Kellyanne Conway Launches Into Unprovoked Attack On Hillary In Belligerent Interview

The Trump administration has proven that campaign season issues won’t be going away anytime soon. Hillary Clinton, who won the popular vote but was defeated by Donald Trump in the final Electoral College tally, has continued to maintain a spot in the public eye — and members of the Trump administration have maintained their vocal opposition to her.

In this particular instance, Trump adviser Kellyanne Conway was given a platform to spew her anti-Hillary monologue by the hosts of the president’s favorite show, Fox & Friends. On Thursday, she was pressed for a response to recent comments from Hillary Clinton about married white female voters, with her responding by going so far as to claim that the two-time presidential candidate is not a “feminist.”

The comments in question from Clinton covered the topic of why — in her mind at least — she lost married white female voters. Clinton suggested that such was because the male figures in these women’s lives pressured them to vote for Trump.

Curiously, in her response to the former presidential candidate, Conway avoided actually saying Clinton’s name, but she nevertheless addressed her directly, saying:

‘Let me tell you something lady, the idea that I or other women like me have to ask our husbands how to vote — it’s really a joke, particularly since — I won’t say your name but I’ll appeal to you directly — particularly since this country knows who you are first and foremost because of whom you married. So stop pretending you’re a feminist, you’re for equality, you’re for fairness to women, and then running around accusing us of checking with our husbands and our significant others before we vote. I think that this is very representative of how angry and bitter and ungracious many have become in this country.’

Apart from any other issue, the irony of her griping about how “angry and bitter” we have become as a country, while working for Donald Trump, is apparently lost on her. Her at this point longtime boss isn’t exactly known for saying nice things on Twitter — and yet it’s the bitterness the rest of us are supposedly holding onto that’s the problem.

The irony seems to be similarly lost on Conway of her griping about Clinton supposedly not being committed enough to feminism while working for Donald Trump. Her boss, the president of the United States, is the man known for being caught on tape bragging about his supposed freedom to commit sexual assault, dismissing the comments as insignificant “locker room talk” — and yet it’s Hillary Clinton who isn’t “feminist enough.”

There may indeed be issues with Clinton’s comments, but the full picture of those issues was not provided by Kellyanne Conway during her recent appearance on Fox & Friends. 

Clinton offered her comments during a trip to India, where she spoke at the India Today Conclave event.

The controversy over Clinton remarking as she did about white female voters, seeming to many to suggest that married white women have little agency, mirrors controversy that followed her remarking that Trump’s supporters were largely “deplorable” during the campaign season.

With her comments, she ended up giving Trump supporters a title they’ve worn as a badge of honor.
