Donald Trump Greeted by Giant 3D Printed Bobblehead of Himself at Republican National Convention By Clare Scott
So it begins…this morning marked the official start of the 2016 Republican National Convention, right here in my hometown of Cleveland, Ohio. I admit I’m nervous – for weeks, both the local and national news have been teeming with dire speculation on what might happen over the course of the week the convention is here. Regardless of your political views, it’s impossible to deny that things are very tense in the United States right now – in fact, I would say that tense is an understatement.
While many news outlets tend towards sensationalism and hyperbole, it’s still very unsettling to hear your hometown described as a “powder keg” or other violent and explosive metaphors. Any positive energy is much appreciated! With all of that said, though, there are some definite benefits to having one of the biggest political events of the year (arguably, the decade) in town.
