Conservative commentator Michelle Malkin just brought down the house at the annual Conservative Political Action Conference, unloading in a fiery speech that ended with a rousing standing ovation.
After introducing herself as a “proud, un-hyphenated, unapologetic, fully assimilated American,” the conservative firebrand and author went on to target the topic of illegal immigration, roasting Republicans and “the ghost of John McCain” for not combating the problems that have plagued the nation.
After noting some newsworthy moments worth celebrating, including that the “reckless, feckless liberal news media has finally, finally self-immolated,” she went on to speak about what she said what “the most important issue” facing America: immigration.
“I have been accused of being a ‘grifter,’ but it’s the GOP sellouts, not just the radical open borders left, that’s in bed with immigration saboteurs” she said Friday, while citing visa overstay problems and other issues in which she said “both parties are to blame.”
“Like the ones who hijacked the tea party movement to shill for amnesty. Those are the real grifters. Cashing in and practicing deceit at the expense of their base and at the expense of our country,”
“E-verify has been stalled. Sanctuary cities have metastasized, and both parties are to blame,” she continued.
“And yes, I’m looking at you, retired Paul Ryan. And yes, I’m looking at you, Mitch McConnell! And yes, I’m looking at you, Bush family!” she exclaimed.
“And yes, I’m looking at you, the ghost of John McCain!” she added after a pause, and as she pointed upward.
Her explosive nearly-20-minute speech was met with a standing ovation and an avalanche of social media reaction, with the left, not surprisingly, having a meltdown over her remarks while others couldn’t praise her boldness enough.
