White House counselor Kellyanne Conway chose an unusual way to celebrate Martin Luther King, Jr. Day. She said that he would have been against Donald Trump‘s impeachment.
In an interview with NBC News on Monday, Conway said, “I don’t think it was within Dr. King’s vision to have Americans dragged through a process where the president is not going to be removed from office, is not being charged with bribery, extortion, high crimes or misdemeanors. And I think that anybody who cares about ‘and justice for all’ on today or any day of the year will appreciate the fact that the president now will have a full-throttle defense on the facts, and everybody should have that.” (USA Today)
- Conway was responding to a question about how Trump planned to observe Monday’s holiday.
- Trump and VP Mike Pence did make a brief visit to the King memorial.
- That’s ridiculous for Conway to presume to know what Dr. King would think and to claim that Trump is about unity.
- Happy birthday, Kellyanne. You’re looking good at 53!
