Kellyanne Conway on Fox: ‘Gravy Train Is About to Have Its Wheels Blown Off’

And Hemingway tells Stelter 'The Times' crapped the bed As for all those protestors in the streets, Conway said ‘Many of them professional and paid, by the way—I’m sure.’ Fox News Sunday Women who want safe and legal abortions might have to go to a different state, President-elect Donald Trump said, after his version of the Supreme Court overturns Roe v. Wade. “The judges will be pro-life,” Trump said on a 60 Minutes interview that was broadcast on CBS Sunday, but was recorded on Friday. If they overturn Roe, Trump said, each state would decide on its own. And what about the 11 million undocumented immigrants Trump pledged to deport during his successful campaign against the Democratic candidate, Hillary Clinton? “They’re terrific people,” Trump told interviewer Leslie Stahl—except, of course, for the two or three million undocumented criminals, gang members and drug dealers Trump pledged to deport. So, what about the others, those “terrific people” without legal status? “We’re going to make a determination,” Trump said. The interview was recorded before Trump named Reince Priebus his White House chief of staff and Steve Bannon his chief strategist and senior counselor. Priebus is the chair of the Republican National Committee and is close to Congressman Paul Ryan, a fellow Wisconsinite who is Speaker of the House. Bannon, chief executive officer of the campaign, used to run the website Breitbart, an extreme right-wing “news” source. Bannon is close to the racists and anti-Semites who fuel the web site’s energy and helped give Trump’s campaign its unique personality. Trump didn’t comment about these appointees on 60 Minutes, but Stahl more than once asked him about Hispanics, Muslims and African-Americans who, she said, are terrified by Trump’s election last Tuesday. Many of them have been demonstrating against Trump in the streets of major American cities. “Well, I think, in some cases, you have professional protestors,” Trump said. Stahl rejected the notion and pressed the point. STAHL: “They’re afraid.” TRUMP: “I would tell them ‘Don’t be afraid.’” But Stahl persisted, telling Trump that Latinos, gays and African-Americans already are enduring public harassment from bigots who are flush with purpose after Trump won election with vicious campaign rhetoric. “I’m very surprised to hear that,” Trump said of the open slurs against minorities. “I hate to hear that . . . I am so saddened to hear that and I say ‘Stop it.’ If it helps, and I’ll say it right to the camera, ‘Stop it.’” A viewer could be excused for yelling the same thing at the TV screen as Trump—surrounded by family members—declined to answer some questions and offered only vague replies to others. Stahl asked him about his plan—vowed to his chanting mobs during the campaign—that he would appoint a special prosecutor to put Clinton in prison. “I’ll tell you what I’m going to do,” Trump said. “I’m going to think about it.” As for health care, Trump hedged on his pledge to “repeal and replace Obamacare” immediately. He said he might urge retention of popular parts, like allowing insurance coverage for people with pre-existing conditions and allowing parents to keep their kids on their policies until age 26. “It’ll be better health care, much better, for less money,” Trump said. “Not a bad combination.” He offered no details on how he planned to accomplish this. As for the giant wall he said he will build on the border with Mexico, Trump said part of it might be just a fence. Hand me the remote . . . THIS WEEK One of George Stephanopoulos’s guests on ABC was Rudy Giuliani, the former mayor of New York who is in line for a top cabinet position under Trump. He was asked about a special prosecutor for Clinton. “You don’t want to disrupt the nation by what might look like a vindictive prosecution,” Giuliani said. “I guess the next Attorney General is going to have to figure that out. I don’t know if that’ll be me or not.” Giuliani repeated the Trump line that some of the protestors in the streets were “professional.” Back when he was mayor, Giuliani said, he would not let them block the streets the way they have done in recent nights. “They didn’t look to me like people who were carefully studying political science,” Giuliani said. Another guest was Keith Ellison, the Democratic Congressman from Minnesota who is a candidate for chair of the Democratic National Committee. ‘The Klan won? That...
