White House adviser Kellyanne Conway on Wednesday snapped at correspondent Brian Karem after he questioned the Trump administration’s attack on mail-in voting.
“Do you think you can be secure with a mail-in ballot?” Karem asked Conway during a Wednesday gaggle outside the White House.
“It depends,” Conway replied. “It can be but it depends.”
“On what?” Karem wondered.
“It depends on whether all the protocols are followed,” Conway asserted.
“If you’re going to make sure they’re being followed then [mail-in voting] should be safe,” Karem noted.
“No, that’s ridiculous on your part,” Conway fired back. “I just gave you examples of states where they had to disqualify ballots.”

Michigan congresswoman has a ‘voter protection plan’ to keep Trump from stealing the election
In Michigan's 8th Congressional District, Democratic Rep. Elissa Slotkin has not only been campaigning for reelection — the former CIA officer has also been sounding the alarm about the possibility voter intimidation and things that President Donald Trump might do to steal the election. And she discusses some of her concerns in an interview with Politico published this week.
Politico's Tim Alberta explains, "(Slotkin) worries that just winning is no longer enough. With the president regularly lobbing allegations of a rigged election — one that he cannot possibly lose fair and square — Slotkin, a former CIA officer, worries that America could be hurtling toward a civil and constitutional crisis. This is not what a vulnerable freshman campaigner is often preoccupied with down the home stretch of their maiden reelection campaign, but Slotkin can think of little else these days."
Donald Trump Jr. says COVID death rate is ‘good stuff’ that ‘shouldn’t end your life’
Ignoring the deaths of hundreds of thousands of Americans, Donald Trump Jr. argued on Monday that people "shouldn't end your life" due to COVID-19.
The president's son made the remarks at a campaign event in Lake Township, Ohio where he claimed that Democratic nominee Joe Biden would "lock down the country forever."
"If you're susceptible, you take reasonable precautions," he opined. "If you're young and you don't, you've got to live."
"They don't understand that," Trump continued. "They don't talk about the death rate plummeting or any of the good stuff. They just say, 'Well, the infection rate is up.'"
If there’s another Trump term the FBI will turn into the ‘Ministry of Truth’ for his foes: ex-FBI agent
Former FBI Agent Asha Rangappa anticipates President Donald Trump would turn the FBI into the "Ministry of Truth" if he's reelected next week.
Writing in the Washington Post, the Yale University senior lecturer explained that the president has repeatedly lashed out at FBI Director Christopher Wray and Attorney General Bill Barr for refusing to prosecute former President Barack Obama and former Vice President Joe Biden ahead of the election. Trump alleges that they "spied on my campaign," but has failed to produce any evidence to support it. When Barr appointed a special prosecutor to look into the matter, nothing was found that he could prosecute.
