Kellyanne Conway Blasts ‘Haters’ for Sexist Criticism

ARLINGTON, VA - JANUARY 27: President Trump's counselor Kellyanne Conway looks on in the Hall of Heroes at the Department of Defense on January 27, 2017 in Arlington, Virginia. Trump signed two orders calling for the "great rebuilding" of the nation's military and the "extreme vetting" of visa seekers from terror-plagued countries.

The New York Times published a piece this past week discussing the flack Conway receives because she is a high-profile woman.

“What powerful political woman is mocked for her clothes, is the target of pictures on Twitter depicting her as haggard and is routinely called a witch and a bitch?

If you guessed Hillary Clinton, you’re right.

But if you guessed Kellyanne Conway, you’re right, too.”

Conway said she felt heartened by the article and added she often tries to ignore any coverage of her specifically.

“I’m there to serve the president who’s there to serve the American people,” she said. “I’m not there to read about myself.”

Conway of course discussed the now infamous photo showing her kneeling on an Oval Office couch.

She also responded to critics of what she called her “haggard” appearances on television by saying she is often up late at night helping her children with their schoolwork.
