Pointing out that Trump encouraged his rally crowd to target ABC reporter Martha Raddatz over false claims that she cried the night he was elected, Conway tried to insist that everyone on Trump’s team has “enormous respect” for Raddatz, whom they all agree is a “tour de force.”
Maddow reminded Conway that “telling a story about her that is not true” to crowds of thousands throughout the United States is hardly indicative of “enormous respect” and asked if Raddatz could expect an apology sometime soon. Conway insisted those types of conversations don’t happen in public.
“The accusation was made publicly,” Maddow pressed.
Conway quickly changed the topic, instead discussing Trump’s “relationship with the press” and the “negative press coverage” she says marred his campaign.
Later in the interview Conway defended Melania's hiring of the same lawyer that drove Gawker out of business to go after the Daily Mail and a blogger who insinuated that she had once worked as an escort.
Conway's defense of that is that the damage had already been done so even though there was an apology as well as a retraction of the story it was too late.
When Rachel asked if this lawsuit might continue even after Melania becomes first lady, Conway said that it might.
When Rachel mentioned that this was unheard of for first families, Conway suggested that the Trump's had been under attack by the media in ways that no other presidential family had been forced to endure, “It’s just different for the Trumps."
At this point I literally jumped up out of my seat and yelled at the TV for Maddow to remind this peroxide little bitch, that her boss had risen to national attention by claiming that the sitting President of the United States was not born in this country.
Despite my yelling Rachel did not do that, nor did she mention the number of times that Carson herself had claimed that Hillary Clinton was a criminal and about to be indicted during the campaign.
Nor about that time her boss claimed that Ted Cruz's dad had something to do with the assassination of JFK.
(Though much earlier in the interview she did confront her about Trump's National Security Advisor Gen. Flynn had tweeted that Hillary Clinton was part of that fake Pizzagate scandal, and therefore a child rapist.)
We talk about the death of irony with the election of this orange tinted buffoon, but this interview drove that point home like a stake through the heart.
But even more chilling is that it reveals that not only does this evil administration expect to never be held accountable for their lies and misstatements, but that if any news outlet or blogger reports negatively about them they risk being sued into non-existence.
This is not a presidential administration, this is an authoritarian dictatorship where dissension will not be tolerated, and critics must fear for their livelihoods, if not their very lives.
