#ChasingCleveland - There were some issues on display on GOP's first day that should have been avoided.
First, there was the chaos on the floor that looked like a banana republic and bully pulpit system after there were were sufficiently conspicuous opportunities to speak on convention rules and then be voted on.
This terrible dissent in which to advocate a real agenda was a wonderful opportunity for digital democracy. Instead, the opposing delegates are now reportedly now being threatened by pro-Trump forces.

Then some are asking who is a liar now? 58 words ripped off from Michelle Obama's speech and Trump's message is that the system is rigged? Did Melania Trump just rip off a Michelle Obama speech?
Looks like Melania Trump really did rip off Michelle Obama's speech http://cnb.cx/29QqP2x
Melania Trump's prime-time speech was strikingly similar to Michelle Obama's http://politi.co/2a7flNV
