Kellyanne Conway rants wildly in attack on fact checkers: ‘Americans are their own fact checkers’

Published

Counselor to the president and former Donald Trump campaign manager Kellyanne Conway blasted journalist fact-checking of the administration during an appearance on New York’s 710 WOR Radio with Mark Simone.

“Hey, Kellyanne Conway, here’s something you guys got to work on,” Simone counseled. “Liberals seize more and more control of the infrastructure, they control the newspapers, they control the networks.”

“In the last few years, they’ve taken total control of the fact checking sites, and they’re very slanted,” Simone claimed. “Something’s got to be done about this.”

“Yes, fact-checking the fact-checkers,” Conway agreed.

Trump’s State of the Union speech was fact-checked by the New York Times, the Washington Post, Associated Press, USA Today, ABC News, CBS News, NBC News and even the BBC.

“But look, Americans are their own fact checkers,” Conway said.

“The stock market is something they know about because they’re part of the investor class,” Conway claimed of the American people.

“And so, people know, they have their own facts and figures, in terms of meaning which facts and figures are important to them,” Conway continued.

“I just have the faith in people to see through that,” Conway said.

Early in Trump’s administration, Conway was roundly mocked for her defense of “Alternate Facts” to justify Trump positions.

On Thursday, during one of the final scheduled impeachment hearings this week, National Security Council official Fiona Hill demolished President Donald Trump's conspiracy theory that Ukraine, rather than Russia, meddled in the 2016 election, calling it a "fictional narrative" and noting that it originated with the Kremlin itself.

But in conversation with reporters, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) flatly disbelieved Hill's testimony, and insisted he still held onto the theory.

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy told me that he was not going to lose any GOP votes during impeachment.

Published

MSNBC anchor Nicolle Wallace on Thursday highlighted one of the key moments from the impeachment inquiry testimony from Dr. Fiona Hill.

"Often when women show anger, it’s not fully appreciated. It’s often, you know, pushed onto emotional issues perhaps, or deflected on other people," Hill testified.

Here's Fiona Hill on why she thinks Sondland misunderstood her anger — and how women's anger is often viewed, more generally: "It's not fully appreciated. It's often pushed off onto emotional issues." pic.twitter.com/AsMR3A9InI

Mulvaney lawyer denies Mick was ‘so heavily involved’ — despite his White House briefing room confession

Published

on

Acting White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney was referenced multiple times during Dr. Fiona Hill's testimony Thursday, but Mulvaney's lawyer said he doesn't understand why.

"We have no idea why Ms. Hill believes Mr. Mulvaney was so heavily involved, especially in light of Ambassador Sondland’s contrary testimony," said Fox News reporter Chad Pergram, quoting a statement from Robert Driscoll.

As former federal prosecutor Joyce Vance pointed out, Hill recalled during her testimony how angry she was about Sondland not briefing her. She said that after hearing his testimony Wednesday and learning he was briefing Mike Pompeo, John Bolton, Mulvaney and President Donald Trump. She then decided he was correct-they had separate missions and Sondland was on a domestic political errand.
