Conway should just stay offline for a while.

Donald Trump’s administration isn’t good at many things, but one thing they excel at is making themselves look like complete and utter morons.

While the president has been working overtime to further tarnish his presidency, his White House counselor Kellyanne Conway also made a major misstep this week when she celebrated the indictment of a former White House staffer for President Barack Obama — after repeatedly stating that Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation was a “witch hunt.”

Gregory Craig, an ex-Obama White House counsel, was indicted yesterday for hiding info regarding private sector work he was doing for Ukraine officials and making false statements to the Justice Department’s Foreign Agents Registration Act (FARA) Unit, which was part of the Mueller probe investigation. Without even thinking twice, Conway went on Twitter to rejoice over the news:



The crimes for which Craig was indicted took place in 2012, two years after he had been ejected from Obama’s White House.

And apparently, Conway forgot that President Donald Trump’s former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn had already been indicted and pleaded guilty to lying to investigators. People were quick to point this fact out, as well as fire back at Conway for being a complete hypocrite when it comes to Mueller’s “witch hunt.”

Conway also doesn’t seem to care that these charges against Craig are in no way related to Obama or Craig’s time in the Obama administration, but rather validate the charges against Trump’s former campaign manager Paul Manafort, with whom Craig was working long after being fired by the Obama administration.

Of course, when Mueller is going after Trump and his administration, Mueller’s probe is a witch hunt but when the Special Counsel indicts someone else it’s all of a sudden a valid investigation. It is so typical for someone in Trump’s team to react like this and not even realize how stupid it makes them look.
