beaten it would have been george burns who did it. some reaction to the remarks we just heard. jacob? >> hey, brian, really interesting moment. you were talking about this the last time an openly gay speaker spoke in 2000, it was a represe representative from the state of arizona. my understanding is some of the members of the texas tell gags, this was when george bush, this time when peter thiel acknowledged he was gay, this is amongst the first to stand up and giving a standing ovation. you're a member of the republicans from texas. >> the regional vice chair for the southern region. >> why did you get up so fast? >> peter is absolutely right. this obsession for what i call the gay issue is damaging to the republican brand. it's pushing away people who would otherwise vote republican. at the end of the day it's not that important. the most important is facing our country the erosion of federalism and by clinging to these archaic views and having things in the platform as homo section you'll can be cured, you're pushing away potential voters. >> times are changing and the texas dele

thing was awkward. everybody is going oh, boy. then george h.w. bush gave the speech of his life. no taxes. problems later. but one speech can change an entire convention. >> not as much as it used to. conventions and one-time when candidates come to make their case, but times have changed. now we have dozens and candidates live on our phones, ipads. we know it is very important. and tomorrow, the next day, when he tweets at 4:00 in the morning. it is not as big a deal as it used to be. >> i don't know if i agree with that. there are are very few moments in general election campaign and this is the primary one for candidate to set the narrative for how he is going to govern and how he will run his fall campaign. it is very important for donald trump to pivot to the general election. ta true to the election he has that got him here. to say to the people who are so angry and are looking for answers, precisely how he makes life better and does it in a way that brings people to the party. >> larry, your hero ronald reagan, always add smile on his face, always the optimist. perhaps so

, against george bush there was tough rhetoric. i think it's to some extent been overstated. there's no it doubt, though, that every moment trump has been front and center it's been particularly with the family to testify about him. ivanka, i think, is a huge thing which has been said. he's not going to be, i think, personally negative about her. he's going to try to make the case as much for himself, though, as against her. >> you know, you've watched the culture of the republican party like i have, the anthropology of it. they play golf -- >> they nominate the person. >> they talk sports. you meet a guy, after you get to know the guy for ten minutes, do you play golf? that's the way they relate. it's conforming. donald trump, although he does play golf, is not a conformist. he is not like most republican guys. how does this marriage work? >> well, we're seeing some of it here. i just ran into four delegates from virginia. one was for rubio, two for bush, one had been for scott walker. they're all now for trump with a roll of the eyes, but they don't know him. they've never met him. i'

that which "w" basically created. good-bye to decree trade agreements, which george bush sr. basically began. good-bye to all that. it's an extraordinary transition in a party just in one year. it did have two things you may not like at all, one was anger, whether it was practiced or inability to deal with a tell prompter, i think it was the latter, the inability to act through with the prove cadence. compare that to ivanka, who owned that tell prompter. her elecution was speech school. perfect. every word was pronounced beautifully and exquisitely. she understood the flow of the word, the paragraphing and she worked it as a professional.

created and george bush sr. was the author of nafta. good-bye to all that. it's an extraordinary transition in a party in just a year. it did have two things you may not like at all, one was anger, whether it was inability to act with a teleprompter and compared to ivanka, who owned that teleprompter. her allocation was speech school. every word was pronounced beautifully and exquisitely. she understood the flow of the word, the paragraphing and she worked it as a professional. i again go back to john voight's reading. his looping offer voiceover of those commercials was spectacular, it was confident, calm and credible. trump spoke with such anger, you have to wonder was it purposeful or was it something he was doing to try to avoid getting out of ca cadence. if anybody yells about hillary clinton's yelling again, they have to mention trump's yelling. always think if you're republican or a trump guy, you've got to defend trump because he was yelling the whole time. >> chris matthews in cleveland. steve schmidt here with us, trying to monitor and pay attention to some of the react

demographic issue that the republican party has with hispanic voters. george w. bush won with 44% of hispanic voters. mccain lost with 31%. romney lost with 27%. trump right now is at 14%. >> at 14%. >> and there were some gestures toward diversity during this convention, on several nights of this convention. but i think what you're hearing in this speech is what a lot of people will critique about that message about broadening trump's appeal. >> look, all elections fundamentally are a choice, and that choice is about change or more of the same, continuing the same direction. this was a powerful change speech targeted to an electorate that believes fundamentally that the country is headed in the wrong direction. so nobody should discount the power of this message, the nationalism, the economic p populi populism, the over throwing of the orthodoxies on free trade, the iraq war, the stupid wars we've been fighting, as one of the speakers earlier in the night talked about. i think this was an effective political speech. was not a sunny speech, but the mood of the country is not a sunny

start with you. i went back and watched both george w. bush nominating speeches. what struck me was a lot of it was playing against type to a certain point. to the left, liberals who saw him as sort of an intolerant warmonger, it was about peace, large-heartedness, compassion, all these things. there's quite a faction in the 2004 speech particularly. is that the goal if you are writing this speech tonight? >> if i were writing this speech, it might be. i think there are -- he needs to humanize himself. i think some use of humor would be great in this speech, would defuse some of the tension. >> or self-dep recationself-dep. >> that's tough for him. what we are hearing from early reports is he really doubles down on his main themes. that it's a fairly dark, almost dystopian speech, and he is the answer. it's a law and order speech in which his strength is the solution. >> i think to the extent there has been a theme of this entire convention, that has been it. this painting this dystopian vision of what america is, going into very graphic detail about violent episodes from terrorists o
