Hillary Clinton gave a scathing economic speech in Columbus, OH. today, against Donald Trump's shadowed economic polices and his failed business practices that ultimately hurt average Americans.

Clinton equated a Trump presidency with Donald having the nuclear codes to his business life when she said, "You might think that because he has spent his life as a businessman, he'd be better prepared to handle the economy. Well, it turns out, he's dangerous there, too. Just like he shouldn't have his finger on the button, he shouldn't have his hands on our economy."

Then she hit him on all of his failed business endeavors that resulted in lawsuits and Chapter 11's, when she said, "He's written a lot of books about business. They all seem to end at Chapter 11."

Stupid, and Clinton took care of his debt fetish in the speech too.

And finally, the Trump campaign said that, if worst came to worst, we could just sell off America’s assets. Really? Even if we sold all our aircraft carriers and the Statue of Liberty – even if we let some billionaire turn Yosemite into a private country club – we still wouldn’t even get close. That’s how much debt he’d run up.

During the speech Trump took to Twitter with a classically terrible tweet.

Clinton had a response to that, too. "Every day, we see how reckless and careless Trump is. He’s proud of it. Well – that’s his choice," she admonished, "Except when he’s asking to be our President. Then it’s our choice."

Yep, it sure is.
