CPAC: Tea Party Against Trump

Donald Trump skipped this year’s Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC), ostensibly due to failed negotiations over speaking time and Q&A. A more likely reason is the negative reception Trump feared from a largely hostile audience. Moreover, hundreds of attendees intended to walk out of his speech.

William Temple, a prominent Tea Party activist, told me on Thursday morning that over 300 people had already committed to participate in the planned walkout. By Friday, that number had grown to over 1,000.

I guess it’s true what they say: bullies are cowards.
