Well, Kellyanne snapped.
Kellyanne Conway, the woman who led Donald Trump’s presidential campaign to victory this past November before being elevated to the status of one of President Donald Trump’s closest advisers, allegedly punched a man three times at one of the balls held late into the night after Trump was officially sworn into office last Friday.
She is said to have been attempting to break up a fight when she started swinging. After she approached the two men and they wouldn’t stop their hassling with each other. She punched one of them repeatedly in the face with a closed fist.
As the New York Daily News reports, sourcing its information in part from a Facebook post made by Fox Business correspondent Charles Gasparino:
‘Conway, who serves as Trump’s senior counselor, apparently stepped in between two men after they got into a scuffle at the invite-only Liberty Ball on Friday evening, witnesses told the Daily News. But the two men wouldn’t break up the fight and Conway apparently punched one of them in the face with closed fists at least three times, according to stunned onlookers. It was not immediately clear what triggered the fistfight and a Trump spokeswoman did not immediately return a request for comment.’
Gasparino’s full Facebook post is featured below.
What this means is that someone is allegedly going around with the honor of having been punched by one of the president’s closest advisers.
Is this sort of thing how Conway kept the often wildly off course Trump campaign from straying too far from what became the victorious path pre-election day? Did she punch campaign staffers who were out of line or who suggested outlandish things? Is punching the then-Republican presidential nominee how Conway kept him from becoming too unhinged ahead of the election?
Obviously that’s not an entirely serious question. What is serious and one hundred percent real, however, is that one of the closest advisers to the president of the United States is reported to have used her fist to break up a fight that broke out at one of inaugural balls marking the beginning of her boss’s reign as U.S. leader.
