Trump Will Feature Sports Stars at Convention

Trump Will Feature Sports Stars at Convention

https://politicalwire.com/2016/06/11/trump-will-feature-sports-stars-at-convention/

"SNIP..............


Donald Trump “has some ideas for how to jazz up the Republican National Convention, and he previewed one at a rally on Friday evening: a ‘winner’s evening’ of sports celebrities and champions addressing the convention rather than politicians,” the New York Times reports.

He said he wanted to have them all address the convention as examples of “winners,” rather than “these people, these politicians who are going to get up and speak and speak and speak.”

1. He's not talking policy at all. He will not have politicians at his convention. The RNC doesn't even

have a picture of Donald on their webpage. This is so weird. It is total bait.

17. Took the words right off my keyboard

This doesn't sound so much like a political gathering as one of those motivational speaker explosions! Scheduled to appear: Ten interesting-sounding people (none of whom will actually be there, bait-and-switch), and a dozen also-rans who boast a resume of runner-up for Midwest Salesman of the Year from 2008.

Sports celebrities!Whoo hoo! It's . . . Tim Tebow? Robert Wuhl? Who?

26. Curt Schilling, John Rocker, Mike Tyson, Bobby Knight, Timmy Tebow

WWE "Stars". The Summer Olympic Team has a fair share of religious nuts, perhaps they can make a cameo before Rio.
