The queen of alternative facts is back at it: Kellyanne Conway appeared on ABC’s This Week to speak with host Martha Raddatz. Raddatz wanted to talk about the allegations surrounding Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore, and refused to let Conway dance around her questions.
Moore is facing some serious allegations of sexual misconduct, including having sexual contact with a fourteen year-old girl. Maddatz asked Conway if she believed the accusations that have been raised against Moore.
She received a classic Kellyanne response:
“The conduct described should disqualify anyone from serving in public office and I’ll stand by that. The president and others in the Republican Party have made clear that if the allegations are true, this man should step aside.”
So, essentially, no answer.
Too often, reporters leave it at that when dealing with Conway. Maddatz refused to let it go:
“What does it take for you to say, ‘He should resign’?. What has to happen before you would advise the president to say, ‘Roy Moore should step aside’?”
Conway again responds that would only happen if the allegations are true. Moore has denied any misconduct. Raddatz finally decides she is sick of Conway’s non-responses, telling her:
“If, if if! Where does the ‘if’ lie?”
When Conway says that the alleged victims should have a chance to speak up, Maddatz angrily tells her:
“I think they did speak up.“
Conway has made quite a name for herself by not answering questions with any sort of substance. Her ridiculous responses and mental gymnastics have made her one of the most mockable members of President Donald Trump’s team.
The popular Republican refrain surrounding Roy Moore is to suggest he step aside if the allegations are true. Four women have accused Moore of inappropriate behavior, with dozens of women corroborating their stories.
