Former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton shames Donald Trump in Selma: “We are living through a full-fledged crisis in our democracy.” Clinton compared the struggles that spurred the civil rights movement decades ago as she spoke at an event commemorating the 54th anniversary of Bloody Sunday.
“This is a time, my friends, when fundamental rights, civic virtue, freedom of the press, the rule of law, truth, facts and reason are under assault,” Clinton said according to a report from CNN. “And make no mistake, we are living through a full-fledged crisis in our democracy,” she added.
“When racist and white supremacist views are lifted up in the media and the White House, when hard-fought-for civil rights are being stripped back, when the single most important fight of our time, which makes it possible to fight every other fight and must be, as Frederick Douglass would say, our North Star, the fight to protect our vote, is not gathering the momentum and the energy and the passion it deserves, we have a lot of work to do, don’t we?” Clinton said.
Presidential candidates Cory Booker and Bernie Sanders were also present for the events. Booker went up to Mrs. Clinton and gave her a hug and posed for a photograph. Bernie simply shook her hand and took his seat. That tells you all you need to know about the kind of person he is.
Hillary Clinton goes off on voter suppression efforts: "Candidates both black and white lost their races because they have been deprived of the votes they otherwise would have gotten. And the clearest example is from next door in Georgia. Stacey Abrams should be governor." pic.twitter.com/I5j0I8AD88
