Celebrities are reacting to Hillary Clinton’s 2017 commencement speech to the graduating class of her alma mater, Wellesley College. See Hollywood stars’ tweets below.

The former presidential candidate used her address on Friday to talk about the current state of politics and take few digs at President Donald Trump, without actually mentioning him by name. She called the president’s new budget proposal “an attack of unimaginable cruelty on the most vulnerable among us,” and made allusions between Trump and former President Richard Nixon, who took office the same year she graduated from the school in 1969. Clinton also discussed losing the 2016 presidential election, the fake news epidemic, and offered many words of encouragement to the students.

One celebrity reacting to the speech on Twitter is Rosie O’Donnell, who tweeted, “Yes @HillaryClinton – nasty woman – you are a true leader. thank you for being you – for speaking at #Wellesley2017 – women rise #resist.” Arsenio Hall said, “Crooked Hillary is ripping Crooked Donald a new one, at Wellesley in her commencement speech!” Katie Couric cited Clinton telling the graduates, “Everyone is entitled to his own opinion but not his own facts.” And Tyler Oakley expressed, “Still can’t believe hillary didn’t win tbh.”

Meanwhile, Bill Clinton supported his wife by tweeting, “What a great speech. @HillaryClinton will never stop believing in—and fighting for—truth and reason.” And Chelsea Clinton wrote, “I am so proud of my mom & very grateful, every day, to be her daughter.” Gossip Cop will update as more celebrities react to Clinton’s Wellesley College commencement speech, which you can watch in the video below!
