OK...so we are in Cleveland covering the Republican National Convention. This should be bringing together the biggest and brightest minds in politics...right? Guess again. The headlines from Day 1 of the RNC...well, let's just say you can't make this stuff up. Seriously... I have thought about what possible crazy things could happen on DAY 1 OF THE RNC....and I couldn't make this stuff up on my best day. So here are some of the "highlights" of Day 1 from Cleveland....
- BIGGEST STORY: Melania Trump gave her first major speech of the campaign...and it appears that it was Michelle Obama's speech. Now, I want to go on record to defend Melania for a second...SHE DID NOT SIGN UP FOR THIS CRAP! I am sure that when she married The Donald, she knew that she would be in the media spot light. Her husband is a bombastic, loud, and flamboyant businessman and TV personality. There was going to be the occasional paparazzi rush...or even the less annoying interviews on Entertainment Tonight. BUT WHEN YOUR HUSBAND IS RUNNING FOR PRESIDENT...this is an ugly game that is played with the media. You are in the cross hairs...everything that you do...everything that you say...everything that you wear (remember the Twitter Handle "@obamasbrownsuit"). Again, SHE DID NOT SIGN UP FOR THIS!!! So, I think that the media is going a little OVER THE TOP (which is NEVER the case with the 24 Hour News Animal).
- BIGGEST CELEBRITY SPEAKER OF THE DAY (OTHER THAN THE DONALD): This one is a toss-up...between Former "Charles In Charge" Teen Heart-throb Scott Baio or that guy with the beard from Duck Dynasty (oh, wait...they all have beards). I'm going with Chachi on this one!
- BEST SPEECH OF THE NIGHT: No question, America's Mayor...Rudolph Giuliani. It not only got the crowd FIRED-UP...but it made everyone ask the question "CAN'T WE HAVE HIM AS OUR NOMINEE?" Great job, Mr. Mayor.
- MOST AWKWARD MOMENT OF DAY 1: While the mother of one of the brave men who lost their lives during the attack on the American Consulate in Benghazi was giving an emotional speech on the main stage of the RNC, Donald Trump decides that would be the PERFECT time to do what some are now calling a "TRUMP PHONE DRIVE-BY". Proving it is all about the Donald, yet again.
So that is JUST DAY 1...here in Cleveland. I have to admit, I think Sen. Sasse is missing out....this is the BIGGEST DUMPSTER FIRE I have seen in a while...he should have brought his kids here.
