might be passed over.

2. Yes, people will definitely notice.

If Trump can't get some top political talent to appear and speak for him at the convention, he will be terribly humiliated. That will be the way in which that convention will be remembered.

People will notice if each of his children and in-laws get valuable, prime-time slots. It will be ugly.

Would consider Sarah Palin "top political talent". I expect she's available.

6. Have they asked Clint Eastwood? He might be up for a reprise.

 



This time he could talk to the "HAIR" rather than the chair.

before they can shut him up.

26. Wolf Blitzer is in a permanent daze

I swear he's on some kind of tranquilizers. They pump him up full of Valium and send him out there. I've never seen a so-called news anchor be so disinterested in getting to the truth of a story, in follow-up questions, in confronting anyone with facts.

27. You will NEVER see dancing around the elephant like you'll see this summer in Cleveland.

This is what we were all hoping for when the circus car pulled out of the tent a year ago. NEVER did we believe we would be so fortunate as to see this complete reality star queen at the head of the garbage heap; but there he is....donald Drumpf. He brings all the racists, bigots, ignorant buffoons OUT of the closet for the whole world to see. Nice job, comb-over.

28. Maybe Tony Robbins can give a motivational session, and then hold a firewalk.

29. Wolf has no brain or heart, sad...

Wolf, let me help you. You have crossed the Rubicon between fact and fiction. Are you a journalist or a shill? Inquiring minds want to know.
