Donald Trump, Jr. For President

Despite the plagiarism, I think Melania Trump gave the best speech last night. Tonight, though it had some odd moments, Tifffany Trump gave a great speech and introduction to the American people. But Donald Trump, Jr. tonight has given the best speech.

All the energy Paul Ryan lacked in his and all the failures to make the case for Trump in Chris Christie’s came pouring out in Donald Trump, Jr.’s speech for his dad. It was a solid speech with praise for blue collar common sense, a damning indictment against Hillary Clinton, and a ringing defense of his dad.

It was totally solid and smart to put him in prime time. If he were running for President, he sounds like a guy I could support. But alas he is not. His dad is. And I cannot support that guy. Put lipstick on a pig and it is still a pig.

But the speech was really good. He knows his audience. This guy could have a future in politics.
