A lifelong Democrat called into C-Span on Monday evening shortly after the conclusion of the first night of the Republican National Convention to announce he’s voting Republican in 2020.

“I’m a lifelong Democrat. I’m from Lorain, Ohio, which is a Democrat city in Ohio and I just want to say, after watching the convention tonight on tv, on C-Span here, I am definitely changing my vote to Republican… I’m gonna follow the Republican party now,” the guest said.

When asked why he made the decision to change parties, the caller explained, “It was the heartfelt way they came across to the American people. And I was really touched by the number of times they used the word ‘God.’ They put God into everything and the people on the Democratic side, on their convention acted like they were pushing God right out of it.”

During two separate caucus meetings at the Democratic National Convention last week, the words “under God” were omitted from the Pledge of Allegiance. It happened at the meetings for the Muslim Delegates & Allies Assembly and for an LGBTQ caucus. God was certainly a feature of the RNC’s first day and is expected to be for the entirety of the convention.

The first night of the Republican convention also highlighted support for President Donald Trump that wasn’t just from members of the GOP. In fact, one of the speakers was Georgia State Rep. Vernon Jones, a lifelong Democrat. But, party aside, Jones said he’s supporting President Trump in November.

“When President Trump took office, he changed everything,” Jones said. “He delivered historic funding to HBCUs (Historically Black Colleges and Universities) and he did it for 10 years, something that has never happened in the history of this country.”

He added, “That gave our HBCUs stability, the chance to grow, and produce the next generation of Black leaders. That’s right, Donald Trump did that. He’s also supported school choice to assure that no child, no matter their race or zip code is left behind. Every child should have access to a quality education.”

The GOP convention will also feature Rep. Jeff Van Drew, R-NJ, later in the week. Van Drew famously was a Democrat who spoke out against the impeachment of President Trump in the U.S. House of Representatives. He switched his party affiliation to Republican after the House passed the two impeachment articles charging the President with abuse of power and obstruction of Congress.

Don Lemon loses it on Senators Manchin, Sinema for holding up voting bill: ‘that’s bull***’

CNN’s Don Lemon cursed out those “moderates” such as Senators Joe Manchin  (D-WV) and Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ) “who are blocking people’s access to the voting booth, they want to use Dr. King conveniently. They’re the biggest hypocrites on the planet.”

“If Sinema and Manchin really want to honor the legacy of Dr. King and all the people who fought for civil rights and voting rights in this country, what they would do is to carve out for voting rights with the filibuster” he continued.

“But for some reason they are stuck with these rules that are backwards…The filibuster has been used to block civil rights legislation forever and so we need to stop that. We evolved. Just because there is a rule doesn’t mean that that rule can’t change. The Constitution is amended. So it’s time to amend the rules. And fight and, and protect the most sacred right that we have as Americans, and that is the right to vote.”

Lemon then quotes Dr. Martin Luther King about a “white moderate, who is more devoted to ‘order’ than to justice….who lives by a mythical concept of time and who constantly advises the Negro to wait for a ‘more convenient season.”

That sounds like the moderates, says Lemon, referring to Senators Manchin and Sinema. “And you’re supposed to be a Democrat who espouses to the ideals of Dr. King. That’s bull***t that’s B.S.”
