Kellyanne Conway, Counselor to POTUS reacted to Morning Joe hosts Mika Brzezinski, Joe Scarborough for stating that SHE is not actually supporting POTUS #DonaldJTrump, and that she is in it for money.
Conway RESPONDED in a statement on Tuesday:
The hosts of MSNBC’s Morning Joe have become virulent critics of the President and those close to him. Ignoring insults and insinuations is a valuable skill. But when sentiments are attributed to me that are not true, it is necessary to respond.
My beliefs, commitments and loyalties are plain to see.
The notion that I am serving for ‘the money’ or a ‘paycheck’ is absurd. As campaign manager, I made a fraction of what other consultants have made on unsuccessful presidential campaigns. Then I walked away from dozens of opportunities for millions of dollars, and instead walked into the White House. I would do it again.
It is a privilege to assist President Trump in the White House, just as it was during the campaign. I know him, I respect him, I believe in him, and I am confident in his capacity to be a transformative and successful President.
Scarborough and Brzezinski offered no evidence to support their attacks which claimed that Conway is in it for the money. They also claimed that Conway said in the past that she needed to take a shower after standing for Trump when the microphones were off during the campaign, again something for which they provided no “proof.”
Just the other day Conway was disrespected by Anderson Cooper on live TV. Conway stated that Cooper’s eye roll is “possibly sexist,” and “definitely what I’d call Trumpist,” a new term that apparently describes anything anti-Trump.
