianforte's campaign in the last day of the campaign after the body slam, and then an apology that happens after he's elected! there's no courage here, there's no moral integrity here, and i think it's time for the republican party to stand for something. it's supposed to be -- it used to claim to be the party of family values and integrity. where is that? how do you get back to that? because it's not happening right now, and i applaud kayleigh for at least standing up and saying that paul ryan should have done more than just demand an apology. >> and for the record, the only reason -- the reason keith is not in studio with us is not because he was afraid that kayleigh was going to body slam him. i'm just going to say that. it was just a scheduling thing.
8:12 am
just saying, because i've seen her work, and it's terrifying, and impressive. >> that's true. >> okay, much more to come. thanks. not to make light of a very serious situation, but we are going to move on now. the man closest to the president is now under fbi scrutiny in the ongoing russia investigation. how this now impacts jared kushner's role in the white house. plus, one democratic senator says he fears michael flynn is secretly cooperating now with the justice department, undercutting multiple other investigations going on in congress. hear why on that one. and we're now being told the manchester concert bomber made a phone call just 15 minutes before his attack. hear who he called and how police are now trying to contain his network, the network that he's been working with. we'll be right back. can you love wearing powerful sunscreen? yes! neutrogena® ultra sheer. unbeatable protection helps prevent early skin aging and skin cancer with a clean feel. the best for your skin. ultra sheer®. neutrogena®.

8:16 am
new this morning, another name has popped up in the russia investigation, and it's jared kushner. the fbi is looking at his role in the campaign's data analytics operation, his relationship with former national security adviser michael flynn, and his own contacts with russian officials. however, at this point, he is not a target of the probe and there are no allegations that he committed any wrongdoing. so, where does that leave us? let me bring in right now paul calayan, cnn legal analyst,
8:17 am
kayleigh burns is back with me. andrew rice is a contributing editor with "new york" magazine and lindsey wit witticombbe with "the new yorker." you've written extensively about jared kushner's work, but put it into context for me, caitlin. this appears to be the only current white house official under scrutiny now by the fbi. jared's attorney says they are ready and willing to cooperate with any investigation, but they haven't been contacted yet. what is your sense on how big of a concern this is for the white house? >> remember that jared kushner, there was controversy surrounding his nondisclosed meetings with the russian ambassador, as you mentioned, also with the russian state bank meeting. so, there are a couple questions involving the nature of those conversations, including whether there was any relationship to the businesses, whether there was any -- you know, what the exact kinds of conversations
8:18 am
were. >> right. >> jared kushner is one of the key members of this white house, and he is, of course, an unelected, or unkwon firmed, right? >> right. >> his position did not have to go through the scrutiny of the senate, and so there are lots of questions. this also comes, of course, as he is abroad with the president, his portfolio, as we know, is expansive. he is also a person that lots of members of congress want to talk to in regards to their investigation, and he has said he would comply with those as well. >> that's exactly right. andrew, you wrote a major cover story on kushner back in january? >> in january, during the transition. >> and that's an important part of kind of where the scrutiny is at this moment. everyone in america at this point knows that he is one of the president's closest advisers, but what did you learn in your research and in your writing about how involved he is, what level of trust and where his place is in terms of the real decision-making for the
8:19 am
president? >> and i think this is really pertinent to the whole question of the fbi investigation, because allegedly, or reportedly, these meetings took place during the transition, which is a time period when jared was very much running the show. i mean, the trump campaign i think won maybe even to their own surprise, and much of the transition was very improvised. you may recall that chris christie was sort of booted out. >> right. he was in charge and then quickly not. >> and jared took over. and so, they were sort of improvising everything on the fly, including contacts with foreign governments. russia wasn't the only one. they were having back-channel discussions with israel at the time, and really, they were kind of almost running interference against the obama administration's closing foreign policy moves. so, this all happened in the context of this transitional period. >> fascinating. and lindsey has written extensively about kushner and ivanka and kind of their power
8:20 am
center in the campaign and now the white house. what is known about one of the focuses is, it sounds boring, but it's super, super important, the data operations that they have. what is known about that data analytics operation that he ran and why it's now under scrutiny? >> i think that he -- i mean, one thing that jared always has taken a lot of pride in is sort of his connections with silicon valley, with the tech world, which he admires. so, he hired contractors to run this team. so, that was kind of what he oversaw. so, i imagine that what investigators would be interested in -- he gave interviews where he kind of boasted about their ability to micro target voters in wisconsin and in a lot of these swing states. >> places where they shouldn't be doing so well, right? >> yeah. i mean, i would guess were they sharing any of that information with russian hackers, you know, or with the russian bahts and so
