A Republican Convention like no other

The 2020 Republican National Convention was anything but ordinary. Across four nights, we heard from many speakers talking about gun rights, the evils of socialism, what once was "the greatest economy of all time" and the rise of the something known as the cancel culture, among other things. The speeches themselves were light on policy and heavy on vitriol for Democratic Presidential candidate Joe Biden and the "radical left." The convention was also light on masks and social distancing, but we digress.
