Really? Does Kellyanne Conway really think she’s fooling everyone? I’ve got to say that for me, this particular “presidential counselor” is nothing more than a poor Ann Coulter copycat, and as much as I can’t stand Coulter, at least she has the decency to laugh at herself (sometimes) — if you’ve ever seen her sparring with Bill Maher, Coulter often can’t even keep a straight face as she’s spewing her brand of b.s. But, Kellyanne Conway is apparently so utterly full of herself, she’ll sit there straight faced when asked what “Alternative facts” are,
and say something like this:
Yes, Conway did compare her completely and purposefully made-up “Bowling Green massacre ” and coined term “alternative facts” to the Best Picture snafu at this year’s Oscars.
Yes, because the lies and propaganda you are spewing to news outlets and in public forums the world around, purportedly speaking on behalf of your boss who inexplicably landed at the head of the White House Mar-a-Lago table, are just silly little mistakes we should all laugh off.
Not only that, but in this utterly infuriating (if you can make it through the entire interview, I heartily congratulate you) interview with CBS’ Norah O’Donnell, Conway continues with her stoic rhetoric, and attempts to gain sympathy for her predicament as a conservative woman. You see, not only does poor Kellyanne suffer the plight of being an outspoken woman, judged for “what she wore, not said”, she’s also “cast aside” as a conservative woman, “by traditional feminist outlets”.
Good gods, I am just blown away by the gall. Yes, it’s entirely ridiculous that women from all walks of life and in all positions, professional or personal, are judged by their appearance or for what they wear. Note that in the interview — practically in the same breath as she’s complaining about people judging her appearance — Conway hypocritically gets in a shot at everyone else for their appearance. Asked who she was referencing in this piece where she responded to criticism of her inauguration day outfit,
the counselor responded: “Walk through an airport, look at a lot of America today, they don’t wear anything that snaps, buttons or zippers, and that’s okay, and that’s okay, that’s their business, but why criticize what I wear?”
So, basically, you’re looking for sympathy about the way you’re being judged, by judging others in exactly the same way?
I think we’re going to need Prince again.
In reality, about the only line Conway can truly draw between her “mistakes” and the Oscars, is that she could probably be a best (worst) actress contender.
Here’s the full piece; good night and good luck.
