Bill Maher spoke at the University of California, Berkeley’s winter commencement ceremony on Saturday, despite months of student protests urging the university to drop the comedian for his Islamophobic statements. In his 15-minute speech, he mostly stayed on the topics of environmental activism and preparing for the adult world.
“We need a place to live. We’re humans,” Maher said. “We need a crib! And the world desperately needs a generation — your generation — to make this a priority the way the Vietnam generation, on this very campus, made stopping that war a priority.”
