Trump advisor Kellyanne Conway, who appears to be more and more physically eaten alive by anxiety and guilt with every passing day, had the chutzpah to go on Anderson Cooper’s show on CNN and attempt to defend the President’s shocking sudden dismissal of FBI Director James Comey.
Unfortunately for Kellyanne, Cooper was certainly on point, and successfully parried her insane spin-doctored talking points.
Cooper began with the obvious, bringing up the fact that James Comey’s firing happened suddenly, with timing that is very suspect considering how the FBI has been moving forward with its high-profile investigation into Trump’s collusion with Vladimir Putin’s regime in Russia during the presidential campaign. Cooper addressed the White House’s official rationale for the firing, saying, “As a candidate, Trump praised James Comey. Donald Trump talked about this on the campaign all the time. All of a sudden, the White House is concerned about James Comey’s handling of Hillary Clinton’s emails?”
An unnerved Conway tried to twist his argument and, in classic Trumpian fashion, shift accountability for a questionable action away from Trump himself. Said Conway, “I think you’re looking at the wrong set of facts here, Anderson. In other words you’re going back to the campaign. This is the president of the United States, he acted decisively today, he acted at the direction of his deputy attorney general. He makes complete sense because he has lost confidence in the FBI director and he took the recommendation of Rob Rosenstein, the deputy attorney general who has been on the job for two weeks.” Are you glad that Cooper called out the White House for their obvious falsehoods?
