As Democrats warned during the impeachment trial, if Trump wasn’t stopped, he’d behave like a king.
So, no surprise that’s come to pass at CPAC, surrounded by a bigly gathering of grassroots supporters in MAGA and KAG hats.
Trump wondered aloud if it wasn’t a miracle that he’d gotten so much done despite so much he’s been through, saying, “Maybe it’s right there, right?” he asked, pointing to the heavens. “Thank you, God.”
Trump stayed away from the Conservative Political Action Conference in 2016, but embraced the role of a monarch on Saturday at a ballroom at the National Harbour. The crowd roared approval when Trump vowed revenge.
“They’re coming after me and we fight them back,” he said. “And now we’re going after them because we have no choice. We have to straighten out our country. But despite the best efforts of the leftwing fanatics, their scams, schemes, slanders, they’ve all been discredited, totally discredited.”
He singled out James Comey, Bob Mueller, and when he mentioned the banned Mitt Romney, the crowd booed as Trump called him a lowlife.
He railed against fake news.
And then he turned to the Democratic candidates trying to unseat him.
He pulled out the same names, Sleepy Joe, Crazy Bernie, and Mini Mike. To parody Mike Bloomberg, he crouched behind the podium to make himself look small (I know, right?) and the crowd went wild chanting “Four more years! Four more years!”
Trump even held an instant poll by asking the audience to “scream” for whether he would beat Biden or Sanders more easily. There was a significant scream for Biden but a much louder and sustained one for the democratic socialist senator from Vermont.
Trump suggested that Sleepy Joe would be in an elderly home, and Crazy Bernie just might be a communist, which went along with the theme of the conference, “America vs. Socialism.”
In usual rambling fashion, he went on about how Greta Thunberg beat him to the cover of Time’s person of the year.
And in the end, he went to hugging the flag while the happy crowd went wild.
