White House Conway tried to defend her boss on ABC’s ‘This Week’ after he tweeted that men’s lives are “being shattered” because their alleged victims are speaking out. It was Donald Trump’s big #HimToo moment.
Conway was asked about U.S. Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand’s (D-NY) tweets in which she wrote that if Trump “wants due process for the over dozen sexual assault allegations against him, let’s have Congressional hearings tomorrow.”
Conway said she didn’t need a lecture from Gillibrand or anybody else. Conway suggested that Trump’s accusers had “their day” when they were “trotted out” on television, then she disparaged Gillibrand because, she said, the Democratic U.S. Senator “defended and harbored a sitting president who had sexual relations in the Oval Office and was impeached for lying. I don’t need a lecture from her or anybody else.”
Responding to @SenGillibrand’s tweet that Congress should hold hearings with women who have accused Pres. Trump of sexual assault, @KellyannePolls tells @GStephanopoulos “Those accusers have had their day…I don’t need a lecture from Kirsten Gillibrand or anybody else.” #ThisWeek pic.twitter.com/iefif4Nh4q

We had no idea that Gillibrand, who was first elected to Congress in 2006 and arrived in Washington in January 2007, was a time traveler. Impeachment proceedings for former President Bill Clinton began on December 19, 1998 – because he lied about getting a blowjob. So, Gillibrand, according to Ms. Alt-Facts, is so powerful that she can go back in time. We’re very impressed.
Also, Conway is saying that Trump’s accusers have had ‘due process’ because they’ve been on television. That, too, is fake news. Words mean things.
