Stephen Colbert

Republican Convention

In the home of the Rock’N’Roll Hall of Fame, Republicans have descended on Cleveland to nominate their own reality star for president and the process is unlike any convention in history.

To start the day off, there was an unusual commotion that took the Internet by storm last night. Stephen Colbert, the guy that took over for David Letterman and is tanking in the ratings, decided to take over the mic at the convention.

Stephen Colbert, dressed as a character from the Hunger Games movies, stormed the stage and started the “Hunger for power games”. He was then quickly escorted off the stage.

Here is a video that captured the moment.

When the convention really kicked off, celebrities like Duck Dynasty’s Willie Robertson, Happy Days start Scott Baio got the crowd excited about supporting Donald.

Most of the speakers spoke directly to the theme of the night; “Make America Safe Again”. People like Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, Navy SEAL Marcus Luttrell, and veterans activist Jason Beardsley gave moving and passionate speeches.

One of the more powerful speeches came from former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani.

Rudy was adamant about the compassion of Donald Trump and revealed that Donald gave to many in the city that were in need anonymously. He said he is tired of the defamation of character coming from the left. The Donald Trump that Rudy knows is “a good man”.

The night ended with Melania Trump speaking and winning over the crowd and pundits on cable news. Then this morning, we find out that large parts of her speech were stolen almost directly from Michelle Obama’s speech in 2008.

Despite how well Melania did last night, she is taking a beating today on cable news and especially from the every hateful trolls on social media.

See the similarities for yourself below.

The speech’s similarities are striking and somebody is going to have to answer to this, but it will pass soon.

Outside of the convention the protests were largely local white college students and there were only two arrests. Traditionally, the protests are worse on the final night, but nothing real noteworthy from the protestors.

The stage is shiny; the show had star appeal and a little bit of drama. It was what we expected.

Day two we will see Mitch McConnell, Paul Ryan, Dr. Ben Carson, Kimberlin Brown and for the first time, Donald Trump Jr. will take the stage at the end of the night. The theme for the second day is , “Make America Work Again”.

If you are looking for a quick recap of the speeches, here is a good montage put together by the LA Times.

Bill O'Reilly

Bill O’Reilly is the biggest thing in cable news. His show The O’Reilly Factor has been number one for over a decade and has over two million people watch his show each night on Fox News. He is a bestselling author and he isn’t afraid to talk to anyone!

When the cable news giant decided to be a guest on the Late Show with Stephen Colbert, things got heated.

Everyone knows that Stephen Colbert, the former Comedy Central star, is not what you would call a conservative. He is a major voice for the progressive movement.

You would expect Bill and Colbert to clash, but they didn’t. They took some jabs at each other, but the Late Show host seemed earnestly interested in learning why Trump is doing so well.

Bill tried to explain it, and he got heated. Not at Colbert as you would expect, but at the Republican establishment. Bill uses “Kate’s Law” as an example to explain why the Republican leadership is failing and causing Trump to rise in the polls.

Stephen is respectful and listens the whole time, but Bill is visibly upset. He is angry and frustrated at the Republican leadership and that sentiment is shared by so many on the right.

Watch the clip with the Colbert and O’Reilly exchange and see why so many Americans feel the same way.
