So Much Winning! The RNC Convention is the Best Thing on TV This Year
Even jaded and cynical viewers are jumping on Twitter to talk about the fact that the 2020 RNC is the best political convention they’ve ever seen. They tuned in out of curiosity to see whether it would be a giant Schiff-show like the Joementum train wreck last week – and they can’t turn away. It’s that good.
Part of it is the fact that Donald Trump knows how to put on a good show. But more importantly, the Republican Party under President Trump’s leadership has a visionary plan for the future of America that involves more than calling everyone a racist and burning down a car dealership.
We know that the convention is off to a roaring start based on the fake news media’s headlines about it. They must have received their talking points from the Democrat Party once again. Check out the headlines:
CNN: Trump kicks off first day of RNC with dark warning
Fresno Bee: GOP convention showcases rising stars, dark warnings
Washington Post: Republican convention speakers share dark vision of Democrats and praise Trump’s character
ABC: GOP paints dark picture of future if Biden wins
The Guardian: Key takeaways from the first night of Republicans’ dark convention
Anchorage Daily News: GOP speakers push Trump’s dark view of Democrats
The Boston Globe: Republican convention speakers issue dark warnings on country’s future
But was there any darkness, media?! Help us understand!
My favorite headline – by far – had to be the one on Mother Jones’ coverage:
“How Badly Did They Want to Say the N-Word?”
Now that is a hot, HOT take on the RNC convention, especially considering the speakers on Day 1. Sudden GOP rock star Kim Klacik, the black woman running for Congress in Baltimore who now has the most-watched political ad of all time on YouTube, had a featured slot. So did Senator Tim Scott. So did NFL great Herschel Walker. So did a black Democrat lawmaker from Georgia, Rep. Vernon Jones, who has endorsed Trump. (Trading John Kasich to the Democrats for Vernon Jones was a great coaching move; team’s much better now.)
The decision to keep President Trump front-and-center throughout the convention has been a really smart move. The campaign commercial about the president bringing home more than 50 American hostages, held in some of the worst prisons in the worst countries in the world, will give you goosebumps if you watch it. But then in between the featured speakers at the RNC – here comes Trump!
The video of the president sitting down and visiting with those same released Americans is so powerful that it will bring a tear to your eye. It’s just one of the amazing accomplishments of this president that is downplayed or completely ignored by the fake news media. Want to know where it’s really dark, media morons? Inside a Turkish prison when you’re an American facing a 28-year prison sentence for a made-up crime.
The viewership for the RNC is off the charts. After just Day 1, it’s already blown the Democrats’ convention out of the water. On the first day of the DNC, during their party’s most popular speech of the week (Michelle Obama), C-SPAN viewership topped out at 79,000 people. For the first day of the RNC, 440,000 tuned in. The GOP under Trump is drawing six times the amount of viewership that the No Malarkey Kamalamania Festival of Fun drew.
There were a lot of great speeches during the convention. The McCloskeys from St. Louis talked about the Second Amendment and the dangers that a Biden administration represents to the suburbs. A Cuban exile spoke of the similarities between Joe Biden and the Democrat Party today, and brutal dictator Fidel Castro. He noted that Castro didn’t call himself a “communist,” but referred to himself as “a Roman Catholic” during his murderous rise to power. Congressman Jim Jordan (R-OH) spoke of President Trump’s amazing heart for people in an emotional and very personal speech.
The best event of the night by far was Donald Trump Jr.’s speech. I’ve seen a lot of his speeches over the past five years and I can honestly say, this was his best one to date. He tagged Joe Biden with a new nickname: Beijing Biden.
But more importantly, his speech fired everyone up. If you watched it, you’re probably ready to charge up Bunker Hill with a musket to take our country back from Black Lives Matter and Antifa. I’m right there with you. And sorry to have to break it to you, Dems – but Donald Trump Jr. is a future President of the United States if he wants the job.
This is a disaster for the Democrats. Trump and the GOP are putting on the greatest show on earth right now – and not even the fake news media can stop people from watching it. If you missed the first day or two of the convention, clear your schedule and don’t miss another minute of it. You won’t regret it.
