Trump Campaign Lining Up Tyson and Ditka for Convention

“Instead of a political convention, Donald Trump is preparing to stage the world's worst infomercial in Cleveland. Several sports personalities and musical entertainers have agreed to appear at this summer's convention.
Donald Trump’s campaign aides are lining up a slate of iconic sports figures to appear at the national convention in Cleveland next month—including former undisputed world heavyweight champion Mike Tyson, legendary Chicago Bears coach Mike Ditka, former Indiana University basketball coach Bobby Knight and NASCAR chief Brian France, people familiar with the planning told Bloomberg Politics.

Talks are in the works with a broad slate of other celebrities and top athletes, so the list of those appearing at the convention will grow, organizers said. But much of Trump’s current list of sports champs seems to be more targeted at male voters age 45 and older, rather than minority and female voters……………

Everyone says they expect the GOP Convention to be a 4 night infomercial........

He is going to turn the Convention into the Ed Sullivan Show

Things Get Dire For Trump’s GOP Convention As Mike Ditka Turns Down Speech Offer

Donald Trump asked Mike Ditka to speak at the Republican convention, and the legendary football coach turned the Republican nominee down.
The Chicago Sun-Times reported:
Continuing to speak about their mutual respect for one another on a phone line that was interrupted by brief periods of ambient silence, Trump interjected respectfully: “Coach, if you’d like to speak, it would be my great honor.”

Ditka: “I’m not big into doing things like that. I’m not going to change opinions, opinions are like assholes. I believe in the way the constitution was written. But people want to change that. Immigration. Same thing. People want to change things. I believe in you and what you are saying.”

UPDATE

Trump: I'll reveal 'totally filled' convention speaking spots next week - POLITICO
Trump: I'll reveal 'totally filled' convention speaking spots next week

“Donald Trump says he has lined up all the speakers for the 2016 Republican National Convention — and will reveal them next week.

The party's presumptive nominee tweeted Saturday that speaking slots for the upcoming convention in Cleveland are "totally filled," and there's a "long" waiting list of more speakers. Trump previously announced a line-up of speakers including former sports stars, many of which later said they had not been contacted about speaking roles……….

…………Earlier this week, POLITICO reached out to 50 prominent Republicans regarding their plans to attend and/or speak at the event. Few said they were interested in attending……..

How is it I have the funny feeling Donald is being less that truthful.......

Trumpty Dumpty has filled some of the spots by having his entire family which will help fill the slots....

And of course there is Mike “I'm a Muslim for Donald Trump” Tyson............

But there are many more speaking slots which need to be filled.........

And I suspect th Donald has yet to find speakers..........

Now here's an idea......

Hew can get Bill at the ....low low every day price of $300,000.......:lamo

I am fairly sure subpoena powers can be used in this situation............


But if so.......

Bill could take the Fifth.........
