Matt Schlapp: CPAC is Healing for Republicans Are Emotional Over Trump Being Silenced
We are now into day two of the CPAC conference. Those who expected it to be a total disaster have not been disappointed. The event has devolved into a total love fest for the 45th president of the United States.
And according to Matt Schlapp, the man who planned the event, that’s the way it should be. Schlapp recently told Sean Hannity that CPAC will be healing for those who are still stinging over Trump’s monumental loss.
The Conservative activist began, “We are mad at you (to Hannity), that you’re not here only because we love it when you are here. And — But I have to say that Fox is doing a great job of covering it. And I think this is an important moment, I think David would agree, conservatives and Republicans don’t really emote too much. We’re more like logical thinkers.”
Schlapp continued, “But there’s something very emotional about having your president get silenced, get shut down, have his Twitter account and everything else shut down. And then the — the way the election ended was just, it was really upsetting to these people and they really — it’s jarring to see this socialist policy just coming at them every day.”
The Chairman of the American Conservative Union closed, “The fact that the president is going to come and reconnect with the people who love him so much on this stage, I think it’s going to be a very, very important moment for actually healing amongst the conservative side of all of this. But I think for the country generally, no one’s voice should be silenced and definitely not a president of the United States.”
