She's been tell the truth. The problem is, like Harry Truman discovered, when he spoke the truth people thought he was giving them hell.

If Hillary Clinton hadn't been telling the truth, the right wouldn't have hated her so much.

Might want to revisit why the rude reporter was thrown out.

I wouldn't vote for any candidate who allowed BLM to disprupt his or her campaign event or who tolerated a weasel like Jorge Ramos.

Look at Bernie:

He let BLM take away his mic. Just like Obama let Putin take away Crimea, and Iran take away restrictions on its nukes and ballistic missiles.

Then, when given a chance to criticize Hillary, Bernie refused -- basically saying she should be president instead of him.

No need to destroy Bernie -- he did it to himself.

Hillary will probably be indicted based on her emails.

Crazy Uncle Joe is standing by.

What I saw and heard was the BLN people saying something, then Mrs. Clinton spoke and then there was applause.

In any case, the OP's account is not what occurred.

I agree.
We need to stop pandering and diminishing this kind of behavior.
Thankfully, there is a backlash now happening to Obama's anti-discipline policies that are sadly creating a disrespectful and anarchist attitude with young minorities.

Hillary's got this...she is talking about voting rights, which Republicans have tried to erode in recent years due to demographic changes they know are not in their favor.

He mistook the press conference for the border. Thought he can just cut in line and step on everybody behind him. What he didn't know was that Officer Trump was just hired by the Border Patrol and he was not about to let him slip in.

"squirms awkwardly"? There they go again - the paranoid, nutty tinfoil crowd...

I don't plan to vote for her and I don't support Black Lives Matter, but from what I saw, she handled it well.

Well.......

"quivers" seemed a bit inappropriate. IMO, this BLM stuff won't amount to anything. They might protest at an event for The King, but in the end, they will line up like lemmings an vote for her.

And for her part, she will be glad that she won't have to be in a room with them again pretending to give a damn for another 4 years.

Gene Hackman expresses it best with the correct demeanor on foreign and domestic policy. Well worth a review to get the correct perspective on truth.
