Donald Trump Achieves Lifelong Dream Of Breaking A Record For Length

His 76-minute speech Thursday was one for the history books.

In the first minute of his Republican National Convention speech on Thursday, Donald Trump officially accepted the GOP presidential nomination. An hour and 16 minutes, plenty of doom and gloom, a few big promises and one protester disruption later, he wrapped it up, breaking a record for the longest nomination acceptance speech in recent history.

Just after the hour mark, he was already headed for greatness.

C-SPAN later made it official.

Congratulations, Donald Trump. You did it! Your speech is longer than both Bill Clinton’s and George W. Bush’s.

Editor’s note: Donald Trump regularly incites political violence and is a serial liarrampant xenophoberacistmisogynist and birther who has repeatedly pledged to ban all Muslims ― 1.6 billion members of an entire religion ― from entering the U.S.
