Kellyanne Conway lashes out at ‘haters’ who won’t let ‘Bowling Green Massacre’ story die

Published

on

Spurned by CNN, Pres. Donald Trump’s senior counselor Kellyanne Conway has turned to Fox News to air her grievances against the mainstream media and the “haters” who continue to mock her “Bowling Green Massacre” gaffe from earlier this week.

In a Saturday night preview of her Sunday appearance on Fox News’ Media Buzz with Howard Kurtz, Conway insisted that she misspoke by one word when she accused the media of covering up the “Bowling Green Massacre” for political reasons.

Many of her critics are just “haters,” Conway told Kurtz in an interview taped Saturday.

The Iraqis arrested in Bowling Green, Kentucky for attempting to smuggle weapons to Iraq were “masterminds,” she said. “I had said that before. I should have said plot or I should have just called them terrorists.”

“I clarified immediately,” she said, apparently referring to a now-deleted tweet from Friday. “I should have said terrorists and not massacre.”

“I’m sure it will live on for a week,” she complained.

Conway has been widely mocked for the remarks as well as her contention last week that lies press secretary Sean Spicer told from the White House briefing room about the size of Pres. Trump’s inaugural crowds were “alternative facts.”

On Tuesday, the Trump administration announced that it would no longer be sending spokespersons to speak to CNN on the air because the network “does not promote” Pres. Trump’s agenda.

The next day, however, the administration sent former Breitbart.com editor turned White House aide Sebastian Gorka to appear on Anderson Cooper 360.

By Saturday, Conway was asking to appear on CNN’s State of the Union, a request that the network denied.

Press critic and media watchdog Jay Rosen has suggested that news networks should stop allowing Conway to appear at all.

Given Conway’s habit of openly lying and muddying the waters without giving any actual illumination into her boss’ actual views, Rosen said, there is no journalistic value in having her appear.

“Just be real about it and say, ‘This isn’t actually of journalistic value,’” he said. “‘It has a different value and that’s why we’re putting it on the air.’ Just don’t pretend that this is a normal interview, with the normal rationale.”

Trump has figured out how to get taxpayers to renovate one of his golf courses: MSNBC panel

Published

President Donald Trump has figured out how to have taxpayers pay to renovate his Trump National Doral Miami golf course, according to an analysis by MSNBC's Stephanie Ruhle.

"Before setting himself on fire on Ukraine yesterday, Mick Mulvaney came into the White House briefing room to break to the nation the fact the that the Trump Doral golf resort turns out to be -- in his estimation, organically, just sitting there -- the best possible place to have a G-7 Summit of world leaders," MSNBC's Brian Williams reported. "That was provision number one. There’s no better place that we can find. Number two was, the president will not profit from said G-7."

Bill Maher reveals plan to ‘bribe’ Trump with one billion dollars — for him to leave office

Published

on

The Constitution has two mechanisms to remove President Donald Trump from office prior to his term ending on January 20, 2021: impeachment and the 25th Amendment.

HBO "Real Time" host Bill Maher noted that Trump could also choose to resign.

Maher waved around a $1 million check that he said he would give to Trump to quit.

He said he also knew 1,000 people who would do the same -- which would land Trump over $1 billion.

Maher said even poor people would pawn their wedding rings to add to the pot.

Trump can’t fire Mulvaney because nobody else wants to be his chief of staff: report

Published

on

White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney will likely stay on at the White House despite his public confession of a quid pro quo in the Ukraine scandal at the center of the impeachment inquiry, The New York Times reported Friday.

"But Mr. Mulvaney’s job has been anything but normal since the news conference on Thursday at which he seemingly undermined the Trump administration’s strategy for avoiding impeachment by acknowledging that Mr. Trump had sought a quid pro quo for providing Ukraine with American aid," the newspaper reported. "In the chaotic aftermath, the president’s Republican allies are questioning Mr. Mulvaney’s savvy and intelligence even as the Trump campaign is defiantly turning one of his lines from the news conference into a T-shirt."
