First Lady Draws Sharp Portrait Of Trump, Without Naming Him

First Lady Draws Sharp Portrait Of Trump, Without Naming Him

Philadelphia (AP) Without mentioning Donald Trump by name, first lady Michelle Obama stood before the Democratic convention on Monday and drew a sharp sketch of the Republican nominee that stood in harsh contrast to her gauzy portrait of Hillary Clinton as a woman who has looked out for children and the disadvantaged all her life. Delivering a mother’s impassioned call to action, Mrs. Obama offered Clinton to the nation as a woman with a heart and as a future president who never “buckles under pressure” or takes the easy way out. Mrs. Obama told delegates and a national television audience that when she thinks of “the kind of president that I want for my girls and all children,” it’s someone who takes the job seriously — “someone who understands that the issues a president faces are not black and white and cannot be boiled down to 140 characters.” There was no mistaking the allusion to Trump, the perpetual tweeter. “Because when you have the nuclear codes at your fingertips and the

Mom: Warning Didn't Keep Slain Son Safe At Florida Nightclub

Mom: Warning Didn’t Keep Slain Son Safe At Florida Nightclub

Fort Myers, FL (AP) Stephanie White clutched a stack of photos while sitting in a chair in her home. The television was on, loud, and turned to the local news. A story came on about the mass shooting at a nightclub that took her baby’s life. “My son,” said White, tired and dejected Monday afternoon. She waved a hand at the television. “There’s another picture of him.” Her son was one of two teenagers killed early Monday at Club Blu, the latest in a string of mass shootings across the nation this summer. With the Orlando massacre at the Pulse nightclub still fresh on her mind, White had advised her 18-year-old on what to do if there was a shooting: “Hit the floor; find a table.” But when gunfire erupted in the parking lot of the Fort Myers club, 18-year-old Stef’an Strawder didn’t have anywhere to hide. He was killed along with a 14-year-old boy, and 17 people ranging in age from 12 to 27 were wounded during the swimsuit-themed party for teens. “I told him to look for all the exits if

History And Hostility As Clinton Ascends To Nomination

Philadelphia (AP) A glass ceiling is shattering at the Democratic National Convention as Hillary Clinton ascends to the presidential nomination with Tuesday’s roll call of the states, making her the first woman to lead a major party into a White House race. But as history is being made, hostility is being heard, too. Rhetorically, at least, die-hard Bernie Sanders’ supporters also are breaking some glass, loudly protesting his treatment by the party and still cold to Clinton even as Sanders appeals for Democrats to unify and defeat Republican Donald Trump, “a bully and a demagogue.” What was expected to be a tightly orchestrated convention, run with all the professionalism and experience that were lacking at Trump’s often-chaotic affair in Ohio, instead showed its rough edges in the early going, starting with chants of “Bernie” during the opening invocation and boos at numerous mentions of Clinton’s name. First lady Michelle Obama gave a heartfelt endorsement of the candidate who enga
