(ConservativeUnit)- Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden told the media this week that President Donald Trump’s senior counselor Kellyanne Conway “expressed hope for more discord and violence in our cities.” He lied.
In an official statement, former Vice President Joe Biden attempted to blame President Donald Trump and his administration for the violence being committed on American streets by far-left supporters of Joe Biden. It was a clear attempt at shifting away responsibility, in the hope that the Democrats can avoid condemning Antifa and Black Lives Matter.
The statement repeatedly referred to “Donald Trump’s America,” as if the violence is a direct result of President Donald Trump and not the result of far-left radicalism.
“Before tonight’s convention, one of Trump’s top advisors even expressed hope for more discord and violence in our cities in a cynical ploy to use division as a political strategy,” the statement claimed.
NEW from Biden camp’s @KBeds: “In Donald Trump’s America, safety is pitted against justice, Americans are pitted against one another, and the violence that Trump warns of plays out on the streets of communities across our country — stoked by his own words and actions.” pic.twitter.com/uNO2MUOHGC

The statement was referring to Kellyanne Conway, and naturally, her comments have been taken wildly out of context. We know they are talking about Conway (we say “they” and not “Biden” because you know he didn’t write any of this) because Biden made the same claim specifically about her during an interview with CNN on Thursday. Biden read out a comment from Conway, taken out of context, to Anderson Cooper.
Conway said during an interview on Fox and Friends that former Indiana Mayor Pete Buttigieg was wrong to say that the riots were happening on “Donald Trump’s watch” and noted that Buttigieg and the Democrats know the riots are hurting them.
“He knows, full stop, and I guess Mayor Pete knows, full stop, that the more chaos and anarchy and vandalism and violence reigns, the better it is for the very clear choice on who is best on public safety and law and order,” Conway said.
Which clearly isn’t her wishing or hoping for more violence. Instead, it’s a statement of fact.
Is this the weakest, most dishonest Democrat presidential campaign ever?
