She is going to clean his fucking clock. There will be nothing left of him when she’s done. I don’t know what she’s on, I really don’t, but I want some of it.

The people behind him are the same people we’re always facing: The ones who are mad and the ones who are scared and the ones who are right to be, but for that they’ve decided to listen to the GOP tell them who’s to blame. This is something, we’ve seen plenty of.

It’s fearsome and it’s roaring, but we’ve fought this fight before.
