Here Are the Best Moments From Ted Cruz at CPAC 2018
CPAC is a treasure trove of great speakers. Earlier today we were graced with a speech from Dana Loesch (see Dana Loesch at CPAC 2018 Scorches Media for Loving School Shootings).

Between the talk of meaningful safety measures and the future of conservatism, Ted managed to smack around Chris Cuomo's heavily powdered face. We can all learn a lesson from Cruz here: always make time for the important things in life. Mainly mocking media milquetoasts.
