Hillary Clinton repeatedly tweaks Trump during a college commencement addressHillary Clinton delivered the commencement address at her alma mater, Wellesley College, Friday, 48 years after she was the school’s first-ever student commencement speaker when she graduated in 1969.

"There's a real threat -- numerous threats against aviation," Kelly told the Fox News Sunday program when asked about the likelihood a wide-reaching ban on large electronics in airplane cabins could be imposed. Terrorists are "obsessed" with the idea of "knocking down an airplane in flight -- particularly a US carrier, if it's full of mostly US folks," the homeland security chief said.
