Why does the press love Kellyanne Conway so much

She is always on tv, they are always praising her, MSNBC constantly gushes over her even the left leaning folks, CNN did a fluff piece on her in an article and on tv last night.

I never liked the lady even prior to he taking over trump's campaign and thought she was crazy.

1. I don't understand it, either, unless it is for the amusement value

She dodges, lies, evades, deflects and spews talking points at almost every question. She talks so fast, it's hard to even follow what she's saying.

The best way to describe her is brittle.

3. The better to question to ask is this

Why does she do tv so much? Shouldn't she be working every day on the campaign? Campaign managers should only do tv very rarely; leave the tv mostly to the press secretary and official surrogates.

6. There is only one thing she deserves any praise for.

She is an excellent liar.

To her it is an asset.

I would not want to earn a living by lying.

It tells me all I need to know about someone who would.

The media should shun and humiliate liars, alas they depend

on them for their living.

It is a vicious circle of corrupt capitalism.

9. 24 hours to fill with an election that is very predictable.

So they fill them with ridiculously horrendous people who lie in an 'entertaining' way

Which is the only reason Donald Trump became a 'media darling' decades ago.

19. Somebody finally mentioned it.

She's always creeped me out with her relentless blather, but when she gives that humorless grin revealing those cuspids I just recoil.

This isn't body-shaming - just a gut reaction to her constant gurning.

34. I never knew the word gurning before.

There's no body shaming about it, she has beautifully white, well polished, tiny little teeth, and some of them are fangs.

And the fangs are cute.

All the long winded filibustering and outrageous lies that she says to back that bald tubby orange nazi can be forgiven, because she's cute. She helps makes dRumpfenfuhrer's nazi message "cute". Those tiny little perfect white fangs sum up the danger and cuteness of her message.

It's not like I'm Don Rickles, I'm not scrutinizing her for some flaws, so I can shame her for her appearance. When she's on the show "explaining" things, as she starts to filibuster and maunder on about the issues, my mind begins to wander and I start to tune out. So I'm just watching her flap her gums and work her jaw, "blah blah blah, e-mail wikileak benghazi foundation, blah blah", and I keep seeing flashes of those tiny widdle fangs.

She was rapey Todd Akin's flack, back when he was running.

18. Oh *barf* "she was romantically linked to...Fred Thompson" - gag gag gag!1

As I said, she and Barbara OLSON (wife of Ted OLSON) were *vociferously* hateful in the forefront of the attacks on the CLINTONs and Dems in general, along with the husband in his official capacities, up to and including his despicable role in Coup 2000, such that his later/surprising reinvention in joining BOIES was, to me, more like salt in the wounds rather than a victory for Gay rights. Anyway, Kellyanne and Barbara were far more hateful, if that's possible, than the duo of INGRAHAM and COULTERgeist because of their comparative heft of intellect and deadly conviction.

Hadn't thought of her until she surfaced with CRUZ and DRUMPF, but now have to wash out the vomit of her with Fred THOMPSON.

[font size=5]Who Is Kellyanne Conway? 9 Things to Know About Donald Trump's New Campaign Manager.[/font]

.... ... Prior to marrying Conway, [FONT style="BACKGROUND-COLOR: yellow"]she was romantically linked to the late Tennessee Sen. Fred Thompson[/FONT], according to New York magazine, a Republican lawmaker and actor who starred in Law & Order as well as numerous movies. ....

4. She's worked extensively with Republican lawmakers.
Conway is president and CEO of The Polling Company, which she founded in 1995. Her company often works with Republican candidates to appeal to female voters and the client list, according to CNN, reads like a who's who of conservative politicians and organizations: Indiana Gov. Mike Pence, Newt Gingrich's former presidential campaign, Reps. Steve King and Michele Bachmann, FreedomWorks, Americans for Prosperity, The Heritage Foundation, National Rifle Association, and Family Research Council.

One of her clients, Todd Akin, a Republican representative from Missouri, drew sharp criticism during his failed U.S. Senate run in 2012 when he referred to "legitimate rape," saying in a TV interview, "If it's a legitimate rape, the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down."

Earlier in her career, Kellyanne [FONT style="BACKGROUND-COLOR: yellow"]Fitzpatrick (her maiden name) appeared on TV frequently to attack the Clintons[/FONT]. (Since the '90s, she's provided commentary on more than 1,200 TV shows.)

... conservative lies and then grin about it like a sociopath.


I felt a little bad that she died on 9/11, though.

23. They were a tag team, the prominent duo face of the Elves, when INGRAHAM/Coultergeist were

just "apprentices" (to coin a word!1). Before the Faux Propaganda Network, they were the Blonde "Elves" - a gang of all-blondes ripping the CLINTONs ceaselessly, a corps within the Vast Rightwing Conspiracy. It's not just resemblance of the two, it was a coordinated machine.

As for OLSON's having died in the 9-11 plane in Pennsylvania, that is its OWN THING by itself. ATWATER supposedly repented before dying from a horrible disease, but that is ALSO its own SEPARATE THING. These people did horrible things, and their untimely or whatever deaths did not do ONE THING to change the horrible things they did.

But I sincerely appreciate your kindness in acknowledging human tragedies.

She must not have revolted me to the same level as Olson or I just didn't see her as much back then.

I believe it, though!

28. Atwater {SPIT} CLAIMED to repent...

...but other sources tell a different story...

Death
Atwater died on March 29, 1991, from his brain tumor. Funeral services were held at the Trinity Cathedral Church in Atwater's final residence, Columbia, South Carolina. A memorial service was held at the Washington National Cathedral.

Ed Rollins, however, stated in the 2008 documentary Boogie Man: The Lee Atwater Story, that "Atwater) was telling this story about how a Living Bible was what was giving him faith and I said to Mary (Matalin), 'I really, sincerely hope that he found peace.' She said, 'Ed, when we were cleaning up his things afterwards, the Bible was still wrapped in the cellophane and had never been taken out of the package,' which just told you everything there was. He was spinning right to the end."

And they can't bring themselves to hold her feet to the fire or call bullshit because she sweet-talks them off camera. I've heard Todd, Tweety, and others make apologies for her ridiculous spinning of Trump nonsense immediately referencing what a great person she is.

24. She's the only Trump spokesmodel who doesn't cause apoplexy.

She's persistent, sure, and annoying, of course. But at the end of the interview, you can kinda see she's just doing it for the money. A well heeled CNN interviewer can kind of respect that.

27. I think they like her because she's one of a very few Con supporters that can

speak english, look reasonably good on camera, and still give some link to the Con's campaign. It doesn't matter that everything she says are lies because that's ALL you get from that campaign.

30. Proud liberal 80 ...

I guess it's because they feel sorry for a "lovable" LOSER.

She's never really done much IMHO. Has been a Clinton-hater for years and so has her husband. Yes she's been a pollster for a long time, but has never taken ANY client to the White House. She's a nasty piece of work to me. Always has been smarmy and sleazy, and cemented it when she joined that racist POS tRump campaign.

Hopefully, she and her bad hair will go away for a LONG time. Tired of seeing her face. She's as big of a liar as tRump is.
