GOP strategist Mike Murphy criticized the Conservative Political Action Conference for being “a scam, pure and simple, top to bottom” in a fiery message during an MSNBC appearance on Friday.
Murphy, who has advised Republicans like the late Senator John McCain and Senator Mitt Romney, weighed in on the state of CPAC after airing a clip showing Donald Trump Jr. the crowd called at its annual conference this week to support Christian conservative cell phone service Patriot Mobile.
MSNBC anchor Alex Wagner noted that the company has leased excess capacity from other mobile carriers, including AT&Ta company that Trump Jr. at the conference for “weaponizing” consumers’ money.
On Friday, Murphy took his own prank on Trump Jr., along with the CPAC meeting he admitted he used to attend.
“First of all, I join fellow patriot Donald Jr. to urge our listeners, the true patriots out there, to check out “Christians Against Secular Humanism” or “CASH” today, because this is pure and simple quirk. said Murphy. “They should put a fence around CPAC and give them all a bunco attack, it’s unbelievable. I didn’t know God had an opinion on cell phone companies.”
Murphy continued by noting that former President Donald Trump and CPAC are both “shrinking” in popularity in the Republican Party, “but it’s sort of a professional, grassroots, hawker wing of the GOP. The good news is it’s an outlier, it is no longer the sample it used to be.”
Murphy added that today CPAC represents only a “splinter” of the GOP. “This thing is now a scam, pure and simple, top to bottom.”
