‘Who cares?’ Kellyanne Conway spurns Fox & Friends for calling Trump’s North Korea propaganda video ‘kind of crazy’

Published

Kellyanne Conway, counselor to President Donald Trump, on Wednesday pushed back on the notion that the White House had created a “propaganda” video to impress North Korea.

During an interview with Conway, the hosts of Fox & Friends noted that the White House presented Kim Jong-un with an American-made video extolling his regime, which reporters mistook for North Korean propaganda.

“Who’s idea was that?” Fox News host Steve Doocy asked Conway. “That video, some people love it, some people think it’s kind of crazy — propaganda.”

“It came from our National Security Council,” Conway explained. “Kim Jong-un has a decision to make. He can either be nuclear capable or he can swiftly move towards complete, verifiable, irreversible denuclearization of the Korea peninsula.”

“Don’t give too much attention to the angry people,” she added. “Don’t give too much credit to the critics, frankly. Almost who cares? They’re skeptical, they’re cynical.”

Doocy pressed Conway to reveal Kim’s reaction to the video. But she refused.

“What did Mr. Kim say when he looked at that video?” the Fox News host wondered.

“I haven’t spoken to Chairman Kim,” Conway said. “But what did he say? Yes — he — yes.”

President Donald Trump's psychological problems are getting worse and could be consequential as America faces a potential COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic.

MSNBC's Lawrence O'Donnell on Thursday interviewed Dr. Lance Dodes, a former assistant clinical professor of psychiatry at Harvard Medical School.

"As you pointed out, Lawrence, this man is about himself. He really is not about the country, he's not about public health," Dr. Dodes said of Trump.

"Although he has already severely damaged the country by being a psychopath or sociopath -- in many ways, he's damaged democracy -- I think people's lives will be lost now," he warned. "Individual lives will be lost because of the way he's mishandling the coronavirus issue."

‘Something really rotten’: Here’s the evidence of extensive voter suppression in Georgia’s notorious 2018 election

Published

As the 2020 presidential campaign cycle grinds on, there’s renewed concern about the 21st century’s newest form of warfare: cyber-sabotage of government systems, including elections and online disinformation intended to incite unrest. But as Suppressed: The Fight to Vote, a documentary from Brave New Films, makes clear, partisan voter suppression tactics with 20th-century roots remain and can thwart multitudes of voters from changing their state’s political leaders.

The real story behind Trump’s new lawsuit against the New York Times

Published

on

Wednesday was an ominous day for freedom of the press in this country, and I want to tell you why.

You may have heard or seen that President Trump filed a libel suit against the New York Times. Perhaps you weren’t surprised: the president is known to frequently disparage the Times even as he reads it obsessively. Borrowing a page from what I’ve referred to before as a Mount Rushmore of totalitarians, Robespierre, Hitler, Stalin and Mao, Trump loves to call the press the “enemy of the people.”
