Today’s the last day of Black History Month.
Donald Trump totally disfavors the very idea of Black History Month, ‘cause of his notorious racist past.
He also totally disfavors anybody who disagrees with him, especially Republican Members of Congress, such as Wyoming’s sole Member of the U S House of Representatives, Liz Cheney, who voted in favor of his Second Impeachment.
He holds a special grudge against Louisiana’s Republican Senator Bill Cassidy, who voted to convict him of high crimes and misdemeanors for inciting the January 6 Insurrection at the Capitol. Cassidy has gone out on a limb by saying that if Trump continues to dominate the GOP in the next two election cycles, the Republican Party will pretty much disappear (https://www.cnn.com/2021/02/28/politics/bill-cassidy-donald-trump-republican-party-future/index.html); we exaggerated just a little, poetic or rhetorical license, or something).
At the annual Conservative Political Action Conference, taking place this year in Orlando, a bizarre Trump supporter created a totally inane statue of his idol, complete with gold head. His statue is the Star Attraction in the commerical booths: see "At CPAC, a Golden Image, a Magic Wand and Reverence for Trump,” https://www.nytimes.com/2021/02/28/us/politics/cpac-trump-statue.html?referringSource=articleShare.
Today, his deplorables applauded his every word as he teased his seemingly hypnotized, or drugged, audience about whether he’ll try to swagger himself back into the White House on January 20, 2025, assuming he hasn’t by then collapsed from his conspicuous obesity and if he hasn’t been hospitalized for his serious mental illness.
Our Florida-based correspondent, associate solitary reporter Jim Mangam, was at the CPAC event 24/7, although he hated every minute of it. But as a devoted associate solitary reporter, and a summa cum laude graduate of the Apocryphal Press School of Journalism, he duly interviewed all the attendees (except for Ted Cruz, whom nobody in their right mind likes). To a person, he found the crowd to be delusional for believing in their idol’s totally baseless claims that the election was stolen from him and them. And ninety-five percent of those he interviewed fully supported the Capitol Insurrection of January 6, incited by their madman.
And in Colorado, according to an article in today’s Denver Post by Justin Wingertner, the Republican Party is in total disarray, with five candidates for Party Chair warring against each other; four of them obediently follow the Trump Doctrine that the presidential election in 2020 was stolen from him. Only one of them says that Joe Biden legitimately won the election.
No surprise to us here at AP, but into the breach leapt associate solitary reporter Eddie Cook, a megachurch evangelical pastor who has valiantly chaired the Republican Party of Denver (which has only five adherents) for the last four years
Cook is now in the running to run the state Republican Party. All signs point to his elevation to that thankless job in late March.
