Someone thought it would be a great idea to invite Charles in Charge and that moderately good-looking Italian dude to this year’s Republican National Convention.

What a lark!

Scott Baio and Antonio Sabato Jr. both spoke at day one of the RNC in Cleveland, and each one left his own special mark.

Sabato, who emigrated to the states from Rome in 1985, called into question President Obama’s religion.

"We had a Muslim president for 7 1/2 years," Sabato told the audience. "I don’t believe he is [a Christian]."

Sabato also declared that both the military and law enforcement officials don’t like the president.

What’s more? Mr. President is totally a baddie!

"I believe that he’s on the other side … the Middle East," the former Melrose Place star told ABC News. "He’s with the bad guys."

Meanwhile, Baio had to relive a few tweets he probably wishes he had deleted as he was grilled by NBC’s Tamron Hall outside the Quicken Loans Arena.

Baio reportedly wrote his speech at Sunday church service prior to the convention, so Hall wanted to know if he was feeling like a good Christian when he tweeted a meme of Hillary Clinton in front of the words "COUNT:"

“Did you think about that in church when you tweeted it out?” Hall asked.

“That was just offered up without commentary,” Baio said defensively.

”You can look at it anyway you want. It’s the word ‘count,’ she’s standing in front of it, I just put it up there.

"There’s no commentary attached to it, I didn’t call her anything, and the fact that you question my faith over posting a picture is not nice.”

Hall was neither intimidated nor amused by Baio’s response, and continued to grill him on national television. 

After calling him out for blocking her on the social media platform, Hall pulled up a tweet from 2010, featuring an unflattering image of First Lady Michelle Obama with the caption, "“WOW! He wakes up to this every morning.”

“That tweet was a joke,” Baio said.

“I’m a guy from Brooklyn, I have a certain sense of humor.

Bitch please, Hall thought to herself before asking, “But does joking about a woman that way make America great again?”
