Real Time host Bill Maher was aghast when he heard Kellyanne Conway’s reasoning on Friday for why she could never support Hillary Clinton.
Besides the fact that she is Donald Trump’s campaign manager, Conway said she “can’t support someone who lies for a living.”
“You just said you can’t support someone who ‘lies for a living,'” Maher replied. “When I read a list of provable lies.”
Earlier in the interview, Maher — drawing a line between “the scary and the false” in Trump’s campaign rhetoric — ran down some of Trump’s falsehoods.
“‘I don’t know anything about David Duke.’ Utter lie. ‘Vladimir Putin and I are best friends.’ He never met him,” said Maher. “He ‘got a letter from the NFL,’ which was proved never happened. He gave money to the veterans when he didn’t. ‘I was against the Iraq war,’ when it’s on tape that he was not.”
However, Conway did confirm to Maher that the GOP presidential nominee encouraged her to go on the show.
“Tell him not to sue me again,” Maher quipped.

Trump approves of North Korea missile tests: ‘I have no problem’ because they’re just ‘short-range missiles’
On Thursday, in conversation with reporters, President Donald Trump said that he had 'no problem' with North Korea's new round of missile tests.
"Short-range missiles, we never made an agreement on that," said Trump. "I have no problem, we'll see what happens, but these are short-range missiles. They're very standard."
The thought that short-range missiles would still be capable of hitting our allies in the region, like South Korea and Japan, does not seem to have occurred to him.

Russian Twitter propaganda predicted 2016 US election polls

Beto O’Rourke calls for a ‘war tax’ in release of health care plan for veterans
The Democratic presidential candidate uses his eighth policy announcement to focus on an area that he prioritized in Congress.
Democratic presidential candidate Beto O'Rourke on Monday morning released a plan to improve the lives of veterans, returning to an area of priority during his time in the U.S. House for his latest 2020 policy rollout.
In keeping with measures he supported in Congress, the plan calls for a "responsible end" to the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan — reinvesting $1 out of every $2 saved in veterans programs — and the creation of a Veterans Health Care Trust Fund for each future war. The fund would be paid for by a "war tax" on households without service members or veterans.
