Kellyanne Conway desperately tried to change the subject from Russia on Sunday, only to get humiliated by George Stephanopoulos.
The ABC host confronted Conway about Donald Trump writing the statement his son put out after emails proved that Trump Jr. took a meeting with a Kremlin-linked Russian lawyer in order to receive damaging information from the Russian government to use against Hillary Clinton in the 2016 Election.
“The White House and the president’s lawyer said he wasn’t involved at all,” Stephanopoulos said. “They didn’t tell the truth.”
Indeed, Jay Sekulow told the media that Trump had nothing to do with drafting the statement.
“I wasn’t involved in the statement drafting at all, nor was the President,” Sekulow said. “I’m assuming that was between Mr. Donald Trump Jr., between Don Jr. and his lawyer.”
But it has since been revealed that Trump did help draft the statement and even Sarah Huckabee Sanders confirmed it by trying to portray Trump’s involvement as just a father helping his son.
Conway, of course, tried to shrug it off as no big deal, only to be cut off by Stephanopoulos.
“You know, George, I know there this whole thing about…” Conway started before getting interrupted.
“About telling the truth,” Stephanopoulos said.
And that’s when Conway’s head exploded and she proceeded to rant about Benghazi, Hillary Clinton, and President Obama.
Let’s talk about telling the truth. Let’s talk about a president (Obama) looking Americans in the eye who are still suffering eight years later. If you like your plan you can keep it, if you like your doctor you can keep your doctor. Benghazi happened because of a video.”
Stephanopoulos put the brakes on Conway’s whining and berated her for changing the subject.
“Kellyanne, you’re simply changing the subject,” he said. “You are changing the subject going back to President Obama and Hillary Clinton.”
Stephanopoulos then proceeded to explain the extent of Trump’s lie to Conway.
Don Jr. responded to an email that said he was going to get Russian government information on Hillary Clinton. That was not out during the campaign. That was revealed just in the last several weeks.”
Conway claimed that “nothing” came of that meeting.
But it really doesn’t matter whether Trump got anything from the meeting or not. The fact is that Trump’s campaign met with the Russians inside Trump Tower to get dirt on Hillary Clinton. That’s collusion. Period.
Conway went on to claim that the investigation has resulted in no evidence and insisted that the whole thing is a fabrication designed to take down Trump.

Of course, if Conway wants to talk about investigations that were a real waste of time and went nowhere, Benghazi would be a prime example. Republicans wasted a lot of time and money on their witch hunt against Hillary Clinton, only to clear her of any wrongdoing. Their investigation lasted longer than the 9/11 investigation.
The Russia investigation, meanwhile, has continued to get bigger and has revealed a lot of damning evidence against Trump and his team. It hasn’t come to “nothing.” Undisclosed contacts with Russians have been found, and Trump Jr’s own emails make it clear that at least one major act of collusion took place. The deeper Special Prosecutor Robert Mueller has dug, the more evidence he has found. And he will only find more once he starts digging in Trump’s financials and perhaps Trump’s tax returns.
But all of this begs the question: Why is the media still inviting Conway on to their shows when it’s clear that she is still blatantly lying her ass off?
