Democrats To Feature Never Trump Republicans Tonight [Opinion]
The 2020 Democratic National Convention begins tonight at 8 p.m. CT. The convention was supposed to be held in Milwaukee, Wisconsin but due to the coronavirus, it will be a virtual convention with speakers in different locations throughout the United States.
Democrats say that tonight's theme will be one of unity. Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders will speaker as will Michelle Obama. But it won't just be Democrats that speak tonight.
The former Governor of Ohio who ran for President in 2016, John Kasichch will speak this evening. Kasich is a Never Trump Republican who has made a new career off of going on cable news and complaining about President Donald Trump. Kasich never did like President Trump and it should surprise no one that he will be taking the virtual stage tonight in defense of Biden.
Last night Democrats starting teasing that a big name former Republican member of Congress would also announce their support of Joe Biden on Monday night. According to The Hill, that person really isn't that big of a name but will join other Republicans on the virtual stage this evening.
Former New Jersey Gov. Christine Whitman and former Rep. Susan Molinari (R-N.Y.) are among former GOP lawmakers that will speak as part of Democrats’ virtual programming, organizers announced Monday.
Meg Whitman, the former CEO of Hewlett Packard, will also speak during the programming, as will former Ohio Gov. John Kasich (R), who the DNC had previously announced as a speaker.
The Republicans will appear on the first night of the convention, crossing party lines to back presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden in his bid to push President Trump out of office.
Molinari is the "big name" lawmaker Democrats were teasing last night? Yawn.
None of these people, Kasich or Molinari, will make Trump supporters bolt from Trump to vote for Biden. These are Republicans who are angry over Trump's tweets but probably love the policy being put into place by Trump.
The Never Trump Republicans and the Democrats are working overtime to convince people that Joe Biden is a moderate and Kamala Harris is as well.
I don't buy it and neither should you. Listen to what the Democrats really want. Listen to what "The Squad" wants. It's the Green New Deal. It's medicare for all and open borders. It's an assault on the Second Amendment. That's what you really need to listen for this week.
The Never Trump Republicans are old news and tonight won't change that.
