Hillary blasts 'bigot' Trump for 'dividing' the country; tells Bill 'we're still going strong despite the hard times' and insists the U.S. can be 'greater than ever'

Hillary Clinton said at tonight's Democratic National Convention and that the upcoming election is a 'moment of reckoning'

  • Hillary Clinton delivered a 55-minute speech in Philadelphia as she accepted the Democratic presidential nomination
  • She blasted Republican rival Donald Trump, targeting his campaign slogan, business practices and even taunted him into attacking her on Twitter
  • She touched on the most embarrassing and personal aspects of her public profile, including the 'hard times' that tested her and husband ex-president Bill Clinton who infamously cheated on her in the Oval Office

Hillary Clinton had a message for Donald Trump on Thursday evening as she accepted the Democratic party's nomination for president: Game on.

She mocked his campaign slogan. She blasted his business practices. She even tried to taunt him into attacking her on Twitter - a strategy that appeared to work, with Trump sending out a series of tweets assailing her soon after.

He wants to be commander in chief but 'Donald Trump can't even handle the rough and tumble of a presidential campaign. He loses his cool at the slightest provocation,' she said. 'A man you can bait with a tweet is not a man we can trust with nuclear weapons,' she said as the audience cheered loudly. 

Trump has 'taken the Republican Party a long way,' she said, 'from "Morning in America" to "Midnight in America."'

'He wants us to fear the future and fear each other,' she said, declaring that the country is at a 'moment of reckoning.

The former first lady who lost out on the Democratic nomination eight years ago had to deliver a speech that would redefine her 20-year political career and reserve her place in history as the first woman president. 

She held little back, touching on even the most embarrassing and personal aspects of her public profile, including the 'hard times' that tested she and her husband, ex-President Bill Clinton, who infamously cheated on her with an intern Monica Lewinsky in the Oval Office.

Clinton also attempted to extend an olive branch to Democratic socialist Bernie Sanders' supporters, telling them, 'I've heard you...your cause is our cause.' She was most certainly hearing them, but the losing candidate's delegates weren't hearing her.  

They took turns heckling Clinton throughout the entirety of her 55-minute speech in spite of a pointed reference to a free tuition plan she modeled off the senator's. 

'Bernie Sanders and I will work together to make college tuition-free for the middle class and debt-free for all!' she said, her second reference to him in the speech.

In the thank you section of the remarks she also mentioned him. 'Bernie, your campaign inspired millions of Americans, particularly the young people who threw their hearts and souls into our primary. You put economic and social justice issues front and center, where they belong. '

To his supporters she said, 'Our country needs your ideas, energy, and passion. That is the only way we can turn our progressive platform into real change for America. We wrote it together. Now let’s go out and make it happen together.'

In the national address that rivaled one of her husband's legendarily long orations, Clinton a millionaire, went after Trump, a billionaire, as an elitist who is out of step with and takes advantage of hard working Americans. 

'In Atlantic City, 60 miles from here, you'll find contractors and small businesses who lost everything because Donald Trump refused to pay his bills,' she said from a Philadelphia sports arena. 'People who did the work and needed the money, and didn't get it – not because he couldn't pay them, but because he wouldn't pay them.'

'He just stiffed them,' she said  

Hitting him where she knew it would hurt most, she said, 'That sales pitch he's making to be your president? Put your faith in him – and you'll win big? That's the same sales pitch he made to all those small businesses.'

Then he 'walked away,'' she said, 'and left working people holding the bag.'

'What part of America first leads him to make Trump ties in China, not Colorado. Trump suits in Mexico, not Michigan. Trump furniture in Turkey, not Ohio. Trump picture frames in India, not Wisconsin,' she said. 'Donald Trump says he wants to make America great again. He could start by actually making things in America again.'

Mr1Strokes I applaud your post. Good post. I don't believe in infringing on anyone's right or will but we, we who knows and aware of the things taking place in this nation, have to infringed upon that right sometimes because voters of both parties do not have the slightest clue why they are voting but are only voting for the simple fact that, as you stated, they were told to do so. People don't understand that they had and have been used as spawns and pawns to embolden and empower a legion of evil-doers who careless about them.

I used to associated myself to the Democratic Party, but my eyes has been opened. After understanding the depth of this Party, what it stood for and what it did particular the denigration and furtherance of the black people, I as a black man and as a child of Jesus could no longer associate myself to such filth. I am not saying the Republicans are any better because they are just as evil. What I am pontificating is that they are a party that do not share my core beliefs and principles pertaining to morality. I just wanted to share that part....but what I really wanted to elaborate on, you have expounded on a little and I think that's sufficient. You went into the economics of things which are true and you touched on a little about Hillary. What People really need to research first is what the Democratic Party is about then Hillary's agendas. Since many are too lackadaisical to knowledge themselves let me give them a brief insight. Back in the 60's when Martin Luther King was petitioning for civil rights, the biggest opposition he faced was the Democratic Party who insist that blacks has no rights. Kennedy along with his constituents, blocked every move that would allowed civil rights. It's after Linden B Johnson took house after his predecessor, Kennedy, he went to his constituents and said to them that they are making a big mistake of not allowing the civil rights of blacks. He told his constituents/administration that they can own and let the black man vote Democrat a hundred years if they do things making him (blacks) dependent upon them. That's is why they enacted the welfare program that King was so against. That was why civil rights was signed in to law. That is why the Democratic Party do all these things to attracts blacks and Latinos to their party because they are a party that give hand outs and freebies. If it wasn't for time constraint I would have delve a little deeper. But do your research people. The answer is out there.

Hello  Bernie supporters,  great job and it is time to vote for hillary.   Keep in mind no one that I know has a super clean past or has not made bad decisions.  Life should be about trying to get better with the decision that are made.  With Hillary you have a chance to get some of your issues on the table, with Trump you with get ZERO of your issues considered ever.  If Bernie won some of Hillary issues would have been on the table.  It is a 20/80% in favor of the winner. Take the 20% and get the issues started and it will get better in years to come.   Trunp was never in any public servant office in his life and he want the top job with no experience.  NO even a assemblyman of councilman, and not a mayor or governer.  He will be coming after the Black people next and many are Muslims that come from a country that they are born into the religion and do not get to choose,  He just has not said it out loud.  He feels that if a Black Man( n-word) can be president that it must not be that difficult and he is smarter than any (N-Word) that he knows.  It is clear he is trying to CON people with fear and the truth racism that exist in this country.  Please get out and vote or register now and get ready to vote.  DO NO MAKE THE SAME MISTAKE THAT HAPPENED WITH GEORGE BUSH.  LETS MAKE THIS A LANDSLIDE AND SEND A MESSAGE TO TRUMP AND ANY FOOL  LIKE HIM>  LETS SEND TRUMP BACK INTO THE HOLE HE CRAWLED OUT FROM WITH SHAME ON HIS FACE>     VOTE.

Just to mention:   I am having Hip Replacement Surgery 10 day before and I will be on a Walker or Crutches to get to the voting polls.  So YOU HAVE NO EXCUSE.   DO NOT DROP THE BALL AGAIN.
