Lesson #3: Delegates Have TV’s
The TV in the hotel lobby was on and a reporter was covering the flag burning incident and making a mountain out of a molehill as usual.
A fellow volunteer turned off the TV off and voice an opinion about how us volunteers are not suppose to give the delegates the impression they are going into mortal danger.
Huh?! Mortal Danger?! Quicken Loans arena and the surrounding 1 mile perimeter was the safest place on earth convention week.
About 5 minutes later a delegate scurried into the lobby chatting about watching TV coverage regarding the flag burning in her room and how the media was making a mountain out of a mole hill.
Not only do delegates have a TV in their rooms, they watch them and have the intelligence to know the difference between “mortal danger” and the media making a mountain out of a molehill about a small protest where a person set themselves on fire while burning a flag.
She reiterated how safe and secure all the delegates felt.
