Kellyanne Wants Media to Fire People Critical of Trump
Justin Baragona, Mediaite, January 29th, 2017
After Fox News Sunday’s Chris Wallace grilled Kellyanne Conway on Steve Bannon’s condemnation of the media, asking her is she could see how offensive it was, the veteran pollster went on a rant about how media outlets need to start firing people who criticized Pres Trump, asking rhetorically:
Who is cleaning house? Which one is going to be the first network to get rid of these people, who said things that were just not true? Talk about fake news! Talk about alternative facts!
After complaining about how her coining the term “alternative facts” was the only thing that attention from her Sunday show appearances last week, Conway once again called for networks to can pundits and commentators who have “talked smack” about Trump:
Not one network person has been let go! Not one silly political analyst and pundit who talked smack all day long about Donald Trump has been let go! They’re on panels every Sunday!

Reince Priebus suggests Trump could expand country list under travel ban

These seven were banned under executive order since they had already been codified and identified as presenting a terrorist threat by the Obama White House and Congress. This is all done for the protection of Pindostanis. Pres Trump is not willing to get this wrong.
