Conway: Clinton Couldn't Make History So She Makes Excuses

Hillary Clinton “failed to make history and she succeeds at making excuses,” a top adviser to President Trump declared Thursday.

According to The Hill, White House counselor Kellyanne Conway blasted the 2016 Democratic presidential nominee’s soon-to-be-released book about the election. “That is emblematic of a Democratic Party now that is so bereft of ideas and issues that they have to then play armchair psychiatrists,” Conway said on “Fox & Friends.” She continued: “We’ve got Hillary Clinton, who Democrats are whispering all over this town, they wish that this book didn’t happen, that she would just either make herself useful or fade out of the limelight.”

The adviser was responding to Clinton’s criticism of Trump in the book, parts of which the losing candidate read aloud Wednesday on MSNBC. Recalling last year’s second presidential debate in St. Louis, when Trump stood close behind his opponent as she spoke, Clinton said the experience made her “skin crawl.” She asks in the book: “What would you do? Do you stay calm, keep smiling and carry on as if he weren’t repeatedly invading your space? Or do you turn, look him in the eye and say loudly and clearly, ‘Back up, you creep. Get away from me. I know you love to intimidate women, but you can’t intimidate me, so back up.’”

Conway argued that Clinton should use her fame and political influence to influence government policies. “Where is her bipartisan effort to try to help with infrastructure, meaningful tax reform or the opioid crisis that I work on in the building behind me every single day?” the adviser asked. “We haven’t heard from her.”

Politico reported that during the Fox News interview, Conway used the term “armchair psychologist” a second time in referring to former National Intelligence Director James Clapper. The Obama administration official proclaimed the previous day on CNN that Trump was unfit for the presidency and could not be trusted with the nation’s nuclear codes. “How much longer does the country have to, to borrow a phrase, endure this nightmare?” Clapper asked. Conway claimed the comments went “way over the line.” She went on to blast the news media for giving air time to Trump’s critics.

According to The Washington Post, Clapper described the president’s Tuesday night speech in Phoenix as “downright scary and disturbing.” The former spy chief added: “I really question his ability to be — his fitness to be — in this office. I also am beginning to wonder about his motivation for it — maybe he is looking for a way out.”

Trump, in his campaign rally-style speech, said he would shut down the government if Congress refuses to fund construction of a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border. Republican leaders on Capitol Hill indicated they will oppose their party’s president if he attempts to follow through with the threat. Trump hinted during his off-teleprompter rant that he plans to grant a presidential pardon to former Sheriff Joe Arpaio, who was recently convicted of violating a court order concerning his department’s treatment of Latinos.
