Puh-leeze. Can it really be that since you and I last chatted just four days ago, the Democrats have added a second email fiasco to the Clinton server fracas?
And that it’s apparently state-sponsored Russian hackers promoting a Putin-Trump bromance who stole 20,000 emails from the Democratic National Committee and timed their release to throw Democrats’ Philadelphia convention into chaos?
Here are what ABC News says are the four emails most damaging to the DNC, which was supposed to be neutral during the Clinton-Sanders race but apparently wanted to help Clinton.
And so we saw Sanders’ own supporters booing him on Monday afternoon, when he urged them to support Clinton.
Democrats talk about the critical need to keep Trump away from the nuclear codes.
Yet, if Sanders’ supporters don’t back Clinton, Trump could win the election.
So — how did Sanders and other Democrats do on Monday night as they sought to unite the party and detail the Trump threat?
“For Clinton, Sanders could not have given a more appealing speech,” says Dan Balz of The Washington Post. Going through what he called the critical issues of the election, Sanders said: “By these measures, any objective observer will conclude that — based on her ideas and her leadership — Hillary Clinton must become the next president of the United States. The choice is not even close.”
Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren, who has been a target of Trump and gives back as good as she gets, said he has “no plans to make anything great for anyone, except rich guys like Donald Trump.”
But the award for best speech is widely seen as going to First Lady Michelle Obama, who was “strikingly positive” yet laid out the risks of a Trump win without mentioning his name, says The New York Times.
