Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump Call Each Other Unfit for Presidency


#1

WASHINGTON — With their nomination contests finally locked up, Hillary Clinton and Donald J. Trump sought to rev up their core supporters on Friday during dueling speeches in which each cast the other as unfit for the presidency.

Mixing policy arguments with personal attacks, the presumptive nominees clashed from across the capital as they previewed the arguments they will take to the country over the next five months.

For Mr. Trump, who suffered perhaps the most damaging week of his yearlong campaign, a forum for evangelical Christians proved to be an unlikely haven, while Mrs. Clinton was greeted with cheers and pink “Hillary” signs as she vowed to protect women’s rights from Mr. Trump and the Republicans.

“Anyone who wants to defund Planned Parenthood and wipe out safe, legal abortions has no idea what’s best for women,” Mrs. Clinton said of Mr. Trump at a Planned Parenthood Action Fund event here. “After all this is a man who has called women ‘pigs,’ ‘dogs’ and ‘disgusting animals.’”

Her first major address since securing enough delegates to clinch the nomination served Mrs. Clinton on two fronts as she looks to mend fissures within the Democratic Party while turning to the general election. It allowed Mrs. Clinton, the first woman to secure a major party’s presidential nomination, to demonstrate that a bedrock progressive cause was a top priority, and it gave her a forum to press her advantage with female voters against Mr. Trump.

I rarely post in the presidential politics topics, but I will say, for the first time ever, I agree with both of them! :stuck_out_tongue:

Now, I happen to be resident of a state that, for all my life, has had its electoral votes go to one particular political party . So I feel no guilt at all, about sitting this election out.

Oh dear.


#4

Yup.

I’ll be writing in, most likely, though still going to the polls for the many other local races where my vote counts.


#5

:popcorn:…until November.


#6

I know this is crass, but it immediately brought to mind a old joke from Triumph, the Insult Comic Dog:

It’s like poop telling vomit it stinks.


#7

In view of the fact that both Hillary and Trump are unfit for office,the question arises as to why the Americans want to impose this type of political system on other countries.


#8

Lol… not as crass as both their childish behavior.

BTW, awesome signature :thumbsup:


#9

Thanks!


#10

Hillary Clinton is unfit for the office. Americans do not wish to impose any type of political system on other countries.

So, what was your question?


#11

They are both correct, both of them are unfit. Both of them are an embarrassment IMO.


#12

The more people knock Trump the more I like him.


#13

Not planning to vote for either. But Clinton at least would not blow the planet up if some world leader said something mean about her. I can’t say the same for Trump. He just gets so unhinged every time someone gets under his (incredibly thin) skin. Consequently I’m holding out hope that the Republicans might still find a way to dump him at the convention.

Why did they invade Iraq? what did they do after the invasion, except to establish a different system of government?
Why did they invade Vietnam?
Why did they support the illegal coup d’etat in Ukraine, overthrowing the legally elected president?
Why did they support the overthrow of the legal leader of Iran, Mossadegh?
Why are they putting NATO troops in Moldova, contrary to what the people there want?

Both are unfit. I agree Donald should go. :wink:
