Maybe our country wouldn’t be so divided if people didn’t use college commencement addresses to pimp their political agenda and speak in a foreign language. Crazy thought, huh? It’s people like this who are making Trump’s case for him.
The audience at California State University, Fullerton, booed the commencement speaker after she spoke about preemptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump and gave part of her speech in Spanish.
“It’s really sad,” anchor for Univision Maria Elena Salinas told the Washington Post about speaking to the College of Communications. “And it’s a testament to what has happened in our country. Our country is really divided.”
According to Denise De La Cruz, a graduating senior, the speech “was well-received until it became a little too Latino-centric for some and blatantly anti-Trump.”
Cruz said some audience members started shouting “What about us?!” when Salinas began speaking in Spanish.
When Salinas offered advice about rebutting political figures such as Trump, the crowd yelled “Get off the stage!” and “Trash!” according to De La Cruz.
“What I have seen on Twitter is really going out of control,” Salinas said Tuesday.
Yeah, she’s the victim here.
