Conway Retweets Self-Proclaimed White ‘Nationalist’, Claims She Doesn’t Know Who Used Her Account
The Twitter account for White House counselor Kellyanne Conway retweeted a white nationalist Tuesday, only for Conway to then tell reporters she didn’t know who was in control of her account at the time.
Conway quote-tweeted and praised an account with the innocuous sounding handle “Lib Hypocrisy.”
But the description for the accounts reads “#WhiteIdentity, #Nationalist.” The account took umbrage at those who claimed it was “white nationalist,” with the owner calling such charges “libel.”

…even though their account is filled with tweets like this.
By far the angriest, most aggressive tweets I get are from low-IQ black women…

When asked by Buzzfeed about the tweet, Conway told them that she “did not know who had access to her Twitter account.”
“I’ve never heard of Lib Hypocrisy obviously. I denounce whoever it is. I’m going to find out who’s tweeting it. It will be immediately deleted. Everybody makes mistakes,” she told them.
