Without mentioning his name, President Obama used a commencement address to take pot-shots at Donald Trump.

“The world is more interconnected than ever before, and it’s becoming more connected every day,” he told the Rutgers University class of 2016. “Building walls won’t change that.”

Each time the president made an obvious slam to the presumptive Republican presidential nominee, the students loudly cheered.

“Facts, evidence, reason, logic, an understanding of science — these are good things,” Obama said with a slight grin. “The class of 2016, let me be as clear as I can be. In politics and in life, ignorance is not a virtue.”

Obama continued on that note.

“It’s not cool to not know that you’re talking about,” he said. “That’s not keeping it real or telling it like it is. That’s not challenging political correctness. Facts and evidence matter.”
