    Donald Trump to NBC reporter: 'Be quiet'

    Donald Trump told a reporter to “be quiet” on Wednesday after she pressed the Republican nominee over his assertion that he hopes the Russians have Hillary Clinton’s emails. At a press conference in Doral, Fla., NBC News correspondent Katy Tur asked Trump whether this week’s leak of Democratic National Committee emails, which cybersecurity experts believe were obtained by Russian hackers, gave him pause. “It gives me no pause,” Trump said.

    Bill O'Reilly says White House slaves 'were well-fed and had decent lodgings'

    During Michelle Obama’s speech on the opening night of the Democratic National Convention, the first lady offered a powerful, personal reminder of America’s dark racial history — and just how far the country has come. Fox News host and resident historian Bill O’Reilly decided to fact-check that line for viewers of his primetime show on Tuesday night. “Michelle Obama referenced slaves building the White House in referring to the evolution of America in a positive way.

    How newspapers covered the historic second day of the DNC

    Former President Bill Clinton said Hillary Clinton never quits, and he recalled some of his primary campaigning this spring as proof. The former president offered a spirited defense of his wife’s tenure as secretary of state. He told Democratic convention delegates in Philadelphia that his wife was instrumental in protecting American interests, combating terrorism and advancing human rights. USA Today proclaimed Hillary Clinton the “FIRST WOMAN,” and the headline of the New York Times read, ”DEMOCRATS MAKE CLINTON HISTORIC NOMINEE.”

    Live streams, social platforms and apps, oh my: The DNC & RNC quests for digital engagement

    After formally introducing Sen. Tim Kaine as her running mate at a rally in Virginia last weekend, Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton took to the interactive online publishing platform Medium to offer her supporters a more detailed explanation of how she made her decision. On Monday, as the 2016 Democratic National Convention kicked off in Philadelphia, Kaine responded to Clinton with a Medium post of his own. This online interaction between the Democratic Party’s leading White House contenders was not only emblematic of Medium’s growing presence in the political sphere, but of the crucial role new technology and communication platforms have played in making 2016 the most accessible political convention cycle in history.

    Bernie Sanders’ supporters make a last stand

    A ragtag group of protesters made a last-ditch, quixotic and extremely unofficial effort to secure the Democratic nomination for Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders on Tuesday. Minutes before Hillary Clinton was officially nominated on the floor at the Democratic National Convention at the Wells Fargo Center, a group of pro-Sanders protesters stood outside the security perimeter attempting to persuade delegates to change their mind. They stood pressed against the black metal barricades that encircle the convention and shouted inside at everyone they saw passing by.

    Unconventional #45: DNC Day Three — The ‘Bye-bye, Bernie’ Edition

    Coming to you live every morning from Philadelphia, Unconventional is the one thing you need to read to understand what’s really happening at the Democratic National Convention. PHILADELPHIA — At first it was about him. The theme of the first day of the Democratic National Convention was “United Together” — a redundancy that underscored how desperate the Democratic establishment was to set aside the divisions of this year’s long, hard, primary battle and unite the party around nominee Hillary Clinton.

    Bill Clinton to DNC: Today you nominated the ‘real’ Hillary

    Bill Clinton’s speech at the Democratic National Convention late Tuesday was part grandfatherly musings, part nostalgic love story, part family history, part political memoir and entirely about portraying his wife as trustworthy, authentic and an agent of change for voters sick of the status quo. Republicans fearful of Hillary Clinton’s appeal used their convention to draw a “cartoon alternative” of her, he charged. “Cartoons are two-dimensional, they’re easy to absorb,” said Clinton.

    Hillary Clinton: ‘I may become the first woman president, but one of you is next’

    At the end of a dizzying array of appearances on the second night of the Democratic National Convention here, Hillary Clinton addressed the crowd that officially nominated her earlier in the day, emerging through an image of shattered glass at the end of a slideshow of portraits of the 43 men the United States has elected president. “Hello, Philadelphia, I am so happy!” Clinton said, appearing live from New York not long after her husband delivered a substantial address touting her commitment. Clinton, who will appear at the convention in person on its final night, thanked her supporters, saying, “This is really your victory, this is really your night” and echoed a major theme of the evening, in reaching out to the next generation.

    Lena Dunham: ‘Donald Trump would say my body is probably like a 2’

    The creator of “Girls,” Lena Dunham, and actress America Ferrera took to the stage here Tuesday night to tweak Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump about his views on women, a topic Democrats have been driving home for months in web and TV ads in an effort to increase Trump’s already high negative ratings with women voters heading into the general election. “Hi, I’m Lena Dunham, and according to Donald Trump, my body is probably like a 2,” said Dunham, who has been subjected to a huge amount of public body-shaming as part of her creative decision to appear nude on her show, despite the fact that she is not stick-thin. Trump has a history of publicly ranking women physically in radio remarks and used to own the Miss USA beauty pageant.

    From Bernie's brother to 'Breaking Bad,' the best moments from the Democratic roll call

    The roll calls at nominating conventions are a quadrennial joy, a chance for every state in the nation to brag about former and potential future presidents and products, from Pez to Gore-Tex. After a Republican convention whose highlights included the candidate’s children announcing the votes that put their father over the delegate threshold, it seemed the Democratic roll call might be overshadowed. In what was probably the most emotional moment of the roll call vote, Bernie Sanders’ brother Larry acknowledged their parents, ”who would be immensely proud of their son and his accomplishments.” Sanders, who lives in the United Kingdom, was speaking for the delegation of Democrats Abroad. Both Sanders brothers were failing in their attempts to hold back tears as Larry continued.

    Madeleine Albright, thrilled that Hillary has made history, says she backs her because she’s ‘best’ — not because she’s a woman

    Former U.S. Secretary of State Madeleine Albright said she was thrilled to see Hillary Clinton make history as the first woman presidential candidate for a major party, but noted that she supports Clinton because she believes she’s best for the job, not because she’s a woman. There are plenty of women she wouldn’t have supported — Sarah Palin, for instance. “What we need to do is vote for the person who is best for the job, and I think Hillary is.

    Nine black mothers who have lost children to gun violence vouched for Hillary Clinton during a criminal-justice section of Tuesday night’s DNC program. “Hillary Clinton isn’t afraid to say that black lives matter,” said Lucy McBath, whose 17-year-old son Jordan Davis was shot at a gas station in Florida. “She has the courage to lead the fight for common sense gun legislation,” said Sybrina Fulton, the mother of Trayvon Martin, an unarmed teen who was shot and killed by a neighborhood watchman in 2012.

Ann Richards charmed the Democratic Party from the 1988 convention podium as she taunted the new Republican nominee. “Donald Trump has called women ‘fat pigs’ and ‘dogs,’” she said. Well, Mr. Trump, come this November, women are going to be a lot more than an inconvenience.

    Shortly after delegates at the Democratic National Convention officially nominated Hillary Clinton to be the party’s presidential candidate on Tuesday, a group supporting her ex-rival, Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, stormed into tents outside the Wells Fargo Center arena where members of the media had workspaces. “This is about failed neoliberal policies and they had a chance to save themselves from themselves with Bernie, but they completely blew it. This is a Dem exit,” an Ohio delegate named Mary Findley explained to Yahoo News.

    California’s Bernie holdouts are being even more ‘ridiculous’ than their counterparts from other states. Here’s why.

    PHILADELPHIA — “Governor Brown! We challenge the votes!” a young Bernie Sanders superfan in a black T-shirt and dark glasses shouted at California Gov. Jerry Brown as he tried to announce the results of the June 7 California primary during Tuesday’s roll call here at the Democratic National Convention.
