Trump Hugs And Air Kisses American Flag As He Takes The Stage For His CPAC Speech

Yeah, that's the flag he wanted to destroy on Jan. 6.

Former President Donald Trump arrived at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) approximately 55 minutes late. As he walked onto the stage, he molested hugged, and air-kissed the American flag — just before he launched an attack on Democrats and President Joe Biden. And, of course, in true Trump-form, he praised what he perceives to be as his accomplishments, such as the wall along the Southern border that was not actually completed — and Mexico never paid for it.

Hey, but at least Trump referred to the “Biden administration” during his CPAC speech, so that’s something. Trump still hasn’t officially conceded the presidential election that was held in November, even though he spectacularly lost to Biden in both the popular and electoral vote.

Here is Trump hugging the flag:

The results of the CPAC straw poll aren’t good for Trump if he wants to run in 2024, and that’s something he hinted at during his speech when he said, “Who knows, who knows, I may even decide to beat them for a third time” even though he did not beat Biden a third time. What a mental case.

70 percent of people said they wanted to see Trump run again in the CPAC straw poll, but only 55 percent said they would vote for him. Trump fared better at the previous CPAC gathering. Perhaps deadly insurrections aren’t very popular, but hey, he hugged the flag, you guys.

For quite a while, former President Barak Obama restrained himself from criticizing Trump when he took office. Obama wanted what’s best for this country and hoped that his successor would do a good job. Trump isn’t as graceful as Obama, though.
