One stalwart Trump critic dared to take the stage at this year’s CPAC. “If we want an audience with young people, we have to separate ourselves from the men on our side who’ve behaved atrociously toward women,” said conservative writer Mona Charen—a think tank fellow, and TWS contributor—during a panel discussion of conservative women’s feminist crisis.
“I’m disappointed in the people on our side for being hypocrites about sexual harassers and abusers of women who are in our party who are sitting in the White House who brag about their extramarital affairs, who brag about mistreating women,” Charen challenged. “Because he happens to have an ‘R’ after his name, we look the other way.”
And then she called Marion Le Pen’s invitation to speak at CPAC a “disgrace.”
It’s been an interesting 24 hours at CPAC.
