Kellyanne Conway Claims Martin Luther King Would Be Against Trump Impeachment

Kellyanne Conway Claims Martin Luther King Would Be Against Trump ImpeachmentKellyanne Conway on Monday responded to a question on how the president is observing Martin Luther King Day by claiming the civil-rights leader would oppose the impeachment of President Donald Trump.During a press gathering at the White House, NBC News correspondent Geoff Bennett asked the senior Trump aide how the president was observing Martin Luther King Day, prompting Conway to first note that Trump was preparing for his trip to Davos before saying the president “agrees with many of the things that Dr. Martin Luther King stood for.”From there, it only got more bizarre.Adding that the president and Dr. King would see eye-to-eye on “unity and equality,” Conway complained that it’s not the president who is “trying to tear the country apart through an impeachment process and a lack of substance that really is very shameful at this point.”“I’ve held my opinion on it for a very long time, but when you see the articles of impeachment that came out, I don’t think it was Dr. King’s vision to have Americans dragged through a process where the president is not going to be removed from office, is not being charged bribery, extortion, high crimes and misdemeanors,” she continued.After declaring that anyone who cares for the phrase “and justice for all” should appreciate that the president has a “full-throttle defense” when it comes to impeachment, Conway concluded by linking herself with MLK.“I, this morning, was reading some of the lesser-known passages by Dr. King and I appreciate the fact that we as a nation respect him by giving him his own day,” she proclaimed.“I’m happy to share a birthday with this day,” Conway concluded.Kellyanne Conway Melts Down Under Grilling by Fox NewsRead more at The Daily Beast.Got a tip?

Kellyanne Conway Melts Down Under Grilling by Fox News

Kellyanne Conway Melts Down Under Grilling by Fox NewsWhite House counselor Kellyanne Conway was asked four times by Fox News on Thursday morning to “flat-out” refute claims from Rudy Giuliani associate Lev Parnas that President Donald Trump was fully “aware” of what he was up to in Ukraine. She didn’t give a straight answer once. After Fox aired a clip of Parnas’ interview with MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow from Wednesday night, they asked her to refute his central claims. Conway first tried to laugh it off, joking with no sense of irony, “Remember, people who go on TV are never under oath.” Meanwhile, the Trump White House has blocked witnesses from testifying under oath and criticized the credibility of those who have. But that argument didn’t satisfy Fox News anchor Bill Hemmer, who repeatedly grilled Conway on the substance of what Parnas was saying. “Are you saying flat-out, 100 percent what he alleges is not true, yes or no?” Hemmer asked. Instead of answering yes or no, Conway went on to offer up an “objection” to the idea that Parnas could know Trump was aware of his movements. “You cannot say what someone else knew or thought,” she said. “That was a TV show, not a court of law.” Tucker Carlson Goes Full Bernie Bro in Attack on CNNAs she continued to filibuster, Hemmer interrupted her. “But back on Parnas, cut through it: Is he lying or not, Kellyanne?” “He’s a proven liar, he’s been indicted,” she answered, again without addressing the specific claims about Trump. Moments later, Hemmer’s co-host Sandra Smith jumped in as well. “Just to finish on that point, it’s a yes or no question,” she said. “‘Trump knew exactly what was going on,’ said Lev Parnas, and we’re asking, is that statement true or false?” “Trump knew what was going on how?” Conway said, answering the true or false question with a question of her own. “In other words, what is Lev Parnas actually saying?” It was her fourth time refusing to answer the question and ultimately the Fox hosts had no choice but to move on. MSNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell Accuses CNN of Helping Trump Spread LiesRead more at The Daily Beast.Got a tip?

Fox News Host Confronts Kellyanne Conway on Trump’s Epstein Retweet

Fox News Host Confronts Kellyanne Conway on Trump’s Epstein RetweetPerhaps Kellyanne Conway thought she would have an easier time than usual on Fox News Sunday this week with regular host Chris Wallace on vacation. She was wrong. Right out of the gate, fill-in host Bill Hemmer confronted the White House counselor about President Trump’s retweet of a conspiracy theory linking Bill Clinton to Jeffrey Epstein’s prison suicide over the weekend. “I think the president just wants everything to be investigated,” Conway said before alluding to the alleged connection between Clinton and Epstein revealed in unsealed court documents the day before Epstein took his life.“There’s always this rush to we need transparency, we need accountability, when it involved fictional accusations like ‘collusion’ with Russia to swing an election,” she continued, attempting the claim political bias in the case. “This seems to be very concrete in that Jeffrey Epstein has done some very bad things over a number of years. So let’s continue to investigate that.” CNN’s Christiane Amanpour Relentlessly Grills Kellyanne Conway on Trump’s Role in ShootingsHemmer could have moved on, but he didn’t. “Back on the retweet quickly, it’s clear what he was trying to say, wasn’t it?” While CNN’s Jake Tapper pointedly refused to show the tweet in question on screen, Fox put it up for its audience to see in full. “I think the president just wants everything to be investigated,” Conway replied, before pivoting to attack the media for highlighting Trump’s connection to Epstein. “Trying to connect the president to this monster from years ago where they’re seen dancing in a video versus other people who were actively flying around with this monster, on his island, which was known as pedophilia island, perhaps there’s a public interest in knowing more about that.” “But again, this is all speculative and it’s not for me to go further than where the DOJ and FBI are right now,” she added. But she apparently has no problem with her boss amplifying the wild “speculation” of others on Twitter.
