Every year, Donald Trump has consistently touted his amazing speeches at the Conservative Political Action Conference — a critically important conference for every conservative politician in America to attend.
CPAC, as it's known, had invited Trump this year just like they always do. Of course, this year's speech would have been his most important at the conference, too — what with him running for president and leading in the primaries and all.
Only a curious thing happened: CPAC gave him an 8:30 a.m. Saturday speech time — which is a really bad slot — after his disastrous debate performance on Thursday night, and The Donald quickly conjured up an excuse for why he couldn't be there!!
Fresh off the heels of Thursday night's awful debate, The Donald's campaign dropped a press release confirming the candidate had to be in "Witchita, Kanasas" (seriously, they misspelled both city and state) for an event on Saturday:
"The Donald J. Trump for President Campaign has just announced it will be in Witchita, Kanasas for a major rally on Saturday prior to Caucus. He will also be speaking at the Kansas Caucus and then departing for Orlando, Florida and a crowd of approximately 20,000 people of more. Because of this, he will not be able to speak at CPAC as he has done for many consecutive years. Mr. Trump would like to thank Matt Schlapp and all of the executives at CPAC and looks forward to returning to next year, hopefully as President of the United States."
The social media exec revealed that he's doing the good deed to ensure that his staff has an incentive to stay at the company, with a spokesperson telling Re/Code why Weiner decided to do this now:
"Jeff did not receive an equity package this year at his request. He asked the Compensation Committee to take the stock package he would have received and put it back in the pool for employees."
LinkedIn's stock has fallen HARD in the last month, so not only does Weiner want to do something nice for his employees, he probably wants to make sure they will stick around through what might be some tough times.
While we've heard news that HOV and his wife have finished their joint album that's supposedly a response to Lemonade, Jay decided to address the album first in a remix to Fat Joe's All The Way Up -- which of course exclusively dropped on TIDAL!
