"Morning Joe" Hosts Question Conway's Loyalty To Trump - This Is Her Response

Presidential aide Kellyanne Conway is denying a political commentator’s claim that she “disliked” Donald Trump as a candidate in last year’s campaign, Yahoo News reported.

The former campaign manager, who is now a counselor to the president, used Twitter on Tuesday to push back against Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski, who host MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.” Conway argued that her “beliefs, commitments and loyalties are plain to see,” adding: “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.”

During Monday’s “Morning Joe,” Brzezinski was referring to Conway when she remarked: “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, ‘Blech. I need to take a shower,’ because she disliked her candidate so much.”

Scarborough added: “She also said that this is just, like, my summer in Europe. This is like my vacay — I’m just doing it for the money. I’ll be off this soon. I don’t know that she ever said, ‘I’m doing this for the money,’ but she said, ‘This is just my summer vacation; my summer in Europe,’ and, basically, ‘I’m just gonna get through this.’”

Yahoo News pointed out that Conway is a veteran Republican strategist and public-opinion pollster who initially supported Texas Sen. Ted Cruz for the 2016 GOP presidential nomination. She tweeted that it is “a privilege to assist” Trump as president, “just as it was during the campaign.” She continued: “I know him, I respect him, I believe in him, and I am confident in his capacity to be a transformative and successful president.”

Scarborough and Brzezinski have been at odds with Conway for months. In February, the hosts announced they would no longer invite the aide to speak on their show. They ridiculed Conway’s insistence that there are “alternative facts.” The counselor responded on Twitter: “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.”
