Chris Christie: Kellyanne Has ‘Gotten a Bad Rap’ Because of ‘Some Really Awful People Inside’ WH

Failed presidential candidate, former New Jersey governor, and infamous beach-goer Chris Christie responded to internal critisms of White House counsler Kellyanne Conway by defending her, telling the New York Times she has an undeserved “bad rap.”

Christie, who has a personal relationship with Conway after the two worked together on the administration’s opioid messaging, claimed Trump’s right-hand woman has attackers  coming from within the White House. “She has this unique position that she’s earned,” Christie said. “She’s gotten a bad rap at times, but I think that’s because of some of the really awful people inside the White House who have been trying to hurt her, as opposed to anything the press came up with on its own.”

While fellow Donald Trump allies and seasoned White House officials continue to be ousted or leave voluntarily leave their positions, Conway has proven her durability by staying on the inside, despite the constant chaos and controversy that surrounds her.. Christie explained his reasoning on why she has managed to remain effective in her role, saying, “I think that she is the president’s political adviser and she is someone who is very skilled on television. She’s unique in the White House in someone who can give him both political and policy advice.”
