Donald Trump’s Russia scandal is exploding once again thanks to his own idiot son, Donald Trump Jr., who basically admitted over the weekend that he had met with a Russian lawyer during Trump’s presidential campaign.
On Monday, the queen of alternative facts, Kellyanne Conway, was sent out by Trump’s team to make a pathetic attempt at damage control, and she failed miserably! In an interview with Good Morning America, ABC host George Stephanopoulos played some footage for Conway that showed her blatantly denying that the Trump campaign had made any contact with Russian officials – and Conway basically crashed and burned on live television.
It was the perfect way to corner Conway, who has been known to lie her way out of everything. Noting that information had just been released that contradicted Conway’s past defenses about the Trump campaign, Stephanopoulos asked her:
Who misled you, and why did Don Jr., Jared Kushner, and Paul Manafort allow those public denials to stand for so many months?”
Once Conway was thrown off by being shown her own previous statements, she was caught off guard and barely managed to get through the interview. She stumbled through a response:
So as I understand it, George, some of those public disclosure forms have been amended since that time to reflect other meetings, including this one.”
Conway then said that Trump’s son hadn’t gotten any damaging information that could have hurt Trump’s opponent, Hillary Clinton, and she tried to make the case that it proved Trump Jr. hadn’t colluded with the Russian government. But Stephanopoulos wasn’t having it. He pressed her:
Why did people in the administration allow these denials to stand for so many months?”
Conway actually had to take a second before responding. She said:
The people involved in the meeting could answer those questions better for you. But as I understand it, George, people’s disclosure forms have been amended to reflect meetings such as this. And Don Jr. came forward this weekend and gave more information about the meeting.”
Stephanopoulos continued to hammer Conway, and reminded her, “After denying it!”
