Kellyanne Conway killed it on Real Time with Bill Maher. She slammed the misuse of funds and the lack of protection that school children receive pointing out the hypocrisy of how politicians want armed guards to protect our money but not our kids. She then was able to get Maher to admit that the J6 hearings only exist to prevent Trump from running again.
“Should he be able to run again for president?” Maher asked.
“That’s what this is about,” Conway said Friday night. “At least you admit it. At least you said the quiet part out loud: that these investigations are about preventing [Trump] from ever running again.”
Maher and guest Josh Barro suggested the hearings may be a precursor to criminal prosecution by the Justice Department.
“But only if he believes that he lost,” Conway stated, insisting that the former president did believe he won in 2020 despite advisers saying he lost.
During the show’s “Overtime” segment, the 2016 Trump campaign manager and senior counselor to the former president reiterated that the Jan. 6 hearings are representative of a courtroom.
“We were talking about Jan. 6, and I wanted to gently remind everybody: It’s not a courtroom. It’s a hearing,” Conway said. “They didn’t even have the guts, I think I said balls, to subpoena [Trump], and they never do.”
She added that regardless of what comes of the Jan. 6 committee’s efforts, the GOP nominee will be someone that runs on an “America First” agenda.
Conway owned this show. The entire clip is less than 14 minutes long so if you have the time, you can watch it below:
So, Trump has not announced if he’s going to run and can you blame him? Based on voter energy alone, Democrats are out to bury him. I think that once this hearing his over, we’ll know for sure if he’s running or not. What do you think? Let me know in the comments below.
