Mike Pence hit by student walk-out at Notre Dame graduation

Mike Pence hit by student walk-out at Notre Dame graduation

In his remarks at the IN university, the vice president criticized what he called campus "safe spaces" and urged students not to suppress free speech.

"The idea that he was completely and wholly ignorant makes him also unfit to succeed Donald Trump even if Congress did have a mind to impeach him", Reid said on "Hardball".

"People follow people they respect so first and foremost you must aspire to be men and women of character", said Pence.

Now, Pence has told the graduating class from Grove College to expect both honor and opposition as they pursue their dreams. "He has advocated and voted repeatedly to restrict and/or to remove rights of LGBT individuals". "And as a result, it will focus attention, once more, on Notre Dame". He has expressed views that are totally without merit such as, 'Being gay is a choice.' ...

The vice president is scheduled to speak at the University of Notre Dame where a protest against him is also planned Sunday, and at the U.S. Naval Academy on Friday.

A co-organizer of the protest, Luis Miranda, told CNN that he and his fellow students believe Pence's policies target vulnerable and marginalized populations in the United States due to their sexual orientation, religion, and ethnicity, and that these are not values that the Catholic university should be celebrating. The state and local organizations involved in these protests include We Go High!, South Bend Equality, and Michiana Alliance for Democracy.

But such whispers are cringe-worthy for Pence and his aides, who have made an art of not upstaging the mercurial president.

"We are asked to believe Mike Pence, the head of the transition team, heard this confession and the warnings about Flynn from the then-acting attorney general with his index fingers stuck firmly in his little lamb ears", she wrote. While Trump is away on his first foreign trip, Pence will be addressing graduates at a Pennsylvania Christian college and at Notre Dame while working on budget and policy issues in Washington.

Other protesters near campus plan on joining in. "By exercising our right to peaceably assemble on public land in front of the University, we hope to draw attention to Pence's failed policies, destructive ideology and abysmal legacy".

Ricketts also said the university administration has not resisted their protest.

The audience at the commencement greeted Pence warmly and the boos appear directed at those walking out, not the vice president.

"I think people need to remember that the vice president, Mike Pence, was head of Trump's transition when Michael Flynn, for example, was hired", Wyden said.

McNulty acknowledged that some alumni and students do not agree with Pence's invitation.

"I think it's a disgrace", said Nataline Duffy, who was in attendance with her husband Thomas from New Jersey to watch their son graduate.
