Shocker: Kellyanne Conway, Counselor to President Donald Trump, believes the Russia probe is media and Democratic-driven hype.
And Wednesday night on Hannity, the White House Counselor came up with a snappy turn of phrase to try to define, and ultimately, undermine it.
“The media and the Democrats have this Russian concussion,” Conway said. “And they have lost muscle memory to be able function in any other way to talk about anything he’s doing.”
A CBS News poll released Monday found that 63 percent of Americans disapprove of the President’s handling of the Russia investigation, compared to just 28 percent who approve. The same poll found that 39 percent believe the investigations are “a critical issue of national security.” Thirty-two percent dismiss the probe as “a political distraction that should be put aside.” And 27 percent say it’s “serious, but not as serious as other issues.”
“People are not talking about Russia,” Conway said. “You have the Democrats talking about Russia. You have Donald Trump and the Republicans talking about America. I’ll take America talk any day over Russia talk.”
