At the final stop for the bus tour that went through Pennsylvania and Ohio after the Democratic National Convention, Hillary Clinton took a swing at Donald Trump’s questionable judgement on policy.
“I want people to have made an informed choice,” Clinton told the crowd, according to the Washington Post. “I don’t want folks to be misled, to listen to the rhetoric and the demagoguery.”
“I think Donald Trump poses a serious threat to our democracy, and it’s going to be up to all of us to repudiate the hatefulness,” she continued.
Trump spent the weekend drowning in scandals, with his attacks on the Khan family, his lack of support from GOP leaders over the Khan battle, indeed both parties spent time attacking Trump over his disrespect of the Khan family, his attacks on the Fire Marshal who saved him from an elevator moments before Trump attacked him, being caught in a lie about the Koch brothers, the Kochs still don’t intend to support him and Trump made a major foreign policy flub showing his lack of knowledge on Ukraine.
Earlier Sunday, Clinton attacked Trump for his comments about the Khans family, telling reporters that his words are part of a pattern. “One doesn’t know where the bottom is,” Clinton said. “It’s hard to imagine anyone who has ever run to be president of the United States saying any of what he said.”
She later denounced Trump’s “attacks on distinguished military leaders” in her speech to the Ohio audience. Saying that his attacks are “insulting the family of a fallen soldier — Captain Khan, an American Muslim who sacrificed his life to protect his unit and other soldiers as a taxi raced toward a base containing a bomb.”
Just a few days out of Philadelphia, Clinton called on the founding documents of the United States of America that established our freedom and liberty.
“When his father spoke at the convention and pulled out a copy of the Constitution, it was so fitting that that happened in Philadelphia, where our country started 240 years ago,” she said. “George Washington, Thomas Jefferson — they addressed different religions, including Islam, that were present in America from the very beginning.”
“I want all of us to stand for freedom and equality and justice and opportunity now and forever,” Clinton said.

Beto O’Rourke calls for a ‘war tax’ in release of health care plan for veterans
The Democratic presidential candidate uses his eighth policy announcement to focus on an area that he prioritized in Congress.
Democratic presidential candidate Beto O'Rourke on Monday morning released a plan to improve the lives of veterans, returning to an area of priority during his time in the U.S. House for his latest 2020 policy rollout.
In keeping with measures he supported in Congress, the plan calls for a "responsible end" to the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan — reinvesting $1 out of every $2 saved in veterans programs — and the creation of a Veterans Health Care Trust Fund for each future war. The fund would be paid for by a "war tax" on households without service members or veterans.
Conservative Ben Shapiro tweeted something many found offensive — so now he’s calling his critics ‘garbage’
Right wing "thought leader" Ben Shapiro appeared today to say not using the "N" word is nearly impossible as he defended conservative, pro-gun teen Kyle Kashuv, one of the Parkland survivors who just had his acceptance to Harvard rescinded over his racist remarks, which included repeated use of the "N" word.
To be clear, Shapiro denies that's what he meant.
Here is Shapiro on Twitter, in what many took as him appearing to call not using the "N" word – in Kashuv's case, repeatedly, over and over and over again, "an insane, cruel standard no one can possibly meet."
