Like that lobster roll you bought at a gas station that one time, White House Counselor Kellyanne Conway is the gift that keeps on giving, even if you don’t want her to.
In an interview on Sunday’s “This Week” with George Stephanopoulos, Conway ran through some of her greatest hits while also dropping a hot new Song of the Stupid Summer for fans to groove to on the golf course.
There was Conway’s classic wall of Obama when confronted with the White House’s lies about Donald Trump’s participation in a cover-up of his campaign’s Russian collusion meeting, and her more recent hit, that millions of Trump fans are more important than the stupid rule of law.
But Conway really sizzled when she rebutted the Russia investigation by pointing out that she had never personally conspired with Russia on television — or at least not on ABC:
