NATIONAL HARBOR – “Pawn Stars” host Rick Harrison injected some humor into his CPAC speech on Thursday afternoon.

Harrison, the star of the History channel show and an outspoken conservative, delivered his speech on ‘the stupidity of socialism’ at one of the largest annual gatherings of conservatives just outside Washington, D.C.

“The majority [of] people in this room know that socialism is just stupid,” he said.

“It’s literally like heroin. The first shot is great. For a little bit it’s wonderful, but then the rest of your life is a living hell. And that’s literally what the socialists are doing.”

He continued later in the speech: “Once you give someone something it’s hard to take it away… then you get Venezuela.”

The rise of socialism has been a hot topic at CPAC, with two prominent GOP House Oversight Committee members warning of “radicals” in the Democratic Party and saying they believe congressional Democrats are laying the foundation for Trump impeachment efforts.
