‘Can’t Have a Circus Without a Ringleader’: Reactions to CPAC’s Trump Announcement Pour in


This morning, the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) made a historic announcement: sitting President Donald Trump will speak at their event, hot off his recent engagement speaking to a Floridian rally crowd.

The big news has been met with some predictable reactions.

Much of the criticism of the announcement has to do with the other big-name speaker who’s been dominating the headlines, Milo Yiannopoulos. Just last night, recordings of him seemingly defending pedophilia as “coming-of-age” relationships in “the homosexual world” spread like wildfire. Coupled with Trump’s own scandalous recordings on the subject of sexual assault, the video has some thinking that conservatism has taken an irreversible turn for the worst.
