Political Theater

It is the second day of the Democratic National Convention and man, do they know how to put on a good show. Between the Bernie protests, a star studded line-up with celebrities and professional politicians, the convention chair got the boot and Bernie was booed by his own supporters for suggesting they throw their hat behind the nominee.

Significant, because Melania Trump is Slovenian and the community of Slovenian immigrants in Cleveland is the largest outside of the country itself.  Who knew! According to our Tour Guide/ Uber driver, they also LOVE Melania Trump. … Continue reading Day 3. Part One
