Moments ago, Nicholas Sandmann delivered one of the most memorable speeches of the night.
As a teenager, Nicholas Sandmann attended the 2019 March for Life, and quickly became vilified by the media for wearing a MAGA hat.
Watch the intro:
Social media, the news, and celebrities launched a campaign of persecution that was completely false against a boy in a MAGA hat.

The RNC intro for Nick Sandmann included a montage of tweets blasting him including ones from Alyssa Milano calling the MAGA hat “the new white hood.”
In his speech, Sandmann decried a media that he said did not care to find the truth in his case. He also says nobody has been more unfairly treated in the media that President Trump.
Sandmann said “The truth was not important. Advancing their anti-christian, anti-conservative, anti-Donald Trump narrative was all that mattered.”
