Here’s What Krauthammer Thinks Was the ‘Most Astonishing’ Line of the DNC –61ih.
Charles Krauthammer joined Bret Baier tonight to preview Hillary Clinton’s big speech at the Democratic National Convention and reveal what he’s found to be the “most astonishing” line of the DNC thus far.
Krauthammer said that line came in President Obama’s speech last night, when he suggested Donald Trump threatens American values in the same ways Islamists or foreign dictators do.
“That’s why anyone who threatens our values, whether fascists or communists or jihadists or homegrown demagogues, will always fail in the end,” Obama said.
Krauthammer acknowledged he’s not a big fan of Trump, but he also wouldn’t compare the Republican presidential nominee to Hitler, Stalin or bin Laden.
“Trump represents the antithesis of what [Obama] does in his own mind,” Krauthammer said. “He really is going to throw his weight into this election.”
Krauthammer added that Clinton’s embrace of President Obama in her speech tonight is “utterly inevitable.”
“When you’ve been a member of the cabinet … to a sitting president and you want to succeed him, there’s no way that you can actually loosen the embrace,” Krauthammer said. “So you might as well ride with it.”
He said that despite all the progress of the past seven-and-a-half years, there is still more work to do to perfect our union, and that begins with a fundamental choice in this election.
“There is only one candidate in this race who believes in that future, and has devoted her life to it; a mother and grandmother who’d do anything to help our children thrive; a leader with real plans to break down barriers, blast through glass ceilings, and widen the circle of opportunity to every single American – the next President of the United States, Hillary Clinton.”
“That is the Hillary I know. That’s the Hillary I’ve come to admire. And that’s why I can say with confidence there has never been a man or a woman – not me, not Bill, nobody – who has been more qualified than Hillary Clinton to serve as president of the United States of America.”
