Trump rips ‘failed’ critics in combative graduation speech

A feisty President Trump lashed out at Washington naysayers with a combative commencement speech Saturday.
The address at Liberty University in Lynchburg, Va., sounded like a personal pep talk after a week of withering criticism following the firing of FBI Director James Comey.
In my short time in Washington, I’ve seen firsthand how the system is broken,” he told a cheering crowd of 50,000 at the evangelical institution.
He complained of “a small group of failed voices who think they know everything and want to tell everybody else how to live, what to do, and how to think.”
“But we don’t need a lecture from Washington on how to lead our lives,” he said.
