Let the circus begin. Republicans on Monday kick off what The Donald would call the classiest, greatest, most amazing and entertaining convention in the history of conventions — a Trump-like spectacle being promoted as the best of the best, with, as the candidate promises, a “showbiz” edge.
The four-night event will feature golfer Natalie Gulbis, actors Scott Baio and Antonio Sabato Jr., the top Republicans from Capitol Hill (Speaker of the House Paul Ryan and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell), former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani and dozens of others — all speaking at the Quicken Loans Arena, home of the NBA-champion Cleveland Cavaliers.
Stars from “American Idol” and “The Voice” — Candice Glover, Jermaine Paul, Melinda Doolittle and Dez Duron — are on tap to perform.
“The site has been chosen and the arena is fine, but I’d want to have — you know, the last Republican convention was extraordinarily boring,” Trump said of preparing for the event in an interview in May.
“We’re going to come up with some things that will make it interesting and informative, but also smart and different.”
Trump added to the suspense by waiting until Sunday night to release his speaker schedule, which is laden with fellow reality-TV stars, including Rep. Sean Duffy of Wisconsin and his wife, Rachel Campos Duffy, who met on the set of MTV’s “Road Rules,” “Duck Dynasty” star Willie Robertson, Antonio Sabato Jr., star of the upcoming “Antonio: Down Under,” and Kimberlin Brown, host of The Design Network’s show “Dramatic Design.”
“It’s very important to put some showbiz into a convention, otherwise people are going to fall asleep,” Trump said in another interview on the event.
But none of the celebrities, high-profile politicos or even chaos makers is expected to outshine the stars of the show: Donald, Melania, Donald Jr., Ivanka, Eric, and Tiffany Trump — the political newcomers who successfully and unexpectedly took over the Republican Party.
