This Is Trump Country

Robert Stacy McCain, The American Spectator

Where is the “crisis” within the conservative movement that the media assured us was an inevitable consequence of Trump’s presidency? Nowhere in sight at CPAC, and I didn’t see anyone at the Gaylord identified with the notorious “alt-right,” either. It seemed to be the same conservative movement I’ve been covering at these conferences for more than a decade. The only difference from previous gatherings is that this year they’re getting ready to reelect a president. Sixteen years have elapsed since conservatives last had that chance, and with the Democrats deeply divided by Sanders’ candidacy, prospects for victory in November promise to make this year’s CPAC a fun-filled, upbeat event.
