We pay attention to politics when it gets weird.
This week, it is..
Donald J. Trump is, as the time I write this, being nominated by the GOP to be the nominee in November. That in itself may be as strange as things go — although the HORROR REPORT did accurately get that right during the 2015 predictions for ’16 .. I thought Rubio would be the VP. Never thought Pence.
But speaking of Mike Pence, that is where some weirdness of the week begins.
Early this week before the Republican Convention began in Ohio, a bit of high strangeness greeted the internet. A photo of Mike Pence and his family circulated around the world.. and with it, confusion. Somehow, his daughter vanished.. Look close: She’s gone. At least in the mirror.
His daughter Charlotte appears to make no reflection in the mirror behind them.
Pence and his wife Karen’s reflections can both be seen, but Charlotte’s is non-existent.
Perhaps even weirder: The boy in red who can be seen in the reflection.. but NOT at the table.
This may be evidence, fine folks, of some Photoshopping .. Campaigns do it. Why? Maybe he wanted to make sure his family image was secure.. And without a daughter that would be tough. Perhaps a campaign added in a family member or two..

The weirdness got weirder last night with the entrance of Donald Trump.. it looked like a rock concert. The only problem with that was that his wife, Melania, gave a speech in which a large portion was hijacked from the 2008 Michelle Obama Democratic Convention .. And with it, an entire day of backtracking, embarrassment, defensive statements, and calls for speech writer terminations. Networks knew almost immediately that the speech was plagiarized.. My conspiracy theory: It was on purpose. Some speech writer tried making Melanie and Donald J. look bad.. After all, only hours earlier, some tried pushing an anti-Trump vote on the convention floor..
