In true dictatorship style, fuhrer Donald Trump has created a new position on his staff. His spin doctor, Kellyanne Conway will become “counselor to the president.” In other words, she will be his handler, representing Robert Mercer and Vladimir Putin.
Conway has no experience or knowledge regarding government; this position is simply a payback for her efforts to explain Trump’s lies during his campaign. Will taxpayers be forced to pay her salary, or will Robert Mercer cover her expenses? I don’t want any of my tax money to go to a liar and a cheat.
“Kellyanne Conway has been a trusted adviser and strategist who played a crucial role in my victory,” Trump said in the announcement. “She is a tireless and tenacious advocate of my agenda and has amazing insights on how to effectively communicate our message. I am pleased that she will be part of my senior team in the West Wing.”
Let’s analyze this statement; or maybe I already did. Robert Mercer ordered Trump to hire her. From day one it was obvious that her position as campaign manager was in name only. Her orders were to ‘keep Trump on message,’ and restrict his ability to tweet. Conway’s tactic was obvious; she never answered a question; she asked questions as she attempted to explain Trump’s multiple lies. When Trump says that she “effectively communicates our message,” he is spinning the truth in a far different manner than I have.
Trump has already wasted more tax dollars than the Defense Department spends in one month.
The American people must demand answers; who will pay Conway’s salary; who will reimburse the city of New York; and who is paying for his victory tour?
We know it’s not Trump; he steals; he doesn’t pay.
