Why Hillary Clinton's DNC Speech Is The Most *Fist Pump* Thing You'll See Today

'We are not afraid. We will rise to the challenge, just as we always have...'

If you haven't already seen Hillary Clinton's acceptance speech at the final night of the DNC, then do yourselves a favor. Watch it. If anyone was ever in any doubt about Hillary's suitability for America's presidency, all haters were momentarily silenced by her powerful oration, as she made history by becoming the first woman to make a bid for the White House.

Taking to the podium on the final night of the party's convention in Philadelphia, Hillary was quick to  mention the 'huge challenges' America faced, and that 'powerful forces' were threatening to tear the country apart. She recognised opponent Bernie Sanders' incredible effort to reach out to America's youth, praising his ethos and how he has in turn inspired a whole new generation of voters.

'Bernie, your campaign inspired millions of Americans, particularly the young people who threw their hearts and souls in our primary. You've put economic social justice issues front and center, where they belong. And to all of your supporters here and around the country, I want you to know: I heard you. Your cause is our cause.'

And (because she's a badass) Hillary was more than happy to throw some serious shade at Republican rival Donald Trump. The message was clear. You don't scare me.

'Don't believe anyone who says, 'I alone can fix it,'' she stated.  'Isn't [Donald Trump] forgetting troops on the front lines? Police officers who run toward danger? Doctors and nurses who care for us? Teachers who change lives? Entrepreneurs who see possibilities in every problem? Mothers who lost children to violence and are building a movement to keep other kids safe? He's forgetting every last one of us. Americans don't say, 'I alone can fix it.' We say, 'We'll fix it together.''

She added:

'A man you can bait with a tweet is not a man we can trust with nuclear weapons.'


And, now that Hillary's vision for America has been laid out for the world to see, we can only hope that her presidential campaign is successful. The alternative is just too terrifying to comprehend.
