A woman who attended Harvard’s commencement ceremony this past Sunday after earning a master’s degree in psychology from the school couldn’t bear to sit through the entire commencement address delivered by Attorney General Merrick Garland — and walked out while he was still speaking.
Emma Heussner is based in Washington, D.C., and today works in social media at The Daily Caller.
Garland brought up January 6th during his commencement address.
Garland’s commencement speech for the 2020 and 2021 graduates referenced the events of Jan 6 at the Capitol and questions over the integrity of the 2020 election, according to the Washington Post. He also pleaded with the graduates to embrace public service for at least a portion of their lives, claiming that the recent mass shootings in Texas, California, and New York were good enough reasons for the students to serve their nation.
Since the walkout, she has gained thousands of Twitter followers. She started with about 1,000 followers and now has over 12,500.
