While House Speaker Paul Ryan, known as an establishment Republican, is instructing his fellow Republican members of Congress not to bother defending Donald Trump, the GOP presidential candidate’s spunky campaign manager told MSNBC’s Chris Matthews that many of these self-righteous politicians shoved their tongues down the throats of female staff, including her when she was younger.
House Republicans have been given the green light to focus on their individual elections as a means of preserving the GOP’s majority in the lower chamber and to ensure “that Hillary Clinton does not get a blank check” when she becomes President, Ryan said.
“He [Ryan] talks as if they’re (House Republicans) going to stop Clinton from pursuing her agenda. That’s not going to happen. They have a huge majority in the House and control the Senate and they’ve done absolutely nothing to stop the Obama juggernaut,” said former police captain and U.S. Marine Leonard Trappinsky. “Once again we see that it’s about him and his cohorts maintaining their own personal power and the hell with the country if Hillary Clinton becomes Commander-in-Chief,” he added.
MSNBC’s Chris Matthews, an openly Democratic Party sycophant asked the Trump campaign manager Kellyanne Conway how she could come to terms with Trump’s history of “aggressive grabbing,” as he put it.
“Matthews was corrected and reminded the scandal was about remarks made by Trump that were said in private and he isn’t accused of doing what President Bill Clinton — Matthews’ hero — often did to women, including raping them,” noted Charles Brothers, a former intelligence and police officer.
When Conway answered Matthews she didn’t only call out the media for the way they covered the Trump audiotape she also accused members of the U.S. Congress of doing much more than just making lewd remarks about women.
She defended her boss by saying it was “locker room banter,” and said that she’s been by herself with him frequently and he never displayed such behavior.
She also told Matthews that the media should investigate others in the Washington establishment if they are so concerned with how politicians treat women.
“I would talk to some of the members of Congress out there. When I was younger and prettier, them rubbing up against girls, sticking their tongues down women’s throats…uninvited, who didn’t like it,” she said during the interview.
When Matthews said he’d been told about similar accounts, Conway replied, “And some of them, by the way, are on the list of people who won’t support Donald Trump ’cause they all ride around on a high horse.”
At last count, 29 Republican officeholders have called for Trump to drop out of the race since his 1995 comments came to light on Friday.
When Conway appeared on Fox News’s Megyn Kelly show, she again mentioned the sexual indiscretion of congressmen.
Megyn Kelly invited Conway to return to her show in the future, so they could discuss the Congressmen involved in inappropriate behavor. Kellyanne told the Fox host that she’s prepared to name and shame them.
