White House adviser Kellyanne Conway is having zero success presenting herself and Donald Trump as champions of women’s rights – especially in light of Trump’s renewed endorsement of an accused child molester in the Alabama race for the U.S. Senate.
On Tuesday morning, Conway appeared on CNN and went round and round with host Chris Cuomo as the White House advertiser tried in vain to make sense of Trump’s support for Roy Moore while at the same time insisting Trump has “Tremendous moral standards.”
“He’d rather have an accused child molester than a Democrat?” Cuomo asked. Cuomo quickly found a major hole in that logic: “If you want to leave it up to the voters of Alabama, then stay out of it. You don’t vote in Alabama.”
But Trump won’t stay out of the race, and has gone all in on an accused child molester.
CONWAY: Are you telling the 9.1 million female small business owners in this country – and I was one for 22 years –
CUOMO: Now you want to fight for women? You’re endorsing Roy Moore, but now you want to hold women up on a pedestal?
It’s certainly a fair question. Over the years, nearly 20 women have accused Trump of sexually harassing or assaulting them.
And yet Conway sticks to her comical talking points about championing women.
