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

Published

on

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.

The New York Fire Department is struggling to make its way through the coronavirus crisis. Currently, 493 members of the NYFD have tested positive for COVID-19 and more than 3,000 are out sick.

Anthony Almojera, an EMS Lieutenant-paramedic for the FDNY told CNN Tuesday that he doesn't know how they're managing the constant influx of calls for help from New Yorkers.

"It's truly a testament to the EMS workers that we have here, the EMTs and medics," he told host Jim Sciutto. "It's pretty amazing to see how they're going out in spite of seeing all their co-workers get sick. It's frightening for a lot of us. We don't want to bring it home. We don't want to get sick with it but, you know, this is our job, we treat the sick and injured. We still have all of our regular 9-1-1 calls. It's truly a testament to the EMTs."

‘Can we get a refund?’ Trump flack Stephanie Grisham faces a landslide of mockery after her abrupt dismissal

Published

on

White House Press Secretary Stephanie Grisham is reportedly being relieved of her duties after having gone a full ten months on the job without holding a single press briefing.

Given that Grisham hauled in a salary of $183,000 despite never actually appearing before reporters to answer questions, some Americans are asking if we can get a "refund" for her purported services.

Others, meanwhile, are simply happy to see her leave despite having rarely, if ever, seen her talk in public.

Writing for the conservative Bulwark, Tim Miller posed the question: "Why is Trump obsessed with hydroxychloroquine?' by noting the president has become one of, if not its biggest, proponents.
