Do These Pics Taken From the Western Conservative Summit Spell Doom for The Trump Train?

The Western Conservative Summit, which is reportedly the largest gathering of conservatives outside of Washington, D.C., took place Friday in Denver, and was supposed to be a launching pad for potential GOP nominee Donald Trump to elevate momentum with the 2016 Republican National Convention just 17 days away.

Instead, like his numerous crashing poll numbers (with the exception one — Rasmussen), which have been brutal, pictures of the auditorium where the bloviating billionaire and reality TV actor spoke on Friday, show an audience that is a far cry from the crowds Trump formerly attracted.

In fact, some of these pictures look downright SAD!

Maybe I’m making too much of this largely anecdotal evidence, but the sparse (being generous) attendance of Trump’s speech does make sense from at least one standpoint.

This was a “conservative” conference and Donald Trump, a lifelong New York liberal elitist, is no conservative, so it makes sense that no principled conservative would want to hear Trump’s latest incoherent word salad.
