Kellyanne Conway has taken numerous jabs at Hillary Clinton, calling her “graceless,” “dangerous” and less popular than her husband Bill, but on Sunday, she added a new smear to her list: “the queen of abortion.”
In a Fox & Friends interview that morning, Conway, who serves as a counselor to President Donald Trump, bashed Democrats for what she described as their failure to focus on an array of issues rather than just one, taking aim at women’s right to choose in particular.
“I have noticed, also, that the Democrats aren’t talking much about abortion this time and that’s because they tried that for so long,” she said. “They tried it with the queen of abortion in 2016 and it backfired for then because so many women said, ‘Excuse me, you have to talk to me on all the issues.'”
After slipping in that nickname, Conway then asserted that what mattered to suburban women were matters like “the booming economy, law and order, and respecting military and veterans for the first time in years.”
Shareblue’s Tommy Chirstopher , noting Conway’s swipe at Clinton on Twitter, wondered whether ‘Queen of Abortion’ outranks the title”commander of cheese“, which is something she actually called Trump on live TV last summer.
Yep, this happened: Kellyanne Conway calls Hillary Clinton “The Queen of Abortion,” which, as far as I know, outranks “Commander of Cheese.” pic.twitter.com/POHL2Es1W1

Unlike that flub, though, Conway obviously meant this one to be as mean as it sounded.
