WATCH Chris Wallace Tell Kellyanne Conway Not To Waste His Time With Lies About Russia

Senior White House counselor Kellyanne Conway lies so much that apparently even some of the hosts at Fox News are sick of it and are now choosing to call her out when she attempts to spread her “alternative facts.”

During an appearance on Fox News Sunday, Chris Wallace got tired of Conway’s mindless chatter and constant attempts to deflect every question he asked, leading Wallace to tell her at one point:

“Kellyanne, you’ve got to allow me to ask some questions. This week the president continued to attack his attorney general… Does the president want Jeff Sessions to continue as attorney general or — as has been suggested — is he considering him moving over to replace General Kelly as the secretary of homeland security?”

Conway responded:

“That’s a personnel question that only the president can answer. These MS-13 gangs are murdering innocent Americans and bringing drugs and violence into our communities.”

Clearly annoyed, Wallace told his guest:

“I understand that. The question is, is he considering moving [Sessions to homeland security] if the immigration part of this is so important?”

Again, Conway prevaricated:

“I won’t comment on that but I will tell you that the president has expressed frustration about [Sessions recusing himself from the Russia investigation]. And look at what’s happened with this ridiculous Russian collusion delusion. You see all these journalists, who built entire TV sets and lower-thirds and screaming graphics and breathless coverage, now slinking away this week, Chris, from the Russian collusion coverage. Why? Because you have everyone, from Jared Kushner meeting with the House and the Senate and giving his public statement.

“You have no ‘there’ there whatsoever. We were promised the next Watergate, we don’t even have water polo. We don’t have watermelon. It’s so ridiculous and the only thing I can see happening with Russia right now is this FusionGPS matter [allegedly connected to Hillary Clinton], the Senate witness who said everybody should go look over there at what’s happened. Somebody being paid by the Russians to compile a damaging dossier on Donald Trump. Again, filled with falsities and lies.”

That’s when Wallace realized the futility of trying to get a straight answer out of the White House aide:

“Okay. Let’s not waste anymore time. Let’s talk about Obamacare… Is that the president’s plan, stay on repeal and replace, change the Senate rules, end the legislative filibuster so that you can pass a fuller repeal and replace, including selling insurance across state lines?”

And once again, Conway didn’t actually answer the question:

“The president will not accept those who said it’s time to move on. We’ve met with the Obamacare victims at the White House several times now. They are real people.”

Know who else is real, Kellyanne? Robert Mueller. And his investigation continues.

Healthcare Right Wing Morons The Karma Is Gonna Get Ya

Tomi Lahren Tries To Criticize Obamacare, Winds Up Proving Her Own Hypocrisy (TWEETS)

According to many conservatives, the Affordable Care Act–aka Obamacare–is the worst thing to ever happen to this country. They love to rail against a program which has allowed tens of millions of people to purchase health insurance and helped guarantee that getting decent healthcare doesn’t cost a fortune.

And yet, when confronted with facts, those same people are often forced to admit that Obamacare is actually a good thing.

Such was the case Saturday evening when former talk show host Chelsea Handler debated right-wing loudmouth Tomi Lahren. Handler asked Lahren about her own situation when it came to health insurance, and Lahren replied:

“Well, I’m on my parents health insurance…I’m 24.”

Of course, the only reason Lahren is allowed to remain in her parents insurance is because of a provision in the Affordable Care Act which says children can do so until age 26.

No sooner had those words left Lahren’s big mouth than the internet lit up with plenty of criticism for her:

https://twitter.com/ParkerMolloy/status/891450255241342976

Yeah, Tomi, those leeches who are getting health insurance without paying for it are a real problem, aren’t they. That damn Obamacare is such a mess! Then why don’t you refuse to participate in protest? Oh, I know why: Because you’re far too busy being a hypocrite. Also, you might want to see a doctor about that foot that’s stuck in your mouth.

NRA Says Fining Gun Owners For Not Securing Weapons The Same As ‘Shaming Rape Victims’

While the National Rifle Association (NRA) is fond of advocating that every American should be allowed to own a gun, they get very upset when anyone suggests that such weapons should be stored or secured in a safe manner.

On NRA TV, the official propaganda arm of the NRA, a discussion of gun thefts increasing in the south led to the host, Grant Stinchfeld, to weigh in on the issue in typical ignorant fashion:

“We talked about this just a little bit earlier here, this new study out now, I need everyone to know, the American Center for Progress [sic] is a left-wing group. They issued a study that gun thefts are up in the southern United States. They may or may not be — it doesn’t matter. The end result of the study is, they want to increase storage laws and give penalties to the victims for not storing their guns properly and they make no mention of going after the criminals.”

