I’d rather ‘slit my wrists and bleed out’: Kellyanne Conway is glad she’s not Sean Spicer

In an exclusive interview with New York Magazine, Kellyanne Conway opened up about her role in Donald Trump’s White House, as one of his closest and most loyal advisers. It’s very important to Conway to be in this position, knowing that she “can bend [the president’s] ear at any time,” according to the exclusive.

Kellyanne recounted a media appearance from the day Gen. Mike Flynn resigned as Trump’s national security adviser. As she explained that day, before Flynn formally resigned, that he had the president’s “full confidence” and was swarmed by a flock of reporters, she said, “I don’t do the press briefings. Sean does!”

And she doesn’t want his job either. Chewing the same cinnamon Orbit gum as White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer, Conway basically said she would never want Spicer’s job.

“Slit my wrists, bleed out, put cement shoes on, jump off the bridge, and then I’ll take the job — are you kidding me?” she said.

Rather, she prefers her position close to the president, likely because, as Nuzzi points out, they are eerily similar:

[H]er opportunism, jumping from Ted Cruz to Trump mid-campaign; her mercenary sense of loyalty, somehow both total and totally for hire; her ease at projecting, in even the most staged encounters, a blue-collar authenticity; her fighter’s instinct, which dictates that she never give an inch or even try to persuade; and, above all, her very loose relationship to the truth and her very evident love of the game.

As for Spicer, he told Nuzzi that his position entails “answering on behalf of somebody whom you’re speaking for,” which he says people seem to forget. “You’re representing their point of view, the issues that they care about, and that’s a very different thing than answering for yourself.”

Conway prefers her “walk-in privileges” at the Oval Office. “When I want to talk to [the president,] I go talk to him,” she explained.

The incident occurred when the barista, Alex Beckom, 19, asked her customer to pull her mask up from her chin. The customer was a White woman wearing a Trump 2020 mask. The customer's response was that she was being discriminated against because of her support of President Donald J. Trump.

“F— Black Lives Matter,” the customer told Beckom, who is Black.

The woman then asked for a straw and sugar packets before they parted ways.

You are part of Trump’s callous and covert science experiment — you just don’t know it yet

Published

on

It’s understood the president has not done nearly enough to combat the spread of the new coronavirus. It’s understood he’s gotten in the way of states trying to protect residents. What’s not understood, however, is the United States government, under Donald Trump’s leadership, seems to be conducting a science experiment on the American people without telling us, one informed by ideology, not medicine. All things being equal, a second term for the president will not only coincide with a permanent pandemic; it will cause hundreds of thousands more people to die.

Published

on

An anonymous grand juror in the Breonna Taylor case has issued a scathing statement about prosecutors misleading the public shortly after she was given legal clearance to discuss proceedings.

According to WLKY reporter Deni Kamper, Judge Annie O’Connell of the Kentucky 30th Circuit Court 2nd Division ruled on Tuesday that the grand juror will be allowed to talk about the case publicly, roughly three weeks after they accused Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron of misleading the public about the case prosecutors presented to jurors.
