Pompeo gives Trump a tongue bath in fiery CPAC speech

Mike Pompeo leaned heavily into the pro-Trump lane in a lengthy speech at the Conservative Political Action Conference on Saturday afternoon, repeatedly touting the “America First” foreign policy agenda he pursued as Secretary of State.

The potential 2024 presidential candidate tossed out plenty of red meat for the Trump's brain dead base in a wide-ranging speech that rehashed many of the Trump’s administration's accomplishments and drew some of the biggest applause thus far at CPAC.

In a speech promoted as focusing on the Bill of Rights, Pompeo heavily laid into Democrats, arguing they “pretend they care about jobs in America” and ripped the Biden administration for cutting a key permit for the proposed Keystone XL pipeline. He slammed his predecessor as secretary of state, John Kerry, now Biden’s climate envoy, for suggesting in a January press briefing that fossil fuel workers who lost their jobs can "make ... solar panels."

“You ask the good people in the middle of Texas, Oklahoma, or Kansas, or South Dakota, or Pennsylvania, you think petroleum engineers and rig hands are going to make solar panels?" he added.

Sounds like Pompousasseo needs a geography lesson. In addition there are very few permanent jobs that will come as a result of Keystone.

6. Does he think that people in Texas, Oklahoma, Kansas, and SD can't make solar panels?

Those are good jobs that don't require digging through mines or handling large quantities of toxic chemicals.
