One reads that many Republicans who have held or presently hold office have other plans that conflict with their convention. In a way that's too bad-- who doesn't enjoy hissing and throwing popcorn at the TV when, say, Ted Cruz or John McCain appears on the screen. Fortunately, Donald Trump has a plan: he is going to invite Mike Tyson, Mike Ditka, Bobby Knight, and NASCAR CEO Brian France to address the assembled. From Deadspin:
Earlier this month, Trump voiced his desire to have “winners” at the convention, and said that he was “thinking about getting some of the great sports people who like me a lot.” His campaign has pulled enough strings to net a convicted rapist, a clueless CEO, and two pricks.
I don't see how this hurts Trump, and it  might actually help him. Absolutely your baseline Trump voter will have greater familiarity with these sports titans than with Mitch McConnell or Paul Ryan, and those guys are boring anyway. This lineup has Fox prime time written all over it, and I for one plan on watching the hell out of it.

UPDATE: Apparently not true. Too bad
