Laura Jedeed, a journalist, took a video of the strange exhibit and posted it to Twitter saying "At this CPAC booth you receive a silent disco headset that plays harrowing testimony from people arrested for participating in J6. Instead of dancing, you stand around and watch this guy cry".
In the video, a group of people wearing headphones watch a man in an orange jumpsuit and a MAGA hat sit behind a makeshift jail cell.
The man shakes his head in his hands, cries, and walks around seemingly reflecting on his life.
On the wall of the jail cell is a chalkboard that reads "Where is everyone" and some tally marks indicating the man has been in jail for some time.
"I stood here for about half an hour yesterday and this guy NEVER broke character. He wept sitting on the bench. He wept sitting on the floor He tallied days on a chalkboard set up for the [purpose]," Jedeed wrote.

\u201cThe Republican Party has so thoroughly rejected American democracy that it\u2019s creating performance art about the \u201cunfair imprisonment\u201d of rioters who broke into the US Capitol with the goals of overturning the election and killing elected officials.\u201d
