6 Takeaways From Wednesday Night At The DNC:
The Democratic A-list on Wednesday cast Donald Trump as a threat to the American dream — and Hillary Clinton as the nation’s only chance to save it.
President Barack Obama called Trump a “homegrown demagogue.” Michael Bloomberg dismissed him as a “con.” And Vice President Joe Biden, in rejecting Trump, declared that “Americans have never, ever, ever, ever let their country down.”
They set the frame for the Democratic National Convention’s most important moment: Clinton’s speech Thursday night.
John Hinckley Jr. Set To Be Released:
A federal judge on Wednesday granted John Hinckley Jr., the man who shot President Ronald Reagan in 1981, “full-time convalescent leave” from St. Elizabeth’s Hospital.
