CPAC 2022 Has A Special Exhibit: A Sobbing...

At the Conservative Political Action Conference this week in Dallas, attendees can gaze upon a bizarre exhibit in which an actor, pretending to be a Jan. 6 rioter, sobs in a jail cell.

Journalist Laura Jedeed documented the confounding MAGA booth Friday and described is as “the most astonishing thing” she’s ever seen.

“At this CPAC booth you receive a silent disco headset that plays harrowing testimony from the people arrested for participating in J6,” she tweeted. “Instead of dancing, you stand around and watch this guy cry.”

“What I need you to understand is that I stood here for about half an hour yesterday and this guy NEVER broke character,” Jedeed added, seeming genuinely impressed by the actor’s commitment to the role.

“He wept sitting on the bench. He wept sitting on the floor. He tallied days on a chalkboard set up for the purpose.”

Straka’s organization didn’t respond to an email seeking clarity on the exhibit’s meaning. Presumably, though, it wasn’t a genuine expression of remorse for participating in a violent attack on the U.S. Capitol and a tacit admission that actions have consequences.
