Recap of the Dumpster fire ... AKA RNC: Day 1

July 19, 2016

Conventions normally always include a lot of news and pomp and circumstance. This tends to be the time the general public begins to pay attention to politics. Reince Prebus gaveled the Republican National Convention and off we went. Day 1 was painful to watch ... Here's the highlights:


ROLL CALL VOTE!!!!!
Things got fiery on the floor. Chaos erupted on Monday as never-Trump forces demanded a roll-call vote on the event's rules. The bid was unsuccessful. We saw dueling chants of "Roll call vote" and "USA" from each respective sides. The chairman used voice vote he judged favored the existing rules prevailed. Colorado's delegation literally walked off of the floor in protest amid the chaos.




WHITE SUPREMACY
Before the prime time line up ... the surrogates were already going off the rails. Just watch MSNBC panel revolt after Republican Representative with Steve King says only Europe and the US contributed to civilization:




PAT SMITH


Patricia Smith, the mother of one of the four Americans killed in the 2012 attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, said that she considers Hillary Clinton responsible for the death of her son. “I blame Hillary Clinton personally for the death of my son,” Smith said during a tearful speech at the Republican National Convention on Monday.

Seeing a family's grief being exploited was horrific. It was so incredibly uncomfortable to watch. Not because of the non sense Mrs.Smith was spouting against Hillary but because she was clearly unhinged. Plus the crocodile tears from the crowd?

In fairness, the shoe will be on the other foot next week for Republicans will feel the same when "the mothers of the movement" speak at the DNC. However we bet they won't be unglued.


DAVID CLARK
Then Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke offered started shouting #blacklivesmatter as a way to show police officers around the country his love. The crowd went wild.



He then went on to penly praise the officers who were acquitted in the murder of citizen Freddie Gray in Baltimore – to raucous cheers. That's right. We have a party who cheers cops murdering our citizens.


RUDY GIULIANI
The former NYC Mayor's speech was perhaps the best received speech. We don't have much more to say other than ... Mr.Giuliani has lost his ever loving mind!




MELANIA TRUMP
The most anticipated speech of the night was Melania speech. She had one job. Get personal and make Trump seem more human and softer. The problem is not only did she not do that for The Donald, Melania straight up plagiarized from Michelle Obama's speech at the 2008 Democratic National convention.



The Trump campaign is of course refuting the charges. Which is just insulting to our intelligence. The video speaks for itself so we're not buying yet another lie they're trying to sell.



The rolling dumpster fire rolls on ... What's on tap for tonight?
