Kellyanne Conway really is the worst kind of person. Yes, she is a woman who ran a successful presidential campaign. But she continues to defend Trump and his disgusting ways, and defends his prior allegations of sexual assault.
Conway was a speaker at an event sponsored by the University of Virginia’s Center for Politics, and was asked a question by a high school student who identified herself as Maaike Laanstra-Corn, the daughter of liberal author and Mother Jones Washington bureau chief David Corn. Her high school Advanced Placement government class was attending an all-day event.
Laanstra-Corn asked Conway how she can “rationalize” working for someone who faces claims of sexual assault.
“Women are tired of the same argument and the same thing you are presenting to me right now,” Conway responded.
“I’m glad that people looked at [those attacks] and said, ‘You know what? That’s an argument that will not create a single job in my community, not bring back a single of the 70,000 factories that have been closed, will not deter one member of ISIS from doing their bloodletting here or anywhere else in the world.”
Then Conway got in her last digs, saying, “For you to use sexual assault to try to make news here I think is unfortunate, but it also doesn’t matter because Donald Trump promised he’ll be a president of all Americans.”
