    1) Goddamnit I can't place this music. They wouldn't want to use a liberal-themed movie, but.. ugh. I know I've heard this!

    2) Fake flags?

    The staging where he has two Secret Service looking dudes on stage.

    Herbert Hoover got 40% of the vote in 1932. Friendly reminder.

    These are Clinton talking points right? Since when do they cheer equal pay for equal work?

    Trump is whatever you need him to be, baby. As long as you need him to be a massive authoritarian populist asshole. He doesn't have the ideological conservative bones to know that he should oppose equal pay, and doesn't actually care if it happens or not so why not promise it.

    The problem is, though, that she'd still be a Republican:

    Well this officially confirms it. No speaker at this convention is able to properly carry on a "USA!" chant.

    You know, Trump, when you combine those numbers, that also means you got the most votes AGAINST you ever.

    And did he just say that it was shameful the Dems got 20% fewer votes in a primary when Obama was running unopposed? or did I hear the wrong year?

    I can't watch it because I will become apoplectic so I just want to know how often he goes off script.

    Is she actually a Republican? I figured at best she's unaffiliated. Most of her speeches I've seen paint her as a moderate.

    I have every confidence in Trump's ability to destroy law and order in this country and turn it into dictatorship and oppression.

    Ivanka Trump just said motherhood, rather than gender itself, is now the driver of the wage gap. That’s a bit of an exaggeration — women make less than men on average across ages. But it’s certainly true that the wage gap grows significantly when women take time off to raise children. Progressives, of course, argue that means the U.S. should require companies to offer paid parental leave so that new parents can take time off, and to provide child care so they can go back to work when they’re ready. But achieving real gender parity is hard; research suggests that generous leave benefits can in some cases hold women back because companies assume they will take off time to have children. (Some Scandinavian countries have begun pushing men to take time off, too, to achieve more balance.)

    For more on this, check out our Kitchen Table Podcast on the cost of raising children.

    He wants to commit clear war crimes. Truly the law and order guy.

    ...so Trump's saying he's going to use Martial Law to stop all the violence? Because, otherwise, policing is handled by the states themselves.
