Conway: Criticism of me is 'gender-based'

Source: The Hill

Presidential counselor Kellyanne Conway said in an interview at a conservative summit on Saturday that much of the criticism against 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.

Conway, who served as President Trump's campaign manager, noted her relationships with female Democratic senators and other members of Congress, saying “we live in a nation where we all, particularly women, can disagree.”

Conway also said a lot of the criticism directed toward her and Trump is "disconnected" from reality.

"Disconnected from reality". As if anything she says is based on reality. Every time she says something she needs to clean her mouth with toilet paper.

6. She may get more criticism for dodging questions and lying than Trump's other surrogates

... but that's because she is so much more "talented" at it, not because she's a woman.

16. Was it Judge Judy who wrote a book titled "Don't Pee on my Leg and Tell Me It's Raining"?

Well, that kinda sums up how many of us feel about Conjob. She has the audacity to pee all over our legs and then try to convince us it came from a cloud. Every time she opens her mouth, something untruthful comes out. After a while we were on to her game and no matter what she says, we presume it is an outright lie or half truth. She set the terms for the relationship so now she can live with them. Tough sh*t, Kellyanne. Sucks to be you, huh?

And other media WOMEN who called out your lies. As well as men.

You don't get a pass to lie based on gender or race or anything.

27. Well, to be fair, some of it has been.

I'm particularly referencing the criticism of what has come to be called the 'Kellyanne Conway couch kneel' when she was taking a group picture of Trump with the black college leaders in the oval office.

I thought that was pretty small, criticizing her like that, because if you've ever had to take a large group picture, it isn't that easy.

That said, Kellyanne is still an odious human being.

It is just that SOME of the criticism of her has in fact been gender based.

30. And CONway's criticism of Hillary Clinton is obviously gender-based as well then

Like this quote that applies to CONway herself much more than it does to Clinton:

“Yes, it was her fault she lost,” Conway said, according to Politico. “I have found the hard way that a gift all women can give to themselves is self-awareness, and I hope she finds some soon.”
