Conway on Sexist Criticism: I’m Not Working At the White House to ‘Read About Myself’
During her Sunday appearance on Fox’s MediaBuzz, Kellyanne Conway said that she mostly tries to shrug off many of the personal or sexist things that people have to say about her in various forums.
After talking with Howard Kurtz about the effect of President Trump‘s Twitter antics, Conway was asked to react to a New York Times article titled: “Sexist Political Criticism Finds a New Target: Kellyanne Conway.” The piece explores how Conway been subject to the same kinds of taunts and personal insults that critics leveled against Hillary Clinton during the 2016 election.
Conway seemed appreciative of the article, but said she mostly tries to tune out pieces that are written for the purpose of critiquing or applauding her specifically. Conway also expressed her disappointment over the blowup caused by things like the infamous photo of her kneeling on an Oval Office couch during a meeting with leaders of historically Black colleges and universities.
“I’m there to serve the president, who’s there to serve the American people,” Conway said. “I’m not there to read about myself.”
Conway also took the opportunity to smack the rumors again that the Trump administration recently sidelined her from making any more TV appearances.
