On Thursday, a partial list of speakers was released which contained some soap stars, reality personalities, athletes, and some billionaires, who will all be on hand to ring in the presumptive republican nominee, Donald Trump as the official presdential candidate for the part  for the presidential election come November.

Brown, who is very familiar to soap fans as the villainess Sheila Carter on The Young and the Restless and The Bold and the Beautiful will speak, as will former General Hospital and B&B star, Antonio Sabato Jr. who has also recently appearing in the Chippendales act in Las Vegas and the reality competition show, Dancing with the Stars, Celebrity Wife Swap and My Antonio.

Dylan … don’t forget, Sabato and his parents were immigrants to this country ….. yet he’s wanting us to support Donald Trump, a man who hates immigrants and wants to deport them all.

The hypocrisy is unbelievable.

Why the hatred for Trump? You call him a racist. Why? What has he done or said other than securing our borders from illegal immigrants? I don’t understand people like you. Hillary Clinton is a liar, cares only about her own personal gain, and could care less about America. Astounding comments by you regarding Trump. But, that’s your opinion. I hope you won’t resort to name calling and nastiness towards those who disagree with you like most progressives.

I am a Republican and concerned that the RNC was just a show. I want to hear how Trump will bring jobs back to America. I eventually will have to vote for him but I am disappointed with the Hillary bashing. I get it, she is the enemy but when are we Republicans going to talk about the real problems. Instead, the put semi-famous actors to speak who do not espouse a Christian lifestyle.

God save this party.

Rebecca1

Joan…I say this with respect but please understand no speaker has to espouse a Christian lifestyle nor should they speak of one ala Sabato.

Su000/Jimh…As two who seem to appreciate some offbeat/bizarre things thought I’d mention that if you want to know what is banned at the Republican Nat’l Convention google it and look at CNN, USA Today, etc. There are at least 25 item categories (things I would never have thought of, and in a way black-comedy humorous)…..except it’s still okay to open carry guns which is legal in Ohio. Wonder why law and order, Gov. Kasich (remember him, he was a Rep candidate for president) doesn’t make an executive, emergency, safety exception, for the convention?

su0000
Guest
su0000

Hi Rose..

Kasich- the Ohio governor does not have the power to arbitrarily suspend federal and state constitutional rights or state laws .
He hasn’t the executive power to stop the open carry law.
I feel many will be armed, but still he doesn’t have the power to order no guns.

My thoughts were not at all disrespectful to you, but I did vent on the current Ohio governor for what many consider his oddly obstinate, sore loser behavior and general lack of etiquette in refusing to host/attend the GOP convention in his own home state. He certainly displayed a lack of class and grace in defeat as far as as… Read more »

Don’t need it with everything else that’s going on.

For the record, Trump was not fired from “The Apprentice.” Due to declaring his candidacy, he couldn’t both run for president and fulfill the requirements for appearing on the show because of campaign advertising laws. It had to be one or the other, and he chose “Making America Great Again.”

I had just heard the news about Sabato, and I immediately came to this site to see if there was any information posted. This controversial move by both actors will lose them a ton of fans and, at the same time, gain them some fans. Whenever actors or others in the public eye veer into political territory, they undoubtedly alienate approximately half their fans. Witness the outspokenness of Nancy Lee Grahn and how many in the fan base are turned off (or turned on) whenever she speaks on political issues. I acknowledge that actors are certainly entitled to pontificate politically… Read more »

@Jamesj75…..As always, you are a voice of gentlemanly reason. Kudos, my friend!!!

Having said that, I also defend any individual’s right to do so, famous or otherwise, and I must add that even when I don’t necessarily agree with said views, I often gain respect for a person for sharing the courage of… Read more »

Shay…Looks like we have to play musical comments to reply sometimes. I’m not a fan of Kasich. The media never “fact checked” about what many see as his negatives is Gov of Ohio. But I totally agree with you about him not showing. He’s supposed to be the-Buck-stops-here person to represent Ohio, Cleveland, and at least the reps in the state that were at the convention and welcome those in attendance. He didn’t have to say anything else. Really bad form on his part!

Hi Jamesj75, great, well thought out post as usual. On the subject of Nancy Grahan, from what I see her “approval rating” on social media, from Twitter to Facebook, is huge. She probably has more fans than a few actors combined; her following hasn’t waned a bit. While it’s true she got into hot water over her Viola Davis comment, she eventually addressed it wirh humilty and grace. She does call it like she sees it, like we all do here; but she doesn’t hide behind anonymity and sticks to her viewpoints. Yes, she’s very outspoken, has strong opinions and… Read more »

And thanks for giving me additional information on Nancy Lee Grahn. She is to be admired in many ways, particularly for how she handled the repercussions of her initial tweets on Viola Davis.

