The RNC Kicks Off

The Republican National Convention kicked off in Cleveland, but not without some controversy.


It was in a haze of smoke that the Republican nominee for President emerged, Donald Trump taking the stage in Cleveland for the Republican National Convention. There were some naysayers in the arena, unbound delegates asking for a new vote to recall Trump, but failed. The theme of the night’s speakers was safety, with many highlights to the recent targeted shooting of police officers. But the crowd favorite was clearly the wife of the nominee, Melania Trump, who address ed the floor to introduce her husband. however, many of Mrs Trump’s talking points wee in tune verbatim to a speech given by current First Lady Michelle Obama back in 2008. Day Two of the RNC continues today.
