    Trump drops out of CPAC appearance

    Trump drops out of CPAC appearance

    Feeling the heat, or demonstrating that he doesn’t need conservatives?

    One has to wonder if the increasing conservative attacks are the reason why Donald Trump dropped out of his CPAC appearance at the last minute.

    At least the Twitter chatter I’ve seen the past day from people at the conference was pretty hostile. And let’s face it, Ted Cruz took him to the cleaners last night at the debate on conservative issues.

    Perhaps Trump didn’t want the optics of a large crowd (I’ve been in that ballroom, it’s Yuge) booing him. Or maybe he’s just proving that he’s bigger than the conservative movement, and doesn’t need it.

    (added) Politico reports:

    The Trump campaign released a statement to reporters announcing that it would be in “Witchita, Kanasas [sic] for a major rally on Saturday prior to Caucus.”

    “He will also be speaking at the Kansas Caucus and then departing for Orlando, Florida and a crowd of approximately 20,000 people or more,” the campaign said. “Because of this, he will not be able to speak at CPAC as he has done for many consecutive years.”

    “Mr. Trump would like to thank [American Conservative Union Chairman] Matt Schlapp and all of the executives at CPAC and looks forward to returning to next year, hopefully as President of the United States,” the statement continued.

    Last night was the breach of the Trump wall.

    He’s going down in flames of his own making.
