Half of the 12 “key speakers” planned for the Republican National Convention will be Trumps, Fox News revealed Saturday.

Twitter critics went bonkers.

Donald Trump, Donald Trump Jr., Melania, Ivanka, Eric and Tiffany Trump were all listed as main speakers at the big event that begins Monday, other media reported as well ― though the schedule was still being finalized over the weekend.

In addition to the family ranks will be Vice President Mike Pence, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, former U.S. ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley, South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem, Iowa Sen. Joni Ernst and South Carolina Sen. Tim Scott.

Ironically, McCarthy earlier this year blasted Joe Biden for nepotism because son Hunter Biden worked for a Ukrainian energy company when Biden was vice president. But everything he ranted about could be applied to each of Trump’s adult children.

I guess when Trump said he wanted to transform the Republican party into his image he took that literally. 

It’s like watching the political version of The Addams Family.

Trump also has plans to dominate every night of the convention as well.

President Donald Trump will speak on all four nights of next week’s Republican National Convention, breaking with the longstanding tradition limiting the party’s presidential candidate to one big acceptance speech on the last night of the event, The New York Times reported.

Trump will speak at the RNC’s first-ever virtual event every night in a prime-time 10pm slot, reported the Times. The party plans are being coordinated by two former Apprentice producers who hope to eclipse the DNC’s first virtual convention last week. Trump was the show’s host for the first fourteen seasons, and the show’s popularity gave him a national profile and contributed to his rise to the presidency.

According to Politico, Trump believes that last week’s DNC event was too “gloomy,” and wants a more upbeat tone for the GOP conference.

The only way that Trump can make this brewing shit storm into something more inspiring than the DNC convention is by announcing that he is dropping out of the race. 

What do we think the chances of that are?

I will try not to watch any of this tonight just to preserve what is left of my sanity, but I have to admit that I am really drawn to disaster movies so that might be a challenge.
