Bloomberg's speech was the most damning of all to Trump because...

They both are wealthy businessmen who appeal to Independents and Middle America. This coming from a Democrat is scoffed at. But this coming from an Independent is compelling and provocative. He destroyed #TraitorTrump tonight. Eviscerated him!

Listen to his speech again:

It's a scathing indictment! And it's more compelling coming from Bloomberg (a self-made man) who is well-positioned to speak on issues related to business and industry. And to reach Independents and maybe some corporate-leaning Republicans.

Angela Bassett and the entire South Carolina delegation are tearing my heart to pieces.

She introduced the only two living people.

How it became cool to hate Hillary Clinton...


PHILADELPHIA ― Donald Trump bragged not long ago that he could shoot someone dead on New York’s Fifth Avenue and his supporters would still love him.

The boast was meant to illustrate the loyalty of his fans. But if the Republican nominee truly wants to know how such a charge can affect a political career, he could just ask Hillary Clinton.

Murdering someone with a gun is just one of the things Clinton has been accused of over the years by her political opponents, who have attacked her for such things as profiting from insider information in the commodities market, enabling husband and former president Bill Clinton’s infidelities, and, more recently, mishandling the 2012 terrorist attack in Benghazi, Libya.

A quarter-century of drama involving the former first lady brings her to a remarkable threshold: on the doorstep of becoming the first female American president, despite being seen as a villain by a sizable segment of the population.

“There’s a narrative here, and it’s a real narrative, and she hasn’t dealt with it at all,” said David Winston, Republican pollster and former aide to Bill Clinton-era House Speaker Newt Gingrich (R-Ga.) “The challenge for her is the things that have happened recently that are feeding into an existing storyline.”

So ingrained is the anti-Hillary sentiment, crossing party and demographic lines, that even those too young to remember anything about Whitewater or “Troopergate” know it’s cool to dislike her -– even though they may not be quite sure why.

A private person by nature, Clinton responded through the years by throwing up even more barriers against outsiders, her supporters say, culminating in the decision that led her to use a private email server to handle her official communications as secretary of state. A November 2011 email to her top confidante stated it best: “I don’t want any risk of the personal being accessible.”
