The 2014 Texas Republican Convention takes place this weekend and things were off to an interesting start with this speaker, a Davy Crockett impersonator who called for the violent overthrow of President Barack Obama and his administration.
Dressed in buckskins and carrying a raccoon skin he called “Buster,” the Crockett impersonator took the stage, calling out, “Good morning Texans! Are you proud? Are you blessed to live in the state of Texas?”
“Crockett” went on to dispense such pearls of down-home wisdom as “Never be a member of a party whose name ends with the word ‘rat.'”
“We must protect the rule of law in this nation,” he said. “In the early 1800s at the Alamo, it ran red with the blood of the freedom fighters. In November of 2014, I want Texas to run red with the greatest candidates that has [sic] ever been seen by any state anywhere as we come and make Texas red again.”
“Now, I’m a little disappointed,” he continued. “I came down from Tennessee to fight with the great republic of Texas against a narcisstic [sic], tyrannical dictator and here a hundred and seventy-six years later I have to come back and fight against a narcisstic [sic], tyrannical dictator again?”
The crowd bellowed and applauded as he asked, “Who’s gonna help me do that?”

Trump blasted for his ‘Endorsement of Doom’ after Sean Spicer loses on ‘Dancing with the Stars’
Team Trump had gone all in urging supporters to vote for former White House press secretary Sean Spicer on the game show "Dancing with the Stars."
Votes had been urged by RNC officials and Trump himself had urged his 66 million Twitter followers to vote for Spicer.
Despite the full heft of the Trump campaign, Spicer lost on Monday's show.
Trump deleted his failed tweet urging votes for Spicer -- and instead said it was a "great try" by his former advisor.
Looks like this endorsement was as successful as your last one!
‘He’s misunderstood’: Nikki Haley tells Fox News how Trump is actually a really good listener
Former Ambassador to the U.N. Nikki Haley defended President Donald Trump during a Monday appearance with Fox News personality Sean Hannity.
Hannity asked the former South Carolina governor if Trump was "misunderstood."
"I do think he’s misunderstood," Haley replied.
"I can tell you, from the first day to the last day that I worked for the president, he always listened, he was always conscious of hearing other voices, allowing people to debate out the issues, and then he made his decision," Haley claimed.
She argued that, "I saw a president that was very thoughtful, looked at all of the issues, made decisions, and it was a pleasure and honor to work with him."
