Inconsequential politicians can't help themselves. They think they are telling a story to preschoolers who will accept what they hear.

Missed in this is the fact that he says he "walked" at graduation, meaning he expected to complete requirements later. Soon, even. But did not. So he put on a graduation cap and gown and actually walked in a graduation ceremony with no intent to follow through on his obligation to complete classes.
