A protester dressed like President Donald Trump was escorted out of Vice President Mike Pence’s speech Thursday at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC).
Pence took the stage at CPAC 2020 around noon (eastern time) Thursday, opening his speech with a message of optimism about America’s odds of defeating the coronavirus, and Trump’s odds of reelection. However, less than 10 minutes into the vice president’s remarks, a protestor dressed like the president stood up near the front of the audience and began yelling about Trump and “white supremacy.”

Despite the disruption, many CPAC attendees seemed delighted by Pence’s speech, which triggered several chants of “four more years” and copious applause.
