In society, and especially in politics, there exist very few ‘indisputable truths.’ One, which is of great importance because of your illegitimate president, is the proverb 12:19; “Truthful lips endure forever, but a lying tongue lasts only a moment.”
Lies may influence the uniformed for a short period of time, but eventually facts expose the fallacies of the evil-doers. Such is the case with Trump, and his personal spin doctor, Kellyanne Conway.
Television media praised Conway for becoming the first woman to become the campaign manager of a presidential candidate. They were lying to the American people. Any individual who closely follows politics was fully aware the her true purpose was Trump’s personal spin doctor. She was instructed to offer “alternative facts” every time Trump lied to his supporters and the American people; she was very busy.
Conway has now become ‘persona non grata’ by multiple media organizations. Her failure to provide factual information has deemed her useless to television news agencies.
Conway is also under investigation for an ethics violation. She appeared on FOX Noise and promoted Ivanka Trump’s clothing line, which had recently been dropped by Nordstrum and Neiman Marcus.
Lies sometimes misdirect the facts for a short period of time. Conway has lied to the American people for the past six months, and has lost all credibility.
Her latest condemnation comes from the university where she received her degree.
Trinity Washington University President Patricia McGuire offered harsh words describing her unprofessional and demeaning avoidance of the truth and proven facts. She stated that she was “part of a team that thinks nothing of shaping and spreading a skein of lies as a means to secure power.” On her blog, McGuire was more definitive.
“We Americans study the history of tyranny and exclaim, “That’s terrible, but it would not happen here!” as we congratulate ourselves on the robust state of our democracy. The experience of the last few months now exposes this once-confident boast as terribly naive and perhaps even dangerous as a new administration indulges in a remarkable torrent of false and misleading statements as a basis for policy and action.”
McGuire then turned to Conway, class of 1989.
“Presidential Counselor Kellyanne Conway, Trinity Class of 1989, has played a large role in facilitating the manipulation of facts and encouraging the grave injustice being perpetrated by the Trump Administration’s war on immigrants among many other issues. She is one of President Trump’s primary spokespersons, an almost daily figure on cable news shows,” McGuire wrote. ” Some people admire her staunch advocacy for her client’s positions, and others applaud the fact that she was the first woman to manage a successful presidential campaign. But in fact, as is true of many of President Trump’s statements, her advocacy on his behalf is often at variance with the truth.”
“Ms. Conway invented the now-infamous phrase ‘alternative fact,’ to defend Trump’s claims about the size of crowds at his inauguration, a thinly-veiled autocratic scheme to try to claim that the Trump inauguration drew the biggest crowd in history when, in fact, it was on the smaller side,” she continued. “Ms. Conway has been part of a team that thinks nothing of shaping and spreading a skein of lies as a means to secure power. Perhaps the ‘Bowling Green Massacre’ comment was truly a mistake, as she claims, but she repeated that canard on three different occasions as an explanation for why the travel ban, an executive order that clearly discriminates against Muslims, was necessary.”
Conway responded in a manner similar to her boss. She attempted to protect her ego, although she offered no defense for her actions.
“It’s a disappointment to have the president of the university lift up other Trinity graduates who have a casual relationship with the truth,” Conway said, adding McGuire didn’t have “the courtesy of calling or emailing me to ask what I meant on any given occasion.”
Republicans have always denounced the truth, but Trump and his circle of sinners have taken it to a new and unheard of level. Lies are the norm, and truth is never a consideration.
Conway is quickly becoming a bad memory for the American people. Her decision to become a part of the Trump campaign signaled the end of her political career, and I say “good riddance.”
