DIDN'T LIKE THE UR FOR 7 YEARS EITHER:

Conservatives Did Not Like Hillary's Speech, Did Like Her Convention (Jeremy Stahl, 7/30/16, Slate)

Conservatives--those who have not yet embraced Donald Trump--have been giving the Democratic National Convention largely positive reviews this week. On Monday, Michelle Obama earned plaudits from conservatives for a speech full of "heart, poetry and grace." On Wednesday, President Barack Obama was compared by conservatives to Ronald Reagan. The final day was more of a mixed bag--Hillary Clinton's big speech faced heavy criticism, but other key parts of the program brought longtime Republicans to tears. Overall, the response was fairly consistent: This had been a good week for the Democratic Party. [...]

The biggest success of the night, though, according to conservatives was the stirring testimonial of Khizr Khan, a Muslim American father whose son died a war hero in Iraq.
