Democrats have announced their lineup of speakers for the upcoming convention, and it blows Donald Trump’s Republican convention out of the water.
Here is a preview of the Democratic schedule for their convention in Philadelphia:

DREAMer Astrid Silva will share her story and her fight to keep families together.

Gavel time expected at 4:30pm
While Donald Trump can’t even get Tim Tebow to speak, Hillary Clinton will have the political stars in the country in her corner. There is no comparison between Trump’s convention and what the Democrats will be presenting.
Trump will feature Mitch McConnell and Paul Ryan, who are two of the least popular politicians in the country. Clinton’s convention will feature two of the most popular political figures in the US in President Obama and Vice President. Trump has pig castrator, Sen. Joni Ernst. Clinton’s got First Lady Michelle Obama. Trump has the reviled Ted Cruz. Clinton’s got popular populist Sen. Bernie Sanders.
Trump will have zero current or former presidents at his convention. Hillary Clinton will have two in Philly. Trump wanted stars at his convention. Instead, he got Bobby Knight, Dana White, and the fringe of the Republican Party. Democrats are excited about their convention in Philadelphia, while Republicans enter Cleveland with a sense of doom.
Trump’s sideshow of losers is no match for Hillary Clinton’s convention of stars.
