Appearing on MSNBC Monday afternoon, the campaign manager for GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump defended the candidate over comments he made Saturday when he threatened to sue the women who have accused him of assaulting them. Speaking in Gettysburg on Saturday, Trump put forth his plans for the first 100 days of his presidency with a series of policy proposals, only to take a odd turn by stating he also plans to sue the “liars” who have come forward since the Access Hollywood tape was released.
“When it comes to the presidential election, there’s this misconception that everything is fair game. Contrary to popular belief, that’s just not the case,” Conway argued. “You don’t go after someone’s family, after someone’s integrity, and if you do, you better apologize for it and hope that the other side doesn’t sue you. Because they have a right to do that, you know. They have a right to seek out justice by any means necessary and very often that’s not a pretty picture. And this is not a threat, but Donald Trump is a man who knows how to protect himself and that which belongs to him.”
She continued vigorously, “And let’s analyze for a second what’s being said about Donald Trump in the media as of late. He’s being called a sexual predator, a molester, an abuser and a whole other plethora of negative and insulting terms and names. Yet, on the other hand, there are very few arguments said about his businesses and his companies. And what does that mean? That means that nobody can hit him where he’s strongest, but instead, they target his integrity and his good name. What’s being said about Donald Trump today is nothing more than a flawlessly organized smear campaign.”
His campaign manager then revealed that a great number of lawsuits are being prepared “even as we speak,” many of which will target the “organizers” of Trump’s smear campaign, including his counter-candidate, Hillary Clinton. “I’m not supposed to be talking about this, but Donald Trump is not the kind of man you insult only to have him forget about it. He knows how to hold a grudge, which is why it’s never a good idea to get on his bad side. Now, Hillary Clinton has done that on a number of different occasions and she will pay the price for slander.”
Conway also argued that the Republican presidential candidate aims to sue the Democratic presidential candidate on the basis of “bringing dirt into the election,” meaning that Donald Trump actually believes that Hillary Clinton orchestrated the entire media campaign against him. “And you know how he knows that’s true? Because the only reason she did it is so people would turn their attention to him, while she gets away scot-free and doesn’t get punished for accepting billions of bribe money from her newfound Middle-Eastern friends.”
“She’s a lot like Mussolini, who used the same tactic in pre-World War II Italy,” she added. “Generations of Italians suffered during his regime, and many of them couldn’t survive any other way except by emigrating here. And Hillary Clinton is now doing the exact same thing. Only trouble is – America IS the promise land. Where are generations of young Americans supposed to emigrate to once she ruins this country the way Mussolini ruined Italy?” she concluded.
