Oh God, Kellyanne Conway Is Never Going Away, Will Lie To And For Trump Forever
If you want a vision of the future, imagine a Conway, lying to your face -- FOREVER
The Trump transition team announced today that horrible human being Kellyanne Conway will continue to serve the Master as a "counselor" to Donald Trump once he takes office, which will mostly consist of saying "Yes, Mr. Trump, that's an excellent idea" and then going on TV to deny he ever mentioned that idea and the media are the real liars. Trump Himself issued a statement indicating that whoever wrote it for him wants us to know he's just over the moon with the choice:
"Kellyanne Conway has been a trusted advisor and strategist who played a crucial role in my victory. She is a tireless and tenacious advocate of my agenda and has amazing insights on how to effectively communicate our message. I am pleased that she will be part of my senior team in the West Wing,"
Such a great feminist, that Kellyanne Conway!
“I do politely mention to them the question isn’t would you take the job, the male sitting across from me who’s going to take a big job in the White House. The question is would you want your wife to,” Conway said, describing conversations she’s had with male colleagues. “Would you want the mother of [your] children to? You really see their entire visage change. It’s like, oh, no, they wouldn’t want their wife to take that job.”
Looks like she got a note from her husband giving her permission to be away from her beloved kiddies, making her an exceptional human being who's willing to sacrifice for the good of the nation and so much better than all the other women who work for less noble reasons. Look, Donald Trump needs her. He's surrounded by yes-men, and that's not good. He needed a yes-woman too.
The Trump transition team, classy as ever, used the occasion of announcing Conway's appointment to take one more jab at that loser Hillary Clinton, pointing out that since Conway was the first woman to manage a winning presidential campaign, Team Trump had "shattered the glass ceiling for women." Get it? GET IT? We could add that the Trump campaign never showed any visible sign of being "managed," but there really is no such job title as "person in charge of random careening," so we'll leave it alone.
As for her history-making achievement in being a successful mother with children who works in the West Wing, Politico notes, with what almost feels like understated sarcasm, that after Conway spoke at their conference about how hard that would be, Valerie Jarrett, who is a woman and works as senior advisor to President Obama,
said she had privately urged Conway to work in the White House, citing the examples of many current West Wing mothers raising young children as evidence that it can be done.
We believe in you, Kellyanne Conway. You can be a mommy and a full-time professional liar at the same time!
