CNN's Cuomo Invites Kellyanne Conway To A Gish Gallop Debacle

 Gish Gallop
... is a technique, named after the creationist Duane Gish who employed it, whereby someone argues a cause by hurling as many different half-truths and no-truths into a very short space of time so that their opponent cannot hope to combat each point in real time. 

Kellyanne Conway Gish Gallops Chris Cuomo
Last night CNN's Chris Cuomo solidified my belief many TV news production teams and on-air hosts are about ratings and little more. Cuomo has a tendency to seek and book conservative talking heads on his Prime Time show for his version of the CNN on-air guest combat model. The model has grown tiring and trite. Viewers know that the liberal guest will go Left; they also know the conservative guest will go Right. While biased I must state the conservative guest are more often than not GOP operatives who serve their wallets via lucrative CNN paychecks as well as Trump talking heads who serve their leader via spewing garbage.

What follows is a serious of video to make a case, Cuomo should avoid offering platforms for highly paid liars. That mission is well served by Fox News and Sinclair broadcasting along with many right-wing radio hosts.  

First a piece of Cuomo with Conway. The interview ran for 39 minutes and at times was outright excruciating in its silliness. There were moments when the host succumbs to Conway's slick offensive assertions he actually defended himself as if trying to wave of the wind from his face while standing in a Cat 5 hurricane. 
Huffington Post published a piece earlier today with Conway's husband, longtime Trump critic, seems to do what Cuomo should have done early in his 39-minute debacle.

And, Cuomo continued with the ridiculous.
After Cuomo allowed 39 minutes of a professional Gish Gallop employed by a person who lies form the moment he awakens until he lays down his iPhone in the wee hours, Don Lemon follow Cuomo's Prime Time with the most apropos question of 2018.  "Why?"

What follows is a prime example of TV journalism as it polices itself with necessary questioning of what might be a cheap ratings trick via Cuomo.  He obviously wants to have more conservative viewers during his time slot. But at what cost? Why offer a platform to a documented liar who works for a pathological liar whose shared mission is to pull the wool over the minds of certain segments of the population. 

Watch as Lemon's disbelieving nonverbals regarding Cuomo's comments. The Prime Time host's remarks about playing the victim to show core values of Trumpism is pure malarkey. "......they attack me!" They attack everyone other than Trumps family and Cuomo offering himself up on a metaphoric guillotine is pure bunk and not healthyTV news.

Yes, Conway performed well for Trump while Cuomo ...well...

As Trump's World Turns: CNN Chris Cuomo's Trainwreck With Trump's Conway

Here We Find Cause To Avoid Trump Media Presstitutes

What follows is eight minutes of ugly brought to you by KellyAnne Conway, CNN and, me for offering the video to you. Yet it is important to watch propagandist work to insinuate Trump into your mind. Conway came on Cuomo's show hell bent of doing what she is handsomely paid to do: distract, deflect, purvey alternate facts (as she named it), and end with a flurry of bull regarding Trump's (so-called) economy. You will notice Conway is most-assuredly taking direction from off-camera and she frequently visits the screen of her phone or IPad for ditection and counter-points.

While points of view will prevail on how the on-camera battle ended and how it influenced Conway's Gish Gallop attempt was obvious and seemingly unprofessional. 

Recall she will close her air-time as do all Trump talking heads with a flash barrage about the Trump economy. Trump would not have said economy if it were not a reality handed to him in January 2017, via President Obama.

Just a few reminders that we could not have the current economy without the past nine years post the Obama inauguration.

Trumps Presstitutes, Polls And Demagogues

Image may contain: 1 person
How many professional talking heads would allow this to become part of the camera archive? Stage presence and awareness helps with credibility.

Did Trump's White House Press Secretary actually appear on ABC news (this morning) and use Rassmussen daily polling as a tool to facilitate a comment about Trump's job approval. Moreover, she may have also used Rassmussens polling data for that ever-present conservative reach to compare against former President Obama' ratings during the same period.

The idiotic non-credible assertion comes near the 4:43-minute mark of the following video. It is important to keep in mind, Huckabee's number one viewer is Donald Trump himself. Every word she utters is either blessed by Trump or spoken to pleases the narcissistic president.

In 2016, Five-Thirty Eight ran an exhaustive list of national political polling and data based indications of the poll's political lean (red and blue bars to the far right of the poll table). 2016 Five Thirty-Eight Poll, here. Of course, Rassmussen was shown to be one of the most conservative-leaning polls. 

Huckabee echoed early April comments from her boss.

