I think he was talking about the production values.

It’s getting better. Rough start. Hit its stride channeling COVID anger.

Memorable line of the night from a woman who lost her dad to COVID: “his only preexisting condition was voting for Donald Trump.”

Apparently I’m the only one watching, but highlight was by far Michelle O.

Her ability to create connection is borderline supernatural.

We don’t have 50,000 new cases and 1,000 new deaths every day, nor do we have any gun violence, nor do we have a sociopathic leader, and we also have largely free healthcare, but sure, at least you’re not Australia.

I almost said I like Australia and it’s silly to be criticizing it, but now I’m glad I didn’t

The best moments of every convention are never the big speakers, or long time politicians, it’s always been from the unknowns or real people with real stories.
The woman whose father died from Covid has been the highlight so far .

I posted the list of who was going to speak at the convention, not that those people are most important or the ones that people remember, but to show that Trump doesn’t have people with any standing whatsoever to actually be seen speaking at the RNC.

I think the production value was actually very good. Once it got past the first couple interviews and hit The Rising video, it never really let up.
Remember that the Dems have been working on a remote convention production for months. Trump’s team has had maybe a month to throw this together.

I think the most striking thing was if you just sit back and look at who and what was highlighted tonight. Black, Latino, Asian, Native American, gay, trans, along side farmers, dissolutiond Republicans, the list goes on.
From reports, Trump is going to have the two billionaire nimrods that drew weapons on peaceful protestors in St. Louis as speakers at the RNC.
This could be an absolute disaster for Trump when swayable voters see these conversations back to back.
And imagine seeing Trump speak 4 nights in a row. Just brutal.

Hats off tonight to Bernie and Michelle.
Sanders has been a uniter this time. And he brought his signature straight talk with passion tonight. Also, just found out that Harris was Sanders first choice for the VP pick.

Michelle as always shows why she is at an other worldly status.

If you asked me if I thought the person who greenlighted this Billy Porter Steven Stills performance to close out day one of the DNC should be fired or promoted, my answer would be yes.

But hey, at least we're not Australia.

She was so good, talk about channeling your pain into power. I liked the other people who voted for Trump who said it was such a mistake.

I tried to stay awake for Michelle Obama. Woke up and she was on, but I had to go back to sleep. Hopefully it's on You Tube.

Even Fox was impressed. Of course there was the pathetic apology and signaling to Trump by Bret Baier at the end.



Fox News Sunday host Chris Wallace, who has been the target of Trump’s ire in the past, agreed.

“You know, it’s interesting. You know, Michelle Obama, as she said, doesn’t like politics and she said that this speech was her main contribution to the Biden campaign. It was a heck of a contribution,” Wallace said. “She really flayed, sliced and diced Donald Trump, talking about the chaos and confusion, and lack of empathy, especially coming from this president and this White House. And again, very practical. Not just, ‘This is what your feelings should be.’ But you gotta get out, you gotta vote, you gotta convince your neighbors to vote. This was a very effective speech.”

Fox News political analyst Brit Hume, who recently accused Biden of peddling “black grievance politics,” questioned the accuracy of some of Obama’s statements, saying it was “laced with exaggerations and distortions,” but even he had to agree on the effectiveness of the speech.

“But that’s what we expect in political rhetoric, that’s the way you do it,” Hume said. “So the question becomes, you know, not the actual truthfulness of the case that’s made, but how effectively it’s delivered and whether the attacks are likely to have the effect on the electorate that she hopes for. I suspect, in this case, probably, it did.”

This came just one day after President Trump once again attacked the network and told Fox News viewers to look elsewhere. Following the praise for Michelle Obama, and just before ending convention coverage, anchor Bret Baier assured viewers that nothing has changed at the network.

“Listen, I just want to say, Fox News has not changed,” Baier said. “We have covered both parties’ conventions from the beginning of this network, fully and fairly from all sides, and we will continue to.”

When you’re a US American, you’re always expected to take the joke.

Whenever the joke goes the other way, even for a second, other people get defensive and offended.

But it’s ok, you see, as I’m still not Australian.
