Organizers of the Conservative Political Action Conference were met with boos on Friday morning as they encouraged the crowd inside a Florida hotel ballroom to put on face masks in compliance with the host venue’s policies.

The awkward moment unfolded early on the first day of programming at the American Conservative Union’s annual confab and represented a confusing shift in rhetoric from prior speakers who uniformly mocked coronavirus-related restrictions in a series of sharply partisan remarks.

CPAC at one time had some minor claim to reason. Now it’s just a clown show.
