Kellyanne Conway gives a master class in obfuscation when asked what Donald Trump is doing to protect the integrity our election system from Russian interference.

Courtesy of Think Progress:

On Friday, CNN’s Alisyn Camerota asked Conway about the Post report. 

“What about this new reporting that there are three dozen high-level officials that say they can connect President Putin with giving instructions to hack the DNC computers and to plant fake stories — what is the current White House doing about this?” Camerota asked. 

Conway responded by asserting that Russian hackers weren’t the only people “interfering in our democracy” last year. 

“Well Alisyn, the president has said previously, and he stands by that — particularly as president-elect — that he would be concerned about anybody interfering in our democracy,” Conway said. “We saw a lot of people interfering with our democracy by saying he couldn’t win here at home.”

Yes, because suggesting that Donald Trump could not win the election, is exactly the same as hacking the election in order to ensure his victory.

Conway also attempted to lay the blame on the DNC in a rather transparent attempt to pivot away from answering the question.

However Camerota persisted: 

“What is the White House, what is President Trump now doing to prevent Russia from doing this again?” she asked.

“This report is new and we’ll discuss it with him later, but he has been very clear on the record that he believes in any type of numbers and measures to make sure that democracy flourishes and that our voter integrity is intact, and in fact he has an entire commission on that,” she said, before Camerota interjected: “Against Russia — what is he doing specifically to try to stop this?” 

Conway replied by smearing CNN and accusing Camerota of having a bad case of Russia hysteria. 

“Alisyn, I realize that we just like to say the word ‘Russia Russia’ to mislead the voters and I know that CNN is aiding and abetting this nonsense as well, but you’ve asked me the same question three times now and I’ve answered it,” she said, still unable to point to anything Trump is doing to prevent future Russian interference.

"This nonsense" by the way is referring to reports from our intelligence agencies and media outlets that Vladimir Putin personally directed the assault on our democracy, and worked to shift the election away from the candidate that he feared to hand victory to the candidate that he knew he could outmaneuver.

As for this report being new, that is only the latest Washington Post report which exposes the fact that Putin personally directed this attack, but we have had many months of reporting on what the Russians did and how they did it, and yet Trump has developed no plan for punishing the Russians for their actions or for preventing them from happening again.

And please keep in mind that the White House is currently working to undermine the new sanctions passed in the Senate to punish Russia for their interference.

That more or less proves, despite Conway's assertions, that Trump has no plan in the works, and no intention to create a plan, to deal with this issue.

And why would he?

After all he was the prime beneficiary of their interference. To him it was a net positive.

    "The White House should have drafted a formal letter. By getting cute, they just opened up Trump to a ton of potential legal trouble as all of his rants on Twitter may soon come back to haunt him."

    "Conway, pivoted to the attack itself and said that the media should be more focused on covering the growth of terrorism in England and Europe over the last several months"

    1. Why do they continue to interview this lying piece of shit?

    Conway is just an immature, prissy little beeyotch along the lines of Palin with the ghastly mug to match. Her tweet, "laughing my #ossoff" after the Georgia race. Who does that? I have yet to see other tweets likewise.

    Before someone calls me a sore loser, NO. Red states will vote red every damned time, as some hope the tide is turning.

    Long gone is the decorum and that I lived in a country that I could be proud of.

      Says the twitter with her feet up under on the couch in the Oval taking a selfie on her phone.

      "Look at me! Look at ME!" They're waiting for "when" to talk to the turd? Video has it that they all take the oath of loyalty every damned day they gather.

      Can you imagine? YES, Donald, there is NO one greater than YOU. Good Lord.

    JHC. why does any news station interview this known liar?
    She won't have an interesting dialogue. All she does is obfuscate and lie.

    I'm ready to move to Fairbanks/Alaska. I love cold weather. I love independence. I love seeing successful, forward-thinking 20 yr olds who choose a good job over wasteful college years/degrees. Drugs in Alaska aren't half as bad as most cities down here.

      huh? That don't impress Palins much, Alicia.

    2. Anonymous10:18 PM

      OMG you must be on drugs yourself and more obvious, you know nothing about this place and have obviously never visited.

      First of all, the opioid epidemic is out of control up here, even worse than the lower 48 because we don't have very many dependence therapy clinics in state and a slim few of those will accept medicaid patients, most are full-ride in-house rehabs upwards of 30 grand per month, and even then most who can afford to pay still have to travel outside for rehab because there just aren't enough beds. The Food Banks are overrun with bedraggled addicts and the ERs are clogged with "seekers", addicts who purposely injure themselves hoping to receive pain meds. There are used needles in the parks and lakes and so many people living in their cars at the big box stores.

