Kellyanne Conway offers excuses as polls close: Blame ‘former presidents not voting for us’

Published

A very subdued Kellyanne Conway tried to sound upbeat as polls closed on Tuesday, but she lamented that Donald Trump could lose because he did “not have the full support of the Republican infrastructure.”

Conway told MSNBC’s Chuck Todd that she was holding on to hope that Trump could win in Florida and North Carolina.

“The things that would worry, I guess, is just that we didn’t have the full support of the Republican infrastructure,” she said. “It would really be too bad if we win narrowly and it’s not because of the Democrats, but it’s because we had former presidents not voting for us, we have former nominees not voting for us.”

“And that’s got to hurt,” Conway added. “And when you talk about growing the party, the idea was growing it but having that base together. And I think it’s very unfortunate.”

Reflecting on her boss, Conway said that “the guy’s a winner.”

“He’s been an incredibly self-made success story, real American success story,” the campaign manager noted. “He always come out on top. This is somebody who is nimble, who is resilient.”

“Win or lose, congratulations,” Todd said, concluding the interview. “Don’t forget to enjoy the moment, no matter what it is.”

Beto O’Rourke calls for a ‘war tax’ in release of health care plan for veterans

Published

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.

Conservative Ben Shapiro tweeted something many found offensive — so now he’s calling his critics ‘garbage’

Published

on

Right wing "thought leader" Ben Shapiro appeared today to say not using the "N" word is nearly impossible as he defended conservative, pro-gun teen Kyle Kashuv, one of the Parkland survivors who just had his acceptance to Harvard rescinded over his racist remarks, which included repeated use of the "N" word.

To be clear, Shapiro denies that's what he meant.

Here is Shapiro on Twitter, in what many took as him appearing to call not using the "N" word – in Kashuv's case, repeatedly, over and over and over again, "an insane, cruel standard no one can possibly meet."