I have heard Mr Sabato’s support for DT (I won’t say his name it’s too offensive to my tongue) and I would expect that from someone like Mr Sabato who is not all that bright. As for Kimberlin Brown it surprises me because she has always appeared to be an intelligent lady but everyone has their weak spots. Even myself. I, however, will not be watching the RNC because it matters not to me.

Just because Kim chooses to support a party you dont support, that doesnt make her less intelligent! This is what is wrong with our country.

I said nothing about being a hater, a racist or anything of the sort however someone like Kimberlin Brown appears to be a reasonably intelligent lady and her support for someone such as that man is surprising but it’s a free country and one I love so she can vote for whomever she chooses to , it’s her right. It isn’t the party either, it’s the candidate. Period.

Many of the Republican Party nobility have come out and publicly stated that they will “never” vote for DT: (Mitt Romney, George W Bush, Laura Bush, Jeb Bush, Michael Reagan (son of Ronald Reagan – conservative radio talk show host), Charles Koch, Ana Navarro (CNN republican commentator), Margaret Hoover (granddaughter of… Read more »

I do see what you’re saying, su0000, but remember: not everyone sees The Donald and/or his remarks as bigoted; that’s a judgment call, after all. (I do, for the record, find his comments quite bigoted, though whether he himself is a bigot is still an open question in my mind; I sometimes think he says things just to say them–i.e., even he himself may not believe them.)

It’s what people want to hear. Also, we want our jobs back; we want a strong economy; we want our borders ‘restored’…..many believe in white supremacy etc., and Donald says all the right things.

Nixon spoke those famous words, “I am not a crook.” I think there’s a good possibility that our next president will say those same words, considering both candidates, but the lesser of the two evils is the one with less money, a smaller ego and believes all lives matter.

No contest, indeed, CeeCee!!!! I harbor nothing but the fondest of memories for the Reagan years….it was the most wonderful time to come of age….we had a nation of peace, prosperity, propriety, patriotism and pride of country. One could feel free to go almost anywhere and do nearly anything within the parameters of legality, morality and good taste and be safe. Maybe that’s because, for the most part, we had real adults in charge then….primarily from the “greatest generation,” and no matter their political stripe, most behaved like ladies and gentlemen….well, not Ted Kennedy, but we’ve already discussed that particular… Read more »

@Shay.
Oh, I hear you, Shay.
As what I wrote to 4ever, Leoncavallo says it best in his opera, RIDI PAGLIACCIO.
It is a circus, Shay. The idea to resort to (as someone already said), has been celebs, to be spokespeople, is beyond me.
Soon we will have Kim Kardashian and/or cohorts to rewrite the constitution with the help of her husband; who, may I add, plans to run for President, in the future.
I took him seriously because some people are so full of themselves, they will attempt to reach the sky.

How true, 4ever. To think that a ‘farm boy’ had wisdom enough to garner that brain of his through the glass panes of a school house with a purpose…..sounds much like a fable. Lincoln’s heart and mind were in the right place….most importantly; his was not led by ego or foolishness. His vision for this country was simple, yet strong. My grandfather (Stuart) was a true Reagan loyalist. He swore by him. I cannot tell you how miserable this election is making him. But, he will vote. It is the patriotic thing to do. And, we are the most steadfast… Read more »

@Rose….Not in the same way we were taught, Rose! I was extremely fortunate in that I had history and civics teachers who were passionate about and proud of our country and its origins….they made their subject matter come alive, captured our imaginations and encouraged us to discover more about America and its amazing founders at every opportunity with much supplemental reading, reports and creative projects. My parents further fueled my immense interest with annual trips to storied national historical landmarks in places like Philadelphia, Boston, Gettysburg, DC, just to name a few. Throughout my entire childhood, I was surrounded by… Read more »

@Rose. Good question, Rose. I would hope most schools do. My older nieces and nephews (ranging from 9-13) have already had a taste of our history via heritage week, where everyone had to prepare a chart of his/her ancestry; and, how the families came to be in America. Personally, I can personally attest that at ROSEMARY HALL , American History, ( and its government) is very high in the curriculum; full speed ahead. …..always was a priority and still is. The problem is, there is not much interest in learning the story of this nation, any longer……it’s rich, colorful history….the… Read more »

The reason I asked the question “if they are still teaching such subjects” is Celia has children, nephews and nieces and I thought she might know.

