Hillary Clinton returned to Yale University this weekend, warning the graduating class of the "tumultuous times" that await them—and then using the school's tradition of over-the-top headwear to rib President Trump with her own unusual hat: a Russian fur cap. The audience laughed as she said, "If you can't beat them, join them," reports the AP. She also emphasized resilience in the face of failure, notes CNBC. "Everyone gets knocked down, what matters is whether you get up and keep going," Clinton said. "This may be hard for a group of Yale soon-to-be graduates to accept, but yes, you will make mistakes in life, you will even fail, it happens to all of us no matter how qualified and capable we are. Take it from me." Clinton delivered her address at Yale's Class Day, celebrated the Sunday before degrees are handed out. (More Hillary Clinton stories.)
