(NationalSentinel) The top political advisor to President-elect Donald J. Trump essentially thanked Vice President Joe Biden for helping usher her boss into office with years of failed Democratic policies.
Kellyanne Conway’s remarks came on the heels of some insulting statements made by Biden in a recent interview on PBS that almost nobody saw.
“Grow up, Donald. Grow up. Time to be an adult. You’re president. You gotta do something,” he told interviewer Judy Woodruff.
In her response on Fox News, Conway responded to Biden’s arrogant condescension:
It’s really disappointing to hear the vice president speak that way, not surprising. To what is he referring, the fact that his Democratic party under his watch, he’s been the number two guy in the country and in the Democratic Party, they lost over 1,000 state legislative seats, they lost over a dozen governorships, a dozen senators, they lost 68 House seats since he got there. They lost the election in 2010, 2014, 2016. In large part because of the policies he supports like the awful unaffordable, inaccessible care act, Obamacare.
Like these draconian taxes and regulations on small businesses and the rest of us, like all these bad trade deals that never benefited American workers. And Donald Trump who came in — without Joe Biden and Barack Obama, there may have never been a president Trump and a Vice President Mike Pence. So I’d like to say to the vice president, thanks for the non-advice. We’ll ignore the insults and the slights. We very much appreciate all the failed policies that allowed us to usher in a new era of hopefulness and buoyancy, fresh blood and excitement in this administration. You’re now going to see president Donald Trump, very quickly, deliver and perform and be accountable to results like as he has always done in his wildly successful business. It’s going to be a brand new, I think, not just the tone but the content, in Washington.
Next, Fox News played a clip of President Obama sarcastically challenging Republicans to come up with a better plan than his failed health care scheme, which has caused insurance premiums and out-of-pocket costs to skyrocket for tens of millions of Americans, leaving them essentially with coverage in name only.
Conway said the president’s sarcasm and insults were “not very becoming,” and noted that although Obama claimed he sought Republican counsel in 2009 when he was proposing what would become “Obamacare,” that was not at all the case. Then, and since then, the president has had no interest at all in GOP alternatives, which mostly center around free-market solutions that allow the health insurance and medical industries find solutions that work best for patients, such as competition.
“His party owns it,” Conway said of Democrats and the Affordable Care Act, adding that Americans now have less access, fewer health care choices and much higher costs, as do businesses.
