There are some things Kellyanne Conway just can‘t spin her way out of.
See: her in The Washington Post. The paper interviewed Conway, chief counselor to President Donald Trump, as well her husband George Conway, a former Trump supporter turned Trump
Kellyanne being Kellyanne, she complained about her husband‘s tweets to the Post, and then tried to make the whole conversation disappear.
Let‘s just say it didn‘t go as planned.
At one point, after describing her husband‘s anti-Trump tweets as “impolite” and “disrespectful,” Conway tried to suggest the whole conversation was . Reporter Ben Terris refused to let her get away with it:
“Me [Terris]: You told me you found [George’s tweets] disrespectful.
Kellyanne: It is disrespectful, it’s a violation of basic decency, certainly, if not marital vows . . . as “a person familiar with their relationship.”
Me: No, we’re on the record here. You can’t say after the fact “as someone familiar.”
Kellyanne: I told you everything about his tweets was off the record.
Me: No, that’s not true. That never happened.
Kellyanne: Well, people do see it this way. People do see it that way, I don’t say I do, but people see it that way.
Me: But I’m saying we never discussed everything about his tweets being off the record. There are certain things you said that I put off the record.
Kellyanne: Fine. I’ve never actually said what I think about it and I won’t say what I think about it, which tells you what I think about it.”
I‘ll give this to Conway — I‘ve spent minutes, hours even, trying to parse her logic and I‘ve ended up lost in a field. There is no one better than Conway when it comes to delivering absolute falsehoods and then wrangling her way out of it — except this time.
Anyway, the Twitterati stepped in and offered their perspectives on the Conway situation:
Thankfully, this low-brow moment in political history is on the record.
