Washington Examiner, February 26, 2018
Shortly before President Trump’s appearance at the Conservative Political Action Conference last Friday, his administration announced a new set of severe sanctions on North Korea.
When Trump got on the stage at CPAC, he talked about a wide range of issues, including his hair, CPAC’s perception of him as insufficiently conservative during the presidential election of 2016, his administration’s accomplishments (regulatory reform, tax cuts, and confirming Justice Neil Gorsuch for the Supreme Court), the recent massacre in Parkland, Fla., and the need to defend Americans from violent criminals and reform the immigration system.
But about an hour into the president’s speech, he still had not said anything about the sanctions on North Korea.
Then President Trump did “The Snake.”
Just like at a concert, the rock star was doing this by request. As the president recounted, “When I walked in today….I had five people outside say, ‘Could you do “The Snake”?'”
