“What kind of genius loses $1 billion in a single year?”
That’s the question that Hillary Clinton asked of her Republican rival Donald Trump on Monday, and it’s also the question that Charlie Rose asked Trump campaign manager Kellyanne Conway on Tuesday’s edition of CBS This Morning.
Conway started off by noting that what Trump did was perfectly legal, while also slamming Hillary Clinton for supposedly having never created a job in her entire life.
Rose responded by asking her directly, “How did he lose the $1 billion?”
“Well, we don’t know that,” she replied, before trying to spin Trump’s loss and subsequent recovery as a massive success story.
“This nation could certainly use a comeback now,” she said.
Of course, one way that Trump could show us all how he lost $1 billion in a year — and how he came back from that loss — would be to release his past 25 years’ worth of tax returns. The fact that he’s completely unwilling to do so hints that the story might not be as inspiring as Conway would like us to believe.
