HOO BOY that was quite a day of ENORMOUS AMOUNTS of turgid garbage! And thank Maude it was the final day!
I again did some live-tweeting of the primetime trash parade, including Donald Trump's heinous address, and I've Storified those tweets for anyone who wants to read them.
What can I even say about the grotesque carnival of bigotry that was the Republican convention? It was hideous.
And the reaction to Trump's speech is doing my head in. I mean.
The idea Trump moderated himself is absurd. Again, the perfidy of "civility." He gave a fascistic address but didn't call women pigs! Bravo.— Melissa McEwan (@Shakestweetz) July 22, 2016
And trust this: If Trump really gave a single shit about the LGBTQ community, he wouldn't have chosen Mike Pence as his running mate.— Melissa McEwan (@Shakestweetz) July 22, 2016
It's alarming how cavalier media are being about this speech. "Americanism will be our credo." "Law & order." "America first." DO YOUR JOBS.— Melissa McEwan (@Shakestweetz) July 22, 2016
I swear to Maude if I see "Trump" and "LGBTQ outreach" one more time.— Melissa McEwan (@Shakestweetz) July 22, 2016
He 👏 chose 👏 Mike 👏 Pence 👏 !!!
Maude save us. Maude save us all.
