3. The nominee's closest primary competitor refused to endorse him and was booed off stage

 

His wife, whom the nominee had already referred to as ugly, had to be escorted off the convention floor by security lest she be torn to shreds by an angry mob.

Good people, these!

6. While his competitor was telling people to vote their conscience,

the nominee came busting out waving at everyone, so the cameras & attention would be on him. Then, he retweeted an 'ugly' picture of the competitor's wife. Just for good measure.

You can't make this stuff up.

If it were in a novel it would be considered 'too over the top.'

The Secret Service is officially investigating Al Baldasaro, an adviser to the Donald Trump campaign for veterans issues, who called for Hillary Clinton’s execution for “treason.”

“The U.S. Secret Service is aware of this matter and will conduct the appropriate investigation,” spokesman Robert Hoback told The Daily Beast on Wednesday afternoon.

“Anyone that commits treason should be shot,” Baldasaro told The Daily Beast earlier in the day. “I believe Hillary Clinton committed treason. She put people in danger. When people take confidential material off a server, you’re sharing information with the enemy. That’s treason.”

4. The long version:



Watching from around the 4:00 minute mark appears to be the equivalent of tRump arriving by helicopter this morning, with the full orchestral fanfare...

Lots of happy, smiling people giving massive popular support to this guy, too, and their platforms are way too similar to be mere coincidence.

12. If this was a movie, it would get very poor ratings for being unrealistic and way OTT...

And one of the female delegates was threatened with death in the ladies' room...
