Gabrielle Giffords

Leads INSPIRING Pledge of Allegiance at DNC

9/6/2012 5:08 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF



Gabrielle Giffords just appeared on stage at the Democratic National Convention and led the crowd in the Pledge of Allegiance ... and the crowd erupted in an emotionally charged applause.

Giffords -- who is still recovering from the gunshot wound she suffered to her head during a shooting while meeting with constituents at a supermarket in Tucson in January 2011 -- was escorted to the stage by Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz.

While Giffords had some trouble enunciating some of the words, she finished strong ... sporting a big smile while the crowd cheered her on.

After she finished, the crowd chanted her name ... with some people shedding proud tears.

Check out the clip -- pretty awesome.

The night before the Dems shouted down adding God to their platform.

Sappy, sensational nonsense.
Nothing new with the liberals.
Too bad the GOP has such a polarizing candidate.
Now we get to look forward to 4 more years of this crap.

setting aside the politics, she is a woman who went through a helluva an ordeal and came out shining - after so much hard work and effort on her part (and a great support system). you don't have to like her, but she should be commended for bravery to move forward.

Wow becoming a democrat is not good for a person. Just last month Giffords was a young black girl bringing home the gold for the gymnastics team and now she is an old white woman. Killing all the unborn babies probably just eats a person up at night and ages them while they are sleeping.

Wow, becoming a democrat is not good for you... just last month she was a little black girl winning the gold medal in gymnastics and now she is just an old white lady full of hate. I guess killing unborn babies does that to your soul.

Smh at some of you horrible people commenting on here. I mean, really? You all are horrible, nasty, vile, disgusting human beings. I'm just going to say may God bless each and every one of you that are making fun of this woman and pray that nothing horrific happens to you or one of your family members.

If America re-elects this pitiful liar Joe Biden and his country-destroying boss then we are screwed beyond all repair. I am so afraid this guy will seal America's fate that I can't sleep. He is Vladimir Putin's best dream come true - America's self implosion. Even if I ever agreed with their their policies I could never become a Democrat because they have just proven they are lower than filth. God help us.
