Kellyanne Conway Insists Endorsing Roy Moore Proves Trump’s ‘Tremendous Moral Standards’

Posted on December 6, 2017 at 10:09am

On Wednesday, Kellyanne Conway defended President Donald Trump’s full-throated endorsement of accused pedophile Roy Moore by insisting Trump’s actions prove his moral fortitude.
During the interview on CNN, Chris Cuomo asked the White House remarked that Trump “has no moral standard at play, it’s all political pragmatism.”
In response, Conway said this: “The president has tremendous moral standards — he has said, the White House has said, that the allegations [against Moore] are troubling.”
She also tried to point out the real hypocrites were the Democrats.
“Everywhere I turn I see hypocrisy,” Conway opined, noting that  Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) did not call on Franken to resign despite accusations against him.

Conway Calls To Prohibit Golden State From Winning The Championship Unless They Come Celebrate In The White House “Like The Law Says”

Shaun Livingston said months ago, if the Warriors won the title, he wouldn’t visit Donald Trump’s White House. He’s unsurprisingly not alone in that thinking. Golden State coach Steve Kerr has called Donald Trump’s policies un-American. Stephen Curry essentially called the American president an a*s. David West said Trump’s approach is the opposite of what the forward teaches youth. But this level of unified decision-making was still somewhat surprising to see after the Warriors clinched the 2017 NBA title. This isn’t the first time players faced that conflict – participating in a photo op with someone whose policies and rhetoric you find reprehensible vs. respecting the office of the presidency – though, they have usually sided with respecting the office and getting the experience of a lifetime.

Meanwhile, counselor to U.S. President, Kellyanne Conway is at it again. In an interview with Minnesota’s KYSP Radio, she argued that the news of the Warriors’ refusal to visit the White House in a celebratory fashion is “a disrespectful act” and something you just don’t turn down. “First of all, I have to mention that I was going to congratulate the team for their win, but then I realized I’d be acting against my position by doing so. That’s the first thing. The second thing, I mean, I understand that everyone has the right to free will and all that, but everybody knows that an invite to visit the White House is a privilege not many are granted. It’s just one of those things you don’t turn down. So, to do something like this, and publicly, it’s a scandal,” she said.

She continued, “One could almost say it’s a rule. As a matter of fact, you know something? I’m just going to go out there and say it: it’s a law. And though I know it’s not really a law, I’m going to make sure to make it one. Because, it’s not about who the president is; the guy’s in there only temporarily. It’s about the structure, the space, the history within it and, ultimately, the honor of being inside a place where so many decisions took place; decisions that shaped the world as we know it. Ugh, I’m getting goosebumps just thinking about it. I can’t even begin to describe how I felt when I visited it for the first time. The Warriors don’t realize it yet, but they’re looking at this all wrong.”

“That’s exactly why I plan to do everything in my power to make sure Golden State is prohibited from winning the championship, formally speaking, unless they agree to come and celebrate in the White House. That’s the rule – or the law, whichever one you prefer – because I refuse to let this privilege be smeared by a group of so-called athletes who are such prima donnas that they can’t fathom being a part of something greater than their own puny achievements. Winning the NBA is done by a different team every year; but, there’s only one White House. That’s the gameplay, fellas. I hope I made it clear enough for you,” she concluded.

Kellyanne Conway: Those on Medicaid who will lose health insurance can always get jobs

Kellyanne Conway: Those on Medicaid who will lose health insurance can always get jobs
White House counselor Kellyanne Conway says people on Medicaid who will lose coverage under the Republican plan to repeal Obamacare could find jobs that provide health insurance.

When the Affordable Care Act expanded Medicaid coverage, Conway said, that “opened it up” to healthy people who could theoretically work, Conway told ABC’s “This Week” on Sunday.

“Obamacare took Medicaid, which was designed to help the poor, the needy, the sick, disabled, also children and pregnant women, it took it and went way above the poverty line to many able-bodied Americans,” she said. They “should probably find other — at least see if there are other options for them.”

Conway went on: “If they are able-bodied and they want to work, then they’ll have employer-sponsored benefits like you and I do.”

As Jonathan Cohn points out in the Huffington Post, however, Conway’s reasoning is faulty: “The majority of able-bodied adults on Medicaid already have jobs. The problem is that they work as parking lot attendants and child care workers, manicurists and dishwashers ― in other words, low-paying jobs that typically don’t offer insurance. Take away their Medicaid and they won’t be covered.”

Research from the Kaiser Family Foundation bears that out: “Among Medicaid adults (including parents and childless adults — the group targeted by the Medicaid expansion) nearly 8 in 10 live in working families, and a majority are working themselves.” Fifty-nine percent of them work either part or full time. Their jobs, however, do not offer health insurance.

Under former President Barack Obama’s ACA, companies with 50 or more employees are required to offer health insurance to employees working at least 30 hours a week or pay a penalty. That leaves a loophole large enough to drive a truck through.

“Fifty-seven percent of firms offer health benefits to their workers,” the Kaiser foundation says. “The likelihood of offering health benefits differs significantly by size of firm, with only 47 percent of employers with three-to-nine workers offering coverage, but virtually all employers with 1,000 or more workers offering coverage to at least some of their employees.”

Further, the foundation notes: “Among firms that offer coverage, an average of 79 percent of workers are eligible for the health benefits offered by their employer. Of those eligible, 79 percent take up their employer’s coverage.” Ultimately, only 63 percent of employees in workplaces that offer coverage get coverage through their employer.
