If you were waiting for the most ridiculous excuse for President Trump’s tweets hinting at violence against the news media, it arrived in the form of good ol’ Kellyanne “Cryptkeeper” Conway Monday morning during an appearance on Fox & Friends, who predictably said that all of the fault lies with the media.
Asked about the tweet Trump sent out Sunday showing him on video body slamming CNN, Conway opined:
“The media have now moved on from Russia to cover themselves. The American people see that they’re trying to interfere with the president communicating directly through his very powerful social media network channels.”
Wasn’t the Trump administration whining about the media covering the Russia investigation? Now the topic changes and they’re still not happy.
Next, Conway whined:
“Notice that they don’t cover the substance of the issues. I know it’s a heck of a lot easier to cover 140 characters here or there or what the president may be saying about the media here or there than it is to learn the finer points of how Medicaid is funded in this country and how that would or would not change under the Senate bill.”
We’ve been over that already, Kellyanne. Under Trumpcare, Medicaid would be cut by nearly a TRILLION dollars just so Republicans can give a giant tax cut to their millionaire and billionaire political contributors.
Lastly, the Cryptkeeper ended her segment with this dash of complete bullshit about the ongoing investigation into the 2016 election:
“The Obama administration under oath have said they did not change a single vote and that there is no collusion. They are talking about themselves. This is why America doesn’t trust many of them.”
Instead, we should trust a pathological liar in the Oval Office and his adviser who once deemed outright lies to be “alternative facts?” Thanks, but I’d believe a talking giraffe before I believed anyone associated with Donald Trump.
