“Hillary Clinton will make an outstanding president and I am proud to stand with her tonight.” – Bernie Sanders

11:11 p.m.
“Think about the Supreme Court justices that Donald Trump will nominate.”

11:06 pm.
“Hillary Clinton must become the next President of the United States.” – Bernie Sanders

10:52 p.m.
Larry David should have introduced Bernie.  (h/t to The Husband)

10:48 p.m.
Is this Convention in Minnesota or Philadelphia?

9:56 p.m.
And THAT is how you give a speech.

9:55 p.m.
During the 2004 convention, when we watched Senator Barack Obama speak, I said to Bill that we were watching a future President of the United States.
We’re seeing another one right now.‪#‎CoryBookerWillRiseToTheWhiteHouseMarkMyWords‬

9:50 p.m.
PREACH IT, CORY BOOKER. What a hell of a speech this is.

9:23 p.m.
This is stepping into shitshow territory.

9:21 p.m.
I have just never liked Sarah Silverman.

9:17 p.m.
Sarah Silverman should not be on that stage.

9:13 p.m.
Um, no. Bad choice of songs there with “Billy, Don’t You Lose My Number.”
Who the hell’s idea was that???!! Seriously??!!

9:07 p.m.
“Donald Trump doesn’t hear me and he sure doesn’t speak for me.” – Anastasia Somoza, International Disability Rights Advocate

9:07 p.m.
As absolutely uncomfortable as it was to watch Trump’s mocking the reporter with a disability (and I admit, I had not seen this before now — only the coverage of it), I can only imagine how horrible it was for that reporter. And I am SO GLAD they highlighted this in prime time during the convention.

8:54 p.m.
Al Franken’s speech is comedy gold.

8:08 p.m.
Oh, my God, that kid … I’m practically in tears.‪#‎KarlaOrtizForPresident‬

This is stepping into shitshow territory.

Elizabeth Warren should fail Joe Kennedy for that crappy introduction.

Melissa July 25, 201610:51 pm

It would be really funny if Larry David introduced Bernie.
