The Funniest Tweets About the Republican National Convention's First Night

The Republican National Convention kicked off in Cleveland today, and Lord, help us through these next four nights.

Tonight we saw Rudy Giuliani’s head explode live on stage, Scott Baio and Antonio Sabato Jr. thawed out from wherever VH1 keeps their Celebreality cold storage facility, and Melania Trump read a speech that was renegotiated into her marriage contract earlier today (and which was apparently cribbed in part from Michelle Obama’s speech at the 2008 DNC). All in all about what you’d expect from the soon-to-be officially crowned Party of Trump in the year 2016. Over 40 years of intentional GOP division has lead to this point, where the person best suited to head up the Republican Party is a TV star and fake mogul who has no problem saying whatever racist, sexist stuff the basest part of the party’s base wants to hear. And there’s three more nights of this!

Here are the good tweets that helped us make it through the overly long, overly loud, overly hateful night, courtesy of these kind souls:
