White House counselor to the president Kellyanne Conway insisted on Monday that President Donald Trump was “focused on other things” on the same day that his former campaign manager, Paul Manafort, was reportedly indicted by Special Counsel Robert Mueller.
During an interview on Fox & Friends, Conway was asked about the news that Mueller had issued indictments in the investigation into Russia’s interference in the 2016 U.S. presidential campaign.
“As the president has said, everyone is fully cooperating with these investigations,” Conway insisted. “But the president has also made clear as recently as this weekend that he considers this a hoax and that people should be looking into campaign coordination, if not collusion, between the Clinton campaign, the DNC, this Russian dossier.”
After a two-minute rant about the former Democratic nominee, Conway announced: “We would be glad to stop talking about Hillary Clinton and the campaign, we dispensed with her a year ago. But she just won’t go away.”
According to Conway, the Russia investigation is not even on the president’s mind — even though he tweeted about it six times in a row on Monday.
“The president is very focused on other things,” she opined. “What he said yesterday in his tweets is no different than what he said all along.”
“I just want to tell you that the president continues to focus on what matters to people,” Conway added.

‘Jesus was not a socialist!’ Fox News panel explodes over Jesus Christ’s political views
Conservative religious pundits on Fox News recoiled in outrage on Sunday after a left-leaning guest suggested that Jesus Christ was "more of a socialist" than a capitalist.
During a Fox & Friends segment designed to cast doubt on the faith or Democratic presidential candidates, evangelical pastor Robert Jeffress argued that socialism is "antithetical to Christianity."
But St. Paul Reverend Dee Dawkins-Haigler reminded the other panelists that scriptures seemed to point to what people now call socialism.
"We believe in things like, what did you do to the least of them?" Dawkins-Haigler explained. "You fed the hungry, you clothed the naked, you went to see those who are in prison."
Chris Wallace grills Pence aide on Russia attacks: ‘You can’t say it didn’t happen and then say they leaked it’
Fox News host Chris Wallace called out Marc Short, an aide to Vice President Mike Pence, after he insisted that there is no intelligence that shows Russia has a preference for President Donald Trump in the 2020 election.
"There's not intelligence that said the Russians are trying to help Donald Trump win elections," Short said during an interview on Fox News Sunday.
"I know that's the White House argument," Wallace acknowledged. "There is a consistent story that came out this week and we've heard it from members of the committee, from members of the intelligence community, we've heard it from people in your own White House."
GOP lawmakers melt down after Maryland AP history class teacher uses illustration to compare Trump to Nazis
According to a report from the Washington Times, Maryland Republicans are up in arms after an AP history teacher at a local high school used a slide to illustrate similarities between Donald Trump's policies and those of the Nazis.
The report states, "A slide used in an Advanced Placement history class at Loch Raven High School in Towson shows a picture of Trump above pictures of a Nazi swastika and a flag of the Soviet Union. Two captions read 'wants to round up a group of people and build a giant wall' and 'oh, THAT is why it sounds so familiar!'"
