Okay, I am just going to say it, Donald Junior’s girlfriend is fucking terrifying.

Speaker after speaker painted the Democrats’ vision for the country in apocalyptic terms while arguing that a victory by Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden would threaten Americans’ physical and financial safety.
“They want to destroy this country and everything that we have fought for and hold dear. They want to steal your liberty, your freedom. They want to control what you see and think and believe, so they can control how you live,” said an animated Kimberly Guilfoyle, a top Trump campaign official and the girlfriend of the president’s oldest son. “They want to enslave you to the weak, dependent, liberal, victim ideology, to the point that you will not recognize this country or yourself.”
The dire warnings were occasionally interspersed with promises that under Trump, the economy could recover and forces of change facing the country could be held at bay.
“There are millions of families like mine across this nation . . . full of potential, seeking to live the American Dream,” said Tim Scott (S.C.), the lone Black Republican in the Senate and the night’s closing speaker. “And I’m here tonight to tell you that supporting the Republican ticket gives you the best chance of making that dream a reality.”
“They’re trying to steal the election from Republicans,” the president said of Democrats, without evidence, minutes after formally securing the party’s nomination. “Just like they did it last time, with spying.”
Other speakers at the convention — including young conservative organizer Charlie Kirk, and the St. Louis couple who emerged from their mansion and aimed weapons at racial-justice protesters — amplified the president’s assertions that America would become a hellscape if Biden won.
“I am here tonight to tell you — to warn you — that this election is a decision between preserving America as we know it and eliminating everything that we love,” said Kirk, 26, calling Trump the “bodyguard of Western civilization” battling “vengeful activists.”
Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-Fla.), one of the president’s staunchest defenders in Congress, said Democrats want to “disarm you, empty the prisons, lock you in your home, and invite MS-13 to live next door. And the defunded police aren’t on their way.”
The president’s son Donald Trump Jr. criticized Biden as a veteran of Washington who had his chance to solve the challenges facing the country and failed.
“Joe Biden is basically the Loch Ness monster of the Swamp,” Trump Jr. said. “
What the shit?
Do these people not realize that we have already lived in Joe Biden’s America for eight glorious years?
You may remember that as a time of readily available jobs, international respect, and hope for the future.
I don’t know which Joe Biden these people are talking about, but it is not the one we know.
In fact, the utter depression, broken economy, and fear of what is to come seems to more accurately reflect the times we are living through right now under Donald J. Trump.
As a matter of fact it kind of felt that this whole convention reflected Trump’s own prejudice and habit of projecting his own failings onto other people.
This was not a Republican convention, this was a look inside the crazed mind of Donald Trump, and all of these Republicans mouthed the words fed to them by their puppet master.
