Donald J. Trump Verified account
Wow, Ted Cruz got booed off the stage, didn’t honor the pledge! I saw his speech two hours early but let him speak anyway. No big deal!
‘Late Show’ host Stephen Colbert on Monday’s live show brought his ‘Hungry for Power Games’ segment to Cleveland for the Republican National Convention.‘The red carpet of course is here to hide the rivers of blood that will eventually pour down from the cornucopia – when Donald Trump flanked by his two eunuchs takes the stage’ Colbert said from the floor of the Quicken Loans Arena.‘By eunuchs I mean Paul Ryan and Reince Priebus – who clearly checked their balls at the door this election’.(cont..)
The celebrity lineup ‘is basically everyone who blew their Sharknado audition’ tweeted Richard Kadrey.
The convention has barely begun and comedians and pundits alike are already commenting on the insanity that will be the Republican National Convention this week.Last night, dressed as the host of the Hungry for Power Games – Stephen Colbert stormed the stage and posted a picture in costume.(cont..)(ed:..link has some tweets – and it is only just beginning..and a note to readers: i promise i’ll try and bring you the best stuff from the upcoming deluge – at least some of it – anyway..)
Three Dog Night or whatever surviving members of that mid-‘70s chart-topping band make up the current iteration wished joy to the fishes in the deep blue sea.
(ed:..heh..!..they always were a crap-band – ‘joy to the fishes’..indeed..)
Republicans danced and drank.
A nearly full moon hung in the sky over the Lake Erie waterfront – a picture-perfect example of the cheerful bland ‘downtown entertainment district’ now found in almost every American city.
After the concert ended we watched a spectacular fireworks show – better than the one I saw over the Hudson River on the Fourth of July.It was almost endearing – almost reassuring.Attendees at the Republican National Convention host committee’s big welcome party on Sunday night did not arrive bearing shotguns or wearing XXL white T-shirts hand-inscribed with puzzling messages about Muslims or the government or abortion. (OK I did see one guy like that.)It was the same assemblage of sand-blasted Americans in ill-fitting golf attire and faintly sinister young men in Brooks Brothers suits that you could find at thousands of fine-dining establishments and country clubs and alumni mixers clear across the middle of the middle of our great land.Conceivably not your cuppa Joe or mine – but just about as baby-back-ribs wholesome as something can be.(cont..)
The world is once again safe . . . for comedy.
We have desperately missed Jon Stewart during this election season — but he’s coming back next week to cover the Republican National Convention.
Vulture reports that Stewart will reunite with longtime partner in crime Stephen Colbert next week to offer coverage of the RNC on The Late Show.
Stewart will also stay on to cover the DNC a week later.
