  1. The True conservatives will not tolerate the nonsense of the trump show… As it completely distracts from their core values.

    1. What was a true conservative during the time of slavery, segregation, apartheid, sexism, racism, homophobia, transphobia, during the time of the confederacy, during the time of colonialism, was it any different from now or do you just like to believe that it used to be good and only just recently was turned evil?
      I want to know if your idea of a true conservative really is accurate.

  2. It’s no secret that CPAC has essentially turned into a, “Let’s all stroke Donald Trump’s ego” festival.

    1. @Harold Well the difference there would be the DNC did the same thing with Trump with the first election. Then so did Al Gore against Bush. It’s something that has always been part of USA politics. They only took a break with Obama, because any criticism means you would be racist.

    2. @John Herold Sorry I try not to engage in political debate with people online under the age of 18. Have a nice day.

    3. @Oliver one can only guess what Lindsey Graham is doing behind the scenes 🤷‍♂️

    1. Guaranteed Victory for Freedom this go round! You can thank lover boys, Trump and Putin for that.

  3. Insurrectionists Absolutely Should Not Still Be Holding Government Office And Sitting Judgement Of U.S Civil Servants!

  4. I find it funny that they’re willing to go with the guy that’s lost the presidency, lost the senate and almost the house.

  5. Can you imagine how he will react when he loses again? This time in the primary. He will freak and run as an independent in hopes of avoiding prison. Or, he will back whoever agrees to give him and his children pardons. Gerald Ford ‘s cowardice will be repeated.

    1. @Kiss My Axe You’ll see for yourself because, I refuse to give you the answer so you can dismiss it or ignore it. JUST STAY TUNED ULTRA MAGA 😎 😉

    2. @queen samara what kind of sense does that make? You’re not going to answer the question because you think I’m playing a game? Lol do your parents know you’re screwing around on the internet?

  6. They might be skipping CPAC but they’ll be on their hands and knees ready to do Trump’s bidding if he wins the nomination (most not all there’s a few that haven’t drunk the kool-aid)

  7. Keep it up, GOP! You’re helping everyone see how lost the Nazi, I mean MAGA, I mean republican party truly is. Thank you!

  8. See packed, room at the Courthouse in Georgia. Seeing Murdough in the cuffs & jumpsuit was like seeing into the future.

  9. That’s what you see when people are in a cult, it’s unbelievable to see so many it’s sad 😔 I wish people would see how important it is to have policies that keep us and our kids safe and vote for someone who actually cares about All Americans not just Himself geeze come on America wake up and move on
