Texas Rep. Dan Crenshaw, a Republican, delivered a hard-nosed graduation speech telling students to 'embrace hardship' amid the novel coronavirus pandemic

“Instead of graduation pictures you get, well,and toilet paper memes with a Zoom prom, if you’re lucky,” Crenshaw said in the video before transitioning his virtual commencement speech into a rally for students to push through the pandemic and use it to inspire them to become better people.

Crenshaw's remarks were in contrast to the kindlier inspirational language others have tended to use for their own addresses. Instead, the lawmaker used his experiences as a military veteran and his late mother's cancer diagnosis to draw sharp comparisons to what students are going through now. "You want to learn a new perspective?" Crenshaw said in his Tuesday speech. "Well, try losing an eye. I don't mean a new sense of depth perception — I mean real perspective."Obama Gives Commencement Speeches to Coronavirus Class of 2020: 'The World Is Turned Upside Down'

Push to Build Border Wall Accelerates in Texas Despite Coronavirus PandemicSince March, the government has filed 24 federal cases against South Texas landowners for the border wall, more than the previous eight months combined. In 3 years, Trump's built a grand total of 3 miles of new wall where none existed previously. That's it. 167 miles of rehabbed wall that is just as easy to scale and cut as the prior wall/barrier. It's a waste of federal resources, and value signals to his bigoted base. they probably voted for the man child When the fuck are the Chinese going to buy my pork and soybeans is the more important question.
