Anyone else watching this crap? What are your first impressions?

We just turned it on- my initial thought is ....Lots of empty seats.

Also, Duck Dynasty guy isn't saying anything. "Donald Trump will have your back."

he could have at least cleaned up for the night. He needs to comb his hair, trim the beard and wear a tie. At least former Texas Governor had on a red tie and a blue & white striped shirt.

24. I think I lost a few brain cells from watching this "Convention"

 

I don't think I can stomach watching any more. Frankly, I find pretty much the entire GOP to be insufferable and idiotic, and Trump embodies all of the party's negative traits. Honestly, I don't see how Trump even has a chance in the fall. He's pretty much despised by every person with common sense.

I feel bad for her, but this is not helping her. As a matter of fact Trump has exploited her pain and kept her delusional lies going.

Why is it that they never blame the actual perpetrators for Benghazi?? First it was Obama and now it's Hillary.

Unreal

I've never in my life seen so many delusional, ignorant, pathetic people in the same room, spewing the same garbage. These are grown men & women who claim to be Christians participating in a convention based on hate & lies & it sickens me to my very soul. I believe now more than ever that Republicanism is as detrimental to this country as any other hate group or cult.
