Fox & Friends Challenge Kellyanne Conway Over Alabama Race: ‘So, Vote for Roy Moore?’

In the political space that exists between building support for the current tax reform bill and the Alabama Senate race, the Trump Administration finds itself in a bit of a tight spot.

This was in full view today when White House counselor Kellyanne Conway appeared on the normally friendly confines of the very pro-administration program Fox & Friends, which seemed to actually confront the Trump administration over their lack of political leadership in the senate race in Alabama between Judge Roy Moore (and his numerous allegations of sexual misconduct over the past few decades) and the Democratic candidate Doug Jones.

After Conway spoke at length about the need to elect officials that are copasetic with a pro-growth, pro-tax-cut Republican agenda, co-host Brian Kilmeade asked: “so, vote for Roy Moore?”

Conway deflected by calling Doug Jones “an indoctrinate liberal,” leading Kilmeade to repeat his question.

“I’m telling you that we want the votes in the Senate to get this tax bill through,” Conway replied, before bringing up Sen. Al Franken’s allegations of sexual misconduct.

(Reminder: Conway said just last week, with regards to the Moore allegations, “that there is no Senate seat worth more than a child.”)

President Donald Trump has cooled his support of the politically radioactive Moore, but this White House has yet to pull support or declare opposition to the Republican candidate.

Not your typical fare for the normally pro-Trump program and Conway seemed rather put 0ff in her medium after dealing with a tough question. But kudos to Kilmeade, and his c0-hosts, for asking a tough question.
