"At which point, [Kellyanne] Conway accused Clinton’s team of being sore losers.Kellyanne Conway has a gift for talking quickly around any subject with total confidence. She could talk herself out of being arrested even when a cop caught her red handed robbing a bank. And this is just one example of her brazenness. [There's video at the link above.]
“Guys, I can tell you are angry, but wow,” she said. 'Hashtag he’s your president. How’s that? Will you ever accept the election results? Will you tell your protesters that he’s their president too?'”
She's been Trump's spokesperson. Trump. The guy who spent several years denying that Obama was a US citizen thus he couldn't be the president of the US. He knew it was total fabrication. It was a power game for Trump. Like a three year old having a tantrum to get everyone to pay attention.
Given that context, his spokesperson has the nerve to complain that Clinton folks, whose candidate has over 2 million more votes than Trump, and want a recount in some key states like Wisconsin where Trump won by only 10,000 votes, protesteth too much?
But she goes by the Trump playbook - Attack, Counterattack, Never Apologize.
I'm guessing that many of the Trump supporters know she's all bluff, but they take great pleasure when the highly educated Democratic spokespeople don't know how to respond to this outrageousness.
"Hashtag he's your president." Really? We're in Twitterspeak? Would would George Orwell say?
They were taught in school to be rational, factual, and debate a logical argument. They - I probably should say 'we' - have trouble debating total nonsense.
This is like when Mao gave kids the power to humiliate and beat their teachers and parents. Facts and science had lost all their power. The Communist Party line became truth.
This is the humiliation all people of reason and civility face when ruthless power takes over and all logic, law, decency fall by the wayside. Truth is what power says it is.
It's going to get worse before it gets better. Trump doesn't see the law as a barrier. He simply does what he wants and then if he gets caught, asks, "how much do I need to pay to make you go away?"
This is going to get uglier. I suspect that the people Trump is lining up for his cabinet are not used to following orders from a grade school bully. If Mitt Romney thinks that he can help steady the course working from the inside, he's in for a big surprise. But I'd like to have people like him inside there and keeping a diary of what transpires outside the view of the media.
I'm supposed to give readers positive things to do when I rant like this. I suggest you read Lord of The Flies. It describes where we are right now very well.
