Well, it’s day two of the #DNC and all news outlets reported chaos. Bernie Sanders supporters booed Hillary Clinton supporters, refusing to listen to the speakers at the convention. Sarah Silverman got them back in line when she mentions how ridiculous they seem. The night belonged to the list of powerful speakers though.
#DNC: Michelle Obama’s outstanding speech
Here’s a woman that understood her position. Both the #DNC and the #RNC actually agreed with her giving an outstanding speech at the convention. It is only right that after almost eight years as a first lady, she understands what it takes to work for the people. It is all about leaving something better for the children. They follow their parents example and that of other adults in the circle. Others are watching This blogger likes her ‘aim high’ remark in the video. I also like that she criticizes the RNC nominee with class without mentioning his name. She uses his campaign slogan.
#DNC: Eva Longoria’s speech
As a woman of color and disabled, this blogger feels for Eva Longoria. She uses her speech at the DNC showing Donald Trump that his attitude toward immigrants Mexicans, Latinos, Hispanics, etc., offend her. In fact, it looked like he got an education. This is what she said:
So when Donald Trump calls us criminals and rapists, he’s insulting American families. My father is not a criminal or rapist, in fact, he’s a United States veteran. When Trump cruelly mocked a disabled reporter, he was also mocking my special-needs sister Lisa and many like her. When he said that a wife who works is a very dangerous thing, he not only insulted me, he insulted my mother who worked as a special-education teacher for 40 years and raised four children while being a wife.
Her words speak volumes. The sting I feel is one of rejection, especially in employment. Yes, this blog is helping. This December marks one year. My thanks go out to the one who joins me today. Before 2014, these state programs haven’t done anything beyond the basics like preparing resumes, interview readiness, etc., because of their small budget. Remote blogging solved a lot of my problem, so long as the pay covered what my government checks do not. Working twenty hours a week didn’t. A lot of them refused to use the skill already possessed by me. The pay has to be on going for them to recognize it as legitimate. Trump’s words hurt me too.
One more thing the media noticed. There is more diversity among the #DNC speakers than those at the RNC last week.
