President Donald Trump’s appearance at CPAC is quickly becoming a thing of legend.
The crowd at the Conservative Political Action Conference erupted in chants of “Lock her up!” after the president joked about a line he first said in 2016 about Hillary Clinton and the Kremlin.
“I’ve learned, because with the fake news, if you tell a joke, if you’re sarcastic, if you’re having fun with the audience,” Trump said. “If you say something like ‘Russia, please if you can, get us Hillary Clinton’s emails, please, Russia, please, please get us the emails.”
Can’t Joke Around
When Trump said that he cannot say a single word in jest without being slammed by the media, he was not kidding.
Today’s media breaks down every word and every aspect of his body language when he takes the microphone.
Well, he really gave them all something to pick apart when he was giving his speech at CPAC. It sounded more like a Trump rally than it did a conservative convention!
Trump has clearly won over a significant part of conservative America. Will that be enough to win him re-election, though?
Some general polls now have him almost 10 points behind a generic Democrat candidate, but he has fought off bigger odds than that before.
Much of the scrutiny Trump currently faces is because of Michael Cohen’s recent public testimony before Congress.
Cohen has taken out this big bag of lies and absolutely shredded Trump.
Those with common sense believe Cohen is continuing to make things up to evoke empathy for his own case, but liberals and Democrats in office are eating it up.
One of Cohen’s tales involved a conversation between Trump and Roger Stone about the WikiLeaks email dump during the campaign.
But Both Stone and Wikileaks have debunked Cohen’s version. Even Robert Mueller has come out against Cohen!
Yet, through it all, people like New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez refuse to even question a single word coming out of Cohen’s mouth.
Get ready for the ride of your life Mr. President, because it is not going to get any easier once election season really kicks in.
