The Jury Talks Back

Kellyanne Conway: My Husband Is a Big Jerk. That’s Off the Record, Isn’t It?

George Conway married Kellyanne Conway. He’s made up for that lack of judgment by bagging on Trump every chance he gets, on Twitter and elsewhere. Now, the Washington Post has a profile of the couple — and Kellyanne tried to sneak in some criticism of her husband while pretending to be someone else. Problem was, she forgot to make sure she was off the record first:

Me: You told me you found [George’s tweets] disrespectful.

Kellyanne: It is disrespectful, it’s a violation of basic decency, certainly, if not marital vows . . . as “a person familiar with their relationship.”

Me: No, we’re on the record here. You can’t say after the fact “as someone familiar.”

Kellyanne: I told you everything about his tweets was off the record.

Me: No, that’s not true. That never happened.

Kellyanne: Well, people do see it this way. People do see it that way, I don’t say I do, but people see it that way.

LOL. This is the sort of soulless ghoul it takes to defend a man with the low character of Donald Trump. Thanks to the #FAKENEWSBEZOSPOST for the laugh of the day.

P.S. Jonah Goldberg tweets:

Jonah’s “Suicide of the West” is a good read that I’ll review here soon. I’m increasingly contemptuous of people who defend Donald Trump’s character, and have come to conclude that if you defend his character, you are almost certainly a person of low character yourself. Those who defend his character keep proving me right, day in and day out.
