The convention was gavelled-in by controversial Baltimore mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake as the DNC chairwoman, Debbie Wasserman-Shultz, resigns.
Shultz instead attempted an early Monday speech to the Florida delegation during which she was constantly booed, interrupted and otherwise jeered:
The negative attention comes as WikiLeaks released tens of thousands of emails, some of which contain evidence of the pro-Hillary/anti- Bernie bias in the Democrat party that Bernie Sanders and his supported have been saying has existed. The Democrat party primary was rigged and some are not so thrilled with the former chairwoman.
The rest of the program will likely poor red meat on the problem in the hopes of distracting progressive activists from the obvious corruption at the highest levels of the party.
Here’s the heart of the line-up that the DNC hopes to use to quiet those that refuse to just fall in line:
DREAMer Astrid Silva
Senator Bernie Sanders
First Lady Michelle Obama
It is going to be interesting to see if Bernie and Michelle can change the minds of those that “felt the bern.”
