At his rally in West Virginia on Thursday evening, President Trump explained the motivation behind the “Russian probe” to his audience of at least 10,000 adoring Americans.

“The Russia story is a total fabrication,” stated Trump, who then jokingly asked if there were any Russians in the room. He went on to explain why Democrats and the mainstream media outlets are so obsessed with Russia and trying to investigate him for a crime he didn’t commit, saying, “It’s just an excuse for the greatest loss in the history of American politics. It just makes them feel better when they have nothing else to talk about. They can’t beat us at the voting booths, so they’re trying to cheat you out of the future that you want … they’re trying to cheat you out of the leadership you want with a fake story that is demeaning to all of us, and, most importantly, is demeaning to our country and to our Constitution.”

Kellyanne Conway echoed those sentiments this morning and delved even deeper into the notion that Americans are, indeed, being “cheated” by protesters, obstructionist lawmakers, and even those investigating the president in the great quest to uncover “collusion” with the Russian government. How else could a businessman with no government experience snatch the presidency out of the hands of a former first lady, senator, and secretary of state who was practically owed the honor of becoming the country’s first female president? Thousands of voters in West Virginia know the answer to that.

“The media, the investigators, the Democratic Party, they’re not just denying the election results for Donald Trump. They’re denying the American people who put him here,” Conway told “Fox & Friends” on Friday. “And they’re trying to cheat them out of their rightful presidency.”

Last night’s rally in West Virginia hearkened back to last year around this time when President Trump was taking the country by storm, community-by-community, city-by-city, with rallies that drew huge crowds of Trump supporters from the surrounding region of any venue he occupied.

“Coal miners are so happy with this president,” Conway said, and it showed on their faces.

Trump rallies are typically full of people who look happy, which is probably the reason leftists refer to Trump supporters as “zombies,” because they’re not used to the people around them smiling and feeling good about what their president is saying. One could even argue that Democrats find it difficult to look forward to the future, but Trump’s supporters expect him to bring back industries and jobs to their communities; and not one of them seeks more social welfare or any kind of a hand-out. All they want are opportunities.

At the rally, Democratic Gov. Jim Justice of West Virginia announced that he will switch his Party affiliation to Republican, after witnessing the destructive nature of Democratic lawmakers firsthand.

“He is one of many Democrats out there who are so sick and tired of a leftist party that’s gone so far that you don’t welcome pro-lifers, pro-Second Amendment … you won’t show more respect for military veterans, national security, American exceptionalism,” Conway noted.

The senior presidential adviser then went on to talk about the ongoing leaks of sensitive information out of the White House, calling the situation a “national disgrace.”

“I want there to be bipartisan outrage, because we need people to understand this imperils national security,” said Conway, adding that new White House Chief of Staff John Kelly is cracking down on leakers, but, because of the nature of the crime, it’s difficult to pin offenders down.

Addressing the unknown culprits directly, Conway stated, “You’re hurting the country. Democrats are even admitting that now.”
