Much prefer Joe's narrative but... in other news, looks like it's time for the conservatives to take back their party now that the elections over.

White Nationalist Richard Spencer Booted Out Of CPAC
yes I realize he was never actually "invited".

NATIONAL HARBOR, Md. ― White nationalist leader Richard Spencer was kicked out of the annual Conservative Political Action Conference on Thursday.

A spokesman for CPAC said that the unabashedly racist “alt-right” leader was removed because organizers viewed him as “repugnant,” according to NBC News.

Security personnel approached Spencer after he spoke to reporters for approximately an hour in the halls of the National ******* Resort, which hosts the gathering of conservative activists and elected officials every year.

Officials asked for his credentials, and then escorted him outside the building, where he held another mini-press conference.

Shortly before Spencer was escorted away, the American Conservative Union’s Dan Schneider denounced him and members of his movement. In a speech titled “The Alt Right Ain’t Right At All,” Schneider said Spencer and his colleagues were part of a “sinister organization” that is trying to “worm its way” into the conservative movement.

“They are racists. They are sexists. They hate the Constitution. They hate everything we believe in. They are not an extension of conservatism,” Schneider said.

Schneider then made a puzzling argument: The alt-right and its band of **** sympathizers were actually a product of the left.

“They are nothing but garden variety left-wing fascists,” he said.
More alt-facts I guess.

You see, the Political Spectrum is clearly Round and not Flat. If you lean far enough to the Left, you will find yourself on the extreme Right...

The alt-right is actually the alt-left. The folks showing up at town halls are all paid for. Mass media news is fake and only the current administration can tell the honest to god truth. Global warming is a hoax. There's no such thing as a conflict of interest for an elected official. It's still reasonable to talk and boast about the election and criticize the candidate you ran against and bring her up at every opportunity.

What a world!

Side note:

There's a 'Richard Spencer self-identifies as a conservative' joke in there somewhere...right?

Bill and Milo looked like they were having a love fest, or getting ready to have one.

Also i've discovered that illegals dont like being informed of what identity theft can do for their victim. They tend to focus more on what it does to them if they were to be deported.

To be fair, she was always pretty shorter.
