A Harvard graduate student, Emma Heussner is making rounds on the internet after her video went viral on Sunday showing her walking out of Attorney General Merrick Garland’s commencement speech.
Heussner made a Twitter video post that read: “just walked out of Harvard’s graduation because I didn’t want to listen to Merrick Garland talk about himself for 30 minutes,” but what she did hear was “pretty rich.” And shows her walking out of the place where Garland was giving his speech.

The WOKE speech included comments derogatory comments about the January 6th Capitol Protests, and critiquing the Biden regime’s voters who believe that the 2020 elections were illegitimate. According to a Washington Post report, Garland also pleaded with the young Harvard graduates that they should embrace public service for at least a year in their lives. Claiming that recent mass shootings like that in Texas, and New York were “good enough reasons for the students to serve their nation”
This viral video received an overwhelmingly positive response on Twitter. “The amount of of support in the replies has been very warm and I was shocked by how many people congratulated me and were proud of my decision,” Hessner told the Daily Caller, where she is also working as a Social Media Director. “It’s also been funny to watch leftists lose their minds and hurl insults at me for walking out. It’s entertaining to see how easily upset some people are by the actions of others.” She added.
This also reveals the hypocrisy of the woke left that has historically supported football fans mocking President Trump, and were completely in support of unhinged protests who flipped out the former president and expressed their outrage during public events.
“I had been sitting there for more than two hours listening to people speak in Latin, give cordial formalities. By the time Merrick Garland got on stage, I was so anxious to leave and meet up with my parents. They’re the ones who helped me accomplish what I have and supported me to get to Harvard in the first place.” Hessner added.
“Choosing to walk out was an easy decision for me,” she continued.
Hessner claims that she made this decision to walk out after hearing a part of Garland’s speech: “Even overhearing his speech as I walked out, it was pretty rich to hear about how ‘awful’ our country is and what we as graduates should do about it, given that he’s the one in an incredible position of power to who gets immediate results from the decisions he makes.”
