With the delivery of a rockin’ 90-minute speech on the final day of CPAC, Donald Trump has officially spoken directly to the American people more than the Hermit King in the White House has in the last six weeks. And what a speech! 31 million viewers tuned in live to watch it on social media. That’s not counting people who watched it on the news networks. CNN couldn’t have been happier. They’ve had nothing to talk about since January, and their whole reason for still existing was finally back in public.
I was thrilled that Donald Trump opened his speech by laying that third-party nonsense to rest. Why bother with starting a third party when he is in total command of the Republican Party now?
From the Washington Times Straw Poll over the weekend: 95% of CPAC attendees support ALL of Donald Trump’s policies. His job approval rating was 97% among attendees.
In case that’s not a clear enough message to the remaining Republicans who are not on board, Trump spelled it out in his speech:
“The Republican Party is united. The only division is between a handful of Washington, DC political hacks, and everybody else all over the country.”
Also good news: Trump will be highly active in fundraising for America First candidates in 2022 and speaking out against America Last loser Republicans who don’t represent “we the people.” He’s going to unleash the thunder. Get ready, RINOs and hacks!
Even better news: Trump is not backing down – and will never back down – from the provable facts that the 2020 election was embezzled from the American people. Filched. Hijacked. Poached. Misappropriated. Choose your synonym. Just don’t say the contest was “stolen” or the social media thought police will ban you.
And the best news of all: Trump is absolutely leaving the door open for a 2024 run against Kamala Harris. A lot can still happen in the next four years, but the nomination is absolutely Trump’s to keep or give away as he sees fit. Ron DeSantis, Kristi Noem and Mike Pompeo were all given the rock star treatment at CPAC, and any one of them would make a great running mate for Trump.
Whether Trump will run or not is anyone’s guess right now. But letting his supporters know that he’s still here and definitely thinking about it, is exactly what they needed to hear right now. The 2020 election is an open scab that’s not going to heal anytime soon for us.
I won’t bore you with a full blow-by-blow analysis of Trump’s speech. You probably watched it live at the same time I did. Instead, I thought it would be fun to spend some time pointing and laughing at the liberal media’s reaction to Trump’s triumphant speech.
CNN has pretty much turned into Trump’s crazy ex-girlfriend. Let’s put it this way: If the Trump family had a pet rabbit, CNN would have snuck into Mar a Lago and tossed the poor bunny in the stewpot by now.
(“We hate you so much, Donald! Please pay attention to us!”)
Here are some of my favorite headlines from CNN’s website after the Trump speech:
“Fact Check: Trump delivers lie-filled CPAC speech”
“Trump unleashes new threat to US democracy”
“The former president repeated his election lies as he looks to position himself for a 2024 presidential run and maintain his role as the GOP’s kingmaker”
Yeah, that was an actual 26-word headline on CNN. They’re adopting Piers Morgan’s desperate British tabloid headline style just to get it all out there.
“Opinion: Trump and his CPAC fans lead GOP down a losing path”
And my favorite CNN headline:
“Analysis: The 50 most ridiculous lines from Trump’s speech”
Ha! Only 50, CNN? You must have stayed up all night long, watching the speech over and over again, to come up with your 50 favorite lines. Don’t worry, though, CNN. You don’t look desperate or obsessively clingy at all. Totally dignified. I’m sure he’ll call you in the morning.
I’d be remiss if I didn’t pick on MSNBC just a little bit as well. Here’s one of their headlines:
“Trump’s thirst for revenge will be the death of the GOP. His CPAC speech proves it.”
In other words, the mainstream media is now showing all the usual restraint that has caused us to totally respect and trust them.
President Trump is not going anywhere, and the movement is not about to diminish in any way. I don’t know about you, but I’m even more fired up for the 2022 midterm elections knowing that Trump will be leading the charge. Let’s rumble!
