Kellyanne Conway Does Not Know What The Word Altered Means

Published by

Appearing on Fox News’ Chris Wallace Show Fox News Sunday yesterday, Kellyanne Conway was asked by Wallace about the tape capturing last week’s altercation between a White House intern and Jim Acosta from CNN,  and then circulated by White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, and InfoWars claiming the “altered video”  was not altered at all, because it is “done all the time in sports.”

To be clear: Wallace concedes to Conway that the altercation was supposedly inappropriate, while Acosta’s actions – , which led to the White House pulling his pass as Senior White House Reporter to the White House, until “further notice” was “inappropriate.”

What Wallace neglects to zone in on, is the fact that Jim Acosta from CNN was simply trying to ask a question which appears to be one Mr. Trump did not  wish to answer leading him to berate the reporter. Wallace also neglects to point out how the “intern” made an attempt at grabbing the microphone away from Acosta, and how Mr. Acosta was merely attempting to ask a question Mr. Trump did not wish to answer.” Further, left from the altered video is the statement made by Acosta to the intern; “Pardon me Ma’am.”

Still though, Wallace did accomplish informing his audience “how the tape was clearly altered in order to make the altercation  look like it was more a physical altercation” than occurred, and intimated “the decision to yank Acosta’s press credentials for the White House, was unnecessary.

Moreover,  Wallace continued to push Conway about the fact that experts confirmed the clip — believed to have first been shared by a contributor to the conspiracy site Infowars — was altered.

And what was Trump’s “spin doctor’s” response?

After getting confirmation from Wallace that he was referring to speeding up the video, she justified the move, by the following:

“But by that do you mean sped up?” Conway asked in response. “Oh, well that’s not altered. That’s sped up. They do it all the time in sports to see if there’s actually a first down or a touchdown.”

As one can imagine, Conway’s rebuttal drew sharp criticism in social media.

One user states:

Kellyanne Conway said the Acosta footage “wasn’t altered, it’s sped up,” which is like saying she doesn’t lie, she just slows down the truth.”

Another Twitter user was more pointed when stating:

“Sped up” literally means “altered to increase speed”. So yes, the video *was* altered.”

Still another Twitter user, this one a sports fan, noted:

Is she talking about slow motion replays to see if a touchdown is scored? Kind of the exact opposite of speeding up the video. Why is this whole Trump crew not the sharpest around.”

But perhaps the most scathing response came from The Daily Beast.  Journalist for The Beast, Matt Wilstein Tweeted the following:

“Note to : Sports footage is generally slowed down to see if there was a touchdown, etc. It’s “sped up” in highlight reels to make things look more dramatic and violent than they actually were.

All of this to say that Kellyanne Conway spilled the beans regarding what really happened when the White House pulled Jim Acosta’s press pass. Furthermore, we now know that in addition to being Mr. Trump’s chief liar, spin doctor, or instigator with the media,  Kellyanne Conway does not

know the meaning of the word “alter.”

So let’s assist Conway this morning, especially if she gets to read this article. The definition of the word alter is as follows:

“To change or cause to change in character or composition, typically in a comparatively small but significant way.” 

In light of Conway’s admission that the video circulated through InfoWars was doctored and altered, perhaps Mrs. Conway has spent too much time around Donald J. Trump, as it appears she can no longer tell the truth from a lie, as she continues to gaslight the country with such absurdity.

Here is the video of Conway’s appearance on Chris Wallace’s show on Fox:
