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.
April 15, 2016
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.

If you really want to go there, no one asked President George H.W. Bush to shut down his foundation when his son ran for and then won (well … was conceded) the presidency in 2000. Neither did anyone suggest both H.W.’s and W’s foundations shut down when Jeb was running. Where was the hue and cry? We have eschewed macros and graphics during this cycle because they are slick and often the sourcing is questionable. Think this appears trustworthy.
Then, since Jeb is, in fact, not the person running, there is this.
There have been many Trump moves during this campaign that cause Hillary supporters to ask, “What if Hillary had done that?” There are reports that Trump profited off the campaign in a few ways. First by renting office space in Trump Tower to the campaign as headquarters and then by jacking up the rent. Then there is the matter of his diverting campaign donations to buy $55,000 worth of his own book, from which he collected royalties, to stuff gift bags for delegates at the convention.
Delegates to the DNC who received free copies of Hard Choices in your gift bags, please raise your hands! OH! Nobody!
As to Trump’s tax returns, yet to be released, his son thinks this is a “bad idea” for the most outrageous of reasons.
According to Eric Trump, it would be “foolish” for his father Donald to release his income-tax returns amid the presidential race. “You would have a bunch of people who know nothing about taxes trying to look through and trying to come up with assumptions on things they know nothing about,” the 32-year-old spawn of the real-estate mogul said on CNBC Wednesday.

Why are the cable news folks not reporting Trump’s shenanigans? What have we got to lose? Her!

Hillary Clinton Statement on EpiPen Pricing
Today, Hillary Clinton issued the following statement on Mylan Pharmaceuticals and their recent price hike on EpiPens:
“Millions of Americans with severe allergies rely on their EpiPens. When an allergic reaction leads to anaphylactic shock, a shot of epinephrine can literally be the difference between life and death. But now, just as parents are about to send kids with severe food and insect allergies back to school, the EpiPen’s manufacturer is hiking its price to an all-time high.
“Over the last several years, Mylan Pharmaceuticals has increased the price of EpiPens by more than 400%. They’re now charging up to $600 for a two-EpiPen set that must be replaced every 12-18 months. This both increases out-of-pocket costs for families and first responders, and contributes to higher premiums for all Americans and their employers.
“That’s outrageous – and it’s just the latest troubling example of a company taking advantage of its consumers. I believe that our pharmaceutical and biotech industries can be an incredible source of American innovation, giving us revolutionary treatments for debilitating diseases. But it’s wrong when drug companies put profits ahead of patients, raising prices without justifying the value behind them.
“That’s why I’ve put forward a plan to address exorbitant drug price hikes like these. As part of my plan, I’ve made clear that pharmaceutical manufacturers should be required to explain significant price increases, and prove that any additional costs are linked to additional patient benefits and better value. Since there is no apparent justification in this case, I am calling on Mylan to immediately reduce the price of EpiPens.
“In addition, when it comes to treatments like delivering epinephrine that have been available for decades, my plan encourages the production of alternative products. That’s how we can harness the power of competition to keep drug prices at a level that all Americans can afford.”

When Hillary Clinton is not in front of cameras, some seem to think she is “home” and “sleeping.” Or maybe she is “hiding.” A lot of Hillary’s work does require closed doors, briefings and discussions, and deep thought. Her words, when she is in front of cameras, reflect the homework that she and her staff do out of the public eye.
With that as a given, here is some of what Hillary Clinton was up to today. She was up and down, in the air and on the ground, attending fundraisers in California. She also found time to host a tele-town hall with small business owners. So, no she was not on her sickbed or her deathbed. She was not sleeping after her energetic appearance with Jimmy Kimmel last night. She was hard at work.
Hillary Clinton hosted a tele-town hall today with small business owners where she discussed her new comprehensive plan to jumpstart small business startup and strengthen small business growth.
“I believe when you succeed, families thrive and our nation prospers,” said Hillary Clinton. “But I also know that in lots of ways, the odds are stacked against too many of you too many times. It’s clear that big corporations get a lot of the breaks. It’s much harder for you to get a loan, to file taxes, to offer health care to your workers. And from everything I’ve heard and know, you aren’t looking for special breaks. You want commonsense policies that will make life a little bit easier, and that’s why I am releasing our plan today.”
Clinton’s plan is a comprehensive, job-creating package of reforms and innovations to jumpstart small business startups, and strengthen small business growth.
On the call, Clinton highlighted Trump’s record of putting himself first and leaving small businesses hanging. Excerpts of the transcript are included below:
Hillary Clinton: “Donald Trump has made a career of stiffing small businesses, driving some of them actually out of business. He refused to pay them for the work they’d already done – not because he couldn’t pay them, but because he chose not to pay them. “
Hillary Clinton: “Even his new campaign manager said that Trump, and I quote, “built a lot of his businesses on the backs of the little guy.”
- Kellyanne Conway:“[Donald Trump] says he’s for the little guy, but he’s actually built a lot of his business on the backs of the little guy.” [Kellyanne Conway interview on CNN Newsroom, 2/10/16]
Hillary Clinton: “In fact, according to an independent analysis, Trump’s ideas would result in a prolonged recession that would cost 3.4 million jobs. That same analyst analyzed my plan and found that the economy would create more than 10 million new jobs. “

Today, Hillary Clinton issued the following statement on the ongoing flood response in Louisiana:
“This month’s floods in Louisiana are a crisis that demand a national response. More than 30,000 people have been rescued by the Coast Guard, National Guard, and other emergency responders. Thousands of people have lost everything. At least 13 lost their lives. We must make sure that all resources are brought to bear in responding to the crisis and helping communities rebuild.
“That is why I have called on supporters of this campaign to give what they can to the Red Cross, to bring much-needed aid and supplies to the more than 100,000 people affected by the floods. We also need to make sure that this crisis is not compounded by another, by ensuring mosquito abatement is happening hand-in-hand with flood response, to reduce the riska of mosquitoes that could carry the Zika virus from gaining a foothold in Louisiana.
“The best way to help Louisianans affected by these terrible floods is to make sure they have the resources they need today. I am committed to visiting communities affected by these floods, at a time when the presence of a political campaign will not disrupt the response, to discuss how we can and will rebuild together.
“In times of crisis, Americans have always come together to lift each other up, support each other, and rebuild stronger and better than before. That is what we must do now in Louisiana, and I am committed to standing with Louisianans every step of the way.”
