Kellyanne Conway's White Nationalist Retweet Is No Mistake

Late Monday, coming off of a long evening of responding to Gen. Mike Flynn's resignation as National Security Adviser, senior Trump adviser Kellyanne Conway found solace in a tweet from a user named Lib Hypocrisy.

Conway not only retweeted the message but also wrote, "Love you back," and wished her "Hapless Haters" a happy Valentine's Day.

But there was just one problem: Lib Hypocrisy is an explicit promoter of white nationalism and other bigotry. This is evident from the account's profile, which includes the hashtags "#WhiteIdentity" and "#Nationalist." It features a cartoon image connoting Pepe the Frog, the adopted mascot of the racist "alt-right" movement, and a shout-out to Geert Wilders, the far-right Dutch politician who wants to shut down mosques.

Conway's move continues a longstanding pattern of Trump and his inner circle engaging with white nationalists and then claiming ignorance when confronted about it—as Mother Jones documented in multiple investigations since last summer. Other such "mistakes"...
