It should be great, former producers of the Apprentice are expected to be part of production team.   :clap:  

The first half of the convention season in US politics has played out.

 Last week, the Democrats held their nominating convention, officially recognising former vice-president Joe Biden as their candidate for the November election.

 This week, from Tuesday to Friday AEST, Republicans will get their turn to nominate their candidate, US President Donald Trump, and make their own case to American voters. The events kick off at 9:30am AEST each day. Because of the coronavirus pandemic, the Republican National Convention will be held almost entirely online, but there will be more in-person events than the Democratic counterpart.

 Republican officials have promised there will be a "nightly" surprise. It's also expected that Trump is going to speak live on every night of the convention in some capacity, with former producers from The Apprentice involved in the planning.

 Almost everything will be livestreamed, so it's never been easier for US politics junkies in Australia to watch along. Here are the key speeches to tune in for this week.

Day One: Republican leaders get the spotlight
 
The theme of the first night will be "Land of Promise".

Promising to build a wall and make Mexico pay for it, promising to drain the swamp, promising to balance the budget?

Just over 300 Republican delegates (instead of the usual several thousand) from across America have still gathered in the host city of Charlotte and will participate in the Roll Call.

 It will also feature lots of speeches from the public stars of the Republican party including Representative Matt Gaetz, Representative Jim Jordan (who shot to prominence during Trump's impeachment trial), and Republican National Committee chairwoman Ronna McDaniel.

Former UN ambassador Nikki Haley and Donald Trump Jr will also appear. Both Haley and Trump Jr feature often in polls of Republicans for the 2024 presidential campaign, so the evening will give both the traditional chance to establish themselves as the heir apparent to the President.It's also been confirmed that Mark and Patricia McCloskeya couple who waved guns at Black Lives Matter protesters, will also speak on the first evening.

 Day Two: Three Trumps, but the first lady will be the star On the second night, the program will focus on America as a "Land of Opportunity".

Melania the whore from Slovenia has taken full advantage of the "Land of Opportunity" and Donald doesn't even know it.

 The major speaker of the night will be first lady Melania Trump. She's expected to deliver her speech from the newly renovated White House Rose Garden.  In 2016, the first lady courted plenty of controversy when her speech appeared to plagiarise several sections from Michelle Obama's 2008 Democratic Convention speech.

 She's one of three Trumps that will speak on day two. The President's children Eric and Tiffany are also set to appear. 

 Nick Sandmann, the high school student who went viral in an encounter with a Native American activist at a Right to Life march, is also slated to appear. 

Day Three: Military might takes the stage

It's too bad Trump is draft dodger. 

"Land of Heroes" will be the theme of the third evening, and plenty of speakers and settings will reflect that theme.

 Representative Dan Crenshaw, a former Navy SEAL who was a star candidate for the Republicans at the 2018 midterm elections will get a speaking slot, as well as South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem, who shot to stardom in the same election.

 Former acting director of National Intelligence Richard Grenell will keep up the military focus of the night, as will Iowa senator and combat veteran Joni Ernst, who was floated as a potential running mate for Trump in 2016.

As is tradition, Vice-President Mike Pence will close out the penultimate evening of the convention. 

 The Vice-President will speak from Fort McHenry in Baltimore, a place with plenty of significance to the American story.

 Fort McHenry was the site of a crucial battle between the Americans and the British in 1814, a battle that would later inspire Francis Scott Key to write the poem that eventually became "The Star-Spangled Banner".

Day Four: Donald Trump closes out the convention

 Set to the theme of "Land of Greatness" — borrowing from the President's famous election slogan — the final night of the convention will be all about the "talent in chief", according to Republican aides who spoke to the New York Times.

 The speakers of the night are going to highlight Trump's achievements in office, with Alice Johnson (the woman whose prison sentence was commuted by the President after lobbying from Kim Kardashian) and the parents of Kayla Mueller(Mueller was a humanitarian worker killed by ISIS) given a speaking slot.

 Trump's personal lawyer and frequent defender in the media, Rudy Giuliani, will also speak, as will Trump's daughter Ivanka Trump (it means Barron Trump will be the only one of the President's children not to speak, but he is only 14 years old).

And to close out the night, Trump will deliver his acceptance speech.

 The President will deliver his address from the South Lawn of the White House, and House and Senate Republicans have reportedly been invited to watch. The choice of venue has been criticised by Democrats, who say it violates the Hatch Act (a rule that bans federal government employees, except the president and vice-president, from engaging in political activity).

 The US Office of Special Counsel has said the Trump can deliver the speech from the White House.

I continue to be impressed by how easily and rapidly you cultists can be reprogrammed from trump declaring until a few months ago that he and Xi are BFFs.  Now, China is the latest in a long line of boogeymen that trump uses to keep his herd trembling and obedient.  I will remind you of when your flabby brat was insisting that Xi was doing a very good job and being very transparent in dealing with the virus.


BTW, simp, the Dem convention is over, and Xi was not a part of it.  Perhaps you should put a little more effort into your no-pride I-know-you-are's.

Oh good God. Ann found a disparaging  article about the first lady and she's running with it since she can't come up with an original thought on her own.
Have we reached the ultimate stage of absurdity where some people are held responsible for things that happened before they were born, while other people are not held responsible for what they themselves are doing today?

China was later found to be lying about 911*40!

Trump **** an immigrant nightly and has given her hundreds of millions of dollars to play with. He has done more for brown Americans in 3 years than Obama or Clinton did in 16.

Uh huh.  trump realized he had been suckered just about the time he felt he needed a scapegoat for the incompetence that left us so much more devastated by the virus than was pretty much every other country on earth.  trump has never had a problem throwing friends under the bus, when he thought it was necessary to protect his flabby ***.

Making her the world's most expensive hooker, but you are impressed that trump's career as an inheritor enabled him to afford the soft-core porn model.
