Low Attendance, Low Energy, And Kimberly Guilfoyle: CPAC 2023 Flops

Low Attendance, Low Energy, And Kimberly Guilfoyle: CPAC 2023 Flops

CPAC 2023

At CPAC 2023 in National Harbor, Maryland, Trump surrogate Steve Bannon openly went after Fox News, presumably because they have “shadow banned” Donald Trump and they see a media opportunity to gain audience.

Nikki Haley gave it her all, but chants of “We love Trump” echoed in the hallway and she greeted attendees.

The full CPAC experience is taking place in the hallway near media row.

Haley drew tepid applause while leaning into transphobia, a key theme of this year’s CPAC. The party of freedom is very upset about people living freely.

COVID has killed an estimated 6.88 million people worldwide, but it isn’t nearly as dangerous as “wokeness”, according to Nikki Haley.

Mike Pompeo is low key calling Trump a loser here and admitting Trump lost in 2020. Not sure how well that will go over with this den of deniers.

Pompeo tries to put sunlight between himself and Trump, but can’t quite find the courage to say his name.

Please clap.

Thank our lucky stars the left doesn’t have anything this cringey.

Nick Fuentes tried to steal the spotlight again this year. Matt Schlapp gets not credit here, his speaker line-up is full of folks who never miss an opportunity to deliver a screed against George Soros, which have always been based in anti-Semitism at their core.

Don Jr. and Kimberly Guilfoyle delivered their list of grievances to dozens of admirers.

Norman Mailer, seated, Ed Fancher and Dan Wolf, founders of The Village Voice

If you are lucky in your life, you come to know one or two people who made you who you are other than your parents who gave you the extraordinary gift of life. Edwin Fancher, who it is my sad duty to inform you died last Wednesday in his apartment on Gramercy Park at the age of 100, is one such person in my life. He was one of the three founders of The Village Voice, the Greenwich Village weekly that became known as the nation’s first alternative newspaper. The Voice, and he, were so much more than that.

How Is That Whole 'Law And Order' Thing Working Out For You, Republicans?

Former Georgia Republican Party chair David Shafer

One of the great ironies – and there are more than a few – in the case in Georgia against Donald Trump and 18 co-defendants is the law being used against them: The Georgia RICO, or Racketeering and Corrupt Organizations Act. The original RICO Act, passed by Congress in 1970, was meant to make it easier for the Department of Justice to go after crimes committed by the Mafia and drug dealers. The first time the Georgia RICO law was used after it was passed in 1980 was in a prosecution of the so-called Dixie Mafia, a group of white criminals in the South who engaged in crimes of moving stolen goods and liquor and drug dealing.
