    Donald Trump says he hopes Russia hacked Hillary Clinton’s email

    In a freewheeling and unusual news conference, even for him, Donald Trump directly called on Russia to find the estimated 30,000 emails that Hillary Clinton deleted from a controversial private email server she used as secretary of state. “Russia, if you’re listening, I hope you’re able to find the 30,000 emails that are missing,” the Republican presidential nominee said, staring directly into the bank of television cameras set up at a golf course he owns outside Miami. It came after Trump faced intense questioning from reporters over his relationship to Russia amid allegations that the country might be trying to influence the outcome of the presidential election on his behalf.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Twenty-eight years ago, then-Texas Gov. 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.

    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 — In back-to-back speeches Monday, America’s two most popular progressives — Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren and Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders — tried to unite the Democratic Party around the presumptive nominee, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, after a rancorous, decorum-shattering session that saw delegates loyal to Sanders booing or chanting “Bernie! Bernie!” nearly every time Clinton’s name was mentioned.
