I didn’t think it was possible to write anything more about the clusterf*ck that was the first day of the Republican National Convention. I was wrong.
On an evening that Donald Trump promised to be the greatest show on earth, with more winners on the main stage than any other political convention ever, all we got were a bunch of D-list celebrities who included Chachi Arcola from Happy Days, one of those bearded “Duck” guys from reality TV and Antonio Saboto, Jr., whose greatest claim to fame is a tighty-whities Calvin Klein ad that hung across from Trump Tower in the nineties.
Where was the stellar lineup of *winners* that we were promised, like convicted rapist Mike Tyson, felon fight promoter Don King and coach Bobbie Knight of temperamental chair-throwing fame? Hell, Clint Eastwood’s empty chair would’ve been more interesting than the group we heard Monday night.
Like his fellow D-listers, Sabato got a personal invitation from the presumptive GOP nominee to give a speech and it’s no wonder why. Who but someone on the #Trumptrain thinks the vote for president in November is a singular choice: Donald Trump.
“I’m very thankful. I thank Christ every day for giving me this opportunity to be here and speak. I believe that our president will be Mr. Donald Trump, and I’m very excited because we’re gonna get this nation back to where it should be. And hopefully, we’ll forget the last seven-and-a-half years.”
Sabàto added that he supports Trump “in every way, and I believe that what he’s been talking about is the truth — nothing but the truth.”
“And I’ve been supporting him for over a year now,” he continued. “I’ve watched, I’ve heard. And also I’ve met him several times over the last 20-some years, and he’s the same guy. So I don’t have to worry about if he’s fake, if he’s lying to me every time I talk to the guy. He’s real. He’s a real American. He loves his country.”
Sabato has even suggested that America should skip the election altogether and just let Trump win.
I’d go over Sabato’s speech, but why bore you? Much more interesting were the outrageous comments he made in his ABC News interview that followed his speech.
Walking lockstep in the birther footprints of Donald Trump, Sabato “absolutely believes President Barack Obama is a Muslim” because he says he could tell whether or not someone was a really a Christian. Either he’s some kind of Christian clairvoyant or that was a dog whistle so loud it could be heard by mushers at the Iditerod.

“We had a Muslim president for 7 1/2 years,” Sabato said. “I don’t believe he is [a Christian].”
Sabato said that for the last 7 1/2 years, he has “seen this country take a bad turn” under Obama’s leadership.
“This guy made it really hard for me to support him,” he said about Obama, saying that the president entered office with an agenda to move the country to the left.
He also said that police officers and the military don’t like Obama and implied that he was not American.
“I believe that he’s on the other side … the Middle East,” Sabato said. “He’s with the bad guys.”
Sound just like Donald Trump himself, right. It doesn’t end there. Just like Trump, Sabato is prolific on Twitter where he regularly bashes Hillary Clinton and Obama. His Twitter page is filled with right-wing bullsh*t, just like this:

Oh, did I mention Sabato was not born in America. His parents weren’t American either. Nope, Sabato was born in Rome to a Czech mother and Italian father. The family moved to the United States in the 1980s, when Sabato was a teen and he became a naturalized citizen in 1996. He’s fathered children with at least three different women, only one of whom he married. What a guy!
