Hillary Clinton Live-Texts Her Reaction to the Republican Debate

Hillary Clinton appeared to be having a grand-old time during the third GOP debate tonight as she watched – and live-texted her reactions – from her hotel in New Hampshire, where she is currently campaigning.

“Hillary here. I’m here in New Hampshire watching the GOP debate – how about you?” she texted to her supporters. “Reply YES to get texts from me tonight.”

The text was signed “-H,” meaning it was sent from Clinton herself.

Throughout the debate, Clinton continued to text her supporters – hitting the Republican candidates on issues such as college affordability and equal pay. She called out Republican presidential candidate Ben Carson specifically on health care.

“For a surgeon, Ben Carson has a pretty poor diagnosis,” she texted. “We need to build on the progress we’ve made on health care.”

Seems to me 10 Candidates and 0 new ideas
- Hillary Clinton
It’s past time for the GOP to start putting the safety of our kids and communities ahead of the NRA 
and gun manufactures. This is a mater of life or death. 

- Hillary Clinton
The hardest part about college shouldn't be paying for it. We need real plans to make college affordable and available for everyone.
- Hillary Clinton
For a surgeon, Ben Carson has a pretty poor diagnosis. We need to build on the progress we’ve made on health care. 
- Hillary Clinton
Discrimination against the LGBT community is not a myth. It’s a reality for too many Americans and it’s wrong.
- Hillary Clinton
You don’t have to be a scientist to know that climate change is real and we need to address it.

- Hillary Clinton

In addition to the texts, Clinton’s campaign aired four new television ads in both Iowa and New Hampshire during the GOP debate on similar issues that Clinton brought up tonight, including equal pay and college affordability.

Jimmy Fallon’s interview with Hillary Clinton as Donald Trump is better than the whole GOP debate

wowAdmit it! This was better than the gop debate! 
Jimmy Fallon may make a better Donald Trump than Donald Trump. In a skit from last night’s The Tonight Show, Fallon emulated The Donald in order to give Hillary Clinton some not-so-sound campaign advice. Watch the full clip in all its hilarious glory below:








FACTS MATTER: Jerry Brown sends Dr. Carson a thumbdrive of information

California governor sends Ben Carson a thumbdrive with climate change report

“Please use your considerable intelligence to review this material.”

California’s governor has provided presidential hopeful Dr. Ben Carson with “overwhelming evidence” of climate change, something that the Republican candidate claimed does not exist.
Last week, Carson appeared in San Francisco as part of his campaigning schedule. At an event, he addressed why the “climate change debate” remains, in his view, “irrelevant.” In a tweet published later in the week, Gov. Jerry Brown (D) posted a picture of this letter sent to the retired neurosurgeon.

Dear Dr. Carson,
I hope you’ve enjoyed your visit to the Golden State. It’s come to my attention that while you were here you said the following regarding climate science:
“I know there are a lot of people who say ‘overwhelming science,’ but then when you ask them to show the overwhelming evidence, they never show it…There is no overwhelming science that the things that are going on are man-caused and not naturally caused. Gimmie a break.”
Please find enclosed a flash drive with the complete United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) “Synthesis Report,” the concluding installment of the Fifth Assessment Report, published earlier this year. This report assessed over 30,000 scientific papers and was written by more than 800 scientists, representing 80 countries around the world, who definitively concluded that: “…human influence on the climate system is clear and growing, with impacts observed across all continents and oceans.”
This is just one of the thousands of reports authored by the world’s top scientists on the subject, including a study published just last month by Columbia University, University of Idaho and NASA Goddard Institute for Space Studies scientists that found climate change has intensified California’s drought. These aren’t just words. The consequences are real.
Please use your considerable intelligence to review this material. Climate change is much bigger than partisan politics.
Jerry Brown

HILLARY UNIMPRESSED: GOP debaters ‘really don’t have much else to say’

hillaryHillary Clinton said Thursday that the Republican presidential debate was devoid of substance.
Speaking in an exclusive interview with CNN’s Wolf Blitzer on “The Situation Room,” Clinton chalked up the debate to “the usual back-and-forth — political attacks, the kinds of things you say when you’re on a debate stage and you really don’t have much else to say.”
She blasted the GOP candidates in the 2016 presidential race for failing to address student debt, equal pay for women and income inequality.
“I don’t really pay a lot of attention to this kind of rhetoric that heats up the debate stage. They’re all trying to vie for more attention from, obviously, the Republican Party,” Clinton said.
Clinton was a prime target at the debate hosted by CNN at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library. GOP 2016 hopefuls, including Carly Fiorina, Chris Christie and front-runner Donald Trump, attacked her record as secretary of state as well as her trustworthiness.
On Thursday, Clinton’s team seized on the candidates’ comments, particularly their virulent opposition to Planned Parenthood, the controversial women’s health organization that provides cancer screenings, health services and abortions.
In a written statement to reporters, Clinton said the Republican debate continued the party’s “race to the bottom on women’s health and women’s rights” because “every single candidate on stage has pledged to defund Planned Parenthood if they become president.”
She added, “Repeating false statements doesn’t make them true, no matter how many times you do it.”
But Clinton took it a step further Thursday, calling on House Speaker John Boehner to not shut down the government over Planned Parenthood.
Some Republicans in Congress have pushed for Congress to tie defunding Planned Parenthood to funding the government, thou some House GOP leaders are actively exploring a plan that would target the organization through a stand-alone measure, not tying it to the budget.
“Speaker Boehner and his colleagues have a job to do, and they should do it,” Clinton said. “Here’s my message to them: don’t attack women’s health care. And don’t shut down the government.”
Thursday’s live interview comes as the Clinton campaign has said it is going to try to showcase the former secretary of state’s more spontaneous and charming side, as her early lead in most polls has slid. Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders has even taken the lead in some surveys in the key primary states of Iowa and New Hampshire.
Wednesday night, Clinton appeared on “The Tonight Show,” where she let Jimmy Fallon tug on her hair to prove it was real and participated in a sketch where she was interviewed by “Donald Trump” — as played by Fallon.
And last week, Clinton sat down for a series of interviews in which she apologized for the decision to use a private email server while at the State Department — an effort by her campaign to try to put the lingering, damaging issue behind it.
The former secretary of state is traveling in New Hampshire on Thursday, where she received the endorsement of the state’s governor, Maggie Hassan.



As Republican presidential candidates lay into his record, President Barack Obama on Wednesday chalked up the attacks to expected election-year politics but said there was “nothing particularly patriotic” about their rhetoric. 
“Despite the perennial doom and gloom that I guess is inevitably part of a presidential campaign, America is winning right now,” Obama said at a meeting of the Business Roundtable in Washington. “America is great right now. We can do even better.”
He cited job creation, the rising stock market and millions of Americans who now have health insurance as examples of a successful presidential run.
“You wouldn’t know any of this if you were listening to the folks seeking this office that I occupy,” the President told the group of American chief executives.
“In the echo chamber that is presidential politics, everything is dark and everything is terrible,” he said. “They don’t seem to offer many solutions to the disasters they perceive, but they’re quick to tell you who to blame. There’s nothing particularly patriotic or American about talking down America, especially when we stand as one of the few sources of economic strength in the world.”
Obama said it was imperative that Republicans in Congress pass a government spending measure before the end-of-month deadline to avoid a shutdown, calling the standoff over funding for Planned Parenthood “bad policymaking.”
