CPAC Chairman Tells Bill Maher, Trump Kept Big Promises, So His Crimes Don't Matter



Conservative right-wing activist and chairman of the American Conservative Union, Matt Schlapp, appeared on Real Time with Bill Maher Friday night and did what all of President Trump’s apologists do: compromise away all of the president’s bad behavior because he kept promises that conservatives hold dear.

Schlapp is an experienced right wing spinster. As he proudly mentioned during the interview, he’ll go on any cable news show, left-leaning or right, to spread a conservative ideology, even at the expense of the truth. As he said to Maher, “It’s actually pretty important… It was a pretty close election [in 2016] and an election can be determined on these strategies. You should be smart enough to go everywhere you need to go.”

After hitting on some newsy topics where Schlapp consistently made excuses for Trump, Maher brought out a faux book entitled “If Obama Did It” and proceeded to recite a laundry list of the current president’s awful policies, missteps, lies, and treasonous acts, while asking Schlapp to respond to the book’s title:

If his campaign manager went to jail
If his lawyer went to jail
If his national security adviser went to jail
If his albino assassin Roger Stone went to jail
If he had an affair with a porn star and paid hush money to a porn star
If he used an unsecured phone
If he gloated with the Russians in his office after firing the head of the FBI
If he had unchaperoned talks with Putin
If he said “I believe Putin”
If he gave his children jobs in the administration

2. What has Trump done that gets their loyalty?

What has he really accomplished? Deportations? Cruelty at the border? OK, he has done/is doing that. Oh yeah, rolled back regulations that used to protect us. OK. Yeah. Lowered taxes? Yeah. For the wealthy, OK, there's that.

What else?

5. Right-wing judges and tax cuts

To most of the GOP, that's enough to put up with or condone everything else Trump does.

3. After watching.........

I don't think that Maher gave the strongest argument against IQ45. I do understand that he is a "host" - and a host should be gracious to his guests, but I believe he let Schlapp walk on several issues.

An example: After reading "What if Obama Did" - naming things you see listed in the OP, he did not press the issue/non-response from Schlapp. THIS IS CRITICAL! THESE ARE CRIMINALS! THEY ARE A PART OF LEADING THIS COUNTRY!!!!!!!

So, loving Maher as I do - he let him off easy.

He (Maher) never brought up the 9000+ lies. Again, being "Mr. Nice Host."

But that's what this show is - entertainment, not a forum for good government.

Go, Bill - do your thing. Every little bit helps.

6. No

No, it is not the case that Donald Trump's crimes do not matter because he kept his major promises. His crimes do not matter to Republicans because he is a Republican. If he had failed at everything they would still give him a pass on the crimes.
