Senior White House counselor Kellyanne Conway lies so much that apparently even some of the hosts at Fox News are sick of it and are now choosing to call her out when she attempts to spread her “alternative facts.”
During an appearance on Fox News Sunday, Chris Wallace got tired of Conway’s mindless chatter and constant attempts to deflect every question he asked, leading Wallace to tell her at one point:
“Kellyanne, you’ve got to allow me to ask some questions. This week the president continued to attack his attorney general… Does the president want Jeff Sessions to continue as attorney general or — as has been suggested — is he considering him moving over to replace General Kelly as the secretary of homeland security?”
“That’s a personnel question that only the president can answer. These MS-13 gangs are murdering innocent Americans and bringing drugs and violence into our communities.”
Clearly annoyed, Wallace told his guest:
“I understand that. The question is, is he considering moving [Sessions to homeland security] if the immigration part of this is so important?”
Again, Conway prevaricated:
“I won’t comment on that but I will tell you that the president has expressed frustration about [Sessions recusing himself from the Russia investigation]. And look at what’s happened with this ridiculous Russian collusion delusion. You see all these journalists, who built entire TV sets and lower-thirds and screaming graphics and breathless coverage, now slinking away this week, Chris, from the Russian collusion coverage. Why? Because you have everyone, from Jared Kushner meeting with the House and the Senate and giving his public statement.
“You have no ‘there’ there whatsoever. We were promised the next Watergate, we don’t even have water polo. We don’t have watermelon. It’s so ridiculous and the only thing I can see happening with Russia right now is this FusionGPS matter [allegedly connected to Hillary Clinton], the Senate witness who said everybody should go look over there at what’s happened. Somebody being paid by the Russians to compile a damaging dossier on Donald Trump. Again, filled with falsities and lies.”
That’s when Wallace realized the futility of trying to get a straight answer out of the White House aide:
“Okay. Let’s not waste anymore time. Let’s talk about Obamacare… Is that the president’s plan, stay on repeal and replace, change the Senate rules, end the legislative filibuster so that you can pass a fuller repeal and replace, including selling insurance across state lines?”
And once again, Conway didn’t actually answer the question:
“The president will not accept those who said it’s time to move on. We’ve met with the Obamacare victims at the White House several times now. They are real people.”
Know who else is real, Kellyanne? Robert Mueller. And his investigation continues.
