Kellyanne Conway, White House counselor to President Trump, isn’t the kind of person who takes cheap shots lying down, nor is she afraid to get down and dirty when it comes to defending herself.
Recently, MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski accused Conway of stating that she hated the work she did for Trump during his presidential campaign.
Trump’s fiery campaign manager shot back, making it clear she thought, nor said, any such thing.
Fox News reports:
Conway, who in August became Trump’s third – and final – campaign manager, allegedly spoke far differently about Trump when the cameras were switched off, “Morning Joe” co-hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski claimed on Monday. Conway called the two “virulent critics” of Trump and said the “sentiments” attributed to her were “not true,” posting a lengthy response posted to Twitter on Tuesday afternoon.“My beliefs, commitments and loyalties are plain to see,” Conway wrote.

She also addressed specific allegations, such as Scarborough’s contention that Conway once said “I’m just doing this for the money.”
“The notion that I am serving for ‘the money’ or a ‘paycheck’ is absurd,” Conway wrote. “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.”
She added: “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.”
It’s quite clear the “Morning Joe” pair are out to boost their ratings by attempting to create news rather than providing commentary on what’s already happening — something not out of the ordinary for the folks over at MSNBC.
Trump, and all those associated with his administration, have become favorite targets for the hacks in the mainstream media who are no longer interested in journalistic integrity, choosing to instead focus on pushing their own agenda.
The left should stop resorting to such tactics and focus on presenting real solutions to real problems in order to win hearts and minds to their cause. But, since they don’t have any, that might be tough.
