Donald Trump campaign manager Kellyanne Conway, with an absolutely straight face, told George Stephanopoulos on ABC news' "This Week" that her candidate "doesn't hurl personal insults."
I nearly spit out my coffee when I heard her say it.
Umm, do we all remember "Little Marco," "Lyin Ted," "Crooked Hillary," saying Sen. John McCain isn't a war hero...? I could go on and on.
Here's the clip. Bless Kellyanne for her acting ability. On my best day in the theater I couldn't have delivered this line without laughing.

Conway also raised eyebrows in an interview with CNN's Dana Bash when asked about a meeting Trump had with a Hispanic advisory council yesterday. According to Buzzfeed, Trump spoke about a "humane and efficient" way to cope with undocumented immigrants in the country, which which Buzzfeed interpreted as a way to legalize some of those currently in the U.S. illegally.
When Bash brought up Trump's often discussed "deportation force" which he has said would send undocumented immigrants back to their country of origin, Conway seemed to soften the Trump position: "To be determined."
Trump's immigration position has been a cornerstone of his campaign from day one. It'll be interesting to see how his ardent supporters accept this "massaging" of his original policy.
