Stephen Colbert on Tuesday ripped Kellyanne Conway for defending Donald Trump even as the president continues to offer an inconsistent timeline on the Stormy Daniels payout.
“Of course it’s not easy lying for Donald Trump because Trump keep changing his story,” Colbert said Tuesday, noting the president claimed he had “no idea” about the money—despite claims by people close to him who say Trump know about the deal “months before he denied it.”
Conway on Sunday told CNN’s Jake Tapper that when the president claimed he has “no idea” about the Daniels payment, he mean he had no idea in 2016, when the money was originally dispensed.
“I think she’s saying that in 2018 Trump knew, but he was answering in 2018 as if it were 2016 when he didn’t know,” Colbert explained. “Let me respond to that not as current Stephen Colbert, but as the Stephen from before I saw that clip”
“I could not have a lower opinion of Kellyanne Conway,” Colbert said, adding, “that’s true now.”
Trump brags Amy Coney Barrett will kill abortion rights: ‘I guess she maybe would’
President Donald Trump told Fox News that he expects Supreme Court nominee Amy Coney Barrett to strike down Roe v. Wade and the right to have an abortion.
Trump made the remarks in an interview that aired Sunday on Fox & Friends after host Pete Hegseth noted that the president had previously said that his Supreme Court picks would "automatically" overturn Roe v. Wade.
"I didn't think it was for me to discuss that with her," Trump explained. "Because it's something that she's going to be ruling on. And this is what I was told -- although, I would have had the right to do that."
Trump has recruited an army of volunteer lawyers to immediately contest the election results: report
According to a report from Politico, Donald Trump's campaign has recruited an army of hundreds of volunteer lawyers who will supplement a team of hired attorneys to dispute vote totals and observe polling locations in an attempt to stave off an election defeat for the president on November 3rd.
Pointing out the effort to gear up for legal challenges began over a year ago, the report states "Republicans are preparing pre-written legal pleadings that can be hurried to the courthouse the day after the election, as wrangling begins over close results and a crush of mail-in ballots."
This GOP senator just proposed a bill to help Trump undermine the election
A new bill proposed by Republican Sen. Rick Scott is "entirely unworkable," Slate reported Thursday evening, but demonstrates the GOP's intense desire to make sure millions of votes aren't counted in the general election by severely restricting the time frame during which they can be tallied.
The Orwellian-named "Help America Vote Act of 2020," which Scott proposed Thursday, would help to codify President Donald Trump's desire, stated last week, to ensure that the preliminary tally of votes on Election Day will count as the final vote count in the election.
