Kellyanne Conway is responding to an MSNBC report that she secretly hates Donald Trump. Her statement in response to the story, included below, makes it clear that MSNBC’s claims were untrue.
Mika Brzezinski and Joe Scarborough of MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” attacked Conway on Monday, and questioned her loyalty to the President. They claimed she secretly despises him, and is only doing it for the money. They have also called the presence of Conway on TV “politics porn.”
“This is a woman, by the way, who came on our show during the campaign and would shill for Trump in extensive fashion and then she would get off the air… the camera would be turned off, the microphone would be taken off and she would say, ‘Bleeeech I need to take a shower,’ because she disliked her candidate so much,” Brzezinski said.
The “Morning Joe” duo recently compared listening to Conway to “watching a car wreck on the highway,” essentially banning her from appearing on the show over concerns about the veracity of her statements. They have also called her the “leaker extraordinaire” within Trump’s inner circle.
Scarborough chimed in, saying that Conway has said, “I’m just doing this for the money, I’ll be off this soon… I’m gonna get through this.”
Brzezinski interrupted: “But first I have to take a shower because it feels so dirty to be saying what I’m saying… I guess she’s just used to it now.”
Last week, Brzezinski ripped CNN for booking Conway during a different segment of the MSNBC morning show.
“Note to CNN. Sorry, I love CNN. But you’ve got to stop putting Kellyanne on the air. It’s politics porn,” Brzezinski said. “You’re just getting your little ratings crack, OK? But it’s disgusting.”
Conway responded to those allegations in no uncertain terms. In a tweet just posted (see below), Conway blasts MSNBC for their fake reporting.
Here is the complete statement from Conway.
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.
