CPAC Panelist Calls Out Trump, Roy Moore; Gets Booed for Slamming CPAC’s Le Pen Invite

During CPAC’s #UsToo panel this afternoon, panelist Mona Charen called out the GOP over the sexual misconduct allegations against President Trump.

The panel discussed sex, feminism, and #MeToo, among other issues, but at one point Charen said this when asked what gets her riled up:

“I’m disappointed in people on our side for being hypocrites about sexual harassers and abusers of women who are in our party, who are sitting in the White House, who brag about their extramarital affairs, who brag about mistreating women, and because he happens to have an R after his name, we look the other way, we don’t complain. This is a party that was ready to endorse… Roy Moore for the Senate in the state of Alabama, even though he was a credibly accused child molester. You cannot claim that you stand for women…”

At this point there were some people speaking up who said, “Not true.”

Minutes later, Charen took a moment to call out CPAC for inviting Marion Le Pen to speak.

“The Le Pen name,” she said, “is a disgrace. Her grandfather is a racist and a Nazi. She claims that she stands for him, and the fact that CPAC invited her is a disgrace.”

Her remarks were greeted with boots by people in the room:

Per Politico reporter Tim Alberta, guards escorted her out afterwards:
