As #Donald Trump keeps his supporters focused on "lock her up" chants, he fails to mention his upcoming scheduled days in court. Later this month, the self-crown champion of the people will stand trial in a fraud lawsuit filed against Trump University. Next month, he will be in court defending himself against a woman who claims he raped her when she was just 13-years-old. To hear his campaign manager Kellyanne Conway tell it, fans can forget ever watching a "The Apprentice: Behind Bars" reality TV series.
Nothing to see here, folks.
In a recent CNBC interview, host Andrew Ross Sorkin was in no mood for deflection and forced the Trump whisperer to address the rape allegations. Conway did what she normally does. She dismissed the topic as insignificant and quickly pivoted to Clinton's emails. Seriously? Conway stretched her gift further by accusing the Clinton campaign of being sneaky in asking the FBI to release more information regarding Huma Abedin's computer. In her opinion, the campaign is trying to politicize the FBI and should just ask Huma or her estranged husband Anthony Weiner what's on the computer hard drive. Conway even went as far as to say it was dangerous for someone who wants to be president of the United States to encourage people to boo. Again, seriously?
The insulting of our intelligence has got to stop
In light of recent events, Conway pointed out that this will be Clinton's second FBI investigation. She then attempts to question who is really the one who is unqualified and unfit to be president? She asks who has shown their national security information and who has shown it is always about her and her petty political self? Time to insert a few questions here.
As for national security, who was the one who asked a hostile country to find a U.S. official's deleted emails? Who was the one who showed a willingness to reveal what they saw on a top-secret video, even if they were incorrect about what they saw? And who is the well-documented narcissist who demands the heads of those who will not bow down? Is everyone in projection-denial hell over there?
Rape and Racketeering are no small matters, either
Although the details have been squashed and the term changed, Trump's first wife Ivanka had once accused him of rape. When CNBC host Andrew Sorkin pressed the issue, Conway gave an exacerbated gasp and replied, "Give me a break" before suggesting Sorkin would soon ask about Trump's taxes. Conway continued with her talent for deflection by tossing out some word salad consisting of Anthony Weiner's sexting photos of himself to a 15-year-old girl. As horrendous as sexting to minors is, does Conway really believe that that act is more deplorable than rape? Yes, will someone please make America great again before we all get fitted for straight-jackets? #Election 2016 #Trump University Trial
