Kellyanne Conway was released from the White House basement last night

For a few months, it’s almost as if Kellyanne Conway has been locked in a White House basement or something. She was in the wind. She was nowhere. She stopped appearing on cable news shows, she stopped publicly lying about anything and everything. I hoped that this was a conscious choice on the part of news outlets, to simply stop booking Conway. Yesterday, TMZ even had this video with Conway where she claimed she hadn’t disappeared at all (another lie) and that she’s been working to fix the opioid crisis or whatever. Of course, then Donald Trump fired James Comey. And all hell broke loose and suddenly it was all hands on deck, and all of Bigly’s minions were sent out to speak to journalists. Which is how Conway ended up on a link-up interview with Anderson Cooper. Anderson eviscerated her.

If you couldn’t even sit through that, I don’t blame you. Personally, I was watching Rachel Maddow and Chris Hayes last night and I think I made the right choice (Maddow was practically choking back tears at various points because she was so upset). But trust that Coop got it done. Also trust that Coop will literally roll his eyes on camera at Conway’s nonsense:

Also: Conway wasn’t the only minion doing damage control last night. They sent Sarah Huckabee Sanders – who is somehow worse than Sean Spicer – to Fox News for an interview. She says that “it’s time to move on” from investigating Trump’s Russian connections. SAD!

    Listen, Anderson Cooper is wonderful, and this is wonderful, but that isn’t an eye roll.
    That’s a look to the heavens for strength in dealing with that straw woman.

    • Sansa says:

      She held herself up with him and came across as very smart and sharp, but then anyone can make the case he deserves to be fired. He exposed HC investigation and withheld Trump was being investigated last summer.

      • Olenna says:

        Yes, Scaryanne is smart. She’s also shrewd, and can lie and prevaricate like a sociopath, which is exactly what she did last night on CNN. Anyone with a basic level of intelligence could see that in her shameful performance.

      • HappyMom says:

        She didn’t come across as smart or sharp. I watched the whole, painful, interview. She had her talking points-the same ones Spicer and Sarah Huckabee Saunders used as well.

      • jwoolman says:

        The FBI protocol is to not discuss ongoing cases or even say they are investigating for very good reason. People can be cleared, but their reputation is affected just by being investigated. So Comey was quite correct to avoid saying the Trump campaign was being investigated for its Russia ties until the President made it public much later. Obama knew about it, too, but McConnell threatened to accuse him of being partisan if he said anything during the election. Which minus the threats was actually good advice because it really would have seemed like just politics.

        Hillary’s “e-mails” were a bit different because of the Congressional investigation, so it was already public. He did violate the general protocol to avoid interfering in a general election by being particularly cautious in the prior two months but rogue agents and Giuliani were bursting at the seams to tell media about it anyway.

  2. eXo says:

    Kellywitchanne is still not fired? Too bad.

  3. Rapunzel says:

    It’s time to move on from investigating Trump/Russia for sure. We should be in the sentencing phase of the proceedings. Hurry up!

  4. nemera34 says:

    The United States of America and it’s citizens should be ashamed for what it is allowing to happen in this Nation. The path we are going down has and will destroy everything we say we stand for. And we have allowed Donald Trump to Trump everything positive and good about us

    • Belle Epoch says:

      Agree. He is in the fine tradition of banana republic dictators and lovely people like Putin. The difference is Putin kills people and then they can’t talk. Trump has done so much harm to this country I don’t know if it can recover – but the Resistance is so huge it gives me some hope. Then I go read some trumpster comments and want told shoot myself. They believe there is “no evidence” of interference from Russia and it’s all made up by libtards. RRRRRRRR STABBY

    • Grant says:

      Um, most of us didn’t vote for this buffoon.

      • jwoolman says:

        The overwhelming majority of adults did not vote for him. He got about 25% of the potential votes from registered voters, Hillary got about 3 million more votes than he did so her percentage was similar. If you think about unregistered voters, that number is still smaller. We have no idea how the non-voters (registered and unregistered) feel about what is going on unless they happen to be asked by a pollster.

        Hillary would have been in the same position, except she would have known it and not be bleating about her amazing win. She would know she would need to convince a lot more people than voted for her that her policies were worthwhile and pay attention to how those non-voters were feeling about it.

        So everybody should relax about his hard core supporters. They are a distinct minority of the population. They don’t even represent all the people who actually voted for him.

