Since the day she joined the Trump campaign, Kellyanne Conway’s job has been to distract from any direct questions by attacking the press or using her “whataboutism” style. On Tuesday, she tried the same tactics when confronted about a tell-all book by the president’s niece, Mary Trump, titled Too Much and Never Enough: How My Family Created the World’s Most Dangerous Man.

After Conway smirked through what she surely felt was a smackdown of the reporters she openly courts, saying that they’ll give anyone “credibility” who denigrates Trump and that they shouldn’t get involved in family matters, she immediately, a rather disgustingly, stepped right into a family matter.
‘Unlike many of you, I don’t like to get involved in people’s family business. I certainly wouldn’t if I were troubled, thin-skinned, and living in a glass house.’
Nothing says “staying out of family business” like trashing a member of the president’s family.
Although the White House and the Trump family fought to keep the book from being published, it will be released on July 14, 2020 and is said to include a number of startling revelations. The book claims that Trump made sexual comments about his niece’s breasts, that he paid someone to take his SATs, and that his own sister thinks he’s a “clown” who has never accomplished anything on his own except “five bankruptcies.” In short, it’s exactly what Trump didn’t need, but wholly deserves, just ahead of the November elections.
Twitter noticed all the irony in Conway’s statement, including what appeared to be more a description of her boss than his niece. Read some of their comments below:
