CPAC got weird, and not for the reasons you’d think. Yes there was the requisite guru-ification of Trump and the sorely outdated chants of “lock her up,” but that was all to be expected.
It was conservative writer and a senior fellow at the Ethics and Public Policy Center Mona Charen who defied expectation and actually took a surprisingly reasonable – and therefor unpopular – position on a panel called #UsToo: Left out by the Left.
When asked what gets her “riled up” about modern feminism, Charen surprised (and then pissed off) the crowd with this hot take.
The conservative writer dared to criticize the president and quickly paid the price.
