Hillary Clinton Speaks at the SEIU International Convention (5/23/16)


TheGuardian.com:
Hillary Clinton launched a no-holds-barred attack on her likely general election opponent, Donald Trump, in a speech laced with explicit warnings about the dangers of electing him to the presidency.

The former US secretary of state returned to Detroit on Monday to address the Service Employees International Union’s international convention and ask its 2.1 million workers for help in defeating Trump.

“Trump economics is a recipe for lower wages, fewer jobs, more debt. He could bankrupt America like he has bankrupted his companies,” she told a crowd of roughly 3,000 members, all wearing their purple union shirts. The SEIU has endorsed Clinton for president.

She paused, smiled and threw a punch: “I mean ask yourself how can anybody lose money running a casino? Really?”
After a great introduction, Clinton begins speaking at about the 12-min mark in the video above.

  1. It's still hard for me to think Trump isn't secretly diminishing the Republican message to destroy the Republicans. He takes it so much farther, putting his crony crooks on his committees, it's demanding Maddow explain just what they'd done with American's money, and bringing up Foster, and that crazy laugh of Hillary at the end of his Bill hit piece, it's hilariously too too over the top, I've heard it a few times, I can't not laugh.

    But the Mexican Americans aren't laughing, they're registering. My friend Blanca is always wondering, why just Mexicans, it's alway Mexicans. Well, it is the biggest voting block to defeat him and the entire premise, is it possible, could he really be out to destroy the Republican party, it isn't just an accident?

    And as long as she quotes him, he loves it, says yeah, I said that.

    and he has six months of this, he's started off with everything, and the heads are thinking that he thinks she'll respond in kind, he's not that stupid.

    And the racists on his team have upset the Adelson group, they won't back Trump even though they have Nathan's money, Trump has anti-semites openly supporting him, it won't happen. I belong to Jewish Voters for Peace, for the first time we're on the same side, it's a miracle.

    Her ads are very good, she has a great way of going after him, just using his own words, they tell the story fine.

    And how can anybody lose money running a casino? (I hope he explains)
