Hillary Rodham Clinton became the first woman to accept a major party’s presidential nomination on Thursday night, and didn't waste much time drawing a stark comparison between her and Donald Trump's vision of America.
July 28, 2016

Hillary Clinton gave the DNC's presidential acceptance speech tonight in Philadelphia, to become the first women in history to accept a major party’s presidential nomination.

I'm really burnt so I'll just say, she started out slow, then after she accepted the presidential nomination, seemed to relax and then worked into a good groove and finished strong.

She spent time wooing the Bernie Sanders supporters many times throughout and and vowed to work with him to make the new party platform realized.

But she also spent time eviscerating Donald Trump. She said, "He spoke for 70-odd minutes – and I do mean odd. And he offered zero solutions."

That was about right.

And then she spent some time explaining why Trump is so dangerous for our national security.

She said, "Now Donald Trump says, and this is a quote, “I know more about ISIS than the generals do….”No, Donald, you don't.

"He thinks that he knows more than our military because he claimed our armed forces are “a disaster.”

"Well, I've had the privilege to work closely with our troops and our veterans for many years, including as a Senator on the Armed Services Committee. I know how wrong he is. Our military is a national treasure. We entrust our commander-in-chief to make the hardest decisions our nation faces. Decisions about war and peace. Life and death."

"A president should respect the men and women who risk their lives to serve our country – including the sons of Tim Kaine and Mike Pence, both Marines."

Ask yourself: Does Donald Trump have the temperament to be Commander-in-Chief? Donald Trump can't even handle the rough-and-tumble of a presidential campaign. He loses his cool at the slightest provocation. When he's gotten a tough question from a reporter. When he's challenged in a debate. When he sees a protestor at a rally. Imagine him in the Oval Office facing a real crisis. A man you can bait with a tweet is not a man we can trust with nuclear weapons.

Here's the full transcript of her momentous speech.

And Twitter took no time to pass the message on to the short fingered vulgarian:
