The internet roasts Kellyanne Conway for confessing Comey tipped election to Trump

White House senior advisor Kellyanne Conway

After two flailing, back-to-back interviews on Monday morning news shows, the internet completely unleashed on senior White House advisor Kellyanne Conway.

After her interview with “Good Morning America” co-host George Stephanopoulos, neo-conservative political analyst Bill Kristol noted one major point Conway seemed to slip up admitting.

“Kellyanne seems to say Trump wouldn’t have won without the Comey announcement 11 days out,” Kristol tweeted.

Meanwhile, former ethics director Walter Shaub had his own commentary about the questionable ethics of the senior counselor.

“Kellyanne Conway, with three ethics violations under your belt, please heed this warning: Don’t advocate for the President’s re-election campaign when you go on CNN after this next commercial break,” Shaub tweeted. “By now, hopefully you’ve heard of the Hatch Act.”

“Things are really getting desperate at the White House if they brought out Kellyanne Conway,” noted former White House aide and CNN commentator Keith Boykin. “She’s already violated the Hatch Act twice for illegal political conduct, and she violated federal ethics laws when she promoted Ivanka Trump’s clothing line on national television.”

On Tuesday, Donald Trump's former campaign manager, Corey Lewandowski, testified before the House Judiciary Committee. Lewandowski's appearance before Congress was significant because Donald Trump reportedly told him to tell Jeff Sessions to limit the scope of Mueller's Russia probe.

Lewandowski was defiant in his opening statement, slamming the investigation as biased and knocking Hillary Clinton. He also declared that any entity that tried to meddle in a U.S. election should be in prison.

He said that he handled as many as a thousand emails. "And unlike Hillary Clinton, I don't think I ever deleted any of those," Lewandowski said. "Many of them were either responded to with one-word answers or floated to other staff for additional follow-up. But throughout it all, and to the best of my recollection, I don't recall ever having any conversations with foreign entities, let alone any who were operating to manipulate the outcome of an election."

A new report from Vice claims that white supremacist organizations are increasingly viewing Osama Bin Laden, the late mastermind of the 9/11 terrorist attacks, as a role model whose actions can influence the future of their movement.

The report finds that neo-Nazi group Atomwaffen Division has recently started using Bin Laden's image in its propaganda while also promoting Islamist extremists' willingness to commit mass murder in the name of their religion as something that should be inspiring to American white nationalists.

It's not just the American military whose members have been spending cash at President Donald Trump's golf resort in Turnberry, Scotland.

Politico reports that "a group of Saudi royals stayed at the resort for about a week at the tail end of extended travel" and that they brought "a party of 25 people and more than a hundred pieces of luggage."

This is not the first time that Saudi officials have plugged money into Trump properties.

As Pulitzer Prize-winning Washington Post reporter David Fahrenthold has documented, members of the Saudi government have also helped prop up flagship Trump hotels in New York and Chicago since his election.
