History was made on July 28, and her name is Hillary Clinton. The newly-minted Democratic nominee told the watching world just what America’s future with a female president will be like — and how there may not BE a future if Donald Trump is in charge!
Hillary Clinton, 68, stood victorious in white onstage at the Democratic National Convention on July 28, and gave her rousing victory speech after officially accepting the party’s nomination. Her impassioned speech gave firm ideas for her presidential platform, her hopes for the next four years, and just aout anything else you could ask out of an acceptance speech. Oh yeah, and she dunked on Republican nominee Donald Trump, 70, hard! CLICK HERE TO READ HER FULL SPEECH
You didn’t think Hillary was going to make it to her victory lap without rubbing Trump’s face in it, right? This was a historic night, not just for Hillary, not just for the Democrats, but for the entire world. Hillary’s stunning speech was as much about herself and her ideals as it was trying to warn the national about Trump. Hillary laid it out simply:
“Ask yourself: Does Donald Trump have the temperament to be Commander-in-Chief? Donald Trump can’t even handle the rough-and-tumble of a presidential campaign. He loses his cool at the slightest provocation. When he’s gotten a tough question from a reporter. When he’s challenged in a debate. When he sees a protestor at a rally. Imagine him in the Oval Office facing a real crisis. A man you can bait with a tweet is not a man we can trust with nuclear weapons.”
This may have been the best speech that Hillary has ever given. You may remember that the previous week, Trump shouted out a rambling, hate-filled speech with pointed jabs full of his usual suspects: he’s going to build a wall, ban all muslims, make America great again, etc. Hillary took umbrage with that, and pointed out his weaknesses while driving home her own. “Last week, Trump spoke for 70-odd minutes…and I mean odd,” Hillary said, as the convention burst into laughter — and that counts doubly for Bill Clinton. She made a promise in her speech that she wouldn’t back down from bullies like Trump who stand in her path to success.
“More than a few times, I’ve had to pick myself up and get back in the game. Like so much else, I got this from my mother,” Hillary said. “She never let me back down from any challenge. When I tried to hide from a neighborhood bully, she literally blocked the door. ‘Go back out there,’ she said. And she was right. You have to stand up to bullies. You have to keep working to make things better, even when the odds are long and the opposition is fierce.”
