“We’re so disgusted with Republicans that we honestly don’t care who wins if Trump doesn’t run,” said Sany Dash as she worked on her Trump merchandise stand.
Ms. Dash’s shop, Bye Bye Democrats, was busy on Saturday when CPAC attendees searched jeweled MAGA clutches, plush elephants, and a tapestry with a picture of Mr. Trump drinking coffee and reading, “The best part is waking up Donald Trump is president. “(” We probably sold 1,400 Nancy Pelosi toilet paper rolls here, “she said.” Our toilet paper is always a hit. “)
But Ms. Dash, an Indian from New York who described herself as a Trump supporter of “Day 1”, was currently more angry with the Republicans and especially with the representative Liz Cheney from Wyoming, who has urged her party to join the the former breaking president. Ms. Dash said she is preparing to open a store in Wyoming in the next two months and call it Bye Bye Liz.
“Liz Cheney is a descendant of a warmonger,” she said. “Sorry, we went to war with Iraq and so many people have died – millions of lives have changed.”
She continued, “I don’t care what she has to say now. It’s like the Bush girls in Austin. I don’t care how you woke up in Austin just because you’re getting along with Michelle Obama, but your father killed a lot of people. So sorry, I don’t want to have anything to do with you people. “
Like all dozen of CPAC attendees surveyed, Ms. Dash hoped that Mr. Trump would run for president in 2024. There are several other Republicans she likes, including South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem – “I like Kristi Noem because she is fighting,” she said, calling her a “female trump card” – but she said she would be in the GOP Only stay if Mr. Trump, or someone committed to leading like him, was the candidate.
“I mean, I’ve heard the rest of them – if they actually get through, that’s wonderful,” she said. “If they don’t, I’ll get out of this party like everyone else. It’s that simple.”
