Donald Trump Jr. Flops At GOP Convention With Laughably Bad Speech

Donald Trump Jr. poorly delivered a fantasy speech divorced from reality with glassy eyes that was so bad, it was funny.
Don Jr. accused Democrats of trying to cut taxes for millionaires when his daddy passed the biggest tax cut for the rich and corporations in history:

Donald Trump isn’t so much giving a speech, but an alternative history with no basis in reality. The topper is Trump Jr. accusing Democrats of trying to cut taxes for millionaires.

Jr. accused Democrats of tyranny, while defending Confederate statues dedicated to those who fought to enslave an entire race of people:

Trump Jr. rewrote economic history and claimed that Trump was rocket fuel to the economy and Obama and Biden were low growth when Obama’s economy grew more than Trump’s:

Obama’s economy grew more than Trump’s but according to the Don Jr. comedy hour, Obama and Biden had low growth and Trump was rocket fuel.

The point of his speech seemed to be that Republicans need to be really scared because Joe Biden is a radical leftist who is coming to take away everything.

Donald Trump Jr. didn’t try to humanize his father. He tried to project grievance by screaming lies and propaganda.
It has been a long time since a high profile convention speech was this terrible.
Trump Jr.’s speech tried to turn Joe Biden into Bernie Sanders, but instead, it was a terrible SNL sketch that failed in every way.
