Here's How The Internet Reacted To The Second Day Of The DNC

SMDH, did you hear that they're remaking "President Clinton" with an all-female cast?

This is not the BuzzFeed News write-up of the convention as it happened. That's in the link up there.

PREVIOUSLY ON THE CONVENTIONS: It became obvious that Hillary Clinton was going to be the Democratic Party nominee for president.

This girl wanted to be an astronaut; NASA told her they didn't accept girls. Tonight we nominate her for President.

And, let's be honest, there were some definite questions to be raised about the whole thing.

Two days in and not a single story about how one of the DNC delegates is a sentient bottle of iced tea?! #DNCinPHL

There were also some pretty cool moments.

In the year of her birth, women were still fighting for the right to vote. If you think I'm not crying you're wrong.

And some pretty damn emotional moments.

But, in the end, Bernie Sanders said that Hillary Clinton should be the nominee.

Bernie Sanders takes the mic: "I move that Hillary Clinton be selected as the nominee of the Democratic Party." https://t.co/4AHrFQ2m5m

Can't believe they're remaking President Clinton with women.

And a bunch of Sanders supporters walked out and took to the streets in protest for the rest of the night.

As one does.

I hear you, Sanders supporters who plan to vote Trump. One time I asked for Coke but they only had Pepsi, so I set fire to my head.

Anyways, back on the convention stage, things were HAPPENING.

Now that's how you exit a stage #DemsInPhilly

¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Elizabeth Banks, of Hunger Games fame, was the MC for the evening.

Not that she was the only celebrity on tap for the DNC that night.

But the most emotional parts of night two of the DNC had nothing to do with "star power" and were provided by the mothers of children who died due to shootings/police violence.

That is, if you got to see them speak. 👀

Who wants to guess which network did not show the Mothers of the Movement talking during the #DNCinPHL

And survived this blast from the past.

Anyways, the keynote speaker for Tuesday night was Bill Clinton — and people were PUMPED.

Mostly.

aide: Wow, Trump's convention speech was even longer than Bill's HRC: god don't tell him, he can't kn- WJC: TOO LATE I'MMA SPEAK FOREVER

Kind of.

(Bill Clinton is notorious for extremely long speeches.)

Word just went out that there's no advance text on @billclinton speech. Because there's a good chance he is still writing it.

However, once POTUS #42 took the stage, everyone perked right up.

The Big Dog is in the House. #DemsInPhilly

Seriously. This whole speech was Bill Clinton's more than semi-political love letter to his wife of 40 years.

Bill Clinton, in his own telling

Not that he didn't gloss over some crucial parts of his presidency and marriage.

Bill is skipping some things that happened between 1995-1998.

The remarks were delivered in typical Bill Clinton style.

Bill Clinton gently grabs the forearm of 20,000 delegates as they attempt to get up. "Hold on a second, I promise this is goin' somewhere."

But also, it's the first time dude has given this sort of family speech for a WOMAN running for the highest office in the land.

"her water broke": words said about a presidential nominee never until now. #DemsInPhilly

If you hear a young couple yelling "Bernie!" during this speech they probably look something like...

💅

"Is he still talking about the same wife?" - Donald Trump

Also, who knew Bill Clinton was a fan of Police Academy?

Bill Clinton: 1st US president to have watched all 6 Police Academy movies back-to-back.

The night was concluded with a very exuberant Meryl Streep.

And then Hillary Clinton literally broke a glass ceiling because of course she did.

I mean.

"If there any little girls out there ... I may become first woman president but one of you is next" -Hillary

Look at this.

"How did Hillary know we were watching?" #DemsInPhilly

But at the end of the day, being bad at using a gavel seems to be the most bipartisan thing in America.

Fudge forgot the gavel. AGAIN! #DemsInPhilly

Here's what's coming for you tomorrow.

See you then!
