“He’s a political Kardashian,” Vietor said of Trump. “His campaign has been the longest, grossest sex tape ever released.”

Democrats with the Clinton campaign said they are concerned that they must do something big and “out-of the box” in Philadelphia because they worry Trump could receive overwhelming coverage, be it positive or negative, that could take away from Hillary’s week.

The Republican convention will take place in Cleveland, July 18-21, followed by the Democratic convention in Philadelphia, July 25-28.
