Conway: Democrats Have Time to ‘Cry and Weep’ at Airports, But Not to Go Vote?

White House counselor Kellyanne Conway continued her attacks on Democratic politicians’ protests against the Donald Trump travel ban order, saying on Fox News’ MediaBuzz Sunday that they should go consider Trump’s nominations instead.

Conway denounced the Democratic effort to delay Jeff Sessions‘ confirmation as Attorney General, saying they only wanted to “humiliate and embarrass” the Alabama Senator. “As we sit here right now we have a record number of unconfirmed nominees to a presidential cabinet: eleven, including Treasury and Commerce,” she noted.

“The Democrats want to go on the record, they have time to go and cry and weep at the airport protesting something that they’ve completely bastardized as to what it is and what its intent and what its effect is, this immigration order,” she complained.

“And yet they don’t have time to give a fair hearing, an up-or-down vote on these nominees?” Conway asked. “You want to vote against, vote against. But at least give people a hearing and the decency of a vote.”
