The Trump show: CPAC off and running hard to the right. This is your GOP, and it isn't pretty

The annual gathering of the Conservative Political Action Conference opened Friday morning with a hard charge to the political right as some attendees booed the organizers for asking them to wear masks in the auditorium and one of the speakers, Republican Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, mocked Democrats for seeking increased security measures at the Capitol in the wake of the Jan. 6 insurrection.

And we are still two days away from the greatly anticipated appearance of former President Donald Trump, who will speak at the event on Sunday. It is likely to be the most viewed media event of the weekend.

Trump and his allies have already used the gathering to demonstrate his hold on the Republican Party despite his defeat at the polls in November and his widely denounced instigation of the mob attack on the Capitol that led to five deaths and dozens of serious injuries to Capitol Police officers.

For better or worse, even the warm-up acts like Cruz and Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis are getting widespread live and video coverage. Beyond cable TV, many websites such as “The Hill” are offering livestreams and videos of the conference. There should be no problem seeing Trump’s performance live on Sunday. Just Google CPAC and you will be offered an array of choices. The right-wing cable outlets like Newsmax, OANN and Fox News are sure to be all over the speech.

3. I'm going to avoid watching CPAC if at all possible. Life's too short.

That especially includes trump's ravings on Sunday. Again, life's too short to waste much time on such things. The news channels will have the "highlights."

10. I would rather remove a hemorrhoid with a mirror and a rusty pocket knife than watch that lie fest;

It would be less painful and more gratifying.

5. Apparently, this is what the typical Republican voter wants for their political leadership.

A bunch of 2nd rate entertainers happily willing to make Democrats the problem for everything while they offer no counter vision. They have no vision for this country, just lies to maintain their individual positions of power.

9. I really, really don't want to see this.

But I feel like if I don't turn around and look, that boogey man sneaking up behind me is going to do something really bad and I won't be able to get away fast enough.

Childish bad dreams aside, I just feel like we should know what fiendish things are coming out of his 'mouth'.
