***DNC LiveWire*** Bill Clinton, ‘Mothers of the Movement’ Featured; ‘Anti-Police’ March in Philly

Welcome to Breitbart News’s live updates of the 2016 Democratic National Convention. Bill Clinton will be one of the featured speakers along with the “Mothers of the Movement”–the mothers of Trayvon Martin, Sandra Bland, Eric Garner and others who have formed strong bonds with Clinton–a day after terrorism and law and order were barely referenced.

All eyes will be on Bill Clinton and how disciplined he will be in not responding to potential hecklers and resisting the urge to promote himself–and his legacy–instead of his wife’s candidacy. It is also interesting that the “Mothers of the Movement” will follow Clinton given that Clinton lashed out at Black Lives Matter activists in the spring.

 

All times eastern.

11:50: Trump with the winning message, thanks to VA Gov. McAuliffe, who is trying his best to do to Hillary Clinton what Bill Clinton did to her during the 2008 Dem. primary with his “fairy tale” and “Jesse Jackson” remarks:

11:35: The left-wing in action, showing their true colors:

11:13: In a slickly produced video message, Clinton appears after glass-ceiling montage cracks. She says she can’t believe “we just put the biggest crack in the glass ceiling yet.” She says if there are little girls who stayed up to watch, she may become the first woman President but “one of you is next.”

11:05: Alicia Keys pushes gun control and dedicates the closing song to the Mothers of the Movement. She says we can’t claim to be the “home of the brave” until we deal with “gun violence.”

11:00: Meryl Streep says Clinton will be the first woman president but won’t be the last.

10:48: Clinton says “real change is hard” and makes direct appeal to illegal immigrants and Muslims “who hate terror” to vote for Hillary.

10:43: Clinton says his wife was reluctant about accepting the Sec. of State job because she loved being the Senator from New York so much. He says Clinton accomplished more change before she was 30 than most public officials accomplish in a lifetime. [Bill Clinton wasn’t the “Big Dog,” but he did not harm, and that’s all that Democrats could have asked for.]

10:30: Clinton touting his wife’s experiences re: education standards, etc. Not much different from his “change maker” stump speech.

10:11: He says in the spring of 1971, “I met a girl.” They met in a class on political and civil rights. He’s recounting his courtship of Hillary. He’s now talking about Clinton’s history of doing civil rights work throughout the South and Texas.

9:32: Howard Dean accusing Trump of wanting to take Americans back to a time when insurance companies can charge women more for health care and those with pre-existing conditions.

8:45: The always vile and heinous Lena Dunham (a complete fraud ) is now on stage. She says, according to Donald Trump, “my body is  like… a two.”

8:45: Planned Parenthood’s Cecile Richards (“introduced as “Cecil”) blasting Trump for wanting to defund Planned Parenthood.

8:33: Crowd keeps chanting “Black Lives Matter!”

8:23: Scandal actor Tony Goldwyn speaks about his work with the Innocence Project and introduces the “Mothers of the Movement.” Crowd chants “Black Lives Matter.” Sandra Bland’s mother talks about needing to vote for a president who will fight for “restoration” and change. Jordan Davis’s mom says Clinton isn’t afraid to say “Black Lives Matter.” Trayvon Martin’s mother touting Clinton’s support for gun control.

Holder says Clinton, whose husband signed the Crime Bill, will end “over-incarceration.” He praises Clinton for talking about “system racism.”

7:58: From Breitbart News: Ashley Judd Joins Black Lives Matter March Outside DNC

7:51: Donna Brazile now speaking. She says she no spring chicken and she’s “seen some things in her time.” She says she lived through and survived the segregated South. “Who dat.” And as a grown woman, she saw the first black President. She says when Hillary Clinton was fighting for civil rights out of law school, Trump was facing housing discrimination lawsuit for failing to rent apartments to blacks. She says she met Clinton and Marion Wright Edelman’s Children’s Defense Fund. She praises Clinton for wanting illegal immigrants to have all of the opportunities as citizens.
