Lying every single day of your life for an ungrateful, entitled boss like Donald Trump must take its toll — and we’re seeing evidence of the president’s team falling apart all the time.
Two of Trump’s biggest mouthpieces and liars, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders and Trump counselor Kellyanne Conway have been looking more stressed out and agitated than ever before, clearly struggling to keep up with Trump’s f*ck ups and lies. Earlier today, Conway was caught on film snapping at a reporter, signaling that she is barely holding things together.
Conway completely lost it and lashed out at a CNN reporter right outside the White House, when the reporter asked about the president’s immigration policy and the fact that there are now 1,500 migrant children that have been lost by ICE under Trump’s watch. Conway did the only thing she could do — deflect blame and dance around the questions as she clung to an incident in which a photo of two children at a detention center was erroneously attributed to Trump’s presidency. Conway snapped:
Your CNN colleague retweeted that two migrant children, I suppose, laying in a cage, to make the point against this President happened under President Obama’s watch. Then deleted the tweet because it didn’t fit the narrative. Do you or do you not care about the migrant children?”
While Conway has a point that the context surrounding the photo was false, she refused to answer the real questions that do directly involve Trump. Her tone with the reporter was also incredibly unprofessional and aggressive, as she seemed just moments away from exploding and throwing a massive Trump-like temper tantrum. Fortunately, Conway realized that her composure was breaking and she chose to flee the situation instead, disappearing into the White House.
