Kellyanne Conway went on Fox News this morning and defended President Trump’s weekend retweet, saying that “I think the President just wants everything to be investigated”:

We’re really not too sure what everyone is so bent out of shape about here. Transcript via The Daily Beast:
“I think the president just wants everything to be investigated,” Conway said before alluding to the alleged connection between Clinton and Epstein revealed in unsealed court documents the day before Epstein took his life.
“There’s always this rush to we need transparency, we need accountability, when it involved fictional accusations like ‘collusion’ with Russia to swing an election,” she continued, attempting the claim political bias in the case. “This seems to be very concrete in that Jeffrey Epstein has done some very bad things over a number of years. So let’s continue to investigate that.”
MSNBC/NBC News analyst Howard Fineman was particularly unhappy with her appearance on Fox News, and somehow brought Russia into it:
This is beyond shameful — and yet millions, if not tens of millions, of @realDonaldTrump supporters probably think that @KellyannePolls was merely stating the obvious. #Putin’s got us right where he wants us. https://t.co/1G7FEsjzpS

And then he thought it would be a good idea to retweet this image comparing Conway to Beavis from the old MTV cartoon, “Beavis and Butthead.” Is NBC and MSNBC OK with this crap?
Not to be outdone, Soledad O’Brien compared her to an “Organ. Grinder’s. Monkey.” over the same segment:
