The Democratic National Convention was brutally mocked online on Monday night during the event’s opening night as many commentators panned it as boring, cringeworthy, and obscene.
Former Democratic presidential candidate Marianne Williamson wrote: “I wanted to like it. I really did, I promise I did.”
Progressive David Pakman wrote: “Someone please talk me off the ledge. I want to win, and the first 22 minutes of this DNC…I’m scared. Can someone tell me how great this is or something?”
Washington Post columnist Josh Rogin tweeted: “The cheesy videos that used to be the space fillers in the convention have become the convention.”
The Blaze Managing Editor Leon Wolf wrote: “This is one of the worst things that’s ever been on television.”
Washington Examiner columnist Becket Adams wrote: “this Democratic convention is like a more depressing version of the Jerry Lewis Labor Day telethon, and that involved kids with muscular dystrophy.”
RealClearPolitics Senior Writer Mark Hemingway wrote: “Allowing Cuomo to blame the Federal government for New York’s coronavirus problems is some chutzpah.”
Free Beacon Executive Editor Brent Scher commented on one of the guests who came on and pretty much pinned her father dying from COVID-19 on President Donald Trump.
“Holy s**t this woman roasting her dead dad going to a karaoke bar,” Scher wrote. “These people…”
Political commentator Noah Pollak wrote: “this music vid is crying out for live commentary by Beavis & Butthead”
RealClearNews reporter Philip Wegmann commented on a video from Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden’s Twitter account that praised New York Democrat Governor Andrew Cuomo’s “leadership” during the pandemic.
“Biden thanks Cuomo,” Wegmann said. “The AP recently estimated that New York nursing home is closer to 11,000 not New York’s reported 6,600.”
Federalist co-founder Sean Davis commented on the same video, writing: “Andrew Cuomo’s coronavirus nursing home orders killed 4x as many New Yorkers as 9/11. Pass it on.”
Washington Post editor Tanya Sichynsky wrote: “gretchen whitmer has such disaster movie president energy.”
Political commentator Ryan James Girdusky wrote: “Gretchen Whitmer has psycho ex-girlfriend vibes.”
Progressive David Sirota wrote: “Imagine having all the awesome creative talent of Hollywood and the entertainment industry at your fingertips and nonetheless this is the convention you produce.”
A random Twitter account replied to Sirota: “Saves me money on ambien.”
Progressive Michael Tracey wrote: “They completely shut out Tulsi from this convention even though she won delegates in the primaries and was consistently the most-Googled candidate.”
Fox News contributor Guy Benson took a shot at former Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders, who responded to a tweet from Fox News contributor Katie Pavlich that said: “It is quite rich to hear Bernie Sanders talk about authoritarianism considering his support for the communist Castro regime and the USSR.”
“‘Trump’s authoritarianism is alarming. And now, allow me to say a few words about Fidel Castro’s amazing literacy program, followed by a slideshow of my Soviet honeymoon…,’” Benson wrote in a statement mocking Sanders.
Too bad they had to cut the replay of that famous old favorite “Springtime, for Hitler, In Germany”. It would have improved ratings.