8:21 am
forth? i mean, you know, as the person who oversaw that part of the campaign, he would be the, you know, someone they'd want to talk to. >> one that would know it. paul, as u mentioned earlier, there is no indication that he is a target or there is any allegation of wrongdoing at this moment. if that stays, right, if that -- what would the fbi want with him? >> because he had information about data collection, about social media use in the campaign. any contact with the russians is, of course, going to be of great interest. let's say hypothetically the russians have in their possession anti-hillary documents, e-mails that would hurt her campaign, and they're looking for a way to micro target pro trump voters. well, what better way to explore this topic than by finding the guy in charge of micro targeting pro trump people? jared kushner may have been in that position. so if i'm an fbi agent, i
8:22 am
certainly want to talk to him. now, that's not to suggest that this actually happened, but the fbi is looking for the people who are most likely to have information that will push the investigation forward. >> right. they've got to rule things out and also rule things in, right? >> exactly, so of course they're going to talk to him. he's somebody with knowledge. >> one of the things that's come up, matt miller, former spokesman for the department of justice under obama, he on this whole topic of kushner being under scrutiny tweeted "typical government employees would likely have their security clearances suspended while this is ongoing. what will trump do for his son-in-law?" do you agree that his security clearance would be suspended if -- he's not a target. >> no -- well -- >> what do you think? what's your theory? >> i think ultimately people forget that this is up to the president of the united states as to whose security clearance is suspended. and if the president doesn't want his security clearance suspended, it will not be. i mean, the whole problem, of course, with the trump administration has been you've
8:23 am
had people coming in from the business world who have little government experience, and they're making a lot of errors on these forms. now, whether this is deliberately hiding information or whether they're simply not paying attention when they're filling out these lengthy government forms remains to be seen, but i'd be very surprised if kushner is taken out of the advisory role as a result of -- >> and i do wonder, one thing that we do know about the president is the president doesn't like attention -- when someone else is getting a lot of attention. maybe he does in this regard because maybe this is not the most welcome of attention. what do you think this scrutiny does, from your reporting, andrew, what do you think the scrutiny does, if anything, to the relationship between jared kushner and the president? >> it's hard to say, because jared kushner has a different relationship with the president than seemingly almost anyone else besides ivanka. and really, he is somebody that the president seems to trust
8:24 am
completely. and so, his loyalty, which has not been incredibly strong towards other members of the administration, i think probably will go much deeper to jared. but on the previous point, i just wanted to mention that one of the things that was sort of mentioned as an aside in the "washington post" article is that the investigation seems to have broadened to possibly encompass not just electoral issues but potential financial improprietie improprieties, and this is important when jared kushner comes into play, because i think on those disclosure forms, there are hundreds and hundreds of llcs, anonymous shell companies listed. and there's nothing like intrinsically illegal or nefarious about that. that's typical real estate financing. >> right. >> but it's a very opaque industry. and so, therefore, there might be a lot of questions that the fbi might now be asking about where money is coming into the real estate business that
8:25 am
wouldn't necessarily be eyebrow-raising if it was just a normal real estate developer, but now that it's a real estate developer with a security clearance, it becomes an issue. >> interesting point. guys, stand by. we've got a lot of news we're watching now. we will get back to this in a second. coming up, british officials now say they are trying to contain -- that's their wording -- a terror network that's linked to the manchester suicide bomber. how far can that network reach? and who did the bomber call minutes before the attack. and we're keeping our eye on massachusetts. hillary clinton giving the commencement speech at hers alma mater. we're told she will dip her toe into politics. bring you her remarks when they begin. skin-flex™ bandages. our best bandage yet! it dries almost instantly. better? yeah. good thing because stopping never crosses your mind. band-aid® brand. stick with it™

new details just in on the deadly ambush of children and parents at a concert in manchester, england. authorities say that the suicide bomber -- we're going to show you here at left of your screen -- yeah, on the left part of your screen -- that he spoke to his brother in libya just 15 minutes before the attack. then he, of course, went on to kill 22 people. police have since arrested the bomber's brother as well as his father and eight more people are also in custody now in connection with the attack. meantime, british authorities tell cnn they are trying to contain -- those were their words -- the network behind the suicide bombing. let's begin right there and bring in cnn europe editor nina dos santos, joining me now. nina, what does trying to contain the network look like? what are they saying here? >> reporter: hi there, kate.
