Like clockwork, Kellyanne Conway turned from the joker to the actual joke.
The controversy over Donald Trump Jr.'s meeting with a Russian lawyer doesn't prove any collusion, Conway said; it only highlights the illusion and delusion of people who suspect wrongdoing.
Get it? They rhyme!
OK, you get it.
Anyway, Conway made her point clear: "Haha, look at all those people concerned that we lied to them for months about a simple question that probably wasn't even worth lying about."
So, it's mission accomplished on her part, especially if part of her mission was to pitch a perfect opportunity to turn her routine in one big meme.
Needless to say, Twitter knocked that pitch out the park.
Even RuPaul got in on the fun.
Thanks Kellyanne, appreciate you.
Her bigger point was about the media.
Do you realize you have people in the media, between their lower third chyrons and what comes out of their mouth, they talk more about Russia than America.
It actually is pretty ridiculous how much the news cycle revolves around Russia these days. It's exhausting, but mostly unavoidable.
Why? Because at a time the when the U.S. government is essentially trying to figure out how and why a foreign adversary tried to get its preferred candidate into the White House, everyone associated with the president has given people every reason to not trust what they say.
I mean, just yesterday, Fox News pressed a spokesman for Vice President Mike Pence on the question of meetings with Russian representatives, and the spokesman danced around the question.
On one hand, it's understandable. You don't want to make definitive statements that you have to answer for later.
On the other hand: dude, WTF?
Anyway, it is what it is, and this is where we are. The president's senior advisor is holding up flashcards convincing America that the president is not an asset to an enemy (and promptly getting laughed at in the process).
