Right Wing Conference Party's Cocktail Menu Tried to 'Own the Libs' With Its Drink Names, and It Backfired Spectacularly

The American Conservative Union's Conservative Political Action Conference [CPAC] is a convention of Conservative activists and politicians known for being one of the biggest events of the year for the far-Right.

This year's CPAC is on its third day and its speakers have already generated some wildly false claims, from former White House aide Sebastian Gorka threatening that Democrats are hell-bent on banning hamburgers to Donald Trump Jr. fanning fears of nonexistent "Post Term Abortions."


Democrats are enemy number one at CPAC, and the cocktail menu at one of its parties tried to reflect that. Instead, it only opened itself up for ridicule.

The menu reads:

Russian Collusion - Vodka Soda

AOC - Juice box

The Wall - Whisky Neat

Sarah Sanders - Bourbon on the Rocks

Mexico will pay for it - Tequila Sunrise

T-RUM-p Derangement Syndrome - Rum & Coke

KAVANAUGH "I like beer" - A Beer

CRYN' [sic] Chuck Schumer - Wine

The item that got the most attention was the "Mexico will pay for it." You'll recall then-candidate Donald Trump's oft-repeated campaign promise that Mexico would pay for a wall at the southern border. In his attempts to secure American taxpayer funding for the wall, Trump initiated the longest government shutdown in United States history and just recently declared a national emergency at the border—a move whose constitutionality is in question.

Apparently the person behind this menu didn't know or didn't care that Trump gave up on Mexico directly paying for the wall years ago.

People were sure to remind attendees of the conference just how inept Trump has proven to be with his wall promise.

That wasn't all they noticed.

Many pointed out that a lot of the "cocktails" aren't actually cocktails, and that if you walked up to a bartender and asked for "wine" or "a beer," they'd probably ask you to be more specific.

However, we have a feeling the "mixologists" behind these are giving themselves a collective pat on the back.

Like Brett Kavanaugh's beer, the jokes were just flat.

President Donald Trump's administration has tried for over a year to wield the United States census to bolster its anti-immigrant platform, rather than getting an accurate count of the country's populace to better allocate its resources.

The administration has long sought to add a citizenship question, despite warnings that it could result in underreporting of the population and the targeting of immigrants.

According to reporting from The Tampa Bay Times, Republican party is once again using the census to bolster its interests.

The New York Times reported on Thursday that Donald Trump was enraged at the news that Russia was working to elect him once again in 2020.

But Russia once again seeking to interfere in our elections wasn't what enraged him. It's that officials sounded the alarm about it.

President Donald Trump replaced former Acting Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats with longtime Trump ally and ambassador to Germany Richard Grenell. The move came after Trump rebuffed Coats for announcing Russia's ongoing attempts to interfere in the 2020 election.

Grenell was deemed vastly unqualified for the position, to the point that officials had to assure Americans that the new Director of National Intelligence would be announced soon.

Trump said he was considering his longtime ally in Congress, Representative Doug Collins (R-GA), for the position...but there's just one problem.

President Donald Trump has made no effort to keep his thoughts on the trial of his former advisor, Roger Stone, a secret.

Stone was convicted of lying to Congress, obstructing justice, and threatening a witness last year. When prosecutors recommended a seven to nine year prison sentence, Trump fumed on Twitter and the Justice Department subsequently overrode the opinion of its prosecutors, who resigned in response.

Today, Stone was sentenced to 40 months in prison for his crimes, leading everyone to ask: Will Trump pardon one of his most vocal allies?
