Kellyanne Conway’s irritating “big-girl” voice was heard on CNN this morning, reciting a typical Republican litany of blame, deflection and denial surrounding the massacre in Las Vegas and the GOP’s complete subservience to the NRA.
Though she was given her CNN media moment to talk about the carnage in Las Vegas, Conway whined about Hillary Clinton, Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren, and… of course… whined that media is spending too much time investigating Trump’s treasonous collusion with Russia.
Conway said, “We did a quick search… and so if you go and do a comparable search you will see that this conversation isn’t being had until tragedies like this strike by those who try to be the loudest voices. You see Hillary Clinton is out on a book tour talking about herself, not talking about this. You see her rushing to judgment on Twitter the other day while people are still looking through the rubble, searching through the hospitals for the missing love ones. She’s tweeted about guns exactly one time this year. Bernie Sanders zero times. Elizabeth Warren zero times. They have tweeted about Russia over 30 times. Sanders and Warren… to approximate CNN’s own coverage. Your obsession with Russia has been to the exclusion of this conversation. So I know the, “High Horse Calvary” loves to run and thumping their chest after the tragedies, but let’s step back and have a thoughtful conversation about everything that is at play here. The more information all of us can learn about what happened in Las Vegas the better.”
CNN’s Chris Cuomo wasn’t having it. He said, “Kellyanne, I’m tired, so I apologize in advance… but I have to tell you, a lot of this just doesn’t wash.
Though Conway tried to interrupt, Cuomo persisted, “What you need to know about the bump stock is that It was legal and that’s what allowed him to lay down that field of fire. There’s no ‘thoughtful conversation’ to have about it. Of course it was 2010 of course it was the Obama administration. Kellyanne, don’t cheapen what happened in Las Vegas the people..
Conway tried to interrupt, saying, “No no no no no don’t go there….”
Cuomo said, “No, I’m going to ‘go there,’ my friend, and here’s why. When Bob Patterson came out last night with his daughter his 16-year-old daughter who lost her mother, lost his wife… you know, what he wants to know the same thing that people say time and time again why was this able…”
Of course Kelly and try to interrupt again…
Cuomo continued, “…and I said let’s have a conversation no but the president says, ‘not now’ and then it never happens. You make the point yourself, whether you want to put it on Sanders or any other Democrat …they don’t talk about it except when it happens, yeah. That’s right. Because when it happens there’s an acute need and there’s focus, and when you say we don’t want to talk about it it now you’re ignoring the urgency and hoping it goes away.”
So, to summarize… Republicans don’t want to talk about gun control now because it’s “too soon” and being “too soon,” it’s not respectful to the victims’ families who are looking for loved ones in the hospital… but Hillary Clinton didn’t talk about for a long time before… so, even though the NRA spent 12 million dollars attacking Hillary Clinton and donated $21 million to Trump during the campaign, Democrats are to blame for nothing being done about gun control… but don’t bring up gun control now because it’s “too soon,” and you’re too focused on Trump’s treasonous collusion with Russia, and that’s also why there’s no gun control. Meanwhile, the United States continues to be the only developed nation regularly experiencing random gun massacres.
Unlike the fully-functional, emotionally mature adults that normal Americans might hope to represent them in the halls of power – but just like their 71-year-old toddler so-called President – Republicans fall back on their old standby… namely, “I know you are, but what am I?,” to divert attention from their amorality. This time, to distract from their evil collusion with blood-soaked NRA paymasters.
