President Obama Speaks at Notre Dame and Arizona State Controversy Ensues – Full Video

He was first scheduled to speak at Arizona State University, but then news came out that they would not be presenting him with an honorary degree, so Jon Stewart‘s The Daily Show did a great piece to suss out this story.

I’m posting the full video from both the Arizona State University and Notre Dame speeches below where you can see that even some people attending the commencements made their objections heard:
