CNN's Chris Cuomo got into it with Matt Schlapp, the American Conservative Union Chairman, over former President Donald Trump speaking at CPAC. But the discussion turned into a big argument over Trump's claims and it was all sideways from there.

Cuomo and Schlapp got heated while discussing some of Trump's unproven claims and the results of the 2020 election and alleged voter fraud. They seemed to argue over this and Schlapp admitted that Joe Biden was president. Cuomo said Matt's side had their chance to prove it and Schlapp admitted that they completely failed to prove their case.

Cuomo pressed Schlapp on the decision to have Trump at CPAC, bringing up Trump's constant suggestion that he won the 2020 election. Schlapp defended the situation by mentioning Trump's policies that leaned towards the conservative side regardless.

Cuomo constantly suggested that Trump was pushing a fraudulent claim, and by having Trump speak at CPAC, that Schlapp was supporting the same claim. This interview just got wild and it was worth the watch.

WATCH Cuomo and Schlapp battle it out:



CNN's report on Trump speaking at CPAC stated the following, bringing former VP Mike Pence into the equation:

Former President Donald Trump will speak at the Conservative Political Action Conference in Orlando, Florida, next Sunday, according to a source familiar with the matter, while former Vice President Mike Pence declined an invitation to speak at the conference, two sources told CNN.

One source said organizers still hope to change Pence's mind about attending, while another source said Pence is planning to stay under the radar for the next six months. Politico first reported that Pence declined the invitation.

The divergence between the two former leaders, which comes as the GOP is grappling with its future in the wake of the Trump presidency, follows tensions between Trump and Pence surrounding the January 6 riot at the US Capitol and Pence's role certifying the results of the election for President Joe Biden.

"We accept Joe Biden is the duly elected president of the United States," former Pence chief of staff Marc Short told CNN's Pamela Brown on "Newsroom" Saturday evening, despite Pence playing a role in perpetuating baseless election fraud theories that Trump repeatedly pushed ahead of the attack on the Capitol.

I heard Mike Pence is doing a podcast. Wow, just like so many others who started one because they were on lockdown. Way to go, Mike! From VP to podcast. Alright!

To be fair, Pence does have a soothing radio voice.

He's basically the guy version of Delilah.

When it comes to CPAC, I haven't ever been to one. Are they fun? I saw one version of the tickets cost $7,500 and I started laughing. I thought, this would be like going to Twitter in person and probably seeing a bunch of people walking around with blue check marks on their heads. Yeah, it's a sponsorship ticket, but still, who the heck would pay that much to sit at a political conference? Do you get to hang out with Ivanka and throw hot dogs at Jared?
