Many years ago I once watched “Good Morning America.” It was a legitimate morning ‘news’ broadcast when it was hosted by David Hartman and Joan Lunden. When they left, and the show began to deteriorate into a ‘variety show,’ I turned to other channels.
Today ABC offered additional proof that it lacks all credibility as a legitimate source of news and information. Kellyanne Conway was allowed to lie on camera to the American people on “This Week” with George Stephanopoulos. Any network which allows the woman who was hired for sole purpose of lying for Donald Trump; to spin the truth and attempt to mislead the American people is not worth watching.
When Conway was asked about the goal of Trumpcare to make huge cuts in Medicaid, she did what she does best; she told a huge lie.
“These are not cuts to Medicaid.”
Stephanopoulos managed a weak rebuttal, but Conway continued to lie.
“We don’t see them as cuts, it’s slowing the rate of growth in the future and getting Medicaid back to where it was,” she said.
The key words are “we don’t see them.” The Trump administration constantly offers ‘alternative facts.’
Let me tell the failed spin doctor the truth. Low income and impoverished Americans, some whom are ignorant Trump supporters, will see this as cuts to a program they desperately need for survival.
Trumpcare is murder. Thousands of Americans will die because they are unable to obtain adequate healthcare for life-threatening problems and preexisting conditions.
Any network which allows Conway to lie directly to the American people is not legitimate and should be turned off.
Please re-post; thank you.
