Normally the conventions are boring affairs. The powers in charge crush the average people, violate their own rules (like they did on Monday in Cleveland), and never stick to a schedule so working people go to bed before the good speakers come on late at night.
Didn’t they learn anything from the declining MLB prime time ratings?
Thus when Melania Trump spoke on Monday night, I missed the entire plagiarizing portion of the speech which was suddenly a stupid scandal. Melania is a charming woman of great intelligence so when they Trump campaign decided to cover for her with a BS story about how she wrote the speech and there was no outside help, I figured the original speechwriter who pranked her and the campaign by making Mrs. Trump look bad was already being introduced to some of Donald’s former Sicilian construction company partners from New Jersey. Someone is about to become part of a parking lot or chum for some fish off the coast of New Jersey.
After all, Tony Soprano did take care of business in a very efficient manner, right?
So what is my favorite Republican Convention moment of all time? This:
The mole working inside the Trump campaign for Hillary had the balls (it could be a Kaitlyn Jenner type after all) to sign the speech off with a big “FU” to Trump and the Republicans. While I am admittedly no fan of Trump or the Republicans, Hillary is equally as bad and twice as evil so to assume they have moles inside the Trump campaign is not a reach.
For those who are not culturally aware, here is the Wikipedia definition of what is happened to the Trumps on Monday:
Rickrolling, alternatively rick-rolling, is a prank and an Internet meme involving an unexpected appearance of the music video for the 1987 Rick Astley song “Never Gonna Give You Up”. The meme is a type of bait and switch using a disguised hyperlink. Those led to the music video believing that they were accessing some unrelated material are said to have been rickrolled. The trend has extended to disruptive or humorous appearances of the song in other situations, such as a live appearance of Astley himself in the 2008 Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade in New York.
And to my haters and readers don’t worry:
I’m never going to give you up or let you down either.
