Donald Trump is Awful, but One of His Closest Advisers Might Even be Worse (Video)

Most of us know that Donald Trump is an absolutely horrific human being and an embarrassment to this country. That being said, an argument could easily be made that his former campaign manager, and now top advisor, Kellyanne Conway is just as bad – if not worse – than the incompetent menace.

After all, what’s worse:

  • A vile, deplorable human being who doesn’t believe they’re a terrible person? — or — 
  • The person who knows someone is a vile, deplorable human being, but supports them anyway because that’s what’s in their best interests?

But you don’t have to trust me that she’s a soulless parasite who lacks even a shred of dignity, let’s just look at a few comments Conway said about Donald Trump before she started taking his money to speak highly of him:

I think that’s actually something that could hurt Trump in South Carolina and beyond if people start to see that he’s not — he says he’s for the little guy, but he’s actually built a lot of his businesses on the backs of the little guy and he’s a lot of little guys through eminent domain, or through not paying contractors after you’ve built something. The little guys have suffered.

For Trump, the debates are fraught with peril. Because now the question is going to be about these Trump victims. The reason the messaging has gotten better since Alex’s barnburner of an article two weeks ago is they’re starting to talk about victims of Trump University, victims of Trump in Atlantic City. Before that it was his conservative apostasies, now it’s actually you’re for the little guy but you’ve built your business on the backs of the little guy.

It’s completely transparent. Donald Trump’s tax returns aren’t, I would like to see those be transparent.

I think instead of worrying about them and insulting them as ‘lying Ted’ and John Kasich ‘who eats like this slob’ and everything else that was said today, which is fairly unpresidential.

I think people will think thrice now when they go into that ballot box and say, “Look, I tried to send a message all along to Donald Trump, to the establishment, but now I got to get serious about sending somebody to the White House.”

But it is quite another to accuse Ted Cruz himself and professionals who have been at this long as you have, Ed, practically, of committing a felony and breaking a law. We could just brush it off, but it shows you the danger of just saying things that aren’t true and getting people to believe it and getting 20,000 people at a rally today to just lap it up as if it’s true.

Anderson Cooper in this town hall in Wisconsin. He was tough but never rude. I mean, if you want to be Commander-in-Chief and president of the United States, president of the free world, you’re going to be asked tough questions.

She’s also bashed Trump for being vague when he was asked about policy specifics, called out Roger Stone (Trump’s close ally) for trying to intimidate critics by publishing personal information, criticized him for saying he would “punish” women who got abortions, and even made a point to emphasize the billions in “free media coverage” Trump received during his campaign.

Yet, here she is, now defending Trump for many of the very same things she absolutely crushed him for when she was on the Ted Cruz bandwagon.

Everything from calling out Trump’s shady refusal to not release his tax returns, to the absolute scam that was “Trump U,” all the way to calling out the fact that Trump lies by just saying whatever the hell he feels like — these are quotes taken directly from Conway.

As I’ve said before, there’s a big difference between normal political insults thrown out during a primary battle and the sort of specific, personal attacks like we’ve seen many of Trump’s opponents say about him at one time or another. The things Conway said about Trump during the primary weren’t exaggerated political rhetoric — they were direct attacks based upon exactly who he is.

Nevertheless, even though she said all of the same things many liberals have said about Donald Trump since the beginning, she has no problem going on interview after interview, shoveling pile after pile of Trump’s bullshit.

Is Donald Trump a despicable person? Absolutely.

But if you ask me, Kellyanne Conway might even be more of a lowlife than our next president.

I don’t believe Donald Trump truly realizes what an absolute scumbag he is. However, Ms. Conway obviously does — yet has no problem selling his propaganda, peddling his lies, and supporting his overwhelming incompetence, just as long as she’s being paid enough to do so.
