RNC: Chaos in Trump’s America will end if we vote for Trump’s America

RNC Trump's America

As the Republican National Convention (RNC) — aka the Trump National Convention (TNC) — wrapped up its four-day lovefest of all things Trump, a consistent theme was made abundantly clear: the chaos we’ve been living in Trump’s America will end if we vote for Trump’s America in November.

The RNC/TNC is so convinced of this that they didn’t even bother to write a party platform for 2020 after Trump had promised to give the job to Ivanka’s husband, Jared Kushner. Instead, the RNC/TNC issued a resolution stating that the GOP “has and will continue to enthusiastically support the President’s America-first agenda.”

Ironically, the RNC/TNC decided to unofficially recycle the party’s 2016 platform, a document loaded with condemnations of the “current president”, “current chief executive”, “current administration”, and “current occupant” of the White House.

In 2016, these condemnations were directed at Barack Obama. In 2020, they are now directed at The Donald. Uncanny, isn’t it?

Despite a promise by RNC Chair Ronna McDaniel that Trump’s convention coronation would have “an aspirational and uplifting tone from the greatest messenger for our party and the star of this convention: the president himself,” Trump and his merry band of sycophants speaking at this week’s event described America as a violent, anti-Christian, anti-woman, racist, and hateful place. But not to worry, Trump’s America can be relied upon to safeguard us against the threats we see all around us in Trump’s America.

Throughout the week, Trump attempted to give the impression that his administration is completely disconnected from the myriad of crises sweeping the nation, and in true reality TV fashion, he broadcasted several episodes of The Apprentice: White House Edition throughout the convention to feed the illusion.

Using the White House as his personal stage prop, Trump mixed campaign activity with his official duties this week — a clear violation of the Hatch Act — to show himself in various stages of presidential busyness. For example, the New York liberal used live broadcasts during the convention to issue a pardon, hold a meeting with freed hostages, and preside over a naturalization ceremony.

These events, along with the TV facetime given the line-up of Trump cheerleaders, had one clear goal in mind: to give the impression that Trump’s America is a place filled with shiny, happy people who can bring an end to the violence and anarchy we see every day in Trump’s America.

According to the RNC/TNC, their fearless leader has complete control and is fully responsible for everything good in their version of Trump’s America, but he has no control and bears no responsibility for the bad we see in the version of Trump’s America we are living every day.

Support for an incumbent has been a bipartisan tradition at party conventions for a very long time. But the RNC/TNC has resembled something closer to the cultish worship we’ve been witnessing ever since Trump rode down the Trump Towers escalator to announce his candidacy.

When Trump officially accepted the Republican nomination, he made the case for Trump’s America:

“This election will decide whether we will defend the American way of life, or whether we allow a radical movement to completely dismantle and destroy it.

“In the left’s backward view, they do not see America as the most free, just, and exceptional nation on earth. Instead, they see a wicked nation that must be punished for its sins.

“We understand that America is not a land cloaked in darkness, America is the torch that enlightens the entire world.”

Trump’s Reaganesque words aside, he and the GOP have worked to rewrite his track record to create a type of Bizarro Trump, where liberty is abandoned even as he claims to defend it, and tyranny is embraced even as he claims to fight it.

Put another way, the GOP uses Orwellian doublespeak to proclaim Trump’s America as the only hope we have to defeat the socialist agenda of the Far-Left even as Trump’s America promotes that agenda under the name of Nationalism.

In a Wednesday Night appearance at the RNC/TNC, White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany offered her endorsement of Donald Trump for reelection. She said, in part:

“I want my daughter to grow up in President Donald J. Trump’s America.

“I choose to work for this president for her. When I look into my baby’s eyes, I see a new life, a miracle for which I have a solemn responsibility to protect.”

Unfortunately for the press secretary, her daughter is already growing up in President Donald J. Trump’s America.

That’s part of the problem.
