Guess who’s back? Back again. DNC’s back, tell a friend….
Last night was day three of the Democratic National Convention in the city of Brotherly Love. And pretty much for the first time in the three nights there, they said the name of the boogeyman. No, not the creature under your kid’s bed or the WWE wrestler that used to eat worms and smash clocks. Someone scarier. Donald Trump!
Tim Kaine, vice president nominee of the party, openly mocked Trump. Maybe it was stooping a little to his level, but he did bring up excellent points in what he said. After almost all of The Donald’s bold claims, he usually says “Believe me”. He went on to say ‘It’s hard to believe someone who hasn’t released his tax returns like every other candidate in the modern era. What’s Donald hiding?”
But Kaine was hardly the keynote speaker of the night. We also saw current Vice President Joe Biden deliver a 12 minute speech where again, he mentioned Trump by name. It was clear the Democrats were tired of walking on egg shells last night.
Michael Bloomberg spoke too. He’s the former Mayor of New York City and has had more personal accounts with Trump than anyone else on the stage over the last three nights. And the picture he painted of what a Trump presidency would look like was not a good one. It was more like a finger painting than a masterpiece.
There was one more big speaker…. I can’t remember what his name was…. I think he’s been busy the last eight years…. oh yeah President Obama. His speech was clearly a passing of the torch moment to Hillary, while still also getting shots at you know who. Obama made it clear, there’s no one more qualified to be President. Not me. Not Bill (First Dude!) Not Nobody. But Hillary Clinton. Then she came on stage for a moment at the end of his speech. They joined hands and walked off together.
She appeared in a video two nights ago, she was on stage last night. And tonight, we will get the speech from Hillary Clinton where she will say “I suppose I will accept this nomination. I got nothing better to do.”
I personally have something better to do than cover the DNC, but I’m 3/4 of the way there. I guess I can complete it. See you tomorrow!
