Kellyanne Conway continues to be almost as confusing a speaker as her boss, President Trump.
This was most recently evidenced by a television hit in which she admitted that former FBI director James Comey swung the election for Trump. She did this even as she’s putting Comey on blast per the White House playbook.
Conway’s latest head-scratching moment came on Monday morning during an interview with George Stephanopoulos on Good Morning America. The chat came 24 hours after ABC aired Stephanopoulos’s much-hyped interview with Comey and Conway certainly had something to say about it.
In case you didn’t follow, here’s what Conway said: “This guy swung an election. He thought the wrong person would win, his people in his household wanted the other person to win.”
Huh. So it seems Conway is criticizing Comey for swinging the election for Trump, something that Conway and Trump benefitted from, I guess? It’s really hard to follow, which is nothing new for those who track Conway.
Just for fun, here’s what Comey told Stephanopoulos on Sunday about his decision to announce the FBI was reopening its investigation into Hillary Clinton’s email server use in late October 2016:
“I don’t remember consciously thinking about that, but it must have been because I was operating in a world where Hillary Clinton was going to beat Donald Trump, and so I’m sure that it was a factor. I don’t remember spelling it out, but it had to have been, that she’s going to be elected president and if I hide this from the American people, she’ll be illegitimate the moment she’s elected, the moment this comes out.”
This was just days before the election (a move that many, including Clinton and, now, Conway, think swung the election for Trump).
Remember, too, that when Trump first fired Comey in 2017, one of the White House’s initial defenses of the firing was because of how Comey mishandled the Clinton investigation, though Trump himself would later admit the Russia investigation played a role.
For what its worth, Conway’s husband sure doesn’t think a lot of the White House’s attacks on Comey.
“The hype around Comey’s book and the RNC’s attempts to discredit it both proceed from the same false premise: that James Comey has something important to reveal about Donald Trump that Donald Trump has not already revealed about himself.” https://t.co/gHGsE6JQOh

Anyway, this all continues to be a terribly confusing mess in a heap of confusing messes which just goes to show that time is a flat circle, nothing changes, and we are all going to die one day anyway.
