Ingraham: Trump Stepping on Positive Message With Attacks on McCain, Conway
Says POTUS wasting time with 'score-settling.'
Laura Ingraham sent a message to President Trump in her closing monologue Wednesday, urging the president to avoid the personal attacks that distract from what should be a positive economic message.
Trump has stepped up his attacks in recent days on late Republican Sen. John McCain and George Conway, an outspoken critic and the husband of White House counselor Kellyanne Conway.
George Conway, often referred to as Mr. Kellyanne Conway by those who know him, is VERY jealous of his wife’s success & angry that I, with her help, didn’t give him the job he so desperately wanted. I barely know him but just take a look, a stone cold LOSER & husband from hell!

So it was indeed (just proven in court papers) “last in his class” (Annapolis) John McCain that sent the Fake Dossier to the FBI and Media hoping to have it printed BEFORE the Election. He & the Dems, working together, failed (as usual). Even the Fake News refused this garbage!

Ingraham said Trump is presiding over the strongest economy in the world thanks to policies he enacted, with manufacturing, wages and optimism increasing.
"This is one of the best times ever to be an American. ... But for the past few days, you've stepped on your own message and given needless fodder to your enemies," she said.
Ingraham said Trump is wasting time on "score-settling" instead of focusing the nation's attention on conservative solutions to contrast with Democrats' shift toward socialism.
She said the Mueller probe has been an "unfair albatross" for the president and the media "horribly biased," but the president must keep his "eye on the prize" for the American people.
Ingraham said it's "terrific" for the president to be unconventional and speak to voters through Twitter, but he must focus on "what counts" ahead of the 2020 election.
