Former FBI attorney Lisa Page is spitting mad after a dramatized reading of text messages between her and former FBI agent Peter Strzok was performed at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) near Washington.
Page and Strzok famously sent anti-Trump, pro-Clinton text messages to each other while they were spearheading separate investigations into each 2016 presidential candidate. The two were also having an affair at the time – which has resulted in President Trump frequently mocking their tryst at rallies with full-on theatrics.
Here are highlights of stars Dean Cain and Kristy Swanson performing it in September (longer version here).
And after a Washington Post Op-Ed revealed that President Trump met with the cast and crew of “FBI Lovebirds: Undercover” the day before CPAC, Page raged on Twitter – quoting the Post: “More than three years later, long after his election victory, Donald Trump is still obsessed with two officials who did their jobs while personally not liking him. They are still the stars of Trump rallies, where the president performs their exchanges, grotesquely.”

Efforts to mock the pair arguably reached a new level at CPAC. The skit where the texts were dramatized was performed by actors Dean Cain, who once portrayed Superman on television, and Kristy Swanson, star of the 1992 film, “Buffy the Vampire Slayer.” The effort was written and produced by Phelim McAleer and Ann McElhinney.
“We met the president of the United States today in the Oval Office for 40 minutes,” McElhinney told the conference during a Q&A session after a performance. “He loves the play.”
“He said he wants to play a part,” added Swanson. –Bloomberg
Page raged on MSNBC last December, saying that Trump had performed a “vile, sort of simulated sex act” about her and Strzok.