Thank you to Rasmussen for the honest polling. Just hit 50%, which is higher than Cheatin’ Obama at the same time in his Administration. 6:08 AM - 3 Apr 2018
In early April Rassmussen did show Trump's approval rating at 50% and during the same period in 2010 Obama's rating via Rassmussen.was 46 percent. Fair as long as readers and listeners consider the real story of Rassmussen. The poling authority is a right-wing major leaning poll and it is reported Scott Rassmussen is a Trump supporter with a history of total contempt for then President Obama.  

The Washington Post on April 3rd offered a good analysis of Trump's polling mantra with a few critical words regarding Rassmussen.

Now take a look at how Huckabee Sanders boss used her comments (probably inserted by Trump and his team) as a basis to feed daily Twitter fodder to his ravishing hordes of supporters

Just hit 50% in the Rasmussen Poll, much higher than President Obama at same point. With all of the phony stories and Fake News, it’s hard to believe! Thank you America, we are doing Great Things. 10:44 AM - Apr 15, 2018
All presidential and gubernatorial administrations employ layers upon layers of information purveyors. Political leaning Right and Left join in a form of Venn Diagram when their mission is promulgating information and disseminating "friendly or influencing" propaganda. The only difference in the messages is the ultimate impact of the message.

Follow the quotes below to see how messaging and communications has left a scar on the history of humankind.

"If you repeat a lie often enough, people will believe it, and you will even come to believe it yourself."
"There was no point in seeking to convert the intellectuals. For intellectuals would never be converted and would anyway always yield to the **er, and this will always be "the man in the street." Arguments must therefore be crude, clear and forcible, and appeal to emotions and instincts, not the intellect. Truth was unimportant and entirely subordinate to tactics and psychology."
"Propaganda works best when those who are being manipulated  are confident they are acting on their own free will."
"Propaganda must facilitate the displacement of aggression by specifying the targets for hatred."
"...the rank and file are usually much more primitive than we imagine. Propaganda must therefore always be essentially simple and repetitious."
"The most brilliant propagandist technique will yield no success unless one fundamental principle is borne in mind constantly - it must confine itself to a few points and repeat them over and over."
"It is the absolute right of the State to supervise the formation of public opinion."
"We shall reach our goal, when we have the power to laugh as we destroy, as we smash, whatever was sacred to us as tradition, as education, and as human affection."
*All* quotes from Joseph Goebbels, Minister of Propaganda for Adolph Hitler
There isn't an administration in modern US history which needs and employs demagogue presstitutes compared to Trump's purveyors. From the former Press Secretary, Sean Spicer, through the current Huckabee Sanders and all employees of the White House Communications Office as well as a cadre of television and radio operatives, Trump's "presstitute "  payroll has to be over-the-top.

Presstitute (Dictionary dot com)
Slang: Disparaging. 
1.a journalist or media source whose news coverage is considered to be inappropriately influenced by business interests, political motives, etc.
If you need another level of presstitute, how about one who formerly worked for Ted Cruz during the 2016 primary campaigns and who disparage Trump-like no other. Watch Kellyanne Conway in the following very brief Now and Then demagoguery.

After the Trump than and the Trump now oratory, watch As CNN's Chris Cuomo attempted to interview the former Ted Cruz talking head about matters related to Trump and Asst. DOJ Head Rosenstein.   The interview is a long view, but as I always state being an HIV (high Information voter) is work.

The Daily GOP Ignominious: KellyAnne Conway (Alternative Facts?)

Forty-four seconds in US History presented by the Trump Administration's number one presstitute, the former Ted Cruz presstitute, KellyAnne Conway. Alternative Facts Kelly.

Yes, you recall that 44 seconds of pure credibility killing drivel from the White House. I should qualify credibility killing for rational Americans who have avoided the severe psychological infestation of Trumpism.

Apparently earlier today, Conway appeared on CNN's New Day and jousted with a show host.  Conway was fully equipped and loaded with alternative facts.

Keith Boykin, Democrat Party consultant, and strategist, Twitter post.
Kellyanne Conway: “The president has tremendous moral standards.” 
Trump: “I did try and fuck her. She was married...I moved on her like a bitch...I just start kissing them... And when you’re a star, they let you do it...Grab ‘em by the pussy.”
It seems the occupants of the White House have moral values uncommon to denizens of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.

"Trump Not A Liar" (Arguable)

Image result for goebbels quotes

We appreciate the life of the "presstittue." We know they are handsomely paid and will say anything to ensure that check is direct deposited. They do not care one iota about the outcome of their messages, just how well they offer up their deliverables.
Trump has a cadre of presstitutes which rivals any administration in my lifetime'
Sean (crowd size) Spicer
KellyAnne (alternative facts) Conway
And now.....

