Donald Trump told a white audience in Jackson, Mississippi, where it’s hard to scrape up a crowd of white people, that Hillary Clinton is a bigot.

As senator, Hillary supported many initiatives that were struggling and small and needed a helping hand. This is one of those stories. Here is a special message and video from Hillary for America.
When news outlets pair the name Hillary Clinton with the word fundraiser in their headers, the implication is that the funds are being raised for her and for her campaign, but that is not necessarily the true story.

Those of us who have had the privilege of having met Hillary Clinton know that she is warm, generous, and encouraging. Always gracious, she is open, welcoming, and a cheerful good sport. Participants in the Chappaqua Summer Scholarship Program had their chance to meet and greet Hillary on Sunday upon completion of their summer courses.

Hillary stepped off the campaign trail for awhile today, and into the charged situation in Flint, Michigan. This morning on TV she spoke knowledgeably about the dangerous effects of lead poisoning as well as the structural challenges involved in making the pipelines safe again. If any other candidate for president knows as much as Hillary does on this topic, that individual has been remarkably silent on the subject.

Two days after publishing an Easter Sunday Op-Ed in the New York Daily News addressing gun violence, Hillary Clinton visited a Baptist Church in Milwaukee today to participate in a forum on the subject.
At Rancho High School in Las Vegas, Hillary made clear her determination to effect immigration reform and a path to citizenship for Dreamers and, importantly, their families.
This event is a perfect example of Hillary’s early campaign strategy. Rather than doing the speaking, Hillary is hearing the stories these Dreamers have to tell. For those who still do not get it, statements from her will not proliferate right now. She is busy doing the listening.

Actually, I have a lot more. That was only a sample. And there is this.
In the United States, people will tell you they come by their children’s names any number of ways. And, each year, parental notions of originality are dashed when the Social Security Administration’s most popular names list makes it clear that millions of parents also thought that Emma, Noah or Olivia was distinctly made for their little one too.
But the United States is home to people who hail from many nations and where pieces of other cultures thrive. For instance in the Democratic Republic of Congo, a Central African nation riddled by armed conflict, widespread sexual violence as a tool of war and less-than-democratic elections, there is a tradition of giving children a first name which captures some aspect of what you hope they will be, what kind of personality, habits and abilities they will demonstrate.
And on Tuesday, all of that collided briefly with a singular moment in American political history.
OH! And there is this!
A 1973 suit against Trump and the Trump Organization claimed that superintendents at Trump properties would mark African American’s applications with a ‘C’ for ‘Colored’ and other racial codes.
When an African American showed up to rent an apartment owned by a young real-estate scion named Donald Trump and his family, the building superintendent did what he claimed he’d been told to do. He allegedly attached a separate sheet of paper to the application, marked with the letter “C.”
“C” for “Colored.”
Wow! Sometimes it’s just all about those Cs!

Some of the recovered emails that the FBI investigators combed through had what could have been noticed or missed depending upon how far down a chain of emails you scrolled or how quickly your eye scanned the text. (c) To discern the marking you had first to know what it indicated and second had to read carefully and thoroughly through the email chain since the marking might have appeared in an early version of an email and might have been removed in later texts, or the marking might not have been removed when it should have been. Did you see it? In testimony to the Oversight Committee, FBI Director James Comey stated that paragraphs or sentences bearing this mark were not offset with indentation.
(c) Now you see it.
Who is the bigot? You decide. You are the voter! To me, Trump is a cartoon drawn by Gary Larson.
