The Trump Campaign on Sunday released the list of scheduled speakers for this week’s Republican National Convention. Among those speaking on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday will be Donald Trump, Donald Trump, Donald Trump, and Donald Trump.

All four nights. Democrat heads explode in 3… 2… 1…

“You’ll have President Trump speaking at various parts for each of the nights,” Trump campaign chief spokesman Jason Miller told “Meet the Press” host Chuck Todd.

While the news of Trump speaking every night will undoubtedly be well received by his supporters, the Trump Derangement Syndrome crowd will all but howl at the moon over the news — but the TDS crowd pretty much howls at the moon 24×7 over all things Trump, so there’s that.

Among the scheduled speakers:

First Lady Melania Trump, the president’s children: Ivanka, Tiffany, Donald Jr., Eric — and Eric’s wife Lara Trump, as well as Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., former UN Ambassador Nikki Haley, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, Rep. Dan Crenshaw, R-Texas, and former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani.

On of the primary objectives of the 2020 Republican convention will be exactly the same as one of the primary objectives in 2016:

Demonstrate that Trump is not the (pick one, or more): “racist,” “Islamophobic,” “homophobic,” “xenophobic,” “misogynistic,” “megalomaniacal” “buffoon” the Democrat Party and liberal media work so hard to convince America he is — and worse.

Miller told Todd the convention will also focus on dispelling the myth created by the media of what a Trump supporter “looks like.” (See: “Hillary,” “basket of deplorables.”)

“One of the things you’re going to see this week is a complete change in the perception that I believe that the media tries to tell about what a Trump supporter looks like or who a Trump supporter is we’re going to talk about the American story.”

Miller also suggested there will be “breakout stars” who might surprise some people with their support of the president.

“We are going to see a great uplifting message from the president and from our allies, and Chuck when I tell you some of these stories that you hear they’re going to be some breakout stars, some people that you would not expect to be supporters of the President, and it’s going to tell a very beautiful story.”

While Trump will deliver his acceptance speech on Thursday from the White House South Lawn — which nearly sent Nancy Pelosi into an apoplectic fit when she found out —  the final night of the convention, he is scheduled to speak each night at 10:00 EST.

No doubt CNN, MSNBC, the New York Times, Washington Post, and every other liberal news outlet in the country will find something over which to rip Trump and the Republicans, every night of the  convention, but as Trump reminded Time magazine’s Washington bureau chief in 2017:

“I’m a very instinctual person, but my instinct turns out to be right. Hey, look, in the meantime, I guess I can’t be doing so badly, because I’m president, and you’re not.”

And that is precisely why the Democrat Party and its media sock puppets will spend the next four days ripping Trump even more than they normally do: he’s president, and they’re not.

The reality is, liberals have never been able to wrap their elitist heads around the fact that the “bloviating reality TV host” beat the “most qualified person in modern history to run for president” in 2016.

How grand would be if Trump does it to them, all over again?

They counted him out in 2016, and while they think they have him on the ropes in 2020, still — in that part of your brain you don’t like to visit in the middle of the night — they’re afraid he’s going to do it again.
