Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump’s campaign manager, Kellyanne Conway, was a guest on MSNBC’s Morning Joe, and she shamelessly attempted to change the narrative about Trump and the various lies he has told throughout his campaign.
While on the program Mark Halperin said to Conway:
He made a factual claim about the moderator, who deserves to be treated fairly, and it was just wrong. And it’s a metaphor for his frequently, in public, stating things with no basis.
Conway attempted to distract from the issue by making the conversation about Matt Lauer, and treatment which he received at the hands of angry Clinton supporters who did not agree with his questions about her email scandal:
I think it’s a terrible and irrelevant example, and here’s why: We were appalled at the treatment of NBC News’s Matt Lauer after the Commander-in-Chief Forum.
Halperin did not take Conway’s bait and kept hammering away at her chincy argument:
That’s not what I’m asking you. I’m asking you how someone who’s running for president can assert, on the eve of the debate, that the moderator is a Democrat, which is factually incorrect. How can he do that?
Conway again deflected. It was clear she had no intention on actually answering tough questions about her boss’s positions and that she was merely there to spew as many talking points as possible. Conway’s goal was achieved, as she was on national TV, and she sought to distract, rather than inform. Was she successful? She will find out tomorrow night.
