The Republican National Convention this year has been a doozy, from Melania’s plagiarized speech to the incredibly hateful benediction given by Pastor Mark Burns. There were too many cringeworthy moments to name, but the most noteworthy of all came from Senator Ted Cruz.
The Senator encouraged Republicans to vote with their conscience and then left the stage without endorsing Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump. When Cruz did not endorse Trump, he was booed loudly, only adding to this ridiculous mess we call the Republican National Convention.
On the third night of the Republican National Convention, Fox News hosts did a recap of all that has happened so far, including Cruz’s refusal to endorse Trump. During this recap, host Juan Williams made his feelings about the RNC crystal clear.
Fox News co-host Kimberly Guilfoyle asked Williams:
‘Do you have something positive to say? Do you think it’s going better now, or what do you think?’
‘No, remember yesterday I asked you, you think this convention is a success? I just, I don’t understand. To me this is like the worst convention I’ve ever seen, and I’ve seen a lot of them. But day after day, there’s no consistent message that would appeal to people who may be undecided and are looking and thinking, “gosh, I wonder if I could really go — maybe I don’t like Hillary Clinton so much” real questions about her trustworthiness, on and on. So could I go for Donald Trump and now Mike Pence? Well I think Mike Pence is forgettable. I gotta tell you. I don’t think most Americans knew him before and I don’t think most Americans are going to remember him after last night. I think they’re going to go to what Eric said, which is the theme of the whole day, all the headlines, all the news coverage, about Ted Cruz.’
And he’s right for the most part. There wasn’t much to say about Mike Pence. The most memorable part of Pence’s evening was the extremely awkward moment when Donald Trump tried to kiss him.
