Last night, the Republican National Convention began. The series of speeches delivered by President Donald J. Trump, his son Donald Trump Jr., and others may not have had the effect with some voters that the GOP was expecting. Somehow, the message delivered during night one fo the Republican National Convention led to The Purge trending on Twitter. The Purge, if you're unaware, is a series of dystopian horror movies in which all crime is legal for one night a year, leading to some truly grisly acts. It is unlikely to be a movie that any politician would want to be associated with their platform or campaign.
Former Arrow star Colton Haynes got in on the trend, putting out a video of himself realizing the Purge was on and that he needed to get out while he still had the chance. Others posted similarly. Keep reading to see some of the reactions to The Purge trending following the first night of the Republican National Convention.

If you watched the B-version of “the Purge” last night and walked away believing that Joe Biden is the second coming of Fidel Castro, then you should probably call 911 immediately. You need to get the Kool-Aid pumped from your stomach ASAP! #RNChaos— Mrs. Krassenstein (@HKrassenstein) August 25, 2020
