The first night of the Democrat Convention went off like an infomercial for the 1990’s Republican Party. The mistakes were many and the content was boring and old. Not a good start for the Democrats who are backing a terrible candidate for President.
Democrat Presidential candidate Marianne Williamson said it all in one tweet:
I wanted to like it. I really did, I promise I did.

The comments related to her tweet were hilarious:

Some comments accused the DNC of attempting to redress the failed 1996 Bob Dole campaign:

Reviews from the left weren’t good:
Viewers of the first hour or so of the 2020 Democratic National Convention were likely asking themselves what they were watching and why. The CNN telecast was indistinguishable from a 1990s infomercial: bad video quality, cheesy music, almost improbably absurd dialogue (“Joe Biden is a healer and a unifier”) delivered by bored-sounding C-list celebrities. The whole experiment made April’s awkward socially distanced NFL draft seem like classic television.
When it did not feel like a paid late-night spot for Ross Perot, the vibe was very much “MTV circa 1982.” Eva Longoria stood in front of a painfully low-budget set and mumbled banalities in between Bruce Springsteen music videos.
One thing the start of the convention did not resemble even remotely was the posted schedule on the official website. The first speaker, Mayor Muriel Bowser of Washington, D.C., did not even appear in the itinerary. The two names actually at the top of the schedule, Sens. Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.) and Catherine Cortez Masto (D-Nev.), appeared to be skipped in favor of Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D-N.Y.).
And the Democrats somehow thought this was going to win over the Midwest:
