Kellyanne Conway melts down when she’s asked to name one black senior adviser in Trump’s West Wing

Published

on

Kellyanne Conway, counselor to President Donald Trump, struggled on Sunday when she was asked to name one prominent black adviser who serves the White House in the West Wing.

During an interview on ABC’s This Week program, host Jonathan Karl noted that former White House employee Omarosa Manigault said that she left her job after she began to suspect that the president is racist.

“The first time I heard her suggest those awful things about the president was in this book,” Conway opined. “This is somebody that gave a glowing appraisal of Donald Trump the businessman, the star of The Apprentice, the candidate and indeed the president of the United States. She told your own network, Jon, ABC News, the day after she was fired from the White House that she had resigned. Now she’s saying that she was fired.”

Conway went on to insist that she had never heard Trump “use a racial slur about anyone.”

“She says she heard the president use racially-charged language even in the White House,” Karl noted.

“Why didn’t she tell us at the time?” Conway interrupted.

Karl also attempted to get Conway to explain who Trump was referring to when he described a group of neo-Nazis in Charlottesville “very fine people.”

“You’re not answering the question,” Karl observed after Conway refused to give a straight answer.

“Omarosa was the most prominent high-level African-American serving in the West Wing in President Trump’s staff,” Karl continued. “Who now is that person?”

“First of all, you’re totally not covering the fact that our Secretary of Housing and Urban Development [is Ben Carson],” Conway dodged.

“I’m asking you about the White House staff,” Karl pressed.

“The president works with Secretary Carson every day,” Conway droned.

“Who is that person?” Karl asked again.

“We have Jeron,” Conway said without offering a last name. “He’s done a fabulous job and very involved with Jared Kushner and President Trump on prison reform. He’s been there from the beginning and he worked with Omarosa.”

“Does he have an office in the West Wing?” Karl wondered.

“He has an office in the Executive Office of the President,” Conway remarked.

“But not in the West Wing,” Karl concluded. “What does that say to not have a single senior adviser in the West Wing who’s African-American?”

“I didn’t say that there wasn’t!” Conway exclaimed.

“Who is?” the ABC stated, giving her another shot.

“There are plenty of people,” Conway stuttered. “You should look at the fact that we have a number of different minorities.”

This word is the single biggest tipoff that Trump is lying

Published

on

President Donald Trump exhibits a verbal tic that gives away some of his biggest whoppers.

The president tells demonstrable lies on a daily basis, but it's a "flashing red light" that he's lying when he recounts someone calling him "sir," according to CNN fact-checker Daniel Dale.

"Trump has told false 'sir' stories on all manner of subjects: health care, the Middle East, the courts, unions and -- just last week -- both tariffs and social media," Dale wrote. "But no genre of Trump story is more reliably sir-heavy than his collection of suspiciously similar tales about macho men breaking into tears of gratitude in his presence."

GOP looks like it’s in a ‘state of panic’ after labeling combat veteran a ‘socialist loser’ for running as a Democrat: columnist

Published

on

Republicans in Cincinnati, Ohio, may have overstepped the boundaries of poor taste, calling a former Air Force pilot a "socialist loser."

As columnist Jason Williams writes in the Cincinnati Enquirer, the GOP majorly flubbed their campaign against the Democrat.

"Yeesh, not a good look for the Trump Party," Williams writes. "Democrat Nikki Foster is neither a socialist nor a loser, from what little we know about the Mason moderate after she launched her campaign in Ohio's 1st Congressional District on Monday."
