George Conway Appears to Rebuke Kellyanne Conway for ‘Gaslighting’ That Vindman Wasn’t Fired



“To suggest anything else happened here is pure gaslighting.”

Kellyanne Conway is trying to smooth over President Donald Trump’s firing of Lt. Colonel Alexander Vindman and his brother, Lt. Col. Yevgeny Vindman, from the National Security Council, by claiming they were not fired at all.

Her husband, prominent conservative attorney George Conway, isn’t having it, appearing to call her remarks “gaslighting.”

The Senior Counselor to the President told “Fox & Friends” Monday morning it’s “typical” for someone from the NSC to be reassigned. She did not mention his brother was as well, nor did she note they were escorted out of the building like criminals.

“Fox & Friends” co-Host Steve Doocy agreed with Kellyanne Conway’s take, after kicking off the segment by saying the Vindmans had been fired.

“They didn’t get fired, they just got relocated,” Doocy offered.

“This is very typical in a White House to have a detailee [sic] for a temporary period of time who then returns to what their full-time job is,” she added, which is inaccurate. Conway is attempting to say that Vindman was only working at the NSC part-time, which is false.

Although he did not mention her by name, on Twitter, George Conway weighed in, in what appears to be a direct attack on Kellyanne Conway’s Fox News remarks.

Here’s Kellyanne Conway on “Fox & Friends” – the relevant portion starts around the 6:45 minute mark:

If Democrats Don’t Pass Voting Rights They’ll Lose in 2022 and Biden Will Be Impeached: Prof. Jason Johnson



Dr. Jason Johnson, professor at Morgan State University, dropped a truth-bomb on Democrats during his appearance with MSNBC host Nicolle Wallace on Tuesday. According to him, there is no other bill than voting rights, because, without it, the GOP voter suppression laws will ensure Democrats lose.

While the panel debated the importance of the voting rights bill and whether Democrats will fight for it, Johnson explained that it’s the only issue that Democrats should focus on.

“These changes are the main legislative issue,” Bulwark columnist Tim Miller explained. “It’s what the Koch Brothers and others are pushing in a lot of these state legislatures. Something has to be done. Here’s my issue from a strategic standpoint, though. The best thing that the Democrats can do to guarantee the next election isn’t stolen, is to do well in 2022.”

He went on to argue that Democrats should push something popular that everyone can get behind and that they’d win in 2022 as a result of that. But Johnson, shaking his head, disagreed.

“Tim! Everybody already knows what the Republicans are!” said Johnson. “They literally led a march to the Capitol, and not the Civil Rights kind, like, a couple of months ago. Everybody knows what the Republican Party is there’s nothing in exposing them anymore. And quite frankly, if they don’t make this the number one priority you can’t wait until the 2022 elections. Because if these laws stay on the books in 2022, Democrats will lose the House and the Senate and they will impeach Joe Biden in February of 2023. I promise you! That’s what the Republicans will do!”

‘It Makes Us Look Like Idiots’: Arizona Republican Admits He Was Wrong to Support ‘Ridiculous’ Vote Audit



A Republican state senator from Arizona is now admitting it was a mistake to back Trump supporters’ so-called “vote audit” that has devolved into a total circus.

In an interview with the New York Times, Arizona State Sen. Paul Boyer said that he was embarrassed to have ever supported the audit.

“It makes us look like idiots,” he told the Times. “Looking back, I didn’t think it would be this ridiculous. It’s embarrassing to be a state senator at this point.”

The Arizona audit, which is taking place with Trump’s enthusiastic support, is being conducted by partisan operatives, including one man who participated in the January 6th MAGA riots at the United States Capitol building.

The audit has drawn widespread ridicule, even from many Republicans, after it was revealed that auditors are searching for traces of bamboo in the ballots, which they claim would be evidence of Chinese tampering in the 2020 election.

Laura Ingraham Attacks Dems for ‘Preferring’ Undocumented Immigrants to ‘Anyone Who Voted for Trump’ – It Doesn’t End Well



“I’ll take the folks who believe in the American dream.”

Laura Ingraham tried to attack Democrats Tuesday night in yet another Fox News segment on the “crisis” at America’s southern border, insisting that it’s “just a fact” that Democratic voters “prefer” undocumented immigrants “to anyone who ever voted for Trump.”

It did not end well for her or for the MAGA crowd.

Fox News and some of the more mainstream news media have been harping on the influx of undocumented immigrants seeking asylum, especially unaccompanied children, but a Washington Post study reveals it is mostly just a “predictable seasonal shift.”

Ingraham, meanwhile, has defended a white supremacist, said immigrants destroy “the America we love,” and announced she was “sickened” that President Joe Biden called out racism in America.

Responding to a clip on social media of Ingraham thinking her attack on Democrats was quite the “dig,” Democrats explained why she is correct.
