So Trump is pouting because his administration's lies are being questioned? What's he going to do when they actually start investigating them?

9 ( +12 / -3 )

Conway.... if her lips are moving she is lying. See the irony in her last name? She is appealing to the nation's dumbest, which happen to be Trump's most ardent supporters. Unfortunately, they are destroying the credibility of this nation as a result.

Bannon and Kushner have thought that through for him. They're replacing those in the judiciary who might want to uphold the US Constitution and conduct real investigations, they're replacing those in the intelligence agencies who might want to conduct real investigations, they've got their supporters to believe that anything negative said about Trump in the media is fake news, and they've legitimized (in the minds of their true believers) fake news reported by Breitbart, Murdoch's global media empire, Putin's global media empire, in addition to all of the whack alt right sources.

And if any negative things might leak through, the Trump-ists will point to squirrels and say that Obama did it.

"Conway shifted the subject to health care, and his interviewers followed."

Either that should be "her interviewers" or the author know something about Conway that we don't.

CrazyJoe, "See the irony in her last name?"

Yes! Ha ha. Thanks for the laugh.

She's pretty much a waste of time. She just speculates like the rest of us as to what Trump is thinking or doing. Trump throws her out there to say all of the stupid things he doesn't have time to say himself.

What a bunch of garbage! Every president has replaced, shuffled and gave walking papers from previous administrations. All of them and they all have the right to do so, especially if they feel they could in some shape or form harm or try to harm their presidency. It's within their right, even if people who are against the president are not happy about it. I didn't like that Obama got rid of a few hundred Bush appointees, but I knew it goes with the territory. I just hope the left can stop all this whining and having temper tantrums.

And if any negative things might leak through, the Trump-ists will point to squirrels and say that Obama did it.

Good luck with that. Good on Trump for backing Conway.

rude to my very hard-working representatives

They are rude because she lies so much. I estimate 95% of the things she says are lies. She is very good at what she does. She has to lie because Trump is a liar.

I also have never seen her actually answer a question. She is like the pied piper to the Trumpites.

She takes parts of a question and uses that in every response that doesn't answer the question.

It frustrates the interviewer and allows her to communicate her agenda. The interviewer has to fact check everything she says and the interview goes nowhere.

Several reporters have actually banned her because she lies so much.

Maybe the interviewers have to be tougher with her. Refuse to move on until she's answered the question at hand. Break it down into Yes/No questions if she keeps going on with her garbage. Make an assumption about her position so she has to either refute or confirm it. Also, just ban the moron. One can only guess at how dumb she personally has made America

Rude, whiny and stacked with double standards.

“I’m not in the job of having evidence,” she said. “That’s what investigations are for.”

So for here on out the "media" shall initiate a time-delay of any future broadcasts of Conway, as she's practically admitted that she's going to spew nothing but BS, unless proven otherwise by those pesky icky things called...facts.

Nothing rude about refusing to be lied to. Nothing rude at all.

If you can't stand the heat, you shouldn't be in the kitchen, especially if it has a CIA listening microwave according to Conway.

Meanwhile, Sean Spicer says Trump didn't real mean "wire tapping" when he said wire tapping.

Trumpski's claim “rude to my very hard-working representatives” comes with him refusing to accept questions from certain media organizations because they had dared to question or criticize him previously.

Bannon and Conway, some weird duo act. Conway slapped Bannon away when he touched her back.

Even Fox News:

"Fox News Host: We don’t quote Kellyanne Conway anymore because history"

Let's all take a moment to appreciate the fact that bass4funk has thrown his lot in with the woman who claims microwaves can be turned into spy cameras...

"Let's all take a moment to appreciate the fact that bass4funk has thrown his lot in with the woman who claims microwaves can be turned into spy cameras..."

That doesn't strain credulity over on the lunatic fringe.

I can imagine that lot taking their microwave ovens back to the shop complaining that they can't pick up Fox News on it.

The main stream (Jurassic) media is not being honest about where the ObamaCare subsidies came from. Obama had to pillage money from GSEs (Government Sponsored Entities) to unconstitutionally get that money. At some point that theft had to end.

Better than Josh Earnest??? I doubt it.

I also have never seen her actually answer a question.

Neither did the previous administration.

She takes parts of a question and uses that in every response that doesn't answer the question.

Josh Earnest did the exact same thing over and over again....

It frustrates the interviewer and allows her to communicate her agenda. The interviewer has to fact check everything she says and the interview goes nowhere.

That happens with both parties.

Several reporters have actually banned her because she lies so much.

Then they shouldn't complain when Trump puts certain journalists in their place.

@Bass

Your usual whatabout approach seems to be putting this administration at the level of the last one, which you described as the least transparent and the most slippery and corrupt in history.

Please tell us about the improvements as you see them. Alternative facts Conway is a shambles, isn't she?

No, it's just saying, the left are a hypocritical bunch, when the last admin were making the same blunders, the left as usual, silent and now that the right are in the WH and get caught flat-footed, then you guys get bent out of shape.

which you described as the least transparent and the most slippery and corrupt in history.

Check Wikileaks-Podesta mails.

Please tell us about the improvements as you see them. Alternative facts Conway is a shambles, isn't she?

I don't think so and it's been almost 2 months into this. Just relax, we have 4 years at the very minimum to go.

I think one problem is many have stayed true to their values, including some on the right, who see Trump and his team for what they are. Not everyone can shape-change to drop previously held beliefs in an almighty leap onto a lunatic fringe.

Not everyone can leave their reasoning faculties at the opening to the tent along with their shoes.

'Alternative facts' can't be tolerated and as a wordsmith and an elite writer, you must have LMAOed at that expression along with being genuinely concerned with a mind that operates in this way.

You realize that your comment cuts both ways right, if the left is hypocritical for getting bent out of shape, you are equally hypocritical for not doing so now, when you did so during the past administration.

Interesting how Spicer now likes to use his hands to indicate quotation marks for ambiguous quotes from Trump. Also interesting how Trump and his lackeys like to go on about the media posting so-called "fake news", but continues to defend the "fake news" Trump constantly doles out (e.g. the imaginary wire-tapping from Obama claims, even though he can't produce one shred of evidence).

Really, the establishment? Lol

Not everyone can shape-change to drop previously held beliefs in an almighty leap onto a lunatic fringe.

That's why Hillary and the Dems are not in power.

Not everyone can leave their reasoning faculties at the opening to the tent along with their shoes.

That's the nature of party politics

you must have LMAOed at that expression along with being genuinely concerned with a mind that operates in this way.

Not my style.
