RNC Recap Day 3 – Is it over yet?

twodudesbrewsbooks logo

I thought last night was the last evening of this nonsense.  So imagine my surprise when Donald Trump didn’t speak and I looked online only to see today is the last day.  No rest for the (political) weary, we’ve got an event to cover!  Don’t believe my enthusiasm?  Yeah me either.

Well, there’s no time like the present – I present to you my three take aways from the Republican National Convention Day 3.

Ted Cruz Ain’t Buyin’

The senator from Texas last night was given a headline spot to speak.  If you’re one of the organizers for the RNC or the Trump Camp itself, what the hell are you thinking?!?!  Listen, here at Two Dudes, Brews, & Books, we might not be the sharpest knives in the drawer, but there is no way on God’s green Earth we’d let a disgruntled rival talk about us during a peak interview slot.

In case you missed it, Ted did not jump aboard the Trump Train and instead told people to vote with their consciousness or something.  And honestly can you blame him?  Trump called the man Lyin’ Ted for months and took shots at his family with some awful rumors.  Yep, just the kinda guy you’d ask to be one of your keynote speakers.

Third Eye Blind – Just do your job

You’re performing at a charity event, which happens to be in Cleveland, and you go out of your way to troll republicans who may be at your concert.  What about all those people who showed up to see you and be entertained that weren’t part of the RNC?  What about the charity itself that presumably paid you to perform and entertain those there for a good cause?  See when you attempt to make “political stands” what often times happens is it blows up in your face.  Great job guys, hope you enjoyed the news cycle today as it might be the last for a long time.

No Unity – It’s worth repeating

Ted Cuz and John Kasich refuse to endorse him.  Other high standing republicans like Paul Ryan are lukewarm with their support at best.  Yep, the underlying theme here at the convention is that if you’re not related to Trump (or Chris Christie), you kind of just smile and wave (unless your Ted Cruz, then you burn the house down).

The only thing keeping the republicans together is their vast hatred of Hillary Clinton.  Trump’s number 1 thing going for him?  He’s not Hillary Clinton.  As long as he maintains that, he might have a shot at this.  Oh yeah, and don’t send emails your not suppose to.  People frown on that as well.

Because I’m not all bad, I leave you today with this meme.  I hope you enjoy it.