LOL. ) I have seen this first hand as I did attend The University of Toronto for a couple of semesters ( terms, as they are also called…lol).

@Rose. As a teacher myself, Rose, I can say that many times, it depends on the school and the curriculum. I cannot really speak for grade schoolers, in general, but many do dedicate time to ‘current events’. I teach High School ( on call, right now), so, of course, they still do teach ‘such subjects’ It makes no difference if the school is private, public or otherwise. It is up to the Board to decide what to teach, and the teacher has a certain responsibility to incorporate what she/ he feels is of importance. The only advantage a private school… Read more »

This might sound simplistic, but if the curriculum that it seems some of us received (and mine was public school which is still ranked one of the best in the state) got us to space, medical/scientific breakthroughs, along with a good understanding of “reading, writing and arithmetic,” why change it to the level those… Read more »

@Celia….Yes, there is a very distinctive Neville Chamberlain-like tendency to refuse to see/admit what’s happening right before our eyes, but then again, there is the most disturbing and illegal over-reliance upon executive directives and orders for actions that couldn’t pass Congressional muster.

I can certainly appreciate your sentiment, you are very fair. But, everyone is voicing an opinion, not judging. That’s how I read these comments.Then again, my Lady….I am still learning.

Running the country and politics used to be considered a “noble profession” which came with respect. Pretty sure that is not the case anymore. And unfortunately there is such a blur between politics, pop-culture, and entertainment if you are trying to form intelligent opinions from the media and social media.

As for actors coming out publicly for candidates and causes, that’s a freedom they have. But at their peril, fan and career wise.

Both won me over with their lovingly detailed descriptions of their father…..I continue to like “The Donald” more and more despite the very obvious efforts in the media and right here on this website to denigrate him with nasty innuendos.

Actually my sister taught English literature, as well as catch-up English for those she “inherited” from highschools who passed them in the subject, but shouldn’t have. And also professional majors like scientists, engineers, etc. so they could better communicate their findings to lay people.

Ugh, how many times must I lament the non-existant edit option…anyway, point is CeeCee, Alexis has always been there, you just couldn’t see her. I’m really glad you can now. As Diane ssid today, love isn’t logical. And Alexis shouldn’t be judged for falling for Julian. I still believe he loved her madly and did change for her. He just couldn’t stick to it which brought about their downfall and his unhinging. You’ll see even more as time goes on how likeable Alexis is…and how tres witty in a snarky but cute kinda way!

@Rebecca 1. I have ALWAYS liked Nancy. But, I admit it. I must be seeing Alexis through different colored lenses. Nonetheless, she was oblivious to ‘decorum’, for lack of a better word. Rehashing is not good for the soul. Do, I shall start fresh. The point is; I am at a better place where this character is concerned. I just want to see Alexis move forward; she is heartbroken, and perhaps a little disappointed she is not pregnant; unbeknownst even to herself. As far as Julian loving her? The monster in him was always there. It rears its ugly head,… Read more »

Thank you for the backstory. I knew a bit of it. At least, who the girls’s fathers were. I did not know she and Ned have been an item, at one point.
However, I thought Julian had introduced her to “carnal delights”, LOL. I assumed she was a virgin. Wasn’t Alexis just a kid when Sam was conceived? I thought she pined for Julian, her anonymous lover in the night ( the cad).
But, if events followed this pattern; technically, Julian was her first. Did I get it wrong?

Well if Trump gets in all of us can look forward to a pole in the White House where his attractive wife can entertain our enemies, now have I lightened the mood hope so !

has to be a slow….. going to be a long hot summer… with doldrums and expectation

all 4 serials are hitting and MISSING

i’ll get my dig

Ms. Hillary Rodham Clinton…. Bravo to you Ms. for forging onward

I know that your backbone and care of the political system… is what you are about

Our first Lady President… gets my vote

I know that Bernie Sanders is rough-hewn and untrimmed around the edges, but, he always struck me as a very honest, leatned and caring politician….a rarity.
He just had no simpatia with the populus……unfortunate really!!

Oops: I need to amend that. Within twelve years since I was able to vote, this will be my third time…..is what I meant to say.

I agree with your assessment of Bernie, CeeCee. There is no way I ever could have supported him given my personal political views, but I will say I think he was robbed and his voters disenfranchised at the hands of his opponent. Even those who vehemently disagreed with DJT on the GOP side— like Jeb Bush—had to admit that he won his nomination fair and square, the old-fashioned way….by getting the most primary votes (at a record level for Republicans) with no subterfuge or game-playing the system ala Cruz or Kasich.

