The 50 most ridiculous lines from Donald Trump's CPAC speech


Analysis by Chris Cillizza, CNN Editor-at-large
Updated 11:04 AM ET, Mon March 1, 2021
CNN)Donald Trump delivered his first major post-presidential speech on Sunday, an address to the Conservative Political Action Conference laden with falsehoods and attacks on his fellow Republicans -- suggesting absolutely nothing has changed since he ceased being president on January 20.

I went through the speech and pulled out the lines you need to see. They're below.

1. "Do you miss me yet? Do you miss me?"
At root, Trump wants to be loved. Forever. And away we go!

2."I stand before you today to declare that the incredible journey we've begun together, we went through a journey like nobody else. There's never been a journey like it."
Never been a journey that incredible? Um, these two dogs and a cat would disagree.

3. "We've been doing a lot of winning."
During Trump's four years, Republicans lost the House majority, the Senate majority and the White House....

I couldn't get through the whole article in one sitting, it took two. 50 straight lies and lines from him was never anything I could tolerate for any length of time. But it's interesting to a point, to hear what he's currently spouting.

Yes, lines, lies, and whines are what comes out of his mouth.

The 2nd quote isn't even a complete sentence.

Lots of room to critique his words, I enjoyed the authors comments, and often had some of my own.