8:31 am
well, trying to contain the network means more raids. we've had raids over the last three days since this attack took place on monday evening. we had more raids this morning, not in manchester, but in another city in the northwest as well. and we've had another arrest this morning. so, in total, ten people have been arrested. two of them have been released without charge, which means, as you said, there are still eight people who currently remain in custody. but what is crucial here is that authorities are saying that inside of some of these raids, they have managed to find vital pieces of evidence. now, does that mean they found evidence of potentially bomb-making activity, a bomb-making factory in some of these apartments and properties that they've been raiding? we just don't know that level of detail. but what we do know is that they've seemed to have veered away from the idea that salman abedi may have just been a mule carrying the device and there may be a master bombmaker on the loose towards the fact instead that he may have made this bomb himself because he was trained outside of this country,
8:32 am
somewhere else, and given the expertise to do so. he spent about a month in libya about a month before returning to this country to go on and commit this attack. it's emerged, as you pointed out, that he had been in contact with his brother just 15 minutes before this attack took place. his brother said that he knew he was radicalized, that he was planning something, but he didn't know exactly what. until authorities can piece together whether there was anybody else who was part of this network who may have been under the similar device that could have been made at the hands of salman abedi, or indeed, somewhere else, someone else, this country still remains under a critical state of alert as we head into what is an important bank holiday weekend where key sporting events will see many people coming together, and the national election campaign also resumes, kate. >> exactly. doesn't get any easier. nina, thank you very, very much. i really appreciate it. coming ahead for us, could michael flynn already be talking to the justice department? what does that mean? a growing number of lawmakers say they do not know, but they

flynn is already cooperating with the department of justice investigation, and perhaps even has been for some time. all the reporting indicates that they've got him dead to rights on a false statement felony for what he told the fbi when they interviewed him in the white house. >> all right, let me bring in congressional correspondent phil mattingly for much more on this. phil, what answers are lawmakers looking for here? >> reporter: i think a couple things. one, they want to make sure their investigations can keep moving forward. that was the question. even with lawmakers happy with the appointment of mueller as the special counsel, very happy the special counsel was appointed, made clear they are moving forward with their investigations. the primary answers they want from robert muler where is your investigation going and how can we avoid running into each other? an example of this yesterday, the fbi responded to oversight chairman jason chaffetz saying, no, we will not at this time
8:39 am
turn over any documents, any recordings, any transcripts of the james comey memos, the reported memos that james comey was keeping, also noting turning over documents of conversations with the white house and justice department officials on this investigation. their rationale is as robert mueller gets up and running in this investigation, they want to make sure everything is clear with him before anything moves forward. now, jason chaffetz immediately responded with a letter saying we have our own constitutional prerogative to conduct investigations. we plan on complementing your investigation, and he put on a new dead line and said we want answers by june 8th. so, what you're seeing is really lawmakers and the folks doing the investigation trying to figure out how to work with one another, how to complement one another, how to, in the terminology they use, deconflict with one another. but as you know, kate, there's a lot of frustration in this. there are a lot of people who are ambitious, who really want these investigations to go forward, and they don't want to be road-blocked or face hurdles as they move forward in that process. >> i do love that people are using the word deconfliction

