Sen. Kamala Harris officially accepted her historic vice presidential nomination on a night filled with heavy hitters at the DNC.
The most talked-about words came from former President Barack Obama, who set aside an unwritten presidential rule to not directly attack the current officeholder and unleashed a scathing rebuke of President Trump’s governance.
Obama said he’d hoped Trump would take the presidency seriously and develop “some reverence” for democracy. But, Obama said, “He never did.”
Sen. Elizabeth Warren and Hillary Clinton also spoke during the third night of the virtual event, with the latter issuing a strong warning to voters to make their voices heard. “Don’t forget: Joe and Kamala can win 3 million more votes and still lose,” Clinton said. “Take it from me.”
