Hillary Clinton owned the spotlight during the last night of the DNC, and she also owned Donald Trump’s claim that he alone can ‘fix’ America’s problems. While speaking on July 28, Hillary reminded a forgetful Trump that in America, ‘we fix it together!’
“Don’t let anyone tell you our country is week. We’re not. Don’t let anyone tell you we don’t have what it takes. We do. Most of all — don’t believe anyone who says ‘I alone can fix it,’” Hillary Clinton, 68, said as she stood on stage at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, in her first major speech since becoming the Democratic Party’s nominee for the 2016 President election.
“Yes, those were actually Donald’s Trump words,” she said. “They should set off alarm bells for everyone. Really? ‘I alone can fix it.’ Is he forgetting troops on the front line? Police and firefighters who run towards danger? Doctors and nurses that care for us? Teachers who change Lives? Entrepreneurs who see possibilities in every problem. Mothers who lost children to violence who are building a movement to keep other kids safe?”
Hillary ended her slam on Donald’s claims, reminding him that it’s not “I” but “We in “We the people.” Addressing the GOP’s candidate directly, she said, “Americans don’t say ‘I alone can fix it.’ We say ‘We will fix it together!’’
She also took a jab at Donald’s marathon Republican National Convention speech, saying “he spoke for 70 odd minutes — and I do mean odd. And he offered zero solutions” While Donald spoke of no real ideas, she reminded voters how she “loves to talk about my plans.” Sly one there, Hillary

Hillary was the last speaker at a historic convention that saw a major American political party nominate a woman as their presidential candidate. The four days in Philly also saw a plethora of powerful speeches. President Barack Obama, 54, gushed over Hillary, saying that she’s more qualified to run the country than him or even Bill Clinton, 69!
Bill certainly had plenty to say about his wife and former New York senator. While detailing all her major accomplishments – from fighting for social justice in the south to helping 9/11 first responders in the Senate to helping reduce the number of nuclear weapons in the world – Bill also marveled at the love of his life and how she’ll make a great president.
Of course, one person who doesn’t share the presidents’ thoughts is Donald Trump, 70. Donald has continued to attack Hillary over her email server scandal, even inviting Russian hackers to break into her private account and access the information. Donald says these comments were “sarcastic,” according to CNN, but he certainly fooled everyone. It’s almost seems like it’s hard to tell when the Republican Party’s candidate for the 2016 Presidential election is being sincere and when he’s just blowing off steam. Huh.
What did you think about Hillary’s speech at the DNC, HollywoodLifers? Do you think you’ll vote for her in the November election?