(laughing) so that's it? we made you a cake. a trip back to the dthe doctor's office, mean just for a shot. but why go back there, when you can stay home... ...with neulasta onpro? strong chemo can put you at risk of serious infection, which could lead to hospitalizations. in a key study, neulasta reduced the risk of infection from 17% to 1%... ...a 94% decrease. applied the day of chemo, neulasta onpro is designed to deliver neulasta the next day, so you can stay home. neulasta is for certain cancer patients receiving strong chemotherapy. do not take neulasta if you're allergic to neulasta or neupogen (filgrastim). ruptured spleen, sometimes fatal as well as serious lung problems, allergic reactions, kidney injuries,
8:44 am
and capillary leak syndrome have occurred. report abdominal or shoulder tip pain, trouble breathing or allergic reactions to your doctor right away. in patients with sickle cell disorders, serious, sometimes fatal crises can occur. the most common side effect is bone and muscle ache. so why go back there? if you'd rather be home, ask your doctor about neulasta onpro. an olive branch from one government to another, it appears. secretary of state rex tillerson made his first official visit to the uk amid frustrations spilling out in public over intelligence leaks following monday's deadly terror attack in manchester. so, where do things stand now? let's go to michelle kosinski, following all this from london. michelle, it seems first step in his mea culpa was saying it's all on us. what are you hearing? >> reporter: yeah, exactly. this was extraordinary to hear because we're all gathered there for them to jointly sign letters
8:45 am
of condolence over manchester. you know, it was a chance for them to meet, to smooth things over in private. then during this very brief question-and-answer session, secretary of state tillerson just launched into what amounted to an apology. he didn't say we're sorry, but that's essentially what he was saying. i mean, he said that the u.s. regrets it, that the u.s. takes full responsibility, and he went a step further by saying that they're committed to try to find the source of these leaks that made the british government so upset that they actually stopped access, they stopped sharing with the u.s. for at least, i think it was, what, a day or two there, and that they would prosecute, if necessary, people who are leaking. and i think what makes this even more impactful is to think it was just a matter of weeks ago that britain again was upset with the u.s., and the u.s. said what amounted to an apology again but in private when the trump administration said that it was the equivalent of the nsa
8:46 am
in britain that might have been wiretapping the white house. i mean, the gchq was so upset over this, they put out a rare statement, calling it utter nonsense. so, again, here we are with the two closest allies, you could say in the world, and the u.s. having to apologize. >> yeah, so, it's this spilling over in public, this happening in this meeting in london between secretary of state and his counterpart, but also reaching to the presidential level. the president and theresa may, they met on the sidelines today. did we hear what went on in that meeting? what was discussd? >> reporter: yeah, i mean -- yeah, again, this is a way to try to smooth things over. there's a lot to discuss. i mean, the u.s. and the uk cooperate extremely closely on so many issues, and it really raised eyebrows yesterday after his address at nato that he launched right into reprimands over countries that aren't paying in as much as the u.s. and the fact that he didn't
8:47 am
really hit russia. i mean, russia's threat, russia's taking over part of ukraine is the reason why nato over the past two years has been beefing up its defenses. so, the white house defended trump and the way he presented this by saying, well, he was indirectly addressing russia by trying to get people to pay more. that is essentially addressing what russia's been doing, its behavior that nato's trying to stop and avert in the future, but that didn't stop the reactions. i mean, when you look at "the new york times'" op ed over this, calling it a failure, joe scarborough calling trump's words a love note to vladimir putin. it made headlines around the world, and now i think this is one more area where the white house is going to do some mitigation and try to make up for this. >> michelle, you're all over it. great to see you. thank you so much. michelle kosinski's in london for us right now. any moment now, hillary clinton will be taking to the microphone. she'll be giving the
8:48 am
commencement speech at her alma mat mater, wellesley college, in massachusetts. we will bring you those remarks live. will she dip her toe into politi politics? how far will she go? we will see.
