Day Three of the DNC
Day three of the Democratric National Convention was not without its one-liners and the occasional outbursts from the audience. Wednesday evening was considered the "passing of the baton" from current President Barack Obama to Presidential nominee Hillary Clinton. The main theme of the third night of the convention was mainly focused on gun control, global warming and national security.
Former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg used his time on the podium to take a couple swipes at Republican Presidential nominee Donald Trump.
"Trump says he wants to run the nation like he's run his business. God help us!" said Bloomberg.
Without skipping a beat on the Trump bashing, Vice-Presidential nominee Tim Kaine added his two cents to the topic by mocking Trump's New York accent.
"We're gonna destroy ISIS so fast —believe me! There's nothing suspicious in my tax returns— believe me!" Kaine said, receiving a huge pop from the audience at the Wells Fargo Center.
The speech of the night was from Vice-President Joe Biden which centered on Trump's negative messages which wound up being used against him.
"His lack of empathy and compassion can be summed up in a phrase I think he's really proud of: "You're fired." Biden said, "How can there be pleasure in saying you're fired? He's saying he cares about the middle class. Give me a break. That's a bunch of malarkey."
President Barack Obama concluded the evening giving the crowd his endorsement of Hillary Clinton. "There is only one candidate in this race who believes in the future, has devoted her life to it; a leader with real plans to break down barriers and blast through glass ceilings and widen the circle of opportunity to every single American, the next President of the united States, Hillary Clinton."
