The first night of the 2016 RNC featured war mongers (Rudy Guiliani, a congressman and the guy who spoke before Joni Ernst), racists (Sheriff David Clark, Guiliani again, and others) and a plagiarist, Melania Trump. Mrs. Trump’s speech featured full passages that were lifted directly from Michelle Obama’s speech at the 2008 Democratic convention when her husband was the nominee.

I don’t think Mrs. Trump lifted the lines herself. But I wonder why the media is treating her with kid gloves after she told Matt Lauer that she wrote the speech “myself, with as little help as possible.” But it does signal that Trump’s entire campaign has its head up its collective ass!

Yesterday I told you about Trump’s sickening remarks on Saturday when he was supposed to introduce Mike Pence to the world regarding religious institutions’ tax exempt status, one of my biggest pet peeves. As I said I would, I invited Rev. Barry Lynn on the show to talk about that issue.

In the second hour, it’s Tuesday, so GottaLaff day. And we did.

I won’t be here tomorrow, as I’m getting a lung biopsy. I will put together a good best of tonight, as long as you promise to listen tomorrow.
