When they go Russia, Kellyanne Conway goes ISIS.
In case you missed the social media drama over the weekend, POTUS shaded London mayor Sadiq Khan on Sunday for urging residents to “not be alarmed” by an increased police presence following a London terror attack on Saturday night.
Of course, Trump took the mayor’s words out of context and made it sound like he was saying the attack was NBD — exactly the type of shit the Big Cheeto regularly accuses the “fake news” media of doing to him.
Well, the media sure got real on Monday — specifically, Savannah Guthrie, who asked Kellyanne if Trump needed to apologize (LOL, like he’s even physically capable of doing that?) for his “political attack.”
Having been spending the past few weeks off, Kellyanne came ready to play, telling the NBC anchor the “one-sided” report didn’t include Trump speaking to British Prime Minister Theresa May and pledging support to the nation.
After Guthrie doubled down in asking whether Trump should apologize, Conway pulled out her secret weapon: a distracting web of political mad-libs to remind us of the “savage murders” afoot! She cried:
“I’m not going to allow, on a day-and-a-half after terrorists did it again — whether they’re ISIS-inspired or ISIS-directed, they’re savage murderers. It’s an evil slaughter as the president said last night. I’m not going to let him be seen as the perpetrator here. For every time you said, ‘Russia,’ imagine if you said ‘ISIS’; every time you said ‘Twitter,’ imagine if you said ‘terrorists.’ Maybe we’d have a different type of vigilance.”
We don’t have to imagine that, Kellyanne — because you just described Donald’s Twitter account!
Speaking of which, Trump provided another string of tweets that same morning, barking about he would now refer to his executive order on immigration as a “travel ban” — because he fucking wants to, so deal with it:
Imagine every time they said “President” we said “Ass clown.”
Ch-ch-check out Kellyanne’s exhausting exchange (below)!
