Last night marked the kickoff of the Republican National Convention, and it was an eventful one.
Among other things: A mother whose son died in the 2012 attack in Benghazi, Libya, accused Hillary Clinton of being responsible for his death; Donald Trump’s favorite general led the crowd in a chant of, “Lock her up”; and Trump himself emerged on stage to Queens’ “We Are the Champions.”
Oh, and Melania Trump, who gave a headline address, quickly found herself embroiled in a plagiarism scandal in which she was accused of lifting words from Michelle Obama’s 2008 speech at the Democratic National Convention. The flap caused at least one newspaper, the Daily News, to scrap its earlier front page in order to address the controversy. (Colin Campbell/Yahoo News)
