Day 2 of the Republican National Convention is here! Melania Trump's plagiarism scandal dominated the morning, but now the GOP gets to take back the narrative! Maybe? Anyhow, here are some of the best reactions on social media to the proceedings! We will continue to update throughout the night, so check back as new speakers get their turn:
Finally, the festivities began.
Speaker Paul Ryan said things are "off to a good start," though he appeared only medium enthusiastic at best.
At 7:21PM EST, Donald Trump became the official nominee of the Republican party.
Following the nomination, several lesser-known speakers spoke. A highlight (lowlight?) was UFC President Dana White.
At 9:25, Paul Ryan spoke again to give a hopeful vision of the future for the GOP. Donald Trump was not mentioned much.
At 9:45, Chris Christie, a former federal prosecutor, conducted a trial the old-fashioned way: by asking a room full of someone's enemies whether or not they're guilty.
He was followed by the most reclusive adult Trump child, Tiffany.
Next, Donny Jr. took the stage for a rousing speech about his father's touch with the common man.
Finally, neurosurgeon and human white noise machine Dr. Ben Carson showed up and, um, implied that Hillary worships Lucifer.
