In an interview with The Daily Caller, White House Counselor, Kellyanne Conway expressed little sympathy for the claim that President Trump’s tweets to Mika Brzezinski were sexist. Instead, she called that idea “‘really rich just for any woman who works here’ because of Brzezinski’s attacks on women in the Trump White House,” writes The Daily Caller.
Conway also wonders why there was never any outrage when the leftist media criticized women in Trump’s administration.
“I’m waiting, waiting, waiting for someone there to stand up and express their outrage at a high-ranking woman at the White House being talked about in such ways,” says Conway in reference to CNN’s Chris Cuomo saying that Conway “looks like she was hit with a shovel” and calling her an “awful woman" in a recently released Project Veritas video.
Conway’s words echo those of Deputy Press Secretary, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, who asked during a press briefing Thursday afternoon, “What about the constant attacks that he receives? Or the rest of us? I’m a woman, and I’ve been attacked by this show multiple times.”
Continuing to make her point that it’s ironic for Brzezinski to be so upset about the tweets, Conway pointed to several comments that Brzezinski had made about her in the past, including calling her “politics porn.”
“When Mika said what she has said about me, I have not responded,” adds Conway. “All those things she’s said about me — ‘politics porn,’ ‘liar,’ ‘nothing honest about Kellyanne Conway’ — I haven’t responded to that, I haven’t shown the texts, I’ve sort of just sucked it up, swallowed it, dealt with the crying kids about it.”
Conway’s comments point to hypocrisy in the mainstream media. They condemn him as sexist while either ignoring the women he has appointed to high positions in his administration or treating those women with contempt. It’s time that the women—the Conservative women—in the White House received the respect they deserve from the media. Until then, as Conway points out, they shouldn’t be so up in arms about a couple of tweets.
