The Difference Between What Offends You and What Affects You

Leave it to Donald Trump’s campaign manager Kellyanne Conway to come up with what might be the best answer to the oft-asked question, “How could you vote for him after he said all that stuff about…?”

Conway, appearing at a Harvard panel along with several Trump and Clinton aides to discuss the campaign, said, “There’s a difference for voters between what offends you and what affects you.”

What a perfect answer.

Let’s face it, you probably can’t find a single voter who didn’t take exception to something Trump said at one point or another in the campaign. Some of it was harmlessly vulgar, some of it was not as “offensive” as the left made it out to be, and some of it was truly unacceptable. But you didn’t have to put your stamp of approval on every off-color remark Trump made to vote for him. Frankly, you just needed to prefer him to Hillary, and that’s a pretty low bar.

Of course, in LiberalLand, Trump was saying a bunch of stuff that you might have missed, seeing as how you are of sound mind.

“If providing a platform for white supremacists makes me a brilliant tactician, I am proud to have lost,” said Jennifer Palmieri, a top Clinton campaign adviser, at the panel. “I would rather lose than win the way you guys did.”

Conway asked, “Do you think I ran a campaign where white supremacists had a platform?”

“You did, Kellyanne. You did,” Palmieri said.

“There were dog whistles sent out to people,” said Joel Benenson, Clinton’s campaign strategist. “Look at your rallies. He delivered it.”

Conway told Clinton’s people that they simply couldn’t deal with their failure.

“Guys, I can tell you are angry, but wow,” she said. “Hashtag he’s your president. How’s that? Will you ever accept the election results? Will you tell your protesters that he’s their president, too?”

Conway was upset, and she has every right to be. But at the end of the day, you can’t worry about the jealous foes who want to take away your victory. It can’t be taken. It’s offensive to listen to them try to delegitmize the president-elect, but hey, what did we learn? It doesn’t affect us. Let ’em whine.
