Kellyanne Conway Is Very Confused About How Free Money Helps Businesses

Let our journalists help you make sense of the noise: Subscribe to the Mother Jones Daily newsletter and get a recap of news that matters.


Kellyanne Conway sure has taken to the job of idiot Trump apologist with gusto:

Gee, if a for-profit business gets someone else to pay its fine, how on earth does that help the business? It’s so confusing. This Fahrenthold guy is just obsessed with Donald Trump. What’s his deal, anyway?

Oh, and Donald writes secret checks to help people all the time. He’s just too shy to let anyone know about it.

It’s just lie after lie after lie. But maybe I’m being unfair. If you’ve been the recipient of Trump’s secret largesse to ordinary folks, please let me know. It’s a little surprising that none of you have come forward over the past year, but bygones. Now’s your chance.
