Trump Derangement Syndrome may not yet be a recognized psychological condition, but with a few more weeks like the alleged president’s first in office, don’t bet against it being added to the lexicon before long.
“I see all these protesters. I think if you actually surveyed them, they would probably get the facts wrong. They’re being misinformed.”
Conway got hit right in the face with some facts from George Stephanopoulos, who reminded her:
“None of the deadly terror attacks in this country since 9/11 have been carried out by anyone from those seven countries. Eighteen of the 19 9/11 attackers came from Egypt, Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates — there is no ban from that country. Those countries also happen to be countries where President Trump has significant business interests.”
The adviser to Trump then tried to use the old, tired GOP strategy of blaming President Obama:
“I mean, Donald Trump has been on the job for, what, eight, nine, ten days. Barack Obama was here for eight years. The extraordinary accomplishments in just the first week truly are breathtaking.
“No reductive curating reporting, in my view, is helpful to the American public to understand. We’re being very collaborative and very open. We would just like the same in return.”
You want the same in return, Kellyanne? Well you and your party obstructed President Obama every step of the way for eight years, so karma is now paying you and the Orange Menace a visit.
Ms. Conway reminds me of an old saying I’m sure you’ve heard: If you can’t dazzle them with brilliance, baffle them with bullshit.
