Are you sitting down? You might just agee with White House adviser Kellyanne Conway. She said today on CNN‘s State of the Union,
“In this case, you have contemporaneous police reports, you have women speaking to the FBI under threat of perjury … you have photographs, and when you look at all of that pulled together, Rob Porter did the right thing by resigning.
I have no reason not to believe the women.“
It’s a double negative but still, Conway’s comments are the opposite of what her boss tweeted Saturday,
“Peoples lives are being shattered and destroyed by a mere allegation. … There is no recovery for someone falsely accused – life and career are gone. Is there no such thing any longer as Due Process?“
White House legislative affairs director Marc Short echoed Conway’s comments telling NBC‘s Meet the Press today.
“In talking with the President, I think he’s saddened about what happened with Rob. I think he’s very disturbed by it, and I think he’s very disappointed. I think he believes that the resignation was appropriate.“
Conway said Trump is “very disturbed” by Porter’s alleged behavior too.
Well, again I would agree with both of them. He IS disturbed. SO, Let’s ask Conway a follow-up question, if she believes Trump’s accusers too?
