Trump kids, Chris Christie, and Lucifer, together at last.

Posted on July 20, 2016, at 12:36 a.m. ET

As you may have heard, Donald Trump officially became the Republican nominee for president today.

So the day came to a close, albeit somewhat awkwardly.

when you've been practicing gaveling all day but can't quite nail it

People in the crowd were STOKED.

Make the dancing stop!!! #RNCinCLE

People at home? Meh.

never seen so many old white people dancing off the beat in my life. Someone's about to break a hip live on @CNN. #RNCinCLE

The theme for the evening was "Make America Work Again."

But, uh, it seems like someone forgot to tell the speakers about it.

Tally for Make America Work Again night: "work" (or working, etc.) mentioned 48 times "Clinton" mentioned 79 times https://t.co/hLDkUctOSD

In fact, they were pretty much just interested in talking about one thing.

Make America Work Again Or Maybe Just Hillary Clinton Is Bad

Or shall we say one person.

Donald Trump showed up via satellite from Trump Tower in NYC, because of course he did.

Wow, the special effects at the #RNCinCLE are out of control.

There were some questions, and some probable answers.

Then it was time for Speaker of the House Paul Ryan.

don’t talk to me or my son ever again

Paul Ryan: "Hey, I'm a positive guy. I can find things to do." #RNCinCLE

(Bless his heart.)

Paul Ryan: “Let’s take the fight to our opponent with better ideas.” GOP nominee: “Fart balls."

He's trying so hard!

RNC crowd reacts to Paul Ryan's policy speech

Well, sort of.

There are more syllables in "Donald Trump" than the number of times Paul Ryan mentioned his name in his convention speech

But really, it was jilted VP pick Chris Christie who was arguably the most anticipated speaker of the night.

For obvious reasons.

Thank you, Chris Christie, for your service.

And then this happened.

Video shared by @WEWS shows the crowd chanting "Lock her up" at #RNCinCLE

Which, you know, is slightly problematic when it comes to Christie.

Ah, so Christie will criticize Clinton for escaping prosecution over misconduct

AND THEN HILLARY CLINTON WENT THE FUCK IN ON HER TWITTER ACCOUNT.

If you think Chris Christie can lecture anyone on ethics, we have a bridge to sell you. https://t.co/c1nkZojJFL #RNCinCLE

And then it was time for Tiffany Trump.

Going from Chris Christie to Tiffany Trump is like going from Slayer to Miley Cyrus

Tiffany, the First of Her Name, is the younger of the two heiresses to House Trump.

Tiffany Trump on @realDonaldTrump: "I have admired my father all of my life, and I love him with all of my heart."

TIFFANY: my dad is nice. he once called me when I was sad. and wrote nice things on report cards growing up. am i done? god bless america.

And she did a pretty good job!

Tiffany Trump sounds like she's reading sides for a toothpaste commercial

Next up, THE BROTHERS TRUMP. (Not really, just Don Jr., but this tweet was too good not to include.)

On a lighter note, Trump's sons look like stars of a B-movie about vampires terrorizing a New England prep school

Trump Jr., who arguably gave the best speech of the night, talked a lot about his all-American, hardworking youth, and, well, questions were asked.

Because, let's be real, neither Donald Trump nor his son had an experience that most Americans can relate to.

Trump was just a "boy from Queens." With a $100 million inheritance.

That feeling when you kill the symbol of your political party before killing your actual political party.

Donald Jr.: “We're the only children of billionaires as comfortable in a D10 Caterpillar as we are in our own cars.”

And then things got weird.

RNC Convention: Tonight's theme is Random People.

Like, really weird.

Meanwhile at the RNC, Ben Carson just said Hillary Clinton worships Lucifer. Yes, he really did.

Ben Carson just said Hillary serves lucifer. Let me repeat. A prime time speaker at RNC Convention accuses other candidate of devil worship

I hadn’t understood why Hillary did Benghazi until Ben Carson added the valuable Lucifer context.

It ended even weirder.

Founder and only member of American Muslim for Trump #RNCinCLE

drink if you had "the Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him" in RNC bingo

WHAT A NOTE TO END ON.

As the head of "American Muslims for Trump" speaks, a delegate is shouting "no Islam" at the top of his lungs. He is now being shushed.

And it wasn't just people online who were underwhelmed.

Trump convention planners are doing something wrong. This is a primetime shot of the hall. Empty.

The RNC is basically a Florida Panthers home game

Same, dude. Same.

I've been channel surfing all evening, then just turned to the RNC. After listening to these speeches, All I can say is this: I'm really
