    Matt Damon tells MIT graduates to 'face the world's problems'

    There’s “more at stake today than any story ever told,” Matt Damon declared during his commencement speech at MIT on Friday.

    Noting his current fascination with simulation theory, which hypothesizes multiple realities, the Hollywood actor asked, “How come we have to be in the one where Donald Trump becomes the Republican nominee?”

    He also took vague jabs at bankers.

    “Let me say this to the bankers — specifically the ones that brought you the biggest heist in history,” Damon scolded. “It was theft, and you knew it. It was fraud, and you knew it. And you know what else? We know that you knew it.”

    “I don’t know if justice is coming for you in this life or the next,” he continued. “But if it does come in this life, her name will be Elizabeth Warren.”

    The college drop-out and entertainer also warned Britain not to leave the European Union. Damon called it an “insane idea that the best path for Britain is to cut loose from Europe and drift out to sea.”

    Bill Clinton is responsible for the banking collapse and Matt will never say that fact.

    Go get them guns so people cannot defend themselves, Matt.

    Dude reads lines in front of a camera, so this gives him the right to comment on everything?

    Guaranteed he knows 5% of what Brexit is actually about

    I heard from a very reliable source that Robin Williams killed himself because this asshole wouldn't stop calling him.

    What he said about bankers: It's true regardless of how he puts food on the table.

    Jay-sus man, Bill Clinton again. For the love of all that is sacred and profane, that's like saying Al Capone shouldn't have been blamed for being a blood simple psychopath because, you know, he didn't pass Prohibition.

    And that's a bad analogy, because at least Capone went to prison for something. The bankers fucked us all like Popeye (Faulkner's, not Segar's) in a corn crib and you free market worshippers refuse to admit any admitted "Capitalist!" did anything deserving of a public execution. Dante put those people lower than murderers, because they seek to destroy communities, just not persons. They should all dance in the air, but no, reasons reasons Bill Clinton reasons reasons free market reasons.

    I'm kind of with you on the gun thing though.

    He knows that England leaving the European Union doesn't mean that it's physically leaving the European Union, right?

    Why do these Hillary supporters use college commencement speeches to campaign for her? If that was my commencement, I'd boo the fuck out of them

    The E.U. is a failure. The stronger economies are dragged down by the Greeces and Spains of Europe.

    Exactly. England would be stupid to not get out, especially if Turkey joins.

    Shut up dummy. Matt Damon is a hypocrite. I have an idea....you and your know it all friends in Hollywood give away 50% of your net earnings to the communities you feel are so oppressed. For every movie these fucking tards make they should have to post earnings of all cast and crew that worked to make their shitty film. Talk about income inequality!!!! He needs to be punched in his face.

    Being able to memorizing your Biology 101 textbook doesn't mean you have any particularly worthwhile social insight or political opinions.
