Author Takes Kellyanne Conway To Task For Her Hypocritical Criticism Of Hillary Clinton

Kellyanne Conway

Author Molly Knight just took Kellyanne Conway to task over her criticism of Hillary Clinton. Conway, Counselor to Trump, was quick to jump on Clinton for taking a few days to respond to the news that Hollywood executive and Democratic donor, Harvey Weinstein was being accused of casting-couch abuses and predatory behavior towards women. Stars like Gwyneth Paltrow and Angelina Jolie are claiming he harassed them.

Both Clinton and Michelle Obama expressed disgust at Weinstein’s alleged actions, though he made large donations to their “war chests,” according to CNN.

Kellyanne couldn’t resist jumping in to insult Clinton on Twitter, while making a dig at her over her stance on common-sense gun-control:

It took Hillary abt 5 minutes to blame NRA for madman’s rampage, but 5 days to sorta-kinda blame Harvey Weinstein 4 his sexually [sic] assaults.

That’s where Molly Knight comes in. She destroys Conway’s credibility on the matter in under 140 characters:

It’s been 368 days since your boss bragged about grabbing women by the pussy, @KellyannePolls. Still waiting for you to denounce.

Kellyanne Conway and anybody who voted for Trump gave a pass to him for what he called “locker room banter,” but to millions of American women and men, it should never have been rationalized away –especially for someone holding the office of President. They all shrugged it off, and Kellyanne should be the last person to criticize anybody about their slightly-delayed response to the Weinstein allegations.

When Clinton did respond, she noted, “Any man who demeans and degrades women in such fashion needs to be condemned and held accountable, regardless of wealth or status.” That certainly sounds like an indictment of Donald Trump and Weinstein’s characters.

The one-year anniversary of the release of the Access Hollywood video that revealed Trump’s predatory bragging over sexual assault took place days ago. Feminist group, UltraViolet, marked the occasion by projecting the video on a big screen near the Washington Monument. Kellyanne and many Republicans may like to conveniently forget, but we never will.
