Who says Germans are dull and boring?
Harvard grads laugh and cheer as German Chancellor Angela Merkel
tells her story -
Without ever mentioning the U.S. leader by name, the German chancellor
checked off a list of policy issues where she has clashed with Trump --
from trade, to immigration and climate change -- that left her audience
in no doubt as to whom she might mean.
When she called on the students and university alumni to "tear down
walls" they rose to their feet -- Trump’s 2016 battle cry, of course,
was to "build the wall" to keep out immigrants coming across the border
“Tear down walls of ignorance and narrow-mindedness, for nothing has
to stay as it is,” Merkel said in a speech that drew from her own
experience of life behind the Berlin Wall to argue that positive change
Yet she also warned of the damage done to public life when people
treat "lies as truth and truth as lies" and suggested it’s better to
stop and think before acting on "first impulses" -- comments that
prompted cheers and laughter.
Oh, what a lovely speech, don't you think?