We beg to differ!  Image result for goebbels quotes

Trump's Lies vs. Your Brain - POLITICO Magazine

Millions across American know Donald Trump as a showman, and carnival barker. He also has a reputation of a businessman and for many a reputation as a pathological serial liar. The fact that he employs willing liars ( presstitutes) to carry his messages isn't a surprise. The fact that he so often sends his hired lairs out to feed Americans such unfathomable and ridiculous lies is a bit surprising.

Life is such that living with an insulting aura simply does not bode well for one's quality of life. When the insulting aura is so prominent in our daily lives the low quality of life exudes into our lives.

Trumpism: The KIng's Number One Talking Head; Robert Reich On The Danger

kellyanne conway pathological liar: Her ability and those of many of Trump's people to utter complete nonsense with complete confidence,and then broadly smile is remarkable.:

2 + 2 = 5 · ‎Alternative facts (law) · ‎Orwellian · ‎Distinction without a difference

"Alternative facts" is a phrase used by U.S. Counselor to the President Kellyanne Conway during a Meet the Press interview on January 22, 2017, in which she defended White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer's false statement about the attendance at Donald Trump's inauguration as President of the United States. When pressed during the interview with Chuck Todd

By now, regardless if your political persuasion preference or inclination, you know Donald Trump has major issues. He is unfit for any level of acuity in governmental leadership. He is impetus and erratic. He has major issues with honesty, in fact over 360 plus statement reviews via Politifact he was found to lie (in various degrees) over 81% of the time. He doesn't seem capable of making decisions with good outcomes. The latter is a serious problem as he exercises poor judgement regarding advisers, staff, and counselors seems truly pathetic. I have kept one Trumpism off to the side: hiring choices.

Trump as a serial liar with a pathology which facilitates his lying, you have to know he employs like personalities to carry his messages. A point driven home with his employment of Kellyanne Conway after the Cruz campaign found a circular path down the toilet of GOP campaign politics.  
Media Matters: Conway on Trump for Cruz

Mediaite: Trump Tax Returns

Trumpism is surely fraying at the seams when noted MSNBC conservative Joe Scarborough and his sidekick Mika Brzezinski via their production team spoke openly about Conway's lies, and her closet contempt for Trump.

Bursting at the seams and an indication the phoniness of Trumpism.  

Let's take a quick run through another area of Trumpism via liberal former Bill Clinton era Department of Labor Head, Robert Reich. 

Question:  Have you ever read of or know a tyrant who didn't employ skillful communication purveyors?

The Daily GOP Ignominious: Cronyism Coverups, Strategic Firings and Pressitutes

While not related to the topic to come, the following should have been a key indication the lack of humanity and class imbued in Donald Trump.  You know the backstory. 

I have recently immersed in a point-counterpoint argument with a conservative about The mass firing of 46 Democrat appointed federal prosecutor's. Of course, I knew heading in to the retort laced discussion, the other party's mind was covered with conservative shading. Thus, any discussion would be a waste of time and would end with nothing accomplished. One point int he discussion, the conservative stated: "Well, DEM did it also." 

A matter of fact and inarguable. However, the scope of mass firings with associated ripping the foundation away from many legal proceedings, is unprecedented. Last night many of you watched as MSNBC's Rachel Maddow again offered prospects regarding the mass firing via focus on the New York state prosecutor who refused to resign. A prosecutor who would have prosecutorial authority over matters of Trump Tower and other banking related proceedings. Watch.

Lawrence O'Donnell also reported and discussed the firing of the New York prosecutor.

There was yet another MSNBC segment which, I feel, shows the level of manipulation, subterfuge and malfeasance inherent in Trump and all associated matters.

Imagine the number of Americas who actually bought Trump and the Reince Priebus strategy to win the US Presidency via "Clinton's email". While there was much more unfathomable malfeasance associated with RNC strategy, including Putin cyber warfare units and Assange, lets allow Maddow to run through another example of the dangers of Donald Trump.

A necessary component of Trumpism and its psyche grip on the nation requires a set of "presstitutes" who for a dollar will lie about the tie of day while standing directly in front of Britain's Big Ben. The meme reference to Bowling Green relates to a non-existent claim of an Islamic Terrorist massacre in Bowling Green Kentucky. 

MICROWAVE personal privacy invasion.

The president's number one presstitute, Spicer and a job which is a bridge too far. When a president follows far right social media into a fantasy world of lies and innuendo, the presstitute is left to speak to his mess.
The sadness of it all.

The shame of it all.
