Hillary Clinton declared that there was a “crisis in our democracy” in a speech on Friday as she received a medal from Harvard University for her service to the country.

Clinton, who has frequently given a dour appraisal of America’s current political and social reality, was given the Radcliffe Medal, which honors those who have had a “transformative impact on society.”

Organizers said they chose Clinton because the former secretary of state was a human rights champion, as well as a “skilled legislator” and an “advocate of American leadership” on the world stage.

In her remarks, she did not mention President Trump by name, but took some not-so-veiled swipes at the White House — talking about leaders who seek to polarize the nation, delegitimize news outlets and also spread fake news.

“Attempting to erase the line between fact and fiction, truth and reality is a core feature of authoritarianism,” she said.

As in previous speeches, Clinton painted a grim outlook for America’s current state and she has made no secret of her opposition to what her 2016 opponent is doing.
