What is wrong with the Republican Party – ‘Trump Rips Republicans In Rambling CPAC Speech’


Here’s his speech. Don’t bother watching unless you need to lose and never get back 15 minutes of your life.

‘In perhaps the oddest moment in the strange speech, Trump suggested that “the problem with the country” is that the Obama administration turned down his offer to build a $100 million ballroom at the White House’.

‘After the birther conspiracy theorist’s odd, rambling, speech Friday, it’s a safe bet that he won’t be asked back any time soon’.

‘Trump also discussed immigration reform, insisting that creating a path to citizenship for undocumented immigrants is a “suicide mission.”

“Every one of those 11 million people will be voting Democratic. It’s just the way it works,” Trump said. When it comes to European immigrants, however, Trump could not have sung a more different tune. “Why aren’t we letting people in from Europe?” Trump asked, noting that he has friends who sent their sons to Harvard and Wharton School of Business, but then had to leave the country.

‘Predictably, most of Trump’s speech focused on his favorite subject: Donald Trump. At various points he boasted he single-handedly turned around the Doral resort in Miami, that his “friends” in OPEC — which includes Venezuela and Iran — have given him special insight into U.S. foreign policy, and that he filed a financial statement in 2012 showing that he’s made over $8 billion (a bold-faced lie)’.

‘Although Trump did receive a few bursts of laughter and applause, the “crowd” of conservative activists sat through long stretches of his address in uncomfortable silence’.

  1. Barneysday on said:

    CPAC is rapidly becoming irrelevant, and featuring speakers like Trump, Sarah Palin, Allen West, and Rick Santorum, all far right teabaggers who have only their extremist views to keep them warm, while ignoring serious issues and serious candidates, is the proof in the pudding.

    • Aside from Rubio and Rand, none of the speakers there will figure in the future of our debates in policy.
      And Rubio is too immature and Rand? Take away the 15 minutes (13 hours) of showmanship and actually look at what he believes in – and he makes Barry Goldwater seem sane.

  2. I’d love to see the IRS coming for Trump after its share of the $8B he made.
