Widespread predictions of a “blue wave” of Democratic victories in next month’s midterm elections should be taken with a hefty grain of salt, counselor to the president Kellyanne Conway warned Wednesday morning, because they emanate from the “same geniuses” who all but guaranteed a landslide win for Hillary Clinton in 2016.
“Let’s not forget the same geniuses that predicted a huge romp by that woman who lost in 2016 are the same people predicting a huge win by the Democrats this time,” Conway told Fox News’ “Fox & Friends.” “So we have to be a little bit cautious.”
The Washington Post reports:
White House counselor Kellyanne Conway on Wednesday called recent comments by Hillary Clinton “a little bit dangerous” and otherwise unloaded on the 2016 Democratic presidential nominee, saying that she is married “to a much more popular man who was actually a two-term president that she’ll never be.”
Conway offered her assessment during an interview on “Fox & Friends” on Fox News Channel, in which she was asked about Clinton’s recent assertion that Democrats have to be tougher with Republicans.
“Usually when she opens her mouth, respectfully, she offends at least one half of the country, and she did it again, but I think her discourse now is a little bit dangerous,” Conway said in an appearance on the White House lawn.
Her insults (“deplorable, irredeemable”) have become incitements (“you cannot be civil with [Republicans]”).
Time to get over 2016, too. https://t.co/jMaBgGB2I1

“Get over 2016,” she says, one day after the Mushroom Dotard led “lock her up” chants for the 1000th time. https://t.co/LkhfZpOeDR
