Sorry if I'm spoiling the fun.
Here's the thing. Many of us tend to see people as a merged blend of their physical appearance and their inner character, kind of mushed together and not clearly distinguishable. At least I do. And that's what makes Conway so uniquely hideous. On an attractiveness scale of 1-10, her score is "irredeemably repulsive" from any possible perspective that I can summon.

What I'm saying is, the salt vampire comparison is too kind. The idea that such a person could have an attractive inner character -- could be insightful, thoughtful, and kind -- is a non-starter because such a person wouldn't have that vacant hypocritical plastered-on grin or decorate herself in such a repulsive way, or be such a shameless opportunist or incorrigible liar. It's all a package. And the package looks hideously reptilian.

You guys are talkin' about Clot's special lady. You'd better back off or he's going to show you some of that kung fu he knows.

Before we get any misunderstandings;


1. Kellyanne Conway is a repulsive human being.
I just believe we should ridicule her for the shitty lies she sprouts, not for her looks.

2. Trump is a clown.

3. Everybody who voted for his orangeness...
Let's just say every minute you add one to your ranks.

The link I gave earlier in the thread pretty much says it all in terms of her lack of ethics, honesty, integrity, or veracity of anything that comes out of her mouth.

But I don't think that it's sexist or superficial to go after her haggard appearance which is no doubt at least partly the result of internalizing the guilt. If she were beautiful on the inside I doubt too many would enjoy attacking her appearance.

Such as it is though... in the right light she kind of resembles Bill Clinton in drag.

As much scorn and ridicule that Kellyanne and Sean Spicer get thrown at them, they seem to think unswerving loyalty to Trump will somehow benefit them. How does Trump manage to find such willing stooges? Money? Prestige? Ability to attract the willingly stupid?

People have been mocking the worthless piece of shit Republicans and Nazis cheer for because of his looks (the ridiculous hair, the tiny hands, the vanity tan, his poor dress sense) for months with no problem, I don't see why mocking the scum who work for him in a similar manner is any different.

Cheap bourbon for Bannon and all the salt Conway can absorb.

Yes.

Quote:
President Trump has chosen the husband of White House advisor Kellyanne Conway to head the civil division of the Department of Justice, the Wall Street Journal reported.

George Conway was chosen to head the office that has responsibility for defending the administration's proposed travel ban and defending lawsuits filed against the administration, the newspaper reported.
They aren't his stooges. He is theirs.

Good for him! He sees it as a positive step in his life and he's actively trying to control and manage his life so he can be happier.
I just feel badly that... forever forward... people are going to link him with Kellyanne Conway....

"Oh Hells No! No...no... no... Jesus Fucking Christ I'll smoke a joint if I have to ... anything... anything dear lord.... anything but That...!"

The Wicked Witch of the Westwing. Trump is a member of the Lollipop Guild (he's the one on the right in this early photo).