8:49 am
8:50 am
8:51 am
. we are standing by right now. you're taking a live look at wellsly college in massachusetts where paula johnson is giving her introductory remarks. she is introducing hillary clinton who will be taking to the microphone. we'll bring that to you as soon as it begins. with that in mind, let's discuss. hillary clinton back in the j game. >> keith is with me. former clinton white house aide. what do you want to hear from hillary clinton today when she takes the microphone? this is a unique opportunity. >> i just want to hear that she's still engaged. i feel like she's been unduly criticized after the election. donald trump have been attacking her. people on the left have been attacking her for not winning. i want to have her voice. she doesn't have to get into an
8:52 am
attack to donald trump. but she does aeoffer a unique perspective where she can speak about rebuilding our country and have a leadership that brings us together. we haven't i think seen that much recently. people are clearly dissatisfied as you can see from the poll numbers. >> let me jump in. thank you so much. hillary clinton now set to give her commencement speech. ary alma mater. let's listen in. >> thank you so much for that warm welcome. i am happy to be back here at wellesley especially for president johnson's first commencement and to thank her, the trustees, families and
8:53 am
friends, faculty, staff, and guests for understanding and perpetuating the importance of this college. what it stands for, what it has meant and what it will do in the years ahead. and most importantly, it's wonderful to be here with another green class to say congratulations to the class of 2017. [ cheers and applau [ cheers and applause ] >> now, i have some of my dear friends here from my class. a green class of 1969. and i assume or at least you can tell me later unlike us, you
8:54 am
actually have a class cheer. { laughter } >> 1969 wellesley. { laughter } >> yet another year with no class cheer. but it is such an honor to join with the college and all who have come to celebrate this day with you and to recognize the amazing futures that await you. you know, four years ago maybe a little more or less for some of you -- just a minute. i've got to get a lozenge.
8:55 am
thank you. >> i told the trustees i was sitting with after hearing paula's speech i didn't think i could get through it. so we'll blame allergy instead of emotion. but you know, you arrived at this campus -- [ cheers and applause ] >> you arrived from all over. you joined students from 49 states and 58 countries. now, maybe you felt like you belonged right away. i doubt it. but maybe some of you did and you've never waivered. but maybe you changed your major three times and your hair style twice as many as that. or maybe after your first month of classes you made a frantic
8:56 am
collect call. ask your parents what that was. { laughter } >> back to illinois to tell your mother and father you weren't smart enough to be here. my father said okay, come home. { laughter } >> my mother said you have to stick it out. that's what happened to me. [ cheers and applause ] but whatever your path, you dream big. you probably in true wellesley fashion planned your academic and extracurricular schedule right down to the minute. so this day that you're been waiting for and maybe dreading a
8:57 am
little is finally here. as president johnson said, i spoke at my commencement 48 years ago. i came back 25 years ago to speak at another commencement. i couldn't think of anyplace i'd rather be this year than right here. [ cheers and applau [ cheers and applause ] you may have heard that things didn't exactly go the way i planned. { laughter } >> but you know what? i'm doing okay.
8:58 am
[ cheers and applause ] i've gotten to spend time with my family, especially my amazing grandchildren. i was going to give the entire commencement speech about them but was talked out of it. { laughter } >> long walks in the woods. organizing my closets, right? i won't lie. chardonnay helped a little too. [ cheers and applau [ cheers and applause ] here's what helped most of all. remembering who i am, where i come from, and what i believe. and that is what wellesley means to me. this college gave me so much. it launched me on a life of service and provided friends that i still treasure. so wherever your life takes you, i hope that wellesley serves as
8:59 am
that kind of touchstone for you. now, if any of you are nervous about what you'll be walking into when you leave the campus, i know that feeling. i do remember my commencement. i've been asked by my classmates to speak. i stayed up all night with my friends, the third floor of davis. [ cheers and applause ] writing and editing the speech. by the time we gathered in the academic quad, i was exhausted. my hair was a wreck. the mortar board made it even worse. but i was pretty oblivious to all of that, because what my friend his asked me to do was to talk about our worries and about our ability and responsibility to do something about them. we didn't trust government,
9:00 am
authority figures, or really anyone over 30. { laughter } >> in large part, thanks to years of heavy casualties and dishonest official statements about vietnam and deep differences over civil rights and poverty here at home. we were asking urgent questions about whether women, people of color, religious minorities, immigrants would ever be treated with dignity and respect. and by the way, we were furious about the past presidential election of a man whose presidency would eventually end in disgrace with his impeachment for obstruction of
