Many Democrats have called Donald Trump nothing more than a TV reality star, but if you watched the proceedings in Philadelphia last week you have been presented with fantasy TV. Speakers such as the Obamas, Vice President Joe Biden and former President Bill Clinton all described a candidate with whom Americans are unfamiliar.

The Hillary Clinton they mentioned is not someone we recognize. They want us to forget her history of trying to defame and denigrate women who accused her husband of sexual harassment, to forget her lies to parents of those who were murdered on her watch in Benghazi, to make believe we never heard the director of the FBI contradict almost everything she told the American people during the investigation of her e-mail server. She may not have been indicted, but she was accused of carelessness and reckless behavior with state secrets.

Clinton’s advantage is that Hollywood and the media will try to continue to promote the fantasy. Her problem is that the convention has ended, someday the powerful speakers will have no platform, and the American people will eventually be left with the real Hillary Clinton.

No matter how ingeniously you describe a roach as a butterfly, you are left with a roach.
