President Trump’s Counsel Kellyanne Conway has again slammed her critics and said criticism of her is “gender-based.”
“I understand that we’re a nation of charged opinions and partisan rancor, but I do find that most of the vitriol comes from people who don’t know me, and who are very brave on social media,” Conway said in a response to a question from Bob Vander Plaats, president of social conservative group The Family Leader, at a conference in Des Moines, Iowa.
“It’s unbelievable how if I say something on a television program, or if the president says something, the reaction is so disconnected from what was just said,” she said.
“But so much of the criticism of me is so gender-based,” Conway added, while encouraging increased civility in policy debates. “I pray for my country and I pray for my critics.”
Kellyanne Conway rose to prominence while working as Trump’s campaign manager in the 2016 Presidential elections and then after delivering the electoral college win although Trump lost the popular vote by millions of votes, she went on to become Trump’s biggest defender in a scandal ridden Trump administration.
She claims that much of the criticism against Trump is detached from reality.
The criticism against her from other women, she claimed, “totally undercuts modern feminism saying that they are for women.”
