The Daily Show highlighted the similarities between the controversial Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) and the rhetoric that incited Trump supporters to wage insurrection at the U.S. Capitol.
The video began with clips of Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) and Donald Trump vowing that Republicans would never retreat or surrender.
The video than moved to a split screen showing Rep. Madison Cawthorn (R-NC) asking for reinforcements, as one of the Capitol rioters did during the attack.
The video continued with clips of Donald Trump, Jr. and Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) speaking at CPAC as images of the insurrection flashed on the screen.
Sen. Josh Hawley (R-MO) was also featured with the notorious image of his raising his fist in solidarity with the Trump supporters seeking to overturn the election.
The video ended with a brutal mash-up of Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) and the so-called QAnon Shaman.
