Trump Campaign Manager Gets Stumped On Air When Fact Checked Over Donald’s Lawsuits

‘That means your candidate is guilty of an awful lot of things, no?’

Kellyanne Conway is in a tough position. Running any presidential campaign is an impossible, often thankless, job. If you’re successful, your boss gets all the credit and gets to be president. If you fail, you often take the blame for mistakes made along the way. Now, multiply that by a million and you get a sense of what it must be like on top of all that to spend most of your time in front of the media trying to defend Donald Trump.


During an appearance on Anderson Cooper 360, Conway was engaging with the CNN host in a discussion about Bill Clinton’s past sexual scandals.

“He settled a sexual harassment case for $850,000 with Paula Jones in 1998. The last time I didn’t sexually harass someone here at the campaign I didn’t pay him,” Conway said with an air of confidence, trying to put some context into the leaked videos showing Trump making disparaging comments about women.

However, Cooper came right back, challenging Conway on the assertion that settling a lawsuit without admitting guilt nonetheless implies guilt. After all, that’s what Trump has literally done dozens of times (and bragged about) over his decades-long career in real estate.

“Are you saying, implying that settling a lawsuit is implying guilt? Because, if so, that means your candidate is guilty of an awful lot of things, no?” Cooper asked.

Clearly stumped, Conway paused for several seconds before mumbling, “for that, really?” She quickly then tried flipping the conversation back to Clinton but in the moment it was clear: throwing stones is not a good idea when you’re representing a candidate with the biggest glass house in politics.

McDonalds sells a lot of coffee. Over a billion cups a year, to be exact. All that coffee leads to a lot of productive mornings, but it also leads to a lot of waste. Each year, millions of pounds of coffee chaff (the skin of the coffee beans that comes off during roasting) ends up getting turned into mulch. Some coffee chaff just gets burned, leading to an increase in CO2.

Now, that chaff is going to get turned into car parts. Ford is incorporating coffee chaff from McDonalds coffee into the headlamps of some cars. Ford has been using plastic and talc to make its headlamps, but this new process will reduce the reliance on talc, a non-renewable mineral. The chaff is heated to high temperatures under low oxygen and mixed with plastic and other additives. The bioplastic can then be formed into shapes.

For over 20 years, our country has perceived itself as more divided than united, and it's not getting better. Right after the 2016 election, a poll conducted by Gallup found that 77% of Americans felt the country was divided on the most important values, a record high.

The percentage of Americans who agree that we disagree got higher. During the 2018 mid-term elections, a poll conducted by NBC News/Wall Street Journal found that 80% of Americans felt the nation was "mainly" or "totally" divided.

We head into the 2020 presidential election more divided than ever. A new poll from USA Today found that nine out of ten respondents felt it was important to do something about the conflict in our country. We can't keep on living like this forever.

The problem with American Sign Language (ASL) is that over 500,000 people in the U.S. use it, but the country has over 330 million people.

So for those with hearing loss, the chances of coming into contact with someone who uses the language are rare. Especially outside of the deaf community.
