Last night [Tuesday, July 27 the speakers at the DNC managed to maintain the momentum of the convention with the formal nomination of Hillary Clinton.
The night included several memorable speeches in regards to change and reform of pressing matters prevalent today in the United States. Here are a few major highlights from last night’s convention:
Former President Clinton giving credit where it’s due.
Bill Clinton approached his speech in a manner that was unique in comparison to the other guest speakers. He was able to share his personal life experiences with Hillary and practically told his entire life story with her. Bill Clinton depicted his wife as a hard worker determined to see change for the better in society. In fact, one of the most memorable lines of the night was spoken by Bill Clinton himself stating Hillary as the “best darn change-maker” he ever met in his entire life.
Black Lives Matter and Mothers Of The Movement.
Greeted by chants of “Black Lives Matter,” The Mothers of the Movement, consisting of mothers of the children who have died due to police brutality, have each made moving speeches to the audience of the convention encouraging them to vote for Hillary Clinton. Through their emotional and heartfelt statements, they informed the attendees that the most important matter was keeping their children safe and ended off by urging the attendees to vote for Clinton as she would help the gun control legislation.
Irked Bernie Supporters Storm Out the Convention.
Following the official nomination of Hillary Clinton, which Bernie Sanders confirmed to the convention, supporters of Sanders found themselves outraged. In response, they left the convention and decided to move to a media tent. The supporters even staged a protest simply by sitting in at one of the media centers and taping their mouths shut.
Surprise Visit By Hillary Clinton Herself.
Hillary Clinton wasn’t supposed to appear, but she made a visit on the big screen at the convention. In fact, her brief comments summed up the theme of the night. “I can’t believe we just put the biggest crack in that glass ceiling yet.” She also had an encouraging message for the little girls who stayed up to watch saying, “I may become the first woman president, but one of you is next.”
A Familiar Face Talks Trump.
With her show-stealing brooch, former Secretary of State, Madeleine Albright, discussed her suspicions on Trump and his relations with Vladimir Putin. Albright questioned Trump’s ability to run the nation and its foreign relations due to Trump’s respect for Putin’s leadership style. She suggested Russia and Putin are eager for Trump’s victory in the elections. The most interesting suggestion by Albright had to have been that Russia may have been responsible for the DNC email hacks.
The convention has yet to finish, with two days left. The headliners for today are just as worthy as those in the past two days, including President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden.