      Office of Children's Services is short staffed to begin with and are dealing with record numbers of child removals due to drug addicted parents, and they are having real trouble finding adequate foster care within the state. Seriously, there are unprecedented numbers of families in crisis, most because of drugs or unemployment or a combination of both.

      Also there's the problem of our high unemployment much of it due to the shrinking oil industry that will never regain its previous levels of production with the advent of so much alternative energy and low oil prices not expected to change much in the near future.

      Our budget is still not balanced although state services have been cut to the bone, and our public education system is already ranked 49th out of the 50 states.

      And Fairbanks? Asthma capital of the world as so many still heat with wood because the only other options are heating oil or propane and lots of folks can't afford that up there. There is no piped natural gas service in Fairbanks, and there likely won't be in the near future, and while the cold is nice and refreshing, as is the winter darkness after our long bright summers, it can get costly heating even a newer energy efficient home at -20 F, which is the average January/February temp in FBX. Average electric bill for average 1500 sq ft home with thermostats set at 65 (brrr) is over $1100/month!

      Yes, there is a lot of awesome up here, especially if you spend a lot of time outdoors, but there are a whole lot of negatives as well.

      There is no such thing as a "wasteful college degree", not even for a Palin. Bristol doesn't even live there anymore and doesn't Levi and his wife have a restraining order on you?

    4. Anonymous12:53 AM

      "Wasteful college years/degrees". Just hang on to that idea, sweetheart. Broadcast it loud and wide. The less competition the better for my kids, who are both about to get their Masters degrees, I'm pretty sure they can find better jobs than hawking diet drinks.

    My TV/Cable system went down for about four days and when it was up again and I tuned back in - found I'd missed absolutely nothing! Still the same baloney regurgitating from Trump and Conway's mouths.

    Suggest everyone tune them out - provides peace of mind and lower blood pressure. I'm truly not interested in following either of them anymore. I can keep abreast of news via my local TV station at 5 or 6 p.m. Also, have the local 'daily' newspaper to review with my first cup of coffee each a.m.

    2. Anonymous10:01 PM


      I hear ya! We did this during the Bush years, not that we were fervent television news watchers in the first place, but we only watched Daily Show for all of our news, the entire 8 years.

      We really tuned out, which I and others find ourselves doing during this administration as well. You can really see it in the number of comments on lots of liberal sites that discuss politics, they are way down, because really, what is there to talk about? If anything truly earth-shattering occurs I'm sure that we'll hear about it, until then, it's not worth the aggravation to closely follow every move of this insane joke of an administration.

      I would hardly call her a "poor woman." She's loving every minute of it while you suffer.

    2. Anonymous2:58 AM

      I thought you were referring to her looks.

  10. No. She was asked the question three times and she failed to answer. Instead she misdirected to some other topics and outright lied. She generated her own fake news.

    I don't understand why any news organization legitimizes Kellyanus Conjob by having her on. She lies. Everyone knows she lies. What purpose does it serve to invite her on? You'll never get a straight answer anyway.

    Boycott her. Refuse to interview her. Do NOT give her any air time.

    What the fuck is so hard about this?

    1. I quite agree. She makes her living from interviews on the top stations and in those interviews she spins,pivots and straight out lies. Stop giving her the oxygen of publicity. She'd sink like a stone and we'd all be spared these hair pulling antics of hers.

    Given that Trump has repeatedly said the interference by Russia is fake news he will not do anything because that would make it a fact of reality. Yet he disparaged Obama for doing nothing which is also a lie.

      dRrumpf is claiming that the scandal is real, and it is all Obama’s fault.>

    The insane gull of trumputins. For about 2yrs we have heard and read about the love affair with Russia that "some" people have. Many said "something" to expose it. Trumputins and their fake news spun it. They can plan on years of court hearings, motion after motion, stuck in the united states and under investigation. Treason, Espionage and being a lying ass traitor to America is not good, it is criminal. Americans deserve justice and will demand it.

    Can you imagine being married, sleeping with, spending days and night with a professional LIAR? Everything said is a potential lie. You can never trust a word, a gesture, a action, a motive. It is an empty ugly love, friendship, relationship, existence. Those that live and surround themselves with such emptiness are cold soulless beings living in a sad empty insane world. It is not normal to be a LIAR. It is not normal to distrust or live in a criminal liars world.
