Kellyanne Conway Says Politics Move Too Slowly for President Trump

And something about crocodiles.

Always a staunch defender of President Trump, Kellyanne Conway just gave an, um, *enlightening* interview on Fox and Friends in which she seemed to be saying that any drama in the White House right now can be blamed on the fact that Trump moves faster than everyone else.

"Washington moves at a very different pace than a disrupter and a businessman like Donald Trump," Conway explained.

The interview then took an even more confusing turn: "When he says 'drain the swamp,' it's not just to get rid of all of the crocodiles in the water that we don't need there, it's also moving at a different pace."

Wait, huh? Crocodiles?

Conway was probably referring to Trump's unorthodox cabinet, and perhaps his decision to fire James Comey—it's unclear. But no matter what "pace" Trump prefers, he certainly has disrupted the idea of acceptable presidential behavior...which might not be something to brag about.
