The brilliance of having Michael Flynn speak after Melania Trump
On the surface, it makes sense that the night’s speeches should have ended after Melania, the evening’s most important speaker. Instead, Flynn comes on and speaks forever in his monotone voice, boring the heck out of everyone.
The media still thinks this was a mistake by Trump and the RNC. They don’t realize yet that they have been played.
If the speeches ended after Melania, then the news media would have shown a bunch of talking heads talking to each other for the rest of the evening. And what would they talk about? They hate Trump and would spin everything in a manner unfavorable to Trump.
So instead, they put Flynn on, and they know the media would have to cover his speech because they think Flynn is someone important because they know he was almost picked to be Vice President (which would have been a horrible mistake). Flynn’s actual purpose was to cockblock the media and prevent viewers at home from listening to their anti-Trump spin. Flynn’s job was to bore everyone and make them turn off their televisions.
