Throughout history, presidents have always been judged by their words and by their actions, but that is about to change.
Enter president-elect donald trump, who should be judged not by what he says or what he does, but by what’s in his heart, according to his consigliere, Kellyanne Conway.
In the wake of trump predictably being unable to resist a famous person criticizing him, Conway appeared on CNN to complain, “Why is everything taken at face value? You can’t give him the benefit of the doubt on this and he’s telling you what was in his heart, you always want to go with what’s come out of his mouth rather than look at what’s in his heart.”
Conway was referring to trump’s claim that he never made fun of a disabled reporter, after video clearly showed trump mocking the physical characteristics of Serge F. Kovaleski. Trump’s mockery of Kovaleski was made a feature of Hillary Clinton’s anti-trump advertisements, but such mockery didn’t seem to bother 60+ million voters.
But, that has to take a back seat to the nonsense Conway was trying to convince CNN’s Chris Cuomo of, where we learned that the president who “tells it like it is” doesn’t want his tellin’-it to be taken at face value.
Meanwhile, in news that doesn’t matter…
CNN’s top entertainment story, after coverage of Meryl Streep’s trump-targeted speech, was about the fact that Kristen Bell wore butt pads under her Golden Globes dress.
