The actress did not hold back on her opinions of the current POTUS.
Mindy Kaling was asked to provide the commencement speech for the graduates of Dartmouth College in Hanover, NH, on Sunday. The 38-year-old comedienne and actress, whose latest film Ocean's 8 debuted in the top spot at the box office this past weekend, took an opportunity to poke fun of the nation's current Commander in Chief, Donald Trump.
The sitcom star humorously notes how the president may have "tweeted us into war" with Wakanda, the fictional nation present in the film and comic book series Black Panther. Elsewhere, The Mindy Project creator revealed how she can relate to Trump on a subatomic level. "I’ll tell you my secret, the one thing that keeps me going, my superpower: delusion. This is something I share with the president, a fact that is both horrifying and interesting."
Moreover, Kaling remarked how Trump's stint in the Oval Office is a testament to how far an individual can go when they possess an indelible ego, encouraging the graduates to nurture an "insane confidence" in themselves, even if it is completely fabricated.
Kaling graduated from Dartmouth College back in 2001, allowing her academic tenure within the accredited Ivy League school to inform certain aspects of her comedic writing skills.
