Trump to Speak at CPAC

David Brody, the fake “journalist” who works for Pat Robertson’s Christian Broadcasting Network, breaks the news that Donald Trump has been invited to speak at this year’s Conservative Political Action Conference again. The press release he quotes says:

Donald Trump is an American patriot and success story with a massive following among small government conservatives,” said ACU Chairman Al Cardenas. “I look forward to welcoming him back to the CPAC stage next week. Mr. Trump’s previous CPAC appearance was hugely popular among our attendees and we expect it will be even more popular this year.”

And Brody gushes:

Donald Trump is more than a crowd pleaser. Conservatives like him because he’s bold and speaks the truth. He throws political correctness out the window.

Shouldn’t legitimate authenticity be considered the mark of a true “statesman?”

Authenticity? As a description of Donald Trump? Wow. The haircut alone pretty much ends any talk of authenticity.

    If she got bumped for Trump, I can understand Pam Gellar being pissed.

    To be actually accurate, Brody would have to restate his quote to be:

    Donald Trump is nothing more than a crowd pleaser. Conservatives like him because he’s bold and says the things they want to hear. He throws grace and refinement out the window.

    I wonder how many tax breaks this “small government conservative” has gotten for his businesses that prey on the innumerate? And whenever someone claims that he throws “political correctness” out the window, that is code for saying, “He is a bigot and wants to be unapologetic about it.”, not code for “He is a truth-teller.”

    “Shouldn’t legitimate authenticity be considered the mark of a true “statesman?”

    Is legitimate authencity similar to legitimate rape?

    Pam Geller kicked out, GOPROUD not let in, Trump as a speaker… I guess Grover Norquist put his foot down and the kibosh on all of those ‘social conservative’ issues. Probably took too much focus away from the only real conservative value: tax cuts.

    Maybe Pammy could sneak in, disguised as Trump’s spare toupee..

    Lies liberals find objectionable ≠ Credible conservative statesmen boldly speaking truth which is not politically correct. Faux journalist indeed.

    The dishonest description of behavior Mr. Brody refers to here is a popular description of Sarah Palin’s lies. That objections to her dishonesty was convincing proof to many conservatives that she spook the truth; an authentically Orwellian reaction.

    Ed’s reference to the ‘haircut’, while funny and a very common Trump reference, shifts the focus from Trump’s legitimate crazy. Birther, buffoon, business failure, public leech, political failure, and with an ego inversely proportional to his IQ. The hair is the least of it.

    Should we start a betting pool at what minute of his speech he makes a birther joke?

    I say the 1st minute in.

    How long can Trump keep milking the right-wing rubes t before he melts down at some perceived slight by a more established conservative icon? I’m honestly surprised it hasn’t happened already. The man has skin thinner than tissue paper.

    What is C-PAC’s message? All their speakers this year are political losers. I know that one should not be ashamed of losing if one has made the extra effort, given 110% to the game. But, the GOP acted like it wanted to lose and seemed to make no effort at all in 2012.

    This is not the face one should be projecting for 2014. This says ‘we can’t do any better, so why try?’.

    Is not a fake “journalist” by definition a real journalist?

    Trump, the “small government conservative” who used eminent domain to kick people out of their homes so that his Atlantic City casino could have more parking spaces.

    Sounds perfect for CPAC.

    “He throws political correctness out the window.”

    Nothing could be more “politically correct”.

    @15…and who is using an arm of the government (the legal system) to sue Bill Maher for 5 million dollars after Maher jokingly said that he would pay that amount if Trump could prove that one of his parents wasn’t an orange-haired orangatutan (i.e., a reference to Trump’s hair).

    Neil Gaiman:

    I was reading a book (about interjections, oddly enough) yesterday which included the phrase “In these days of political correctness…” talking about no longer making jokes that denigrated people for their culture or for the colour of their skin. And I thought, “That’s not actually anything to do with ‘political correctness’. That’s just treating other people with respect.”

    Which made me oddly happy. I started imagining a world in which we replaced the phrase “politically correct” wherever we could with “treating other people with respect”, and it made me smile.

    You should try it. It’s peculiarly enlightening.

    I know what you’re thinking now. You’re thinking “Oh my god, that’s treating other people with respect gone mad!”

    Hmm, let’s try that:

    Donald Trump is more than a crowd pleaser. Conservatives like him because he’s bold and speaks the truth. He throws treating other people with respect out the window.

    Yep. Sounds about right.

    Only among nutters would a person who inherited a shitload of money be considered a “success story.”

    Trump is a clown
    Such a political down
    To take him so seriously
    Must make serious folks frown

    From his toupee to his toes
    This birther sure knows
    That his time is a-closin’
    Just as S. Palin surely blows!

    - With apologies to Digital Cuttlefish who does this so much better & permission granted to y’all to spread this doggrel as far’n'wide as y’please.

    The pro-business party, who think businessmen can solve all our problems without no stinkin’ big gummint, can’t find a better figurehead than Donald Trump? Seriously?

    This is not the face one should be projecting for 2014. This says ‘we can’t do any better, so why try?’

    Actually, I think it’s more like “We can’t do any better, so we have to keep anyone else from trying.”

    While the GOP claims it’s the pro-business party, this assertion like so many other Republicans proclaim is simply not objectively true. And it’s not like the Democratic party is anti-business, in many cases their policies are far more conducive to business sector objectives or the business climate in general than Republicans. Particularly in the areas of tech and construction, both of which are key sectors which correlate to growth and where the tech sector is our biggest sector.

    It is true that the Republican party is the party of certain business sectors’ tactical or short-term objectives, sometimes at the expense of those sectors’ long-term strategic objectives.

    Donald Trump is a fucking piece-of-shit. There, REALLY, FIFY.

    Michael Heath:

    I agree with your analysis. I think, though, that is safe to say that the SKKKrotalMurKKKanPatriotiKKK Front is perfectly okay with such “Pro-business” sentiments as anti-unionism, anti-regulation, anti-taxation and anti-equality, regardless their actual effects on the business climate.

    Donald Trump is an American patriot…

    What exactly does one do to become an American patriot? I see no military career. I see no sacrifice for the country. I see only stupid, failed attempts to undermine the reputation of the President.

    Does American patriot mean “someone who agrees with me”?
