Monday morning on MSNBC’s Morning Joe we learned that two sources at the top of the Donald Trump transition team confirmed that they spoke to Trump today and that Donald Trump was “furious” at Kellyanne Conway’s comments Sunday suggesting Trump “betrayed” his supporters by even considering Mitt Romney for a position in his cabinet.
“Kellyanne went rogue at Donald Trump’s expense at the worst possible time,” a source familiar with Trump’s thinking told MSNBC.

Trump’s top aides said they were “baffled” by Conway’s comments and suggested that it feeds into a growing concern inside the campaign that “instead of driving Donald Trump’s message, she’s pushing her own agenda.”
“It’s dangerous,” said a top transition aide.
Steve Bannon and Reince Priebus have reportedly been growing frustrated by Conway’s failure to become a team player in a transition process where the top players are forming a tight knit group around the president-elect.
Conway, responding to MSNBC via text early Monday, denied the report, saying, “It is all false. And sexist.”
Conway went on to say about her role in the transition: “I [can] have any job I want. May stay outside to take the Plouffe role and run the political operation. [Trump] wants me by his side.”
