A penchant for self-pity and a demand that others be held to standards to which they refuse to hold themselves are identifying markers of the Trump administration so far.
Kellyanne Conway, the Trump counselor and infamous spokeswoman for “alternative facts”, is blaming “haters” for all of the flack she’s getting for making up a fictional massacre to justify Trump’s Muslim ban.
So that’s a sorry, not sorry if you’re keeping track, which CNN seems to be. Conway intends to rock on with her alternative facts, and bury herself in self-pity over the haters, aka, people who value reality.
Any attempt to adhere to reality is seen as a personal attack by Trump conservatives.
Riddle me this, what’s the difference between calling a group of people “deplorables” versus “haters”? If the first was wrong, why isn’t the second.
