Republicans really have become the party of victimization, even when they've committed the most heinous crimes. Like, for example, attempting to overthrow an election because their loser orange pissdaddy lost to Joe Biden in the popular and electoral vote.

I've always watched the Conservative Political Action Conference because there is so much weirdness on display. They didn't disappoint with a booth featuring a performative portrayal of a jailed U.S. Capitol rioter. And he can be heard crying MAGA tears. Lots of delicious MAGA tears. OK, I know I got off track there. I'll be good now.

The unidentified man is wearing an orange inmate jumpsuit with a MAGA hat on top of his head while sitting in a fake jail cell, weeping with his head down. Attendees receive a silent disco headset that plays testimony from people arrested for participating in the insurrection.

Freelance journalist Laura Jedeed said that for the 30 minutes that she was there, he never broke character.

Oh, and this happened, too.

The party of law and order doesn't think laws and orderliness pertain to them. Cry more, please.

Update: It appears that the fake jailed Jan. 6 insurrectionist is Brandon Straka, who has reportedly snitched on other Jan. 6 defendants.
