Watch Kellyanne Conway Hug All The Guys on ‘The Circus’…Except Mark Halperin

Earlier this week, CNN published a bombshell report revealing a number of women had accused political pundit Mark Halperin of sexual harassment during his time at ABC News in the mid- to late-90s. Since that story came out, other women have come forward to accuse Halperin of sexual misconduct and it has been noted that Halperin’s behavior was an “open secret” in the industry.

In the wake of these revelations about Halperin, a moment from his Showtime political series The Circus now stands out. As highlighted by RawStory, then-Trump campaign manager Kellyanne Conway — a veteran pollster who has been in the politics/media arena since the mid-90s — excitedly greeted Circus co-hosts Mark McKinnon and John Heilemann with enthusiastic hugs at a campaign event.

But she did not hug Halperin.

What does this mean? Maybe nothing at all. But in light of the “open secret” about Halperin which has come to the fore this week, this would certainly seem to be footage worth revisiting.
