Look for this year’s RNC Convention to take on the feel of President Camacho’s first speech from the movie, “Idiocracy.”
Senior advisor to Trump, Barry Bennett, has suggested that in breaking with tradition, where the nominee speaks on the last night of the convention, convention-goers may be treated to a nightly pep talk from the gilded toad.
“I think when it comes to the program a lot of us feel that we could juice up the format just a little,” Bennett told Masters in Politics. “More entertaining, more interesting. I don’t know why the candidate only speaks on acceptance night, why shouldn’t he speak every night from a different city? How come we are not doing broadcasts on Facebook or Google, why are we just relying on 45 minutes of network television time?”
Yes. That is what the convention has been missing all these years. It needs pizazz! Sex appeal! Maybe we can have a Jell-O wrestling match between Trump strumpets, Laura Ingraham and Ann Coulter.
I’m personally looking forward to the extreme wrestling-styled cage match battle between Trump’s personal gimps, Eric Bolling and Sean Hannity.
Of course, Rush Limbaugh will be the announcer for all these events.
Do you think I’m being facetious?
Maybe slightly – but only slightly. This is what the GOP has been reduced to with Trump at the helm. He is not a serious or even remotely rational man. He is a caricature. He is Ronald McDonald, Burger King, and the lady from the old Wendy’s commercials who would ask, “Where’s the beef?”
He’s just a face, so putting on a show is really all he knows. If you’re looking for substance, it’s going to be a long, barren journey.
In the days following his win in Indiana, several top Republicans have said they won’t attend the convention in Cleveland. Former Presidents George H.W. Bush and George W. Bush both said they would not be involved in the process, as did former candidate and Florida Gov. Jeb Bush.
Former presidential candidates Mitt Romney and Lindsey Graham also said they wouldn’t attend the convention.
You can count these men among those who don’t enjoy watching train wrecks.
