“Linebacker” Kellyanne Conway Plays Defense for Trump in Interviews with the Press

hike

You could say Donald J. Trump has become America’s “quarterback” now that he’s the President of the United States–deciding where to throw the ball. But how hard is too hard a catch Trump’s teammates might be forced to handle? The press has its own offensive and defensive teams ready to intercept.

“If you’re part of Team Trump, you walk around with these gaping, seeping wounds every single day,” said Trump’s Senior Advisor and Campaign Manager Kellyanne Conway on the set of Fox News…Then, is it in anyone’s best interest to work for such an administration that doesn’t seem to want to get along with news reporters?

Whether or not you live in the United States, you’re probably aware that President Trump isn’t on the same page as many news outlets in the U.S., whose job it is to call upon the red carpet those who do not defend the U.S. Constitution or speak the truth. This crisis could impact how First-Amendment-scholars (journalists) confront the Trump Administration.

It’s noticeable how strategic Conway is when encouraged to respond on behalf of President Trump for important matters or issues addressed by her interviewers. One has to wonder why anyone would want a job that entails “seeping wounds.” Doesn’t seem very smart.

In countless interviews with CNN, Fox News, ABC News and The View‘s “The Political View,” Conway may have shown signs of “Trumpitis,” seen by the way former 2016 U.S. candidate Trump responded to questions during his campaign, prior to his inauguration, leading questions away from answers and toward another question.

It is obvious to TheWallStreetJacob that Conway takes on a “Trumpian” approach toward answering questions from the press, media or reporters, which almost always sparks debate, confusion or a heated argument during live broadcasts.

Is Conway’s lack of support to the media in addressing important matters from a non-biased perspective intentional or has her affiliation with Trump given the media a reason to believe Conway’s merely playing hardball to hide information from the Trump Administration, who doesn’t want private information leaked to the public?

Sabotage against an internal body of news correspondents across an entire nation or not, Conway might be hurting her reputation by advocating for President Trump’s recently thrown shade since his 2016-electoral college vote-victory.

For instance, President Trump has called many news sources “Fake News,” offending many news anchors such as Fox News’s Chris Wallace. When Wallace brought that to Conway’s attention during an interview, his statement was redirected to Conway’s justification to call news sources out as being fake.

This is because perhaps Conway feels as though very little recognition has been given to the Trump Administration for its showmanship in class, kindness and support for American people. For further elaboration on this matter, TheWallStreetJacob encourages you to continue reading.

Of course, while trading facts–or were they trading “alternative facts?”–Wallace appeared to have glazed over during Conway’s retaliations throughout heavier discussions in the interview. And yes…more insults were given to news anchors around the country on the etiquette of proper news coverage by Conway.

“If you’re part of Team Trump, you walk around with these gaping, seeping wounds every single day. And, and that’s fine. I believe in a full and fair press. I’m here every Sunday morning. I haven’t slept in in months. I believe in a full and fair press, but with a free press comes responsibility, and the responsibility is to get the story right. Biased coverage, easy to detect–incomplete coverage–impossible to detect.

President Trump has signed all these executive orders this week. He’s met with these heads-of-state, he’s done so many things to stimulate the economy, to boost wages, to create new jobs. Where’s the coverage?” said Conway.

One thing is certain. The Trump Administration have the ball and is kicking off into a rough net since Trump took office. Will the press intercept Trump and his top players for a major touchdown that can upset The Trump Administration by divulging potentially unconstitutional acts, or is The Trump Administration too slick for reporters to get their hands on classified information that may expose President Trump as someone who his supporters wouldn’t believe he is?

Trump Builds Wall in New York… ‘Times’

President-elect Trump may be walking on sunshine, but one global community has recently been stirred by The Donald yet again. This time, it’s both physically and mentally impaired people.

Trump has taken a lot of heat for allegedly mocking a physically handicapped reporter from the New York Times. The entire U.S. disabled community isn’t excited about having a President-elect like Trump, according to Vox news site and the Washington Post. Trump’s tweets appear defensive and one has to wonder if he truly understands compassion.

Is this crisis one of many yet to come?

Disability rights advocate Anastasia Somoza and pro-Hillary Clinton Super-Pac ad actor Dante Latchman, who suffers from a rare cancer of the spine and appears physically disabled, are two people of an entire global community who are not sure how to feel after Trump’s ‘interpretive performance’ during an interview.

While his personal brand shows consistency, the public eye sees him as someone without a filter who is confident in his decisions and not aware of insults to another person. Golden Globes speaker Meryl Streep said “When the powerful use their position to bully others, we all lose.”

This is a global crisis because Trump’s choices and behavior reflect who he is as a man with a family, a businessman or stakeholder, and a leader who has global relations with clientele both foreign and domestic who may no longer respect him, or want to continue businessRelated image

 

Trump immediately defended his case on Twitter, followed by 73 thousand tweets, and 38 thousand re-tweets on his initial post, January 9th, in retaliation to Meryl Streep’s subtle “shame-on-you” attack at the 74th Golden Globes.

Vox News reporter Ari Ne’eman says policy is what mattered in deciding the “disabled-persons-vote” for our new year’s presidency. “What mattered—and matters—to us was policy. Hillary Clinton offered clear, specific, and timely policy proposals to expand the social safety net and civil rights of people with disabilities, while Trump made clear his intent to slash services and roll back legal protections.”

Whether you’re republican or democratic, an extremist, or radical—surely there’s handicapped people among every nation who should be shown respect, but that’s not an example of leadership Trump demonstrated.

The spotlight hits one victim–New York Time’s reporter Serge F. Kovaleski, who’s one of potentially millions of people in an underdog society known as ‘disabled people,’ insulted by a cruel representation of Serge’s disability. Trump simply played it cool and said he was mocking Serge groveling at him.

Serge F. kovaleski has not shown signs of aggression, but strength. A hard-to-determine-if-it’s-real-‘Reasonable Trump’-Twitter account posted “During my campaign, I made an unflattering and insensitive portrayal of people with disabilities to mock Serge Kovaleski. I truly am sorry.” That was posted on December 15th, 2016, the 220th anniversary of our Constitution’s First Amendment and Bill of Rights.

Convenient, right?

–That an apology by a Twitter-Trump for his means of expressively mocking Serge’s groveling, knowing how bad it made Donald Trump look, took place on the anniversary of the First Amendment, which protects freedom of speech and symbolic language. In this case, Trump’s expressive representation of Kovaleski.

However, The WallTweet Journal (WTJ) has a difficult time believing this apology is indeed President-elect Trump because he is not a man who regrets his actions if he truly means what he does and says, and why not simply apologize on national television or on NPR if he were to make a public announcement regarding his sympathies?

Only time will tell if Trump will serve as an honorable 45th president of the United States. As our country sadly reflects the choices and slander made by a successful businessman, the rest of the world eagerly anticipates the decisions and behavior of President-elect Trump to shine as honorary examples of both integrity and leadership.
