The actions of Donald Trump have become so repulsive, it’s harder than ever for even his most crooked, immoral administration members to defend him.
Earlier today, Trump advisor and mouthpiece Kellyanne Conway had a ridiculous reaction when she was questioned about the president’s horrific attitudes toward the media and journalists in the wake of the Capital Gazette newsroom shooting in Maryland. When Conway was at a press gaggle, she was asked a direct question about Trump’s repeated attacks on the media, which have probably encouraged and fueled the very attitudes that led to the shooting, a tragedy that left five people dead.
When Conway was asked by reporters if Trump would now “stop calling reporters the enemy of the people”, the president’s right-hand woman was left absolutely stunned – and speechless. For once, Conway had no response – because we all know that Trump is unpredictable, unhinged, and unlikely to stop calling for hatred and violence against anyone who stands up to him.
Bloomberg News’ Jennifer Jacobs reported Conway’s response:
Fox News tweeted another response from Conway, which she had given during an interview – and it goes against everything that Trump believes:
An attack on innocent journalists, innocent Americans, is an attack on all of us.”
We all know that the President of the United States does not value the lives of journalists, even when they are doing honest work and Americans must rely on them for the truth (because we definitely can’t rely on the Trump administration). Trump isn’t going to stop attacking the media, and Conway knows it.
You can watch Conway make her pathetic remarks on the shooting below:
