Good convo speakers lined up this week.

Donald Trump Jr. Wednesday and Nikki Haley Friday. I may make an appearance at convo this week.

Best lineup this year.

Just don't hunt at opening up the floor for a Q&A, Trump Jr gets a bit bent out of shape.

Nikki Haley should be interesting. Trump's kids don't really move the needle for me.

Definitely Don Jr.

I’d typically be ok with Haley, but given that she’s on the support Trump tour and combining it with the same week as Don Jr makes it part of the gross. Just too much politics when there are so many other things we could be exposing our students to.

We had a sweet spot from like 2012-2015ish where we had a great rotation of pastors, speakers, and entertainers with a sprinkling of politics. The different types of guests were well balanced then.

Wednesday's lineup is a copy and paste from CPAC in March. Jerry's gotta finish the semester strong I guess...

I have no idea. I mean context and author would be helpful. Maybe even a transcript or video/audio clip?

Trump Jr was making a joke and said he hated eveyebody equally. It was a joke and not a big deal.

I mean it wasn't a funny joke but he wasn't being serious.

There are legit things to be critical of when it comes to that family, why people continue to focus on petty things will always baffle me.

Yeah, he’s not as clever as he thinks he is. He’s certainly not his father

In 2020 we need Trump to win, and get a GOP controlled House and Senate. Then make an all out effort to destroy every liberal agenda there is.

Trump will get reelected but you're living in a dream world if you think the Republican party can control the house and the Senate.