        If your blood pressure can stay steady, go ahead and read what they say and offer some corrections to the inaccuracies when you feel the urge and have the time. But don’t feel obliged to debate them. Support for Trump or any demagogue is an emotional thing, not an intellectual thing. You are not likely to convince them by facts or logic. Some will change their minds about him only if he does something that directly badly affects them, that’s how people are. It becomes real only when their own oz is gored.

  5. Susie says:

    how much time and money did we spend on Clinton’s emails, and Huckabe is like “oh we’re done with Russia, lets move on people!” WTF??!?!?!?!!!!

    • Christin says:

      She’s the younger, darker, slower version of KAC.

    • INeedANap says:

      Yeah and they’re still not done with the emails. Check any right-wing website today and all they’re talking about are Comey’s comments a few days ago about Huma’s emails.

      You know Hillary isn’t the crime boss they think she is, because if she was Anthony Weiner would have been assassinated years ago.

  6. IlsaLund says:

    Trump’s minions were everywhere last night lying through their teeth about the Comey firing and how this Russia investigation (witch hunt) needs to end cause there’s nothing there. Voldermort sent his death eaters out to defend him.

  7. Lightpurple says:

    That she kept relying upon that unprofessional, childish sentence in that letter and then couldn’t answer questions to support that unprofessional, childish sentence in the letter and then deflected with “But the Democrats …” and “Well, I’m not being investigated” and then went back to “But the Democrats” when Cooper pointed out that Burr is not a democrat. They cannot defend this action. He fired Comey because of the grand jury subpoenas.

  8. Mikasa says:

    I think you US citizens can say good-bye to America – it’s a dictatorship now.

  9. Cannibell says:

    OMG. “I’ll ignore how unkind that is?” (start at 10:14 and you’ll be there inside a minute.)

    She is the love child of evil and glib.

    • HappyMom says:

      She makes my blood boil. This, the woman who is supporting the guy who lead the fricking birther crap about Obama, is describing a question as “unkind.” !!!!

  10. robyn says:

    I don’t know how a woman this smart can be so stupid. She reminds me of a brittle leaf that’s been pressed into a book and let out once in a while for show.

    • jwoolman says:

      It’s her job. She’s getting paid. She doesn’t have to believe it.

      Like poor Sean Spicer, who is going out of his mind. I doubt that he believes much of the crazy stuff he’s saying on behalf of Trump. No semi-rational person could. Consider the weird claims about the inaugural crowd and Obama tapping Trump’s phone. Spicer’s anxiety level is reaching epic proportions. He really needs to get a job where he doesn’t have a mercurial boss who tells him to spout fantasies in front of a camera and yells at him if he can’t be convincing enough. I really hope Sean doesn’t just drop dead in front of the reporters one day. There isn’t enough gum in the world to relax him now, even if laced with Xanax.

      Kellyanne is just temperamentally better suited to promoting ridiculous alternative facts that she knows are batshit crazy. But even she seems to be reaching a breaking point sometimes.

  11. Beth says:

    she’s sooo obnoxious! During interviews, all her and Trump do is never answer a question by always changing the topic or just telling nonsense lies. When she talks, she sounds like she’s stuffed up with a cold. Annoying. Time to lock up crooked kellyann and dumbass Donnie. Lock them up!!!!

    • moo says:

      Now, now…. she doesn’t tell “nonsense lies”… they’re Alternative Truths.
      bwahahhahahahhahahahahhahahah!!! the woman is freakin insane! PERIOD!!

  12. justcrimmles says:

    huh, and I thought my post apocalypse dream I had last night, where everyone lived in burned out train cars and everything had been decimated, Chernobyl style, was bad. That was at least just a dream. They’ve re-released the Krackenway. Put it back!

  13. wheneight says:

    The Comey firing says one thing to me: Hurry the F up with the prosecution of Trump/Russia! Every single day that passes more stuff like this will go down. He’s already gutting all of our social programs and personally profiting off of the office. Get him out of there now.

  14. Trashaddict says:

    I am rage-y at the scripty bitch. Confidence my ass.

  15. RussianBlueCat says:

    KellyAnne might want to go back in the basement. After the firing of Comey, the crap might be hitting the fan soon. It might be a good idea to lay low and work on getting her resume updated. Distance herself from this administration. I would not be surprised if Sean Spicer is working on an exit plan now.

