Kellyanne Conway took a moment from her busy schedule on Tuesday to fire back at MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinski and Joe Scarborough for constantly attacking her.
Conway posted an official statement on Twitter criticizing MSNBC for viciously going after her day after day.
“The hosts of MSNBC’s Morning Joe have become virulent critics of the President and those close to him. Ignoring insults and insinuations is a valuable skill. But when sentiments are attributed to me that are not true, it is necessary to respond.”
“My beliefs, commitments and loyalties are plain to see. The notion that I am serving for ‘the money’ or a ‘paycheck’ is absurd. As campaign manager, I made a fraction of what other consultants have made on unsuccessful presidential campaigns. Then I walked away from dozens of opportunities for millions of dollars, and instead walked into the White House. I would do it again. It is a privilege to assist President Trump in the White House, just as it was during the campaign. I know him, I respect him, I believe in him, and I am confident in his capacity to be a transformative and successful President.”

In a recent segment, Brzezinski suggested that Conway secretly hated Trump.
“This is a woman, by the way, who came on our show during the campaign and would shill for Trump in extensive fashion and then she would get off the air, the camera would be turned off, the microphone would be taken off and she would say ‘bleeech I need to take a shower’ because she disliked her candidate so much.”
Fox News host Tucker Carlson even commented on the incident, saying that the media has had it out for Trump and Conway since the beginning.
“Many journalists believe it’s literally impossible to be unfair to Donald Trump or the people who work for him . . . Extremism in the pursuit of Trump is no vice. That’s the view in newsrooms and you hear it in conversations all around Washington, a city that voted 91 percent for Hillary Clinton last fall… They’ve succumbed to Trump hatred that is so intense, it has destroyed their judgment and in some cases affected their character.”
