The Huffington Post reports:
Chris Cuomo invited Matt Schlapp, the chair of the American Conservative Union, onto his CNN show Monday to explain why ex-President Donald Trump has been invited to address the organization’s Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) this week. But the interview soon went off-the-rails as Cuomo was forced to debunk Schlapp’s repeated lies about “widespread voter fraud,” part of the falsehood pushed by Trump himself about the 2020 election being stolen from him.

In a Newsmax interview today, CPAC’s Matt Schlapp said of his event: “Our theme is ‘America Uncanceled.’ And what a perfect way to demonstrate the grossness of our cancel culture than having Donald Trump speak.” A few hours later, CPAC cancelled scheduled speaker Young Pharaoh. pic.twitter.com/fLkud2D1D4
