Kellyanne Conway Slammed After Suggesting Trump Was A Champion For Women As President

Former White House counselor and Donald Trump advisor Kellyanne Conway is facing harsh criticism on social media after suggesting that he was a champion of women as president, calling him “a great girlboss.”

During an interview on “CBS Mornings” on Tuesday, Conway responded to criticism from Trump following the publication of her book earlier this month.

Conway published a memoir earlier this month, called “Here’s the Deal,” in which she said that she “may have been the first person Trump trusted in his inner circle who told him that he had come up short this time” regarding his 2020 presidential election loss.

Trump contradicted the memoir’s contents, issuing a statement on Truth Social, his new social media website, writing: “never told me that she thought we lost the election. If she had, I wouldn’t have dealt with her any longer — she would have been wrong — could go back to her crazy husband.”

The former president has vigorously disputed that he lost the last presidential election, baselessly claiming that the fraud had been committed.

Conway was asked by CBS host Tony Dokoupilto respond to Trump’s remarks.

“What do you say to the president contesting your version?” Dokoupil asked.

Co-host Gayle King added, “No, what exactly he said, he wouldn’t have dealt with you any longer, she would have been wrong, and you can go back with your crazy husband. He didn’t just say you’re not telling the truth.”

Conway said she urged Trump to make his case for winning the election before the states’ certification of their electoral college votes on 14 December.

“‘You have every right to do with Al Gore did, what others have done, which is if you are going to go find evidence of malfeasance, the shenanigans of theft fraud, you have every right to do that with your legal team and present it,’”

Conway said she told the president at the time. “And we all know what happened. They tried, they presented it. The election was certified for Biden-Harris, but other people had another idea to blow past December 14, and look at January 6, as another alternative way.”

“Did you have to tell the president that he failed on November 3?” Mr Dokoupil asked.

“I did, and it broke my heart,” Conway said. She added that he was “a great girlboss” who championed women despite his very public verbal abuse of prominent public figures such as former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, Vice President Kamala Harris, and the group of House lawmakers sometimes referred to as “the squad”.
