Kellyanne Conway: Martin Luther King Would Oppose Trump Impeachment

Kellyanne Conway: Martin Luther King Would Oppose Trump Impeachment January 20, 2020

The stupid, it burns: White House counselor Kellyanne Conway claims Martin Luther King Jr. would oppose the impeachment of Donald J. Trump.

The Hill reports:

White House counselor Kellyanne Conway said on Martin Luther King Jr. Day that the late civil rights icon would not support impeaching President Trump.

The Daily Beast notes:

Kellyanne Conway on Monday responded to a question on how the president is observing Martin Luther King Day by claiming the civil-rights leader would oppose the impeachment of President Donald Trump.

Conway, speaking before a press gathering at the White House, explained how Trump would be celebrating the MLK holiday, before declaring that she believed King would not support the Trump impeachment. Conway began her remarks by noting:

The President is preparing for Davos and agrees with many of the things that Dr. Martin Luther King stood for and agrees for many years, including unity and equality…

Conway continued:

I’ve held my opinion on it for a very long time, but when you see the articles of impeachment that came out, I don’t think it was Dr. King’s vision to have Americans dragged through a process where the president is not going to be removed from office, is not being charged bribery, extortion, high crimes and misdemeanors. 

Conway added:

I, this morning, was reading some of the lesser-known passages by Dr. King and I appreciate the fact that we as a nation respect him by giving him his own day.

In short, Conway tried to compare Trump’s impeachment to the injustices Martin Luther King Jr. fought against, while claiming that the civil rights icon would oppose Trump’s impeachment.

As one might imagine, the ridiculous and despicable remarks were met with condemnation on social media:

Bottom line: White House counselor Kellyanne Conway claims Martin Luther King Jr. would oppose the impeachment of Donald J. Trump.
