Eva Longoria well and truly owned Donald Trump during her Democratic National Convention speech last night.
The Mexican-American actress slammed Trump for his anti-Mexico sentiments and previous racial remarks on Monday night in Philadelphia – and she certainly didn’t hold back.
“I’m from a small town in South Texas, and if you know your history, Texas used to be part of Mexico.
“I’m ninth generation American. My family never crossed a border; the border crossed us,” she said.
“When Donald Trump calls us criminals and rapists, he’s insulting American families. My father is not a criminal or a rapist, in fact, he’s a United States veteran.
“When Trump cruelly mocked a disabled reporter, he was also mocking my special-needs sister Lisa and many like her.”
“When he said that a wife who works is a very dangerous thing, he not only insulted me, he insulted my mother who worked as a special-education teacher for 40 years and raised four children while being a wife.”
Eva Longoria spoke in support of Hillary Clinton alongside First Lady Michelle Obama, who delivered an incredibly moving speech that brought many in the crowd to tears.
Michelle managed to destroy Donald Trump’s presidential campaign without even mentioning his name, and reiterated that Hillary is the best candidate for the future of our children.
“Not Democrat or Republican. Not left or right. In this election and every election, it’s about who will have the power to shape our children for the next four or eight years of their lives.
“I am here tonight because in this election there is only one person who I trust with that responsibility. Only one person who I believe is truly qualified to be President of the United States, and that is our friend Hillary Clinton.”
“[That’s] the story of generations of people who felt the lash of bondage, the shame of servitude, the sting of segregation, but who kept on striving and hoping and doing what need to be done, so that today I wake up every morning in a house that was built by slaves and I watch my daughters – two beautiful, intelligent, black young women – playing with their dogs on the White House lawn.
“And because of Hillary Clinton, my daughters, and all our sons and daughters, now take for granted that a woman can be President of the United States.
The First Lady then slammed Trumps slogan ‘Make America Great’ by saying, “So don’t let anyone ever tell you this country isn’t great. That somehow we need to make it great again. This right now is the greatest country on Earth.
“And as my daughters prepare to set out into the world, I want a leader who is worthy of that truth. A leader who is worthy of my girls promise,” she added.
