Notre Dame Student: Why She Walked Out On Mike Pence Commencement Speech

14 minutes ago

Last Sunday, a video went viral during Mike Pence’s commencement speech at the University of Notre Dame in Indiana but it didn’t center on the U.S. Vice President speaking, but on the large group of about 150 graduates walking out during his address.

Although it might seem like a spur-of-the-moment effort against the VP, the walkout was actually organized by students in the weeks beforehand. Once graduates found out that Pence would be the speaker at their ceremony, a group of students planned out the moment carefully while answering whatever questions any concerned students might have.

Priyanka Chopra is hoping her friend Meghan Markle will marry Prince Harry.

But she’s not laying on any put-a-ring-on-it pressure when the two chat.

“No pressure,” she said during a visit to The Wendy Williams Show. “High profile relationships are so stressful anyway, so as a friend I wouldn’t like to add on that at all.”

But even with her high profile relationship, Chopra says that Markle has been pretty anxiety-free.

“We talk about more my stress than hers,” she says. “She doesn’t seem to have any right now.”
