Swag! President Barack Obama received his honorary Rutgers degree yesterday (May 15) in New Brunswick, N.J., and he delivered one hell of a commencement speech. And, thanks to my brother graduating and receiving his degree in Psych, I had the honor of also seeing the POTUS! I loved every minute of Obama's 30+ minute keynote address ... from his advice on building a better future to his indirect remarks about Donald Trump: "In politics and in life, ignorance is not a virtue. It's not cool to not know what you're talking about" BOOM!

And, I loved his jokes as well as the Jersey shoutouts, including the notorious Rutgers grease trucks: "... mozzarella sticks and chicken fingers on your cheese steaks ... I am sure Michelle would approve." Check out Obama's full commencement speech below:
