Barf BagWelcome to Barf Bag, a daily politics roundup to help you sort through the chaotic Trumpian news cycle.
She’s probably not alone!
Here’s all the shit we couldn’t cover today:
- Kellyanne Conway had a mini-meltdown on CNN today when Wolf Blitzer asked her to comment on statements that her husband, noted Trump hater George Conway, made about Wednesday’s impeachment hearing. “Respectfully, I think a bunch of gossip girls and opinion-making and pontificating is not the way I looked at CNN,” Kellyanne said, before waxing poetic about the lost grandeur of the cable network. Kellyanne continues to act affronted by the fact that people dare ask her loudmouth husband, journalists continue to ask her about her loudmouth husband, and loudmouth husband continues to have a loud mouth. The circle of life.
