The American Priority Conference, to be held the second weekend of October at Trump’s Doral golf resort in Miami, has me giddy with excitement. It’s like a giant crackpot-fest with everyone from Sarah Huckabee Sanders and Dinesh D’Souza to — no kidding — Josh Feuerstein and David (Avacado) Wolfe. D’Souza’s already flagging credibility may get the final nail in the coffin from appearing with some of these yahoos.
The list includes former White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, Florida congressman and Trump favorite Matt Gaetz (R-FL), and Turning Point USA chief and frequent White House visitor Charlie Kirk.
Sanders and the other bigwigs will be joined by the usual crew of more marginal right-wing characters, including Trump pardon recipient Dinesh D’Souza, Pizzagate promoter Jack Posobiec, and “media personality” Joshua Feuerstein, whose claim to fame is that he starred in a viral rant four years ago about Starbucks offering generic red holiday cups instead of Christmas-themed ones…QAnon booster Tracy Beanz is on the agenda, a year after she organized hundred QAnon believers to march around downtown D.C. chanting: “Where we go one, we go all.” Proposed conference topics include curiously phrased items like “Voter Fraud, What’s the deal?” and “Artificial Intelligence, why I should be concerned about it?”
I love the fact that they bill Feuerstein as a “media personality.” That’s a polite way to put “random wingnut preacher who thinks Starbucks cups are a plot to destroy Christianity and makes inane videos with his cell phone from his car.” And David (Avacado) Wolfe is going to lead the participants in three days of yoga, presumably while explaining to them that the Earth is flat, the salt in the ocean prevents the water from floating away from the planet, chocolate is an “octave of the sun’s energy,” that deer antlers are a “cosmic substance” that is “levitational in nature,” that mushrooms came from “distant planets,” and that gravity is a “toxin.” How much money would you pay to watch Sarah Huckabee Sanders and Dinesh D’Souza do yoga? Standing room only, I’m telling you.
