While talking to reporters in Washington, D.C. on Monday (January 20th), Kellyanne Conway said that she thought Martin Luther King, Jr. would be against Donald Trump's impeachment. She said, ["I don't think it was within 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 with bribery, extortion, high crimes or misdemeanors. I think that anyone who cares about 'and justice for all' . . . will appreciate the fact that the president will now have a full throttle defense on the facts. And everybody should have that."] SOUNDCUE (:29 OC . . . should have that)
Martin Luther King III responded to Conway's comments, telling TMZ, ["I don't know where my father nor does she know where he would be. What I do know is that he respected the law and the abuse of power and if Congress came to the conclusion that there's an abuse of power, he would not stand in the way and say this is wrong. . . He would not want to divide the country, but unfortunately, something has gone awry in the country. . . . None of us is above the law. . .
Nobody is above the law."] SOUNDCUE (:33 OC . . . above the law)
Meanwhile, Trump also took the opportunity to make MLK Day about himself yesterday (January 20th). He tweeted, "It was exactly three years ago today January 20, 2017 that I was sworn into office. So appropriate that today is also MLK jr DAY, African-American unemployment is the LOWEST in the history of our country by far. Also, best poverty, youth and employment numbers ever. Great!"
