America’s largest gathering of the biggest idiots is the Conservative Political Action Conference, or “CPAC”. Donald Trump is CPAC, and will attempt to become “the GOP” there, on his way to return to the presidency the following week. Who will stop him? There is no room for anti-Trumpers in the Republican party. There is no room for somewhat-Trumpers in the Republican party. Most Republicans don’t even want themselves in the Republican party. There certainly is no room for reality left in the Trump party, which poses quandaries for fact-based journalists.

It will be a bonanza for lawsuits, though. The Supreme Court declined to halt the turnover of Donald Trump’s tax records to New York state prosecutors.

Texans hate how much they like AOC, presently, because of Ted. Ron Desantis can’t pay off his supporters with vaccines either. Compared with those guys, Trump gets away with murder.
