Top Republicans REFUSING To Attend RNC, Mitt Romney Rumors

The Young Turks discuss the list of top Republicans who have decided to skip the 2016 Republican National Convention in Cleveland. Cenk Uygur, Ana Kasparian, Ben Mankiewicz (What the Flick?!) and John Iadarola (Think Tank) hosts of The Young Turks, break it down from the YouTube Stage at the RNC. Tell us what you think in the comment section below.

"The Republican National Convention starts next week in Cleveland, but quite a few key attendees will be missing.

This, of course, is because of Donald Trump. The billionaire tycoon has been frustrating and flustering prominent Republicans since the moment he emerged as a frontrunner late last year. Their disagreements with Trump range from the political to the stylistic to the personal, but many Republicans who find their candidate unsupportable have decided on the same course of action.

They just won’t show up."*

  1. Bob Dole isn’t there by choice, he has dementia and doesn’t know where he
    is.

  2. The Republican National Committee has announced it’s changing the emblem of
    the Republican Party from an elephant to a condom. The Republican National
    Chairman explained that the condom more clearly reflects the Party’s current
    stance… owing to the fact that a condom accepts inflation, halts
    production,protects a bunch of pricks, and gives you a sense of security
    while you’re actually being screwed.

  3. lol Trumps wife plagiarized the first lady’s speech!!!! Says alot. 😂😂

    • She’s not bright enough to have written it, and too self absorbed to have
      ever heard the First Lady’s speech.

    • is there anything the gop doesn’t want to go to war on? I mean… besides
      racism, poverty and corruption.

    • +Jose Munoz don’t worry. I’m confident that a ban on porn may be one of the
      only things that would cause Americans to riot on a country wide scale.
      just look at what happened in Russia when they tried to ban porn. it lasted
      a few days.

    • RNC: “We need more scapegoats, cognitive dissonance, moral panics and
      bikeshedding.”

  4. You would think the Republican nominee was black with the way all these
    Republicans are avoiding the convention.

  5. Doesn’t mean much…. the whole reason Trump was elected was because people
    are tired of the establishment candidates. So the establishment doesn’t
    endorse Trump… shocker.

  6. Nixon wouldn’t endorse Trump either. For a joke imagine a conversation
    between Nixon and Kissinger about a Trump candidacy.
