The Morning Briefing: Finally—Trump Is Hitting the Right Notes Again


Top O’ the Briefing

Happy Monday, dear Kruiser Morning Briefing friends. Oswald’s frequent dreams of flying always ended with sensible finger sandwiches and a thermos full of Jack Daniels.

According to reports from people I’ve met and like, CPAC happened last week. I wasn’t in attendance, but then I rarely am. What I’ve done since the Tea Party days is create the illusion that I go to the conference every year. In reality, I’ve been five times in thirteen years.

My presence lingers.

Donald Trump was, of course, the hit of the show. Much has been made of the fact that Ron DeSantis didn’t show up but — as Stacey wrote — CPAC ain’t what it used to be. I don’t think it’s a big deal that the looming battle between the two didn’t begin right away. We’ve got plenty of time for that.

From what I’ve read of Trump’s speech, it was good that he didn’t have the DeSantis distraction.

Rick wrote about it for us, and I really did like a lot of what Trump said. For example:

“I am your warrior, I am your justice, and for those who have been wronged and betrayed, I am your retribution,” Trump said. “I will totally obliterate the deep state.”

That’s not just what the base needs to hear, that’s what the country needs. I wonder if he’s gotten a new speechwriter in the last month, because that kind of stuff is gold.

I’m even willing to get a little amnesia about Trump’s less-than-stellar efforts to drain the swamp and “obliterate the deep state” during his first term. He left a lot of people in positions of power that they then actively used to work against him in 2020. Frequent readers of mine know how often I’ve lamented the fact that he didn’t gut the FBI.

Last month I wrote that I wanted the Trump I like to come back. Reading excerpts from this speech almost made me wish that I’d gone to CPAC.


Over at Townhall, Schlichter’s latest column says that Trump has been on a roll the last couple of weeks, which is true. It all began with his trip to East Palestine, OH, which Kurt referred to as “the best day of Donald Trump’s ex-presidency.” He connected with people who desperately wanted to know that someone cared about their predicament, and he shamed this clown car administration into finally at least going through the motions.

More importantly, Kurt writes that Trump avoided talking about DeSantis in his speech. That’s a relief. His unprovoked attacks on the Florida governor in recent months have made him look frightened and weak.

Trump needs to be spitting fire, not tossing out pathetic playground digs.

This was a nice start.
