Trump just left the crowd at CPAC stunned with wildly unhinged, surreal speech

This morning, President Trump went to the hate rally slash grifter convention known as the Conservative Political Action Conference to give a speech to his adoring if rabid fans, and it was a doozy, even by his standards.


In rare form, the president opened up his speech with a string of lies about the 2016 election and crowed about his victory over Hillary Clinton, obsessed with the one achievement he’s ever really accomplished and content to simply ride it out forever.

Then he went off the script…and off the rails.

One of his biggest head-scratching moments came when he decided to mock the Green New Deal and the Democratic efforts to avoid the preventable and increasingly severe effects of climate change that will devastate human civilization as we know, imagining a future where you won’t be able to watch television because, uh, the wind isn’t blowing.

Pretty telling that not being able to watch television is his primary concern, and not, you know, the flooding of major metropolitan areas and the mass migrations of millions of people as the deserts grow and the oceans rise.

The president veered off into a diatribe in which he lashed out at his various political enemies, rivals, and boogeymen, jumping from mocking Jeff Sessions…

…to throwing a fit about reporter Dave Wiegel, who mistakenly tweeted out a false approximation of Trump’s crowd size over a year ago, and then continued to complain about his crowd sizes for several more minutes…

…before jumping to a bizarre anecdote about an unnamed “friend” of his in New York who is almost certainly in the mafia and “kills people for a living,” which will likely be of interest to the Special Prosecutor…

…before finally capping it off with a truly weird story about a general he met named, uh, “Raisin Cain,” and delved deeper into his insane theory that all of our generals are more handsome than Hollywood actors and should be in movies, or something:

And this is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to how weird this speech was.

Folks, these are the rantings of a sundowning old man whose brains are leaking out of his ears live on stage. In between all the many, many, many lies and the disgustingly racist yet obviously fictitious stories about immigrant violence is clear evidence that the President of the United States is losing it, and we need to do something about it before his irrational mind does something we can’t fix with an election.
