Queen of Diamonds: “Alternative Facts” Kelly Anne Conway

  • 2017: Promoting Trump’s false ‘voting fraud’ narrative: “Well, I won’t reveal private conversations with the president, Judy, but I will tell you that what the president is talking about is registration and voter rolls. He knows there are dead people registered, there are illegal people registered, and he wants to get to the bottom of that without an election on the horizon.   
  • 2021: “Alternative facts”: Conway praised Trump for his response to the U.S. Capitol riots.
  • The very next day: President Trump appoints Conway to the board of visitors of the U.S. Air Force Academy.  

“You’ve got two camps right now of people who should speak out and haven’t. The first camp knows Trump is a dangerous and vindictive man but doesn’t want to upend their lives by provoking his ire. The second camp is more nakedly transactional.”

– Miles Taylor, former chief of staff at the Department of Homeland Security in the Trump administration
