Rick Wilson: CPAC this Year Has ‘Largely Been Given over to Donald Trump’s Personality Cult’

‘The Trump Personality Cult has taken over where a forum for the conservatives for over 30 years had used to sort of get together, compare ideas, bump up against one another and talk about where the movement was going’

EXCERPT:

WILSON: "And frankly, no Republican senators, except for Ted Cruz, who was there for the swimsuit part of the competition to be the next Supreme Court nominee, showed up at CPAC this week. So, it is certainly something that I think, as Kellyanne Conway joked, it has become TPAC, you know, the Trump Personality Cult has taken over where a forum for the conservatives for over 30 years had used to sort of get together, compare ideas, bump up against one another and talk about where the movement was going. It is now, you know, largely been given over to Donald Trump’s personality cult. I will say, Lawrence, that your observation about Mike Pence’s speech today was absolutely on target, because, you know, look, if Donald Trump was eaten by wolverines tomorrow, every Republican in the country would go, 'Okay, cool,' except for the parts of his cult. Those folks there today ate that up with a spoon."
