Shorter Kellyanne Conway: "Trump Doesn't Speak for His Administration."

Criticism directed at President Donald Trump over his flurry of Twitter activity related to the London terrorist attack over the weekend is misguided, counselor to the president Kellyanne Conway said Monday morning, the result of a press that she suggested is eagerly critical of Trump even amid more pressing situations.

The media, Conway said, has “this obsession with covering everything he says on Twitter and very little of what he does as president.” Conway blamed that obsession for the uproar that began over the weekend when Trump hurled a political attack across the Atlantic, writing online that there had been “at least 7 dead and 48 wounded in terror attack and Mayor of London says there is ‘no reason to be alarmed!’"
Trump is the fucking President and what he says matters. What any president says matters.

So what Conway is, in essence, claiming, is that Trump doesn't speak for his own administration. Or that he's insane, for why otherwise would he attack his own administration for defending his own policies or criticize executive orders that he issued?

It looks more and more like the stereotypical dysfunctional family on a television comedy show. Sad thing is, this is real life and real people get hurt by these clowns.

AAAnd this whole post is an example of VERY twisted logic. Teh title is misleading, if not a lie, and the rest is .....I'm not sure of a word to describe it....

There is so much you could deride Trump for....You don't have to make up things and twist logic and words.

Don't know whether he speaks for his administration or not, but when he says “at least 7 dead and 48 wounded in terror attack and Mayor of London says there is ‘no reason to be alarmed!’" he speaks for this Londoner.

Frank C: But the mayor of London didn't say ‘no reason to be alarmed!’ about that terrorism, he said that about the fact that Londoners are going to see a lot more police on the streets, that they shouldn't be alarmed at seeing the extra police.

Of course, our gold-plated turkey of a president* shot off his mouth in the most callous and misinformed way...in his usual fashion. If he's anything, it's a world-class jerk making America look stupid...again.

B., once again I ask for you to provide a concrete example of your allegation. Comrade's summary title appears cogent and accurate to me.

It would be nice if he were prosecuted for deleting Presidential records. Lots of proof of that.

This president is an embarrassment to the country. His ill timed criticism of the London mayor is typical of someone who cannot control himself. It started back in May when during an interview on Good Morning Britain the host informed Trump that the mayor called him ignorant. Trump's response, "Let's do an IQ test." And now, after the London tragedy, the clown quotes the mayor out of context. What does this accomplish other than making the president feel he gets the last word in. So childish. I would expect something like that from my 8 year old grandson. On second thought, I think my grandson would have more compassion for the feelings of others than Trump.
