Republican party convention final night open thread. Update!


(So do we think that Melania learned her lesson and will be let out of her cage so that she can rejoin the rest of the family tonight?)

By the way apparently they are taking no chances with Trump's speech tonight.

Courtesy of TPM:

Donald Trump's campaign team is reportedly checking and rechecking the speech he will give Thursday at the Republican National Convention to make sure it isn't plagiarized, The New York Times reported. 

The Times reported that by early Tuesday, passages in Trump's speech that had been inspired by outside sources had to be rewritten or attributed.

Bummer! I was really hoping that we would hear a recycled version of President Obama's acceptance speech from 2008.

I always liked that speech.

Personally I think that after watching this slow motion train wreck disintegrate across my TV screen this week, that Hillary Clinton could stand at the podium all four nights of the Democratic convention making fart noises with her hands and STILL come off as far more classy than the Republicans have in their convention.

Actually I think this about summed up the GOP convention thus far.

"Sieg He....I mean Hi everybody." 
Nice catch there Laura Ingraham but we watched those old newsreels from Germany in the 1930's.

Jerry Springer made a rather obvious observation as well.
Yeah, I cannot even begin to imagine how more fucked up all of this could be, but at this point if Trump grabbed his daughter Ivanka right there on the stage and started banging her in front of the whole audience, like he has always wanted to, I would probably not be surprised.

Update:
So many lies in Trump's speech I can't keep up.

Update 2: Trump's attacks on Hillary over the e-mail server are not factually based.

Weak attack from Trump.

      Free.

      The band was from England.

      Four English blues rockers were the band Free.

      English band Free was signed to British guy Chris Blackwell's British record company Island Records.

      Island Records was founded in Jamaica in 1959 by three Englishmen.

      Island Records moved from Jamaica to London England in 1962.

      According to the Rock and Roll Hall of fame Englishman Chris Blackwell is "the single person most responsible for turning the world on to reggae music."

      Reggae music is Jamaica's national music.

      English label Island Records released many of Jamaican reggae superstar Bob Marley's top selling albums.

      Actually it was the same ol' I, I, I, ME, ME, ME interspersed with buzzword pandering.

      Remember, Donald is in MARKETING. So he knows his audience and he knows what they want to hear.

      So as long as he interjects some WALL, and JOBS, and SECURITY, he can talk about himself all he wants.

      It was meaningless, as he has no plan on how to implement any of it. Most of it can't.

      He's going to bring jobs and manufacturing back. How? With increasing regulations? He just promised to get rid of regulations so that we can frack and burn coal all we want. The jobs will be back but without regulation there will be no minimum wage. Well, since no one will PAY the price for those American made goods our citizens will just have to work for the same wages as those Chinese political prisoners and slum children in India.

      He can't deliver any of it. He doesn't care because he's just in it for the attention.

      No one else seems to care either.

      Those that know better just want him in so they can do whatever they want with a puppet President.

      The rest just don't care at all. He's not Hillary.

      Their features are most distracting, huge shoulders on Ivanka, tiny, tiny mouth on Tiffany, small heads and constant exposure to long legs. It is difficult to concentrate on what they are saying or doing instead of perusing their unusual appearances.

      Probably could be better handled with help from someone in the fashion and hair departments with real expertise.

      Don't know if Ivanka's boobs are her own but they resemble the huge boob job Melania got when she couldn't get modeling jobs so resorted to surgical additions, but denies it, though there is record of it from her agent at that time.

      Ivanka is being sued for copying shoe designs and three companies and a manufacturer she deals with are named in the suit.

      He is famous for saying that he's found in his 40 years at SNL that conservatives generally have a better sense of humor towards being comedically mocked than do liberals.

    So here it is. Bet Donald will slip and let out some profanity as he gets his egotistical high. He loves himself so much he'll probably just let it all hang out. He figures he's got it in the bad and now can be his true self. Donald thinks if he killed someone in NYC that voters would still love him and vote for him.

    I think that kind of sick self-love he demonstrates might just cause him to drop some speech bomb and sound like Adolph Hitler. I say this in earnest. I really think this guy is dangerous.

  29. Which frightened Republican was it that first tossed out that nonsense that Trump was Obama's 'fault?'

    In a backhanded way, he or she was right.

    The fact is America has already been 'made great again,' thanks to our beloved president. His astonishing and heroic job of cleaning the mess left by predecessor will stand any judgment of time, but at this moment, might well feel too well done.

    It is only because of Obama's love and toil in the name of this country, that enables Republicans to willfully lose their minds, recklessly and heedlessly proffering a candidate several fold more know-nothing and dangerous than Bush.

    The Republican nominee just got owned by a fellow billionaire.

    To begin the Late Show on Wednesday night, Stephen Colbert introduced Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban for a special “Take The Gloves Off” segment.

    Cuban bragged that he is twice the billionaire that Trump is and then set out to roast him.

    And Cuban did NOT hold back as he dropped burn after burn with Colbert popping in and out to chime in with his own hilarious quips.

    “Donald, the gloves are off. Speaking of gloves, I got you a pair for your birthday. You’re a child’s medium, right?” Cuban began.

    “Donald, I’ve got a travel tip for you. When you’re going through customs and they ask if you’ve got anything to declare, try not to blurt out ‘bankruptcy,’” he continued.

    “That’s a billionaire bitch slap,” Colbert observed.

    ”Your companies fail so often, you must’ve gone to business school at Trump University,” Cuban said, to which Colbert replied, “Oh, Donald ― he just dropped you like one of your first two wives.”

    Cuban then dropped the hammer on Trump.

    “Donald, do you know that to be a billionaire, you have to have the billion part in your bank account. Not just the air.”

    And finally:

    “Donald, the only way you’re worth $10 billion is if I paid you $9.5 billion to…wash my balls!”

    Here’s the video via YouTube.

    Why I just quit the Republican Party

    Here's why I bailed, quit, and jumped ship:

    First, Trump's boorish, selfish, puerile, and repulsive character, combined with his prideful ignorance, his off-the-cuff policy making, and his neo-fascistic tendencies make him the most divisive and scary of any serious presidential candidate in American history. He is precisely "the man the founders feared," in Peter Wehner's memorable phrase. I want to be no part of this.

    ...Finally, Trump is "an ignorant, amoral, dishonest and manipulative, misogynistic, philandering, hyper-litigious, isolationist, protectionist blowhard" in the words of Republican donor Michael K. Vlock. That charming list of qualities means supporting Trump translates into never again being able to criticize a Democrat on the basis of character. Or, in personal terms: How can one look at oneself in the mirror?

    And so, with Trump's formal nomination, I bailed.

    SO very disappointed in Ivanka for her hypocrisy. She is a republican all of a sudden but still speaks exactly like the progressive democrat sh really is. Do you and your greedy family not have enough attention? Do you honestly think your megalomaniac dad should.be presidentt? People who have admired you over the years know the answer. You know the answer. The right thing would have been to speak to him as loving, concerned children and disuade him from thinking he had the qualification, the intelligence, the compassion, the selflessness to run... But, of course, even as the favorite child , the one he might gave listened to, this probably never crossed your mind.
