Clinton Empty Seats On Nomination Night
Like Losing In The Playoffs Due To Bad Officiating, Then Finding Out They Were Bribed
Enthusiasm wins elections as the man in the video says and there definitely is a deficit of that vital commodity among the Democrats with their candidate, Hillary Clinton. After she was nominated and the speech given by her husband, “Predator Bill.” The Sanders supporters were especially quick to leave before the evening’s festivities had concluded. They had a protest to stage at the media center.
The man in the video describes the scene, saying, “This is amazing, this place is empty. There is nobody left in here. I mean this whole stadium. Look at this, look at this; empty seats, empty seats.” He points to the seats which were previously filled by members of the California delegation as them being almost entirely gone.
He captures the impact of their early departure precisely, saying, “This is not voter enthusiasm.” He says, “This is the prime time of the Democrat National Convention, right after the nomination of Hillary Clinton and this place has emptied out like crazy. I’m stunned.”
As the lights come up he shows more of the emptiness, saying, “This is like a 76ers game.” He adds “This has got to be something really worrisome for Democrats. Voter enthusiasm wins elections. He notes that the floor seats were given to Clinton states and the cheap seats went to those Sanders carried. It is those Sanders states where the seats are empty. Those delegates were involved in a walk out, with many of them symbolically applying a strip of duct tape to their mouths.
He observes, “This campaign has to do something to get these people back in the room.” That’s going to be a tough challenge, especially considering their candidate and the situation surrounding the Sanders defeat. Had he lost fair and square it would have been tough to win them over, given that Clinton is such an unattractive candidate.
The fact that foul play was involved in primary defeat as well as her many other instances of profiteering and criminal activity make winning the Sanders supporters over a supreme challenge for her. Nobody likes a cheater and a thief.
