Kellyanne Conway: Trump Didn’t Admit To Being Under Investigation When He Said He’s Under Investigation

Politico reports:

When President Donald Trump wrote online last week that “I am being investigated for firing the FBI Director,” it was not an admission that he is indeed being investigated, counselor to the president Kellyanne Conway said Monday morning, but instead a Twitter-shortened reaction to media coverage of ongoing probes into his 2016 campaign.

Conway’s insistence Monday morning that Trump’s tweet last Friday was not what it seemed followed in the footsteps of the president’s personal attorney, Jay Sekulow, who said Sunday in an array of political talk show appearances that regardless of what he has written online, Trump is not under investigation.

Conway told Fox News’s “Fox & Friends” host Ainsley Earhardt, “That’s the president responding to a Washington Post report that included five anonymous sources. And that’s the president, in his 140 characters, through his significant social media platform, Ainsley, telling everybody, ‘wow, look at the irony here.’”

    It’s hot and humid in BCN today. As I am gay I only ever think about the beach – in fact I am too gay to even be able to drum up the brain cells to think about pop music. Anyway how do you think I’d look in this?

    No matter what, if Trump isn’t under investigation he should be. And that’s the bottom line here.

    • Chucktech

      And if, officially, he isn’t now, he will be. Very soon. Like, bigly, tremendously soon. That’s what people are saying.

    Muslims attacked with baseball bats a girl kidnapped and killed, more murders in the UK, but THIS is what Fox & KellyAnne want to talk about? The administration couldn’t make their priorities and what types of American’s they value any more clear.

    • Todd20036

      Actually, it follows their pattern. If Muslims attack (or even liberals), then it gets splashed over the news.
      When RWNJs (especially if they are white) attack, it’s downplayed.

  • stevenj

    “Conway’s insistence Monday morning that Trump’s tweet last Friday was not what it seemed…..”

    That pretty much describes nearly everything trump has said.

  • Ernest Endevor

    More importantly, we’re all still awaiting news on the recent major renovation of Kellyanne’s face. How, when, where, and what happened to the bags under her eyes? Who is doing the styling and is this part of Melania’s First Face/First Lady outreach program to the poorz? And is Clairol Shade: SB2, ULTRA LIGHT COOL SUMMER BLONDE now the official White House color? The American People need answers to these important questions.

  • billbear1961

    I’ll repeat this post I made on the Nugent story (where he claims–against all the incontrovertible evidence–that he never said anything hateful about Obama):

    They’re destroying the very concept of truth, and the media are just letting them.

    They just–right to our faces–deny what we have concrete evidence of.

    It is absolutely intolerable–but the thing that is MOST intolerable about it is that PEOPLE PUT UP WITH IT.

    It’s a kind of accelerating ROT, and it has got to STOP.

    Unless serious journalists, respectable politicians AND other decent, ordinary citizens all around the country start making it abundantly clear they won’t put up with this, anymore, this society is going to become a MADHOUSE. Trump’s “presidency,” the way he and others are leaving reality FAR behind and inventing one of their own, is a sign it’s already HERE and preparing to DIG IN.

    This kind of aberrant behaviour–the right-wing propaganda machine, the growing lies (in number and brazenness) and worsening extremism coming from GOP politicians and so many others on the right–should have been confronted LONG AGO.

    It may well be that, after 25 years of rampaging and constantly getting WORSE for lack of any consistent and FORCEFUL blowback from the responsible people who SHOULD have spoken out relentlessly and aggressively against it from the very START, it may now be too late to do much about it!

    But we MUST TRY, because no civilized human being, who respects the truth and democracy and simple decency, can ACCEPT THIS!!

    They must be made to admit, with forceful displays of undeniable EVIDENCE, that they are in the WRONG.

    In any event, however the right may react to the challenge, no civilized human being can agree to bow down to what he or she can PROVE is a pack of dangerous, hateful, self-serving LIES.

    We can’t pretend baldfaced lying and the EVIL, totally unjustified cruelties they have in mind for this society are in ANY way acceptable in a world–in a TRUE democracy–where FACTS and FAIRNESS must always MATTER!!

    That these vicious liars–these fundamentally dishonest and infinitely greedy people with the mindless cruelties they have planned for so MANY–have the GALL to call themselves god-fearing just BOGGLES the mind!!

    To submit to them, when we KNOW that they are liars and are motivated by the most appallingly cruel bigotry and willful ignorance, would be a CRIME, a gross BETRAYAL of this republic, a moral ABOMINATION.

    “If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually
    come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the
    State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or
    military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for
    the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is
    the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the
    greatest enemy of the State.”
