Dnc 2016

A look at day 3 of the DNC, from flag burning to peaceful protests.
On the penultimate night of the Democratic National Convention, party leaders did their best to rally support for Hillary Clinton. But there was still dissension in the ranks.

"Don't vote Hillary, she's killing black people," some protesters chanted.
A large part of covering the DNC, I have learned, involves interviewing people with whom you wildly disagree while somehow keeping blood from pouring out of your eyes.
Clinton's nomination came after what began as a procedural, by-the-books roll call that turned into a near revolt by Bernie Sanders supporters.
