‘Morning Joe’ Hosts: Conway Said She Needed A Shower After Defending Trump

The co-hosts of MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” Mika Brzezinski and Joe Scarborough, claimed on Monday that senior White House adviser Kellyanne Conway used to say she needed a shower after defending Donald Trump on air.

“This is a woman, by the way, who came on our show during the campaign and would shill for Trump in extensive fashion,” Brzezinski said. “And then she would get off the air, the camera would be turned off, the microphone would be taken off and she would say, ‘Blech, I need to take a shower,’ because she disliked her candidate so much.”

“And also said, it was very interesting, also said that, ‘This is just like my summer in Europe,'” Scarborough said.

“I’m just doing this for the money,” Brzezinski interjected.

“‘I’ll be off this soon.’ I don’t know that she ever said ‘I’m doing this for the money,'” Scarborough said. “But she said, ‘This is just my summer vacation, my summer in Europe and basically I’m just going to get through this.'”

“‘But first I have to take a shower because it feels so dirty to be saying what I’m saying.’ I guess she’s just used to it now,” Brzezinski said.

Of course they knew she was lying all along.  Everyone know that all of them are lying, either Conway-style -- brazen, fuck-you lies in the face of incontrovertible reality -- or the greasy, craven Both Sides Do It lies that make the brazen, fuck-you lies possible in the first place.

Of course they knew she was lying, but they didn't let us in on the Worst Kept Secret in Christendom until it was far, far too late.  Because even though it's a scam, it's a scam with certain rules and formalities, one of which is that game recognizes game, as the kids say.  You are free to fleece the chumps right down to their Ronald Reagan Underoos, but you don't fuck up another playa's play,  

And that is what's happening with President Stupid and his myrmidons like Conway.  Their bullshit has become so relentlessly and surreally ludicrous that is now personally embarrassing to former Trump shills like Scarborough and Brzezinsk: it has jumped an unspoken but universally honored median strip between Shit and Shinola, which is crippling their corporate brand and threatening to fuck up the entire, unholy, incestuous game of collusion between wildly overpaid corporate muppets like Scarborough and Brzezinski, and get-the-cash-up-front political liars like Conway.

A game whose parameters the late, great Powers Boothe explained perfectly as Senator Rourk in Sin City...
