Boos for Cruz, Excellence From Pence

 

Cleveland Donald Trump’s running mate Mike Pence drew cheers for his speech Wednesday, but when the third night of the Republican National Convention was over, the topic that dominated conversation was the churlish performance of Texas Sen.

CLEVELAND — Today, the anchors on CNN were doing a happy dance because the woman who wrote Melania Trump’s Monday RNC speech has owned up to copying three lines from Michelle Obama’s speech at the Democrat 2008 convention.
