Half of the 12 “key speakers” planned for the Republican National Convention will be Trumps, Fox News revealed Saturday.
Twitter critics went bonkers.
Donald Trump — along with Donald Trump Jr., and Melania, Ivanka, Eric and likely Tiffany Trump — were all listed as main speakers at the big event that begins Monday, other media reported as well — though the schedule was still being finalized over the weekend.
Adding to the family ranks will be Vice President Mike Pence, House Minority Leader Rep. Kevin McCarthy, former U.S. ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley, South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem, Iowa Sen. Joni Ernst and South Carolina Sen. Tim Scott.
Ironically, McCarthy earlier this year blasted Joe Biden for nepotism because son Hunter Biden worked for a Ukrainian energy company when Biden was vice president. But everything he ranted about could be applied to each of Trump’s adult children.

It was Tiffany Trump who was trending on Twitter because critics were particularly stunned that a 26-year-old law school grad beat might beat out far heavier political hitters (and celebrities) simply because she’s the president’s daughter. She’s pretty much a no-show at Trump events — except to visit the queen and possibly be a headliner at the RNC.
Twitter scribes couldn’t get over it.
Imagine being Devin Nunes and spending four years doing everything in your power to protect Trump and then having Tiffany Trump beat you out for a key speaker spot at the RNC. pic.twitter.com/S2qq1bP5FO

The Republican Party is gone. It’s been replaced by the Trump Party. Even Tiffany outranks Mitch McConnell. pic.twitter.com/IdYZsbTKwr

HALF of the RNC speakers are members of Trump’s OWN FAMILY, including Tiffany, Eric, Melania, Ivanka, and Don Jr. This is the most embarrassing lineup of speakers in the history of political conventions.
