I don't even want to post videos of the speech. So I’ll tell the tale in tweets.
Trump's CPAC speech is every bit as incendiary as his January 6 speech just before the insurrection. He's pushing the same lies about the election.— Aaron Rupar (@atrupar) February 28, 2021
I'm guessing that didn't work out so well, if only because his speech ran for 90 minutes.
Trump aides have a list of topics they hope the 'all over the place' ex-president will keep to himself in CPAC speech https://t.co/ePjyveKPEu— Raw Story (@RawStory) February 28, 2021
Or because of what he said:
Trump ditched the traditional end of his rally speech and is no longer doing the "we will make America great again" bit. His CPAC address is finally over after about 90 minutes. pic.twitter.com/UVVwHZLtsL— Aaron Rupar (@atrupar) February 28, 2021
So much unity!
Trump doing the hit list of those who voted for impeachment, each R by name, at the end. "Of course the warmonger, a person that loves seeing our troops fighting, Liz Cheney. How about that?" Trump praises WY state GOP for censuring her. "Get rid of them all," he says.— Maggie Haberman (@maggieNYT) February 28, 2021
Here's a new idea! Let's unify against somebody!

Math is hard, since he's never won the popular vote and he only won the electoral college once. And how will be pull off this fake three-peat?

Unity! Well, for me, but not for thee.
I think the takeaway here is not just the direct ask but more the idea that other groups asking should * not * get money if they want it connected to Trump. Notable for a few reasons, but one of which is the RNC. https://t.co/0BkZ4uoknK— Maggie Haberman (@maggieNYT) February 28, 2021