LOL 0oohh geez. It’s going to long ride to November with
Drumpf and Drumpfer = Trump & Pence
/ they will eventually devour each other , a really dangerous match ahaa!

Celia
Guest

Cute, SuzieQ. Cute.
Actually, if Trump will be elected, I think Pence is a good choice….he is no fool.
I seem to remember a quote from Willy, “A fool thinks himself to be wise, but a wise man knows himself to be a fool”. Bit of a riddle/conundrum; as is Willy’s wont.
It’s a ‘catch-22’, su. I better make up my mind. Country first!!

Celia…My take on choosing Pence is that Trump is trying to get the mid-west, religious right/Evangelical, vote and that he can control Pence. As for Pence he is at least getting name recognition for 2020. And I have to add my brother lives in Indiana so I get to hear his take on Pence…let’s just say as someone who lives their he’s not a fan…Pence is far too conservative and my brother, not so much so. Wonder how Christie feels? He was first Rep of note to join the Trump reality show. Hope he was at least promised a cabinet… Read more »

I agree with you Rose. Very strategic (manipulative) move on the Trump campaign to choose an Evangelical. As zi said, separation of Church and State. I really fear the direction this “team” is taking us.

Our American history is not all grand and both the positive and the negative needs to be taught to ALL students. I doubt those who were slaves, couldn’t drink out of a white water fountain, sit in the front of the bus or at a “white” counter would portray as rosey a picture as some would like to paint

Celia

Absolutely right. This country’s history is spotted with big giant DOTS of negatives. But, overwhelming positives, at the same time. No different from every other country in the world, since the beginning of time. The US does not have a pristine history. Her story is long and hard. Yet, I am proud to be an American. We have come a long way….to be civilized. There are many rogues (collectively) and/ or lone wolves; but, theoretically; I look at the rest of the world, as well. Can’t help but compare the ‘liberties’. I also empathize with everyone’s demoralization and frustration. I… Read more »

I agree with a lot of what you said CeeCee; very proud to be an American. When I hear about some of the horrific goings-on in other countries I can’t believe we’re living in the same century. Unfortunately the world has never been at peace; each period seems to have its barbaric events. My point was/is that our grand history is, again, unfortunately, tainted with violence and persecution. Whether it was slaveryracism, wit h hunts, (literally and figuratively), anti-semitism, discrimination of all types…we have a way to go. Good vs evil…we can only hope good prevails…. As for Hillary, none… Read more »

@Celia….Just wanted to briefly say that given your intellect and inquisitive mind, I know you would be the last person to simply cast a vote based upon “identity politics.” I give you so much more credit than that….your posts have been filled with thought-provoking and truly substantive observations on both major candidates….I’ve enjoyed reading them and benefitting from your personal insights….even those with which I heartily disagree!

@Shay. Hey, ma belle: I agree with you more than you know. But, I see you CAN read between the lines. I am not a friend of “THE HUNT”, albeit it was legal. But, that’s a story for another topic. I agree with your assessment of Mr. Trump. I also agree that I, too, find it infantile to argue over what other people’s choices as a candidate. The idea to choose freely whether it is faith, political stand or food (lol) is what ‘built’ THE MAYFLOWER. FREEDOMS!!!! I thank you for respecting my opinions, albeit you may not agree with… Read more »

Ceecee…If you appreciate “reading between the lines”..start reading. Your friend is following someone around this post to put another wedge in between two people who previously didn’t get along. The “hunt” was not brought up as a reason to vote or not vote for any particular candidate…it was in direct response to a statement about how “wonderful” Trumps ogfspring are. Two different issues. Again, to someone who loves animals a “wonderful” person wouldn’t t go out and slaughter them for fun and then pose, ismirks and all, as they hold up the murdered beautiful animal.

Rebecca 1 You are so right about D.T. with his racist slurs but before you hit everyone who likes him can you read the book “Hillary the other woman-A political memoir by Dolly Kyle” his ex girlfriend. I know you’ll say it’s made up because she’s his ex. but please keep an opened mind D.T. says what he says out in the open. Hillary C. called a school bus load of disabled children “F- – – – en retards. They we’re on an Easter egg hunt and being disabled they we’re slow. She thought the mic had been turned off… Read more »

@Nikki…..This sort of information has been out there for years….Dolly Kyle’s book is just the most recent in a long line by personal acquaintances, political bedfellows (no pun intended) and perhaps, most credibly, secret service and other security personnel…..all available for the taking on the subject of this particular former first couple and their history of truly revolting behavior! As far as I’m concerned, the entire reading list should be required for anybody voting in this year’s general election…..especially for those who so easily dismiss and condemn DJT for far, far less.