  16. GingerCrunch says:

    Oh, she’s running around alright. And with a secret service detail. I know because I was enjoying my beautiful birthday dinner in downtown D.C. a couple weeks ago when we saw a couple of Suburbans roll up and someone was holding one car door closed. We got excited and had our phones at the ready. Imagine the utter HORROR when this monstrosity in a red suit sashays right past our window to eat on the patio of the same restaurant. 😱 Eight years bad luck or what?

    • Christin says:

      Hope your dinner wasn’t ruined. 😃

      Does she look better or worse in person?

    • Snazzy says:

      Ugh, you deserve a re-do birthday dinner after that!

      • GingerCrunch says:

        I know you guys, it almost put me off of it, but my entrée was impeccable! Same wonky eyes in person and the defiance oozed off of her. Blech

    • HappyMom says:

      Ugh. I must say I had seen a shot of one of her little girls hugging her at the Easter egg hunt at the White House gave me some empathy for her. But then when I listened to her arrogance on Anderson Cooper last night I am right back to loathing her.

  17. MellyMel says:

    My head is spinning trying to keep up with the nonsense coming out of her mouth…my God!! Anderson is a better person than me for sure.

  18. Christin says:

    Word is that spicey was hiding in the bushes while the two women appeared on camera (different shows) to amp up orange’s defense. He would only come out once the camera lights were turned off.

    You can’t make this stuff up. It’s like a never ending three stooges skit.

  19. JenB says:

    I think she had work done on her face during her basement stay.

    • MVD says:

      She’s Satan but you’re 100% right, she had work done. At least a lower eyelid lift or lots of fillers.

    • moo says:

      ME TOO!!! just waiting for someone else to see…. all last night I thought, “well, that’s why she’s been MIA!”

  20. autumn says:

    I wondered if I was imagining Rachel tearing/choking up! I’m glad (well not *glad* glad but yk) someone else noticed.

    I love her (Rachel).

  22. KCNik says:

    Anderson’s interview was great but Chris Cuomo’s was better.

  23. Sharon says:

    Kellyanne Conway looks like the Cryptkeeper! She also keeps spewing out lies.

  24. homeslice says:

    Okay, I kind of hate bashing her looks, but my god! I watched it live when Anderson interviewed her and he was visibly pained…Jeff Zucker will do anything for ratings…

  25. Ruyana says:

    They had to let her out of the basement because Spicey is hiding in the bushes and won’t come out.

  26. brincalhona says:

    Was she drunk or has she forgotten how to use consonants? Sally Yates and Susan Rice are smart. KAC is as shite as her initials sound. (Loved Anderson’s eye work-out.)

  27. why? says:

    It’s time for the press to step up and do their job. As they continue to enable Spicer, Trump, Sarah, and Kellyanne by showing up to their releases or inviting them on their shows, they are just going to keep lying. The press needs to block any and all interviews from Kellyanne, Sarah Huckabee, Spicer, and Trump. All they do is lie. What’s the point even listening to them because you know every word out of their mouth is going to be a lie.

    Trump, Spicer, Kellyanne, and Sarah have to learn that their lies have consequences They lie, the press calls them on it, and then rewards them for it by giving them another interview where they lie. I wish there was just one reporter who would stand up and tell these 4 people to stop lying. Don’t ask them questions, just straight up tell them that they are lying and then provide evidence just like Peter Alexandar did to Trump and his lies about how he had the highest electoral numbers than any President in the U. They don’t even care that we know that they are lying because as many have pointed out their interviews are strictly for an audience of one, which is Trump.

  28. Deeanna says:

    Judging from her slowed blink rate and her speech difficulties, I’d guess she’s using a bit of alcohol or a sedative. The speech thingy is subtle but it is there – and both of these are telltale signs.

    As for her face, if she’s had a face lift she should ask for her money back.

    • jwoolman says:

      Yes, Kellyanne is going to need rehab by the time she’s done with Trump. Can’t say I blame her.

      But she just looks normal to me for a woman her age. She just doesn’t seem to go all Kardashian and looks like a normal person who doesn’t go in much for plastic surgery. That’s the one thing I actually like about her, I hope she doesn’t succumb to the plastic because of such criticism. People really look like plastic dolls sooner or later, the plastic surgery especially doesn’t age well.

  29. jana says:

    Kellyanne’s face looks like its worn out two bodies.
