What I, at least, thought was the highest of the high points at the 2016 DNC:
Michelle Obama: "Barack and I... try to guide and protect our girls through the challenges of this unusual life in the spotlight, how we urge them to ignore those who question their father’s citizenship or faith.
How we insist that the hateful language they hear from public figures on TV does not represent the true spirit of this country.
How we explain that when someone is cruel or acts like a bully, you don’t stoop to their level.
No, our motto is: when they go low, we go high!...
Josh Marshall: Things Are Getting Very Weird:

Meanwhile, when asked about the Clinton campaign's claim about Russian complicity in the DNC email hack, a Kremlin spokesman replied: “Mr. Trump Jr. has already strongly responded."
