Kellyanne Conway’s Husband and Trump Just Had a ‘Tweet War’

Donald Trump and the White House counselor and professional liar Kellyanne Conway’s husband fought on Twitter on Wednesday.

“‘Trump could be the most honest president in modern history. When you look at the real barometer of presidential truthfulness, which is promise keeping, he is probably the most honest president in American history. He’s done exactly what he said he would do.’ Marc Thiessen, WPost,” Donald Trump tweeted on Wednesday morning, wildly misrepresenting the piece and missing its meaning completely.

Mark Thiessen is a former speechwriter for the George W. Bush administration.

George Conway, a frequent critic of the terrible president, fired back using the next sentence from Mark Thiessen’s piece.

“In the second sentence of the same opinion piece, Thiessen also said, ‘Don’t get me wrong, Trump lies all the time,'” Conway pointed out.

In his head-scratcher of a piece called, “Trump could be the most honest president in modern history,” Mark Thiessen unconvincingly argues that the president is actually “a paragon of honesty” in terms of doing what he vowed to do.

Thiessen admits that Donald Trump inflates the importance of what he does — such as bragging dishonestly that he helped enact the “biggest tax cuts and reforms in American history.”

Mark Thiessen had the nerve to cite Donald Trump’s disastrous promise to relocate the American Embassy to Jerusalem, which several former presidents promised but never did out of what has proven to be wisdom, as the Israelis ended up massacring dozens of Palestinian protestors who were demonstrating against the move.

Twitter users came up with some clever rebuttals and produced plenty of examples of unkept promises in order to counteract Thiessen’s lies. One Twitter user wrote a comprehensive list: “One wonders if there are any promises he hasn’t kept? I mean, aside from Mexico paying for a wall, lower healthcare costs and universal coverage, foreign lobbyist campaign contribution ban, lowering drug costs, balancing the budget, no vacations, releasing tax returns, etc.”

Calling a liar an honest man does not make it so.