That is so abhorring, Nikki, my dear friend.

I think everyone on these boards knows how I feel when any child is ‘kicked in the head’. Children are my weakness. I do much to soothe their hearts and stimulate their brains…..the very children you have just depicted. For shame.

Rebecca1
Guest

Nikki I replied to your post about Hillary allegedly making those horrendous statements about the children…which is what those types of statements/thoughts are…horrendous, but my post didn’t make it. Trying again. My point is I googled that after reading your post and didn’t see angy credible source, any video, any audio…verifying it. Anyone can say they heard her but that doesn’t mean it’s true…and then the rumors fly. That’s fact checking 101…who’s the source.

Trump on the other hand had been on TV flailing his arms mocking a disabled man. I trust what I see rather than hearsay…

Well I wont be as rude as you Rebecca1 but as we speak Europe is in another terrorist attack. Although we have the military from France, England, Russia & ours we can’t seem to stop the attacks or Isis. Could it be because their Muslim & so is Obama? Late last evening Turkey had a military take over which has now ended. Obama was said(on the news) to be in touch with the head of Turkey. Turkey use to be half Christian/half Muslim now their head (president) is being criticized because he is mostly Muslim and wants his country that… Read more »

All good points, Nikki. I liked what Sanders ‘professed’; but in the end he tucked his tail between his legs; whimpering and limping his way to Hilary.
But, my dear friend; what was he to do? His ‘catapult’ onto her lap was the only thing he could do, at that point. He is a Democrat…..the winds of fate were not going his way.
But, I say this, Nikki. If Hillary wins, I hope against hope she chooses him as her running mate. The man knows what he’s about….and what the country is about….he gets it.

Nikki…If I remember right Bush/Cheney/Rumsfeld, or should I say Cheney/Rumsfeld/Bush, got “tough” after 9/11 and invaded Iraq, instead of chasing down suspects in Afghanistan. And look where we are now. What a mess. We’ve alienated more than we’ve won over, and lots of US military and innocent men, women and children have lost their lives. Then we have the internet and social media helping to fuel the fire in the the world with their random guerrilla warfare that doesn’t need armies. Too late on this, Pandora’s Box is open.

Ummmm, was I rude to you Nikki? Where? I disagreed with everything you said in your last post and I disagree with everything you said now. That’s not rude. My emphasis on him not being qualified is in relation to my disgust that this tactless man is nearing the Presidency. It’s surreal. I know full well the atrocities that are happening all over the world; Trump is not qualified to talk to a foreign leader let alone try to combat terrorism. Our own military doesn’t even back him citing his utter lack of experience. I don’t think Obama is Muslim.… Read more »

One more thing Nikki. Do you have any idea how often Trump has lied? Do you think he’s honest? By the way, where are those pesky little tax returns???? And yes, Sanders is endorsing Clinton, as she would him if it was the other way around. When they were competing he was, to quote that wise old sage, Randy Jackson, “in it to win it.” Now, his main objective, like many of us, is to keep Trump out of the White House.

O.M.Goodness this is starting to sound like the good, the bad & the ugly. D.T. does use colorful language, he’s a big mouth and a bully but if you ever watched “The Apprentice” with his famous “your fired quote”. that is what he’s famous for. If he had come on and said “Hi I’m D.T. and I’m running in the election”. I don’t believe he would have the following he has. People are tired of the murders, terrorist attacks etc. Their afraid to send their kids to school! My daughter went to a concert Friday night and I have to… Read more »

Gregory Harrison Is The New Gregory Chase On General Hospital

General Hospital just got hotter as it beef’s up its storyline featuring Kim Delaney as Jackie Templeton.  Now comes word that TV veteran, Gregory Harrison has come to the ABC daytime drama series as the recast Gregory Chase.

The character of Gregory Chase was previously played by DAYS James Read, who plays the treacherous Clyde Weston now and then on the NBC soap.

With Harrison taking on the role of Finn (Michael Easton) and Chase’s (Josh Swickard) father, that makes things a little juicier in the romantic department.

According to EW.com who broke the casting news, Harrison begins taping today Wednesday at the ABC studios for General Hospital and fans can look forward to his debut on-screen in a few weeks.

As to the storyline: “Fireworks could be on the horizon for Harrison’s character.”

TV fans remember Gregory from the hit series Trapper John M.D., then later on Falcon Crest, Judging Amy, One Tree Hill and more.  He also has frequently appeared in Lifetime and Hallmark Channel movies most recently.
