In Tuesday night's State of the Union address President Donald Trump "is going to call for an end to the politics of resistance, retribution and call for more comity," Counselor to the President Kellyanne Conway told reporters Monday afternoon, according to pool reports.


Conway took the liberty of spelling out "comity," assuming perhaps that reporters did not understand the word or know it means "courtesy and considerate behavior toward others."

One reporter challenged Conway, asking, "does resistance mean if you resist the president or question him?"

"Not at all," Conway claimed. "He’s calling for cooperation and he’s calling for comity —c-o-m-i-t-y —and also compromise."

The Resistance is the name of unaffiliated grassroots groups nationwide that work to protest and oppose the President's agenda.
