We may finally have the answer to that "blood coming out of her whatever" mystery. There are gaping, seeping wounds!
Now, what's this all about? The moderator, Chris Wallace, was questioning her about Steve Bannon's attack on media, which was:
The media should be embarrassed and humiliated and keep its mouth shut and just listen for a while... The media has zero integrity, zero intelligence and no hard work. You’re the opposition party. Not the Democratic Party. You’re the opposition party.Wallace asked her if she knew how offensive it is to tell the press to shut up. Conway said she knows Bannon and his point was the need to listen before speaking. She complained about everyone jumping on her phrase "alternative facts," last week when she went on 3 Sunday shows. They cherry-picked those 2 words to make her look bad instead of how she'd "ripped a new one to some of those hosts" on many other issues.
Not one silly political analyst and pundit who talked smack all day long about Donald Trump has been let go. They are on panels every Sunday. They’re on cable news every day.... I’m too polite to call them by name. But they know who they are, and they’re all wondering, will I be the first to go?... They embarrassed, they failed to protect their shareholders and their board members and their colleagues.Wallace had to end it there. Kellyanne said "thanks" and "It's been fun." Wallace said, "And let me say, you didn't rip me a new one." She agreed and added: "I talk like a Jersey girl sometimes."
And yet we deal with [them] every single day. We turn the other cheek. If you are part of team Trump, you walk around with these gaping, seeping wounds every single day, and that's fine. I believe in a full and fair press. I’m here every Sunday morning. I haven't slept [in] in a month. I believe in a full and fair press. But with the free press comes responsibility. And responsibility is to get the story right. Biased coverage is easy to detect. Incomplete coverage impossible to detect. That’s my major grievance, is the media are not -- they’re not giving us complete coverage.
President Trump has signed all these executive orders this week. He's met with these heads of states. He's done so many things to stimulate the economy, to boost wages, to create jobs. Where's the coverage?
Kellyanne Conway is, indeed, a "Jersey girl." She was born Kellyanne Elizabeth Fitzpatrick in Camden, New Jersey to a father of Irish ancestry and a mother of Italian ancestry. Her parents divorced when she was 3, and she grew up with her mother, grandmother, and 2 unmarried aunts. That's a lot of New Jersey Italian women.
They lived in Waterford Township, New Jersey, which is in a part of south Jersey I am very familiar with. I lived in northern New Jersey for 5 years before I went to college, but then, because my father's job moved from NYC to Philadelphia, my parents moved to a place less than 10 miles down the White Horse Pike from Waterford Township. It was quite an experience to have to go home for the summer to that strange part of the country. One summer I worked at the White Horse Diner. Maybe I waited on the 3-year-old Kellyanne Conway when I was 19.
