Trump campaign manager Kellyanne Conway, who has previously assured us that she will be going away now that the election is over but who still hasn't followed through on that, took to the Sunday shows to badmouth Mitt Romney, praise her boss for not throwing his political opponent in jail despite his absolute lack of authority to do that, and insist that Donald J. Trump doesn't need those intelligence briefings he has been mostly refusing to get because he gets all the secret world information he needs to know from ... foreign leaders?

BASH: [...] Is this true? Has he turned down the opportunity to get classified intelligence briefings?

CONWAY: So he is receiving classified intelligence briefings and the president-elect is also receiving information through his personal and on the phone meetings with over what's now 41 world leaders. In addition to meeting with 60 men and women who could serve in his government but certainly without the promise of any formal position or certainly -- [...]

BASH: But, Kellyanne, has he turned down classified briefings?

CONWAY: I really -- I can't discuss that publicly.

Since the election, according to the Washington Post's sources, he's agreed to sit for only two of the provided daily classified intelligence briefings. But don't worry, says his staff, there's probably nothing important there that he isn't already hearing from his congratulatory phone calls from world leaders. No doubt they're getting him up to speed.

No matter how incompetent and buffoonish we were expecting a Trump White House to be, we may have to revise our estimates downwards. Again.

On the bright side, Kellyanne Conway has high praise for her boss for not immediately turning America into a banana republic a mere three weeks after being elected. Kellyanne, please explain why the president-elect is not pushing to throw his election opponent, Hillary Clinton, in prison for unspecified crimes?
