You have to be of a special type of crazy and quite frankly, a special type of stupid to be associated with Donald Trump. And on Monday, Kellyanne Conway proved once again why she is an adviser to the donald.
In an interview on Monday, Conway defended Trump’s mockery of a disabled reporter during his campaign for president. According to Conway, Hillary Clinton was “given the benefit of the doubt” many times during her campaign but Trump, Conway says, was judge by the things he said rather than the things in his heart.
Conway wants the media to report on Trump’s heart rather of the words that come out of his mouth! Pure insanity!
“She was given the benefit of the doubt here constantly,” Conway said on CNN, referring to Hillary Clinton. “You can’t give him the benefit of the doubt on this? And he’s telling you what was in his heart. You always want to go by what comes out of his mouth rather than look at what’s in his heart.”
Trump’s apparent mocking of a disabled reporter bubbled back to the surface on Sunday when actress Meryl Streep criticized Trump for it during her Golden Globes speech.
“It was that moment when the person asking to sit in the most respected seat in our country imitated a disabled reporter,” she said. “Someone he outranked in privilege, power and the capacity to fight back. It kind of broke my heart when I saw it, and I still can’t get it out of my head, because it wasn’t in a movie. It was real life.”
