Day 4 Democratic National Convention

Day four of the Democratic National Convention is when the nominee accepts the nomination of their party for president.

This was Hillary Clinton’s day.  The first of the major speakers of the night were Jensen Walcott and Jake Reed, two teens who were fired from their pizza job in Kansas City after Walcott found out she was making 25 cents an hour less than her male friend (Reed) who was hired the same day as her.

Then Khizr Khan spoke very eloquently and poignantly about the nature of immigration and sacrifice.  With his wife Ghazala Khan standing by his side, Khan expressed the rage felt by many bereaved parents and frustrated Muslim Americans who hear the rhetoric of Donald Trump.

This speech has garnered more media attention than Hillary’s actual speech at this convention.  Trump proceeded to insult Ghazala and Khizr Khan on TV and Twitter, causing the outrage of Veteran’s groups and other prominent Republicans.  This will be important in the coming weeks.

After the Khan speech, Chelsea Clinton, like Ivanka Trump before, introduced her mother.  Chelsea’s job seems to be the same as Ivanka’s: to humanize the campaign.  Chelsea shows her mother as a grandmother and a mother who will listen to her, her grandaughter and the rest of the American people.  Chelsea even fired back at Ivanka asking how her father would help women and the pay gap.

After Chelsea’s introduction, her mother came out and accepted the nomination for president.  In her speech she said, “Standing here as my mother’s daughter, and my daughter’s mother, I’m so happy this day has come,” Clinton said. “Happy for grandmothers and little girls and everyone in between. Happy for boys and men, too – because when any barrier falls in America, for anyone, it clears the way for everyone.”

Hillary’s speech made it clear the direction the Democrats are going to go against Trump.  They will say he doesn’t have the temperament to be president, and one who can be baited with tweets doesn’t deserve the nuclear launch codes.

Honestly, what was the most exciting part about the end of the Democratic National Convention was Bill Clinton’s face seeing balloons.
