    Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R-IL) went on CNN on Tuesday to blast Donald Trump for the CPAC speech he gave this past weekend, claiming that he was "really bored" during it because it was like many of the others the former president had previously given.

    "I think that that was the first time we had heard Donald Trump speak," Kinzinger stated. "It would be shocking, you know, all that stuff ... but it was the same exact — I mean ... he could have given that speech in September, and with the exception of having talked about impeachment, it would have been the same speech he gave this time. He had no new ideas."

    "I mean, to me, it looked like somebody that just needed his monthly dose of adoration in front of a crowd. So, I really was bored," he added. "Honestly, I watched it because I knew he was going to call my name out, and I wanted to be able to know how to respond and what was said. But it was a hard speech to get through because I was just like, you know, looking at my phone a lot, as you can tell by the number of the tweets I had."

    Kinzinger was one of the Republicans who Trump attacked by name in his speech, with Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) and Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT) being mentioned as well. Kinzinger has been trying to fire back at Trump ever since, appearing on "Morning Joe" on Monday to respond as well.

    "I think, you know, what you could see at that speech yesterday was recycling old talking points. You know, just stream of consciousness and I think it's obvious there is no vision from Donald Trump there's no desire to paint a vision. All he really desires is to stand in front of a crowd and be adored and he got that in ample amounts yesterday," Kinzinger said, according to The Hill.

    "This president has done nothing but reflect people's darkness back to them, reflect their fears back to them," Kinzinger added. "It was sad, but I'm still hopeful that, you know, 45 percent of people at this Trump rally didn't want Donald Trump again, and I think there's a growing number of people out there that see he's a has-been."
