While this may be evocative of a Trump hair moment, it is in fact a tumbleweed and as my dear friend from Kansas would say…*Holy Shitballs.*
According to Crooks and Liars…
Pandemonium broke out on the floor of the Republican National Convention today as ten states attempted to introduce a resolution to release delegates from their pledges on the first vote.
After a voice vote was called, the chair called it for the “Ayes” despite the fact that there was absolutely no consensus on the floor for the motion. A roll-call vote was refused, which led Mike Lee and Ken Cuccinelli to protest loudly, but to no avail.
The Iowa, Colorado and Virginia delegations then left the convention floor in protest.
The GOP are riding rough shod over their own delegates. They are making the rules up as they go along. Supreme court nomination? But now they are eating their own.
What does Ali have to say about this?
A lot, but I can’t find the picture. I think the battery is low and I too am rather knackered. Missed my connecting flight yesterday from Heathrow to Dublin. I had been up since 7.00am East Coast time and trawled NYC on my own to buy a few wee presents. Got to the UK approximately 24 hours later, had to wait another three hours for another plane. I eventually got home and was determined to beat the jet lag so ended up staying up half the night and woke early to a heat wave here in Dublin.
I should be alright tomorrow.
Eric and me!!!
I wanted to take him home for my daughter. Sadly, he told me he was of the other persuasion. I mentioned that I had two sons, but he wasn’t budging.
