The White House is spun with lies like angel hair on a Christmas tree. The more people get it on their hands, the more treacherous the result becomes. After all, the angel hair consists of spun glass, and the fabrications are just as deadly. Counselor to the President, Kellyanne Conway spins with the best of them, but also manages to twist reality into something quite mind-numbing.
In an early morning blast, Counselor to the president, Kellyanne Conway criticized CNN chief White House correspondent, Jim Acosta. Conway said the aide who tried to grab Acosta’s microphone was “just doing her job,” but called it “very unfortunate:”
‘She was just doing her job, which was to reclaim the microphone that belongs to the federal government, and hand it to the next reporter. Obviously, I don’t think anybody should have — any young woman, particularly — should have swiping away at them, grabbing the microphone back. That’s very unfortunate. I have talked to that young woman, she is very brave and just doing her job.’
Yet, the White House adviser lied, saying that Trump’s administration was historically among the “most accessible and transparent.” Fox anchor, Bill Hemmer questioned whether the president removing Acosta’s pass was the best choice. She continued:
‘Look, there are journalists here at the White House who every single day try to do their job by getting the story, others try to get the president. They shall remain nameless right now, and I think that some people like to grandstand and be part of the story. There is no question about that. We hear that from other journalists. Maybe they will not come forward and say that, but they say that. They think that some people, not to name names, but make everybody look a little less authoritative and less biased.’
For some reason, Conway felt that Trump had no alternative but to attack the press:
‘He has to defend his agenda, members of his administration, members of his family. You want to talk about the red-hot tone, what about the woman who lost in 2016 and can’t seem to get over it, saying we can’t be civil to members of the opposite party. What about Maxine Waters? She said, you see members of the Cabinet, get up in their faces. Now she is set to be the chairman of an important committee. Jerry Nadler just said yesterday, on a train ride down from New York to Washington, was caught by a reporter saying that he’s going to work to impeach President Trump and Justice Kavanaugh. You want to talk about red-hot tone and substance, there it is.’
Conway ended, calling her and others’ jobs “dangerous” and the incident with the mike not “the president’s fault.”
‘It’s dangerous. I’ve been physically touched I have been yelled at, my kids have been threatened. Tucker Carlson, your colleague, he had a mob show up at his house last night, his wife was hiding in a pantry. Let’s talk about red-hot rhetoric. I will stand here all day long in my heels and talk about it, but I will not let it be made to be the president’s fault.’
