Kellyanne Conway: Biden Has A Big Problem Because Democrats Call His Behavior “Completely Inappropriate”
[guest post by Dana]
And Republicans call Trump’s behavior what, Kellyanne??
This is classic:

So without a hint of irony or self-awareness, Conway admits she admires the courage it would take for a member of the Democrat party to call out one of their own, yet simultaneously ignores the Huge Elephant in the room: that she herself did not call out President Trump, but instead went to work for him. And while Conway smugly claims that Joe Biden has a “big problem” because his party calls his behavior “completely inappropriate,” she also studiously ignores the fact that her own party couldn’t even do that much with regard to Trump. The GOP, which believes that the Party is firmly planted on the moral high ground, didn’t even have the will to call out one of their own. In fact, the Party happily overlooked his inappropriate behavior and made excuses for him, while periodically clucking their tongues in an obligatory shame on you, eventually leading them to look the other way in order to give Trump full support.
As a reminder, here are a few choice statements from our sitting president:
You know and …I moved on her, actually. You know, she was down on Palm Beach. I moved on her, and I failed. I’ll admit it. I did try and f*** her. She was married… I moved on her very heavily. I moved on her like a bitch. But I couldn’t get there. And she was married. Then all of a sudden I see her, she’s now got the big phony tits and everything. She’s totally changed her look.
“I’m automatically attracted to beautiful women — I just start kissing them, it’s like a magnet. Just kiss. I don’t even wait. And when you’re a star, they let you do it. You can do anything,” he said in the 2005 conversation. “Grab ’em by the pussy.”
Anyway, I realize it’s unpopular to make these observations, but Conway’s comments once again bring to light how much the Republican Party shot themselves in the foot when they got behind Trump. This is nothing new, but I think it’s good to be reminded of just how far the GOP was willing to go to see Trump get elected, and as a result, where the party is today. The tone-deaf Conway unwittingly illustrates the long distance traveled, as well as making it clear that sadly, the moral high ground is no longer something that the Republican Party can claim.
