CLEVELAND — Willie Robertson, Scott Baio and Antonio Sabato Jr. are among the speakers at the first night of the Republican National Convention. The evening’s highlight undoubtedly will be a speech from Donald Trump’s wife, Melania. Speculation is that Trump will appear to introduce her.
The theme of the evening is “Make America Safe Again,” with Navy Seal Marcus Luttrell, Benghazi Seal Team Six members Mark Geist and John Tiegen, and Milwaukee Sheriff David Clarke on the bill.
But the presence of Robertson, Baio and Sabato will give the evening a reality-show tinge. Also scheduled to speak is Rep. Sean Duffy (R-Wis.), who was a cast member on MTV’s “The Real World.”
Rick Perry, Sen. Tom Cotton (R-Arkansas), Rudy Giuliani, Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-Alabama) and Sen. Joni Earnst (R-Iowa) also are on the bill, along with Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn.
