    On Meet the Press this morning, Chuck Todd called out Kellyanne Conway on President Trump's and Sean Spicer's outright lies on Saturday regarding the size of the inauguration crowds. Ms Conway, true to form, pushed back on Todd's assertion saying that Trump has "alternative facts". Todd called her alternative facts just plain lies. I only saw a short clip of it on Joy Reid's show, but will look for the discussion on Meet the Press later.

    Kelleyanne Conway gets under my skin the way she lies and twists the narrative on any issue of the day. Her boss, Donald Trump is never, never wrong.

    Kellyanne Conway is a robot.

    Here is the full Meet the Press interview compliments of Crooks and Liars:

    "During an interview on Meet the Press, Chuck Todd asked Conway why Spicer felt the need to berate the press over the weekend for accurately reporting that Trump's crowd sizes were dwarfed by the attendance at President Barack Obama's 2008 inauguration.

    "Don't be so overly dramatic about it, Chuck," Conway scoffed. "They're saying it's a falsehood and our press secretary, Sean Spicer, gave alternative facts to that."

    "Wait a minute," Todd interrupted. "Alternative facts! Four of the five facts that he uttered were just not true. Alternative facts are not facts, they're falsehoods."

    Conway tried to deflect, but the host pressed on: "You sent the press secretary out there to utter a falsehood on the smallest, pettiest thing. And I don't understand why you did it."

    "I don't think you can prove those numbers one way or the other," the Trump aide opined. "You can laugh at me all you want. You are, and I think it's actually symbolic of the way we're treated by the press. I'll just ignore it. I'm bigger than that. I'm a kind and gracious person."

    All I can say is sheesh. I still struggle for words when my blood pressure rises.

    Roy Cohn lives on. The sobering danger is that flushing out a liar that has charisma has the potential of building superpower for the liar. He has majority in both houses that will support him. Where we are now that things have gone this far is really sobering and dangerous. Is there a solution? There has been so much denial that it has been unfair.

    I hate to say this; it is the 1930's all over again; it looks exactly like Hitlers propaganda machine with also the same characters, like Himmler, Goering etc.

    I watched her as well. She is useless in my eyes. Distract, distort, and deliver his message of partial reality and misinformation. One day the fools will awaken.

    We are sadly entering a "post truth" America. That's a very dangerous thing.

    Huffington Post: After Promising To Release His Tax Returns, Trump Aide Says He Won’t Because ‘People Didn’t Care’

    “He’s not going to release his tax returns. We litigated this all through the election. People didn’t care,” White House advisor Kellyanne Conway said on ABC, two days after Trump took the oath of office.

    "She was answering a question about a White House petition for Trump to release his tax returns that had received over 200,000 signatures, a total that necessitates a White House response. An ABC poll from Jan. 12-15 found that 74 percent of the public wanted Trump to release his returns."

    So there you have it folks. Straight from Kellyanne Conway's mouth. Trump will never release his tax returns because "people don't care"...at least 26 percent of Americans don't care, the base of supporters. Kellyanne is getting tired of the dishonest media attacking President Trump over this.

    I guess this qualifies as more "alternative facts".

    Schmidt, this shows exactly what I said many times: What does he have to hide?????? Why was this guy not "vetted" in the first place. If I would do the same thing I would be in jail. Totally unbelievable!!! Does this country not have any "rules" for the "fake" rich????? Or is the guy only in "debt" and is ashamed to show that??? Today (this morning) an lawsuit will be started in New York about his conflicts of interests. I'm afraid this may end up as well as an "lead" balloon, because the Trump "mafia" has taken over. When are they finally going to find out that the guy only consists of lies and corruption??? Sorry; and America still thinks they are number one in the world? Yes they are number one in "stupidity" electing people without solid "screening". Absolutely unbelievable!!

    The Sheriff's of Nottingham are on duty in Trump's elite unit. I think it is safe to say they are more in line with Life's Not Fair Get Used Gates than they are with Penalty Tax Derivatives Sanders. The elite unit has no time or use for process or fairness.

    Why is the DNC silent about Trump's Cabinet. What possible reason can be keeping them silent? I dont think I have missed anything. Are they afraid of getting involved with negative rhetoric about billionaires?

    I'm confused. The DNC has been releasing official statements left and right about Trump's cabinet. They just released one mere seconds ago lambasting Rubio for supporting Rex Tillerson.

    "By ignoring his serious reservations about Tillerson's connections to Vladimir Putin, Marco Rubio is not only rolling over for Donald Trump, he's earning the nickname Trump gave him: Little Marco," DNC spokesman Zac Petkanas said in a statement.

    The DNC is shell shocked and pretty close to useless. Absolutely no real leadership and no new ideas. Like I said previously, what they're good at is losing and sadly they don't get to fail again for a while. Be patient, they will let us down as soon as possible.

    Elizabeth Warren will say something snarky on Twitter in a few days and it will be posted on Facebook. Anymore, that's as good as it gets.

    The big news today is that Kellyanne Conway is leaving the White House. At the same time, her husband George is leaving the Lincoln Project. Both of them have said they are leaving to focus on their family, but the real issue is their 15 year old daughter Claudia, who is very much anti-Trump.

    https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/politics/claudia-conway-daughter-of-kellyanne-and-george-conway-returned-to-twitter-with-a-bang-encouraging-her-followers-to-vote-and-asking-aoc-to-adopt-her/ar-BB17m0AR

    George and Kellyanne have been married for nearly 20 years, and their differing political positions have undoubtedly caused some issues in their marriage.

    George Clooney is actually a very smart guy. He graduated magna cum laude from Harvard, and later became editor of the Yale Law Review. He then went on to a successful legal career, and it was reported that he would be nominated to run the United States Department of Justice Civil Division.

    Early in his life, he was a staunch conservative (at Yale, he was president of the school's Federalist Society) but "got religion" when James Comey was fired. He actually dated Laura Ingraham, who later introduced him to Kellyann, who he married in 2001.

    On November 16, 2018, Conway stated that a reason he did not join the Trump Administration was because it is "like a shitshow in a dumpster fire". At about the same time, Conway organized a group called Checks and Balances. The group was composed of more than a dozen members of the conservative-libertarian Federalist Society, which had been instrumental in selecting candidates for the Trump administration to appoint to federal courts. The New York Times reported that the group was "urging their fellow conservatives to speak up about what they say are the Trump administration’s betrayals of bedrock legal norms".

    Conway is a founding member and advisor of the Lincoln Project, a conservative Super PAC formed in December 2019 and dedicated to “Defeat President Trump and Trumpism at the ballot box”. ts detailed aim is "persuading enough disaffected conservatives, Republicans and Republican-leaning independents in swing states and districts to help ensure a victory in the Electoral College, and congressional majorities that don’t enable or abet Mr. Trump’s violations of the Constitution". The group released its first video on January 9, 2020; called "The MAGA Church"; it warns evangelicals to beware of false prophets. On August 23, 2020, he announced that he would be taking a leave from the Lincoln Project in order to devote more time to his family

    All of this shows how "totally unbalanced" this country is. As long as the "system" and the "thinking" here stays that way with only an "two" party system, who fight each other and on top of that "religion" here which shows its ugly face, then the brew will taste like shit and this country will remain totally un-manageable.

    If Biden wants to "clean up" this mess he will be met with so many roadblocks, which will hamper to solve anything to make his reign an success. Sorry people as long as the "brains" here are not organized and the "deplorables" stay the deplorables then forget this country; the "rich" will run it and ruin it. Just like Melania's rose garden.
