Speaking to a very small and select group of college students on Thursday, Kellyanne Conway touched on her new position as head of Trump’s opioid research squad. Marketwatch shares some of Conway’s sage advice:
Introducing Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar and the Department of Justice’s Sarah Isgur Flores, Conway discussed fentanyl, a synthetic opioid that is significantly more potent than heroin.
“On our college campuses, your folks are reading the labels, won’t put any sugar in their body, they don’t eat carbs anymore, and they’re very, very fastidious about what goes into their body — and then you buy a street drug for $5 or $10 and it’s laced with fentanyl, and that’s it,” she said.
Conway continued, “So I guess my short advice is, as somebody double your age: eat the ice cream, buy the French fry, don’t buy the street drug.”
Such a good point, Kellyanne. When my father had a hip replacement surgery I believe the doctor prescribed him two Big Macs every four hours to deal with discomfort. Don’t quote me but I believe after about two weeks, my dad only needed one milkshake to get through the night, and a hot dog to start his day.
Conway was making “a joke” as she is often doing when she says anything that isn’t sensitive, or true, or productive, or anything. The audience laughed because that’s what they were supposed to do. However, last month Conway was promoted(?) to heading an “opioids cabinet,” seemingly filled with people lacking any and all expertise in public heath.
Kellyanne Conway is an asshole. Watch the assholish video below.
