White House counselor Kellyanne Conway has made a number of ridiculous claims since she began working for the president last year, but the comments she made on Saturday at the Family Leadership Summit in Des Moines, Iowa, might be the most laughable yet.
During a conversation with Bob Vander Plaats, a conservative evangelical activist, Conway argued that much of the criticism she receives is based on her gender.
‘If you want to disagree on policy — if you disagree on tax reform or health care reform or immigration or you’re for abortion and I’m not — then say that. Disagree that way, that’s what America is. But so much of the criticism of me is so gender-based.’
Conway added that the criticism she faces is focused on “how I look or what I wear or how I speak.”
‘It’s really remarkable, and it totally undercuts modern feminism.’
Conway certainly has faced some criticism that is centered around her appearance, but much more of it also has to do with the person she represents and lengths she will go to in order to defend him. For her to pretend otherwise is what really “undercuts modern feminism.”
