The 5 Best Moments of the Republican Convention: Tuesday Edition

Ben Carson warned GOP convention-goers about Hillary Clinton's close relationship with Lucifer.J. Scott Applewhite/AP


Today was just plain boring compared with yesterday. Still, I guess I can dig up five favorite moments:

  • Trump campaign defends Melania Trump’s plagiarism by saying, “This concept that Michelle Obama invented the English language is absurd.”
  • The official theme of the evening, “Make America Work Again,” is completely missing in action. Does that count as a moment? A non-moment? Whatever it is, it makes the list.
  • In its place, the vaguely creepy chant “Lock her up” turns into the official slogan of the evening.
  • Donald Trump Jr., the son of a famously flamboyant billionaire, rails against the “self-satisfied people at the top, our new aristocrats.”
  • Ben Carson tells us that Saul Alinsky dedicated his book to Lucifer; Hillary Clinton wrote a college thesis about Alinsky; therefore Clinton is…a Satan worshipper?
