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.

Trump said he ‘loved’ the fact that America is more divided than ever: ex-GOP congressman

Published

on

President Donald Trump bragged about increasing divisions in America during a White House meeting, a former Republican congressman explained on MSNBC on Monday.

Former Rep. David Jolly (R-FL) told host Joy Reid that "Donald Trump has intentionally tried to create the anxiety" that Americans are explaining.

"Garry Kasparov, the Russian freedom activist, has said the point of disinformation isn't to manipulate the truth, it's to exhaust your critical thinking," Jolly explained. "To exhaust your critical thinking, that's what we're experiencing as voters."

"I had a colleague that was in a meeting in the Roosevelt Room and he said he heard Trump say, 'Have you ever seen the nation so divided?' My colleagues and others said, 'No, we haven't.' Trump said, 'I love it that way.' This is the currency that he's peddling as political strategy, but it's not one we have to accept," Jolly explained.

One of the key new developments is a fresh volley of attacks on the behavior of supporters for Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), which is being characterized as "Trump-like" by former Vice President Joe Biden and former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg.

"Former Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg’s presidential campaign, which has largely focused its attacks on President Trump, on Monday mounted a frontal offensive against one of his Democratic rivals for the first time, comparing Senator Bernie Sanders’s campaign tactics with those employed by the president," wrote Thomas Kaplan, Kate Conger, and Reid Epstein.
