Billionaire PayPal co-founder, Facebook investor and Gawker bankrupter Peter Thiel spoke tonight at the GOP convention, and provided a completely different perspective than most who graced the #TrumpCircus stage.
Some key lines:
– “Instead of going to Mars, we have invaded the Middle East. We don’t need to see Hillary Clinton’s deleted emails. Her incompetence is in plain sight.”
– “It’s time to end the era of stupid wars, and rebuild our country.”
– “Now we are told that the great debate is about who gets to use which bathroom. This is a distraction from our real problems. Who cares?”
– “I am proud to be gay. I am proud to be a Republican. But most of all, I am proud to be an American.” (To huge applause and standing ovation.)
