Donald Trump canceled his appearance Saturday at the Conservative Political Action Conference, saying he would instead campaign in Wichita, Kansas.
Or rather -- "Witchita, Kanasas."

His campaign quickly corrected the misspelling of Kansas but neglected to correct Wichita at that time.
Trump had been scheduled to speak Saturday at 8:30 a.m., but some conservative activists were planning a walkout to protest the Republican presidential frontrunner -- who they see as insufficiently sincere.
He had spoken at past CPAC events, but some activists accused organizers of promoting Trump's candidacy in exchange for donations he made to the event sponsor American Conservative Union.
Trump thanked ACU chairman Matt Schlapp and said he looked forward to speaking next year at the event as president of the United States -- but CPAC organizers don't seem thrilled by the prospect.
Very disappointed @realDonaldTrump has decided at the last minute to drop out of #CPAC -- his choice sends a clear message to conservatives.— CPAC 2021 (@CPAC 2021) 1457111079.0
