Donald Trump and his administration have been celebrating and announcing that the president has been exonerated by Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report — even though he hasn’t. There is literally a quote in Mueller’s report that says, “While this report does not conclude that the president committed a crime, it also does not exonerate him.” But then again, the Trump administration is desperate to make Trump look good and it’s going to eventually backfire.
This is already blowing up in the Trump administration’s face as the president’s minions speak to reporters. In an interview with reporters earlier this morning, White House Counselor Kellyanne Conway screwed up in a big way by stating that House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA) should resign for his collusion comments about Trump because he “lied.”
We don’t know why Conway thought it was a good idea to go there, because it seems that in making an argument that lying should be a prerequisite to resignation, Trump should have been gone a LONG time ago! Conway said of Schiff:
Let a lie fly for two years. Literally going out, not under oath and saying day after day, moment after moment, full of vim and vigor snark and bark that there’s a mountain of evidence of collusion against the President that may actually be bigger than Watergate.”
Not really a smart move, considering Trump’s lies have been heavily documented. In fact, it’s been found that Trump lied an average of 15 times per day last year. In 2019, the president has bumped that up to 22 false claims per day.
Rep. Schiff didn’t actually lie — but Trump and his White House have been proven to lie pathologically about everything they can. We fully agree with you, Kellyanne: Anyone in power should resign for lying. Let’s start with the president!
