There was a lot that happened this week, so let's get started. Hillary Clinton accepted her parties nomination at the Democratic National Convention in a long-winded, rambling, scream fest were she accused Donald Trump of being a liar and a con. Well, that's pretty ironic wouldn't you say? Donald Trump has made such great sacrifices for our country and what has she done? During the 90's she secured young women for her husband to abuse, but she never had to do her own laundry, drive a car or even cook or clean her house. So entitled.
Meanwhile, during that period, Donald was struggling to get back on his feet after a devastating bankruptcy. He had to make great sacrifices, believe me! He had to suffer on a daily basis while people who had once been his employees or contractors called him and harassed him for money that he couldn't possibly pay. And after all he had done for them! Thankfully, he was able to get back on his feet and he even made more money. You would see more of his sacrifices if you could see his taxes, but unfortunately he's not able to show them to you. If you did see them, you'd be amazed at him and how he lives his life in quiet modesty; always serving his country. Why, even when that little George Stepenlopolous did that sneak attack interview with him recently, Donald told us that he is "popular with the veterans" which should prove his sacrifices, though again, he's very humble.
Anyway, I digress. Hillary won the nomination of her party through lies, intimidation, and even throwing her best friend and alleged lover, Debbie, under the bus. Poor Debbie will now have to return to her former career making porn. The entire DNC was a hate fest, which is ironic since it was held in the "city of brotherly love". Speaker after speaker came up to the podium to yell and chastise and belittle our great country. And with not one American flag to be seen!
Here is just a sample of the speakers: a group of Mothers whose children where criminals came up to the stage to accuse the police of taking part in, or actually killing their kids! It was so distasteful. Whoops, to prevent a lawsuit, I should say they were allegedly
criminals. Then there were the parents of a soldier son who bravely saved the lives of others, they whined on about how Donald hated Islam. Donald wants to protect us from Islamist radical extremists by keeping all of them out of our country until its sorted out. How long can that take? A few thousand years perhaps? These parents should be thanking him! There was a disabled speaker in a wheelchair, but I didn't really hear what she was complaining about because I just can't look or listen to those disabled kinds. So, I missed that, but I'm sure she blamed Donald for her plight. Somehow. Then there was the Obama's. Oh you know it! First up, Michelle came up with a whooper of a story! She claims that slaves built the White House! Once you stop laughing, you can rest assured that historian Bill O'Reilly corrected her right away:
Slaves that worked there were well-fed and had decent lodgings provided by the government, which stopped hiring slave labor in 1802. However, the feds did not forbid subcontractors from using slave labor. So, Michelle Obama is essentially correct in citing slaves as builders of the White House, but there were others working as well. Got it all? There will be a quiz.
You see? Bill knows that they were hiring slaves. How is it slavery if you're hiring them? I really hate to call the First Lady out about this, but she is, as usual, wrong about everything. The President also spoke. Rather, he spoke the words of one Donald J. Trump Jr. That's right, he plagiarized young Donald. Read it and weep Mr. President: Donald Trump Jr:
There's so much work to do. We will not accept the current state of our country because it's too hard to change. That's not the America I know. We're going to unleash the creative spirit and energy of all Americans. We're going to make our schools the best in the world for every single American of every single ethnicity and background.
President Barack Obama:
What we heard in Cleveland last week wasn't particularly Republican and it sure wasn't conservative. What we heard was a deeply pessimistic vision of a country where we turn against each other and turn away from the rest of the world. There were no serious solutions to pressing problems, just the fanning of resentment and blame and anger and hate. And that is not the America I know. The America I know is full of courage, and optimism, and ingenuity. The America I know is decent and generous.
I cry for the soul of our country. Ronald Reagan said it best, "Let's make America great again". Indeed, Ronnie, indeed.
