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

Kellyanne Conway in Hannity -- (Fox News screen grab)

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.”

2020 Election

‘Black Voices for Trump’ spokesperson wants to nullify 100,000 Black votes he says were ‘tampered with’

Published

on

Paris Dennard, a spokesperson for Black Voices for Trump, on Tuesday suggested that someone "tampered with" the votes of Black Americans in a scheme to steal the election from President Donald Trump.

During an interview on Newsmax, Dennard said that he believes that Trump will overturn the results of the election despite a determination by the General Services Administration (GSA) that Joe Biden is the president elect.

"There's no doubt that if we are able to prove our case in court looking at the states -- Arizona, looking at Georgia, looking at places like Michigan and Pennsylvania -- where we believe that there are irregularities," Dennard opined. "If we can show fraud going forward and toss out illegally cast ballots, ballots that should not have been counted, people that are dead or are not on the roles or if there's anything -- evidence that can be provided about [Dominion Election Systems] and any discrepancies there, it can overturn the certifications in these states and, thus, giving President Trump the win through the legal votes that were cast."

Trump’s ‘dysfunctional’ legal team has made ‘every kind of error’ possible trying to ‘overturn’ election: Legal experts

Published

on

Legal experts are stunned at how badly President Donald Trump's legal team has handled his legal challenges to an election loss.

Rudy Giuliani, Sidney Powell and Jenna Ellis boasted at last week's baffling news conference that they were leading an "elite strike force" of lawyers to overturn the 2020 election results, but Powell has already been fired and they keep losing their cases, reported NBC News.

"It's beyond an embarrassment," said Glenn Kirschner, a former federal prosecutor and current MSNBC legal analyst. "It's both really poor lawyering and it has the worst possible motive behind it. It's all in the name of overturning the will of American voter."

‘Sore loser’ doesn’t do justice to the epic tantrum Trump is having: columnist

Published

on

Writing in the Washington Post this Tuesday, columnist Dana Milbank says that when it comes to Donald Trump's stint in the White House, it's all over except for the pouting.

"Back during the Florida recount in 2000, George W. Bush loyalists made T-shirts altering the Gore-Lieberman logo to say 'Sore-Loserman.' But 'sore loser' doesn’t do justice to the epic tantrum President Trump has performed to assuage his narcissistic injury. Trump-Pence has become Rump-Nonsense," Milbank writes.

According to Milbank, Trump's loss by more than 6 million votes is just the beginning regarding his current losing streak. He has lost in every single post-election ballot-counting challenge, and he's also losing key Republican allies, such as Chris Christie, who called Trump’s legal team’s antics a “national embarrassment.”
