The final night of the RNC was a huge one … for fact checkers.

Hi, Friday! Before we get into the RNC buffoonery, enjoy this wonderful video of a guy doing a simple, nice thing:

Political Crap

Last night was the final night of the Republican National Convention — THANK GOD —  and it was held on the front lawn of the White House in yet another violation of the Hatch Act. It was unethical, inappropriate, illegal, but also dangerous!

They brought in a huge crowd of about 2,000 people — most of whom were unmasked — and none were tested except for those who would be in close contact with President Preexisting Condition.

Additionally, the opening video featured pictures of Kamala Harris and Joe Biden while warning that the Democrats are “telling you what to wear.”

oh-oh-oh-okay-rupauls-drag-race

PRESIDENT SCIENCE, EVERYBODY!

The big featured speakers were Rudy Giuliani, Ivanka Trump, and her father. Oh, and the human ham hock who runs the UFC.

Rudy screamed about the violence erupting in Trump’s America.

Ivanka’s speech was insipid, and not worth even commenting on, really, except for this moment when it ended:

Speaking of Melania, dumbass wore a bright green dress and the internet did what the internet does:

As for President Fuhrer’s speech itself, it was long, boring, and very low-energy. Even Fox News thought so (well, one guy on Fox News).

As for the content itself, I will just leave it to the fact-checkers:

And in conclusion:

Going Viral

The Los Angeles Times had to delete a tweet quoting President Prevaricator at his RNC speech last night suggesting that a vaccine is immediately forthcoming because it didn’t give enough context — that context being that it’s completely unsubstantiated.

NBC’s debut of Law & Order: Organized Crime has been pushed back to 2021, unsurprisingly.

Invasion, an alien invasion film at Apple TV+, returned to production in England. Check out casting below for more information.

Can you even imagine risking your life to see Smash Mouth in concert? Welp, as of yesterday some 100+ people who attended their concert in Sturgis have tested positive for COVID. We are the stupidest people.

Baseball is weird these days.

All Other TV News

Here’s the first episode of Showtime’s docuseries Love Fraud. The series is receiving terrific reviews and high praise for allowing the subjects to tell their own stories. Here’s more about Richard Scott Smith, the conman at the center of the story.

And the only other thing I have for you today is Amber Riley’s tribute to Naya Rivera on last night’s Jimmy Kimmel Live! It’s been a long week.
