Kellyanne Conway blasted by the president of her alma mater WTF
Kellyanne Conway has been called out by the president of her alma mater, Trinity Washington University, in a recent school blog post titled, "On Lies and the Truths We Must Tell."
In the piece, Patricia McGuire states that "Presidential Counselor Kellyanne Conway, Trinity Class of 1989, has played a large role in facilitating the manipulation of facts and encouraging the grave injustice being perpetrated by the Trump Administration's war on immigrants among many other issues."
She goes on to point out, "Ms. Conway invented the now-infamous phrase 'alternative facts' to defend Trump's claims about the size of crowds at his inauguration, a thinly-veiled autocratic scheme..."
The school president then says, "Ms. Conway has been part of a team that thinks nothing of shaping and spreading a skein of lies as a means to secure power. Perhaps the 'Bowling Green Massacre' comment was truly a mistake, as she claims, but she repeated that canard on three different occasions as an explanation for why the travel ban, an executive order that clearly discriminates against Muslims, was necessary."
In response, Conway told the Washington Post, "It's a disappointment to have the president of the university lift up other Trinity graduates who have a casual relationship with the truth."
Trump's adviser reportedly brought up fellow alum Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi and others who, in Conway's words, "attack me, and never have the courtesy of calling or emailing me to ask what I meant on any given occasion."
Nevertheless, comments to the critical blog post appear to be largely positive, with one self-identified former alum writing, "Thanks, Pat, for your clarity and eloquence. You give voice to the Trinity I know, respect and love."
