Bill Clinton on Trump: "If you want a president who spends hours watching TV ... he's your man"

Former President Bill Clinton slammed President Trump saying, "if you want a president who defines the job as spending hours a day watching TV and zapping people on social media, he's your man," during Tuesday night's Democratic National Convention.

What he's saying: "Denying, distracting and demeaning works great if you're trying to entertain or inflame. In a real crisis, it collapses like a house of cards. COVID doesn't respond to any of that. To beat it, you have to actually go to work and deal with the facts."

  • "You know what Donald Trump will do with four more years: blame, bully and belittle. And you know what Joe Biden will do: build back better. It's Trump's 'us vs. them America' against Joe Biden's America."
