Kellyanne versus Chuck Todd - Round 2

CHUCK: Let me start by saying thank you to Kellyanne Conway, counselor to President Trump, for agreeing to this "do over" after yesterday's contentious leftwing agenda-driven interview.


KELLYANNE: Well, you did agree to get to the substance and the actual issues confronting the new administration, so I'm happy to finally do that.


 CHUCK: Excellent, then let's get started. The graphic on the screen is just a random picture of ants. I know it's a very small and petty thing, but How many ants would you say there are?


KELLYANNE: I'm sure I have no idea. Ultimately I don't believe an ant colony's success can be judged by the number of ants in your picture. I think they're judged by their accomplishments. But I thought we were going to be discussing the dismantling of obamacare, and...

CHUCK: The average number of ants in an ant hill is approximately 700,000. That's less than HALF the 1.8 million people who attended President Barack Obama’s first inauguration in 2009. Does that surprise you, Kellyanne?

KELLYANNE: Chuck, I mean, can we talk about President Trump's plans to rebuild this economy and getting Americans back to work? Or how about his planned executive order that defunds International Planned Parenthood? Maybe we could discuss his desire to move the U.S. embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem?


CHUCK: Do you believe it undermines the credibility of the entire White House Press Office on day one if the press secretary doesn't know how many M&M's are in this jar? Would you say there are  more or less than the number of people who attended Trump's inauguration?


KELLYANNE: I'd say, "Less".

From my vantage point, I estimated a bazillion more than at Obama's inauguration. Of course, I have much better perception than any of the media hosts, and know they have no idea there are exactly 627 M&M's in that jar.

627. Man. I knew that.

Jess, The reason there appear to be more at Trump's is because of light refracting through the tears of joy and appearing to double the attendance. The reason there appears to be less at obama's is because I didn't watch that horsepucky.

Ed, well I'm not eating them now if you two pawed them.

Do the "brown ones in the woodpile" count? Or are they worth 3/5ths? It was of course, a Republican that freed the brown m & m's, but I'm not sure how Chuck Todd and the dems would tally them.

DaBlade said...

Good question, doc. We rightfully count all m&m's equally now, as they are all brown inside. We won that battle, and will win the rest. Now pass me the peanut m&ms while I can still draw breathe.

M&M lives matter. I can't believe how callous you all are about this most important subject.

DaBlade said...

Of course, you are right, cube. Sometimes I get carried away with myself. I plan to stop by the store and adopt a family pack in the yellow bag. I will give them a gooood home ;)