Stinchfeld’s guest, NRA spokesperson Dana Loesch, then had the nerve to say assessing a fine for a gun owner who doesn’t secure his or her weapons is akin to shaming a rape victim:

“That’s like shaming a rape survivor – it’s the exact same logic. How about this, how about they make tougher penalties for individuals who steal? Steal firearms. How about they have harsher punishment for those individuals who break the law?”

The exact same logic? That’s so blatantly nonsensical that it proves just how far ammosexuals will go in order to defend the indefensible.

Loesch then added this:

“These individuals that they are seeking to punish haven’t broken the law. They have been victimized, as you accurately noted. So why in the world would they pass legislation that seeks to further victimize the already victims of these criminal acts?”

Gun ownership and rape. How in the hell are those two ideas the least bit analogous? Leave it to the NRA to be as disgusting as humanly possible as they seek to expand their membership rolls.

Chris Cuomo: This Isn’t A White House, It’s ‘Thunderdome’ (VIDEO)

Less than 24 hours after the publication of an article detailing the obscenity-laced phone call White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci made to a reporter for the New Yorker, CNN’s Chris Cuomo summed up the current atmosphere in the West Wing: “Thunderdome.”

Cuomo’s guest to discuss the mayhem in the White House was former Trump campaign aide Jason Miller. Cuomo asked Miller:

“The turmoil inside the White House is real and on full display. Did you see Ryan Lizza’s latest piece in the “New Yorker”? You missed Scaramucci making his case to the American people he was brought in by the President to do some things and most of them start and end within the White House.

“Jason Miller, it is Thunderdome in the White house — two men enter, one man leaves? How did it get to this point?”

The eternally dishonest Miller replied:

“Well, Chris. I think one thing to keep in mind here is that President Trump likes to surround himself with folks who are passionate and like to mix it up. He likes to see them hash it out and see which idea or opinion comes to the top — up to a point.

“I think the critical distinction here is at a certain point the president will look and say this is becoming a distraction or getting in the way of the agenda, and then, folks will find themselves on the outs. That’s not where you want to be. I think that things have gotten a little bit too heated.”

A little heated?! That’s the understatement of the 21st century.

Finally, Miller defended Scaramucci:

“I think Anthony is a breath of fresh air coming into the White House. I love his focus on the leaks and I think he’s going to be a great teammate.”

A great teammate who cannot get along with anyone else. Yeah, that’s just what this out of control White House needs: Another raging asshole.

Fox News Lies Healthcare

WATCH The Whiny ‘Fox & Friends’ Hosts Gripe About The Failure To Repeal Obamacare

The airheads at the Fox News show Fox & Friends were in a deep funk Friday morning as they reported on the failure of the GOP-controlled Senate to pass a repeal of the Affordable Care Act, aka Obamacare. But as soon as they started talking, it became painfully clear that they didn’t understand a damn thing about insurance.

Co-host Steve Doocy, a somber look on his face, declared:

“You heard Chuck Schumer say we are not celebrating, yet you see some of the images out of Capitol Hill last night, in the middle of the night, people were taking selfies — a lot of happy faces. Elizabeth Warren outside taking selfies with supporters.”

Was that anything at all like the big photo-op President Trump had in the Rose Garden when the House finally managed to pass the Trumpcare bill back in May, Steve?

Next, Brian Kilmeade decided to take a cheap shot at younger Americans:

“I laugh, too, that these young people are out there celebrating. Congratulations, you now will pay a fine or you have to have insurance. Congratulations, the healthy people are paying for the sick people.”

And finally, co-host Ainsley Earhardt chimed in:

“Congratulations, because now people who need healthcare can’t afford it because these premiums are astronomical.”

Earhardt’s point is moot because she doesn’t give a damn about people having to pay more for insurance. But with his comments, Kilmeade proved he doesn’t even understand the basics of insurance. Twitter gave him hell for his lack of comprehension, and it was well deserved. First, however, here’s the sullen Fox News boneheads:

Oh, and as for the idea that one should never take selfies when happy, the Foxers need look no further than themselves:

I often wonder: Is it the least bit painful to be as brainwashed and ignorant as the Fox News hosts and the people who watch them?
