Donald Trump's campaign manager used a phrase today that under normal circumstances would go unnoticed...But Trump campaign is anything but that.
October 12, 2016

During an interview with ABC's Good Morning America, Kellyanne Conway used a very interesting phrase to describe Republicans that were pulling support from Donald Trump.

"Enough of the pussyfooting around in terms of, you know, do you support us or do you not support us," she demanded of hesitant Republicans.

That word seems to be used a lot these days.

Maybe their hope is that it doesn't sound as odious as it did when Trump's sex tape was first released, if only they can use it enough to desensitize everyone.

As Bill O'Reilly did last night, George Stephanopoulos wondered how Trump's attacking major figures in the Republican party would be of help to him.

Stephanopoulos wondered, "Last night he said he doesn't want the support of House Speaker Paul Ryan, earlier in the day he said he was losing because he didn't have the support, so which is it?"

"We want the support of anybody who’s going to publicly endorse us," Conway replied. "But enough of the pussyfooting around in terms of, you know, do you support us or do you not support us?"

Then the threat. "And I think that Paul Ryan has a job to do to keep the majority in Congress, and the new President of the United States will go ahead and be with him to help."

Conway is a very astute wordsmith, I'm just saying.
