Conway Denies Allegations That Scarborough Made About Her Disliking President Trump

Trump campaign manager turned adviser-to-the-president Kellyanne Conway has denied the claims of MSNBC “Morning Joe” co-hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski that she has privately complained about having to defend Donald Trump.

In a statement on Twitter earlier this week, Conway commented that her “beliefs, commitments and loyalties are plain to see.”

“The notion that I am serving for ‘the money’ or a ‘paycheck’ is absurd,” according to Conway’s statement. “As campaign manager, I made a fraction of what other consultants have made on unsuccessful presidential campaigns. Then I walked away from dozens of opportunities for millions of dollars, and instead walked into the White House. I would do it again.”

Scarborough and Brzezinski painted a different picture of Conway’s loyalties on their show.

“This is a woman, by the way, who came on our show during the campaign and would shill for Trump in extensive fashion, and then she would get off the air, the camera would be turned off, the microphone would be taken off, and she would say, ‘Blech. I need to take a shower,’ ” Brzezinski claimed. “Because she disliked her candidate so much.”

“She also said that this is just, like, my summer in Europe. This is like my vacay — I’m just doing it for the money,” Scarborough said. “I’ll be off this soon. I don’t know that she ever said, ‘I’m doing this for the money,’ but she said, ‘This is just my summer vacation, my summer in Europe.’ And, basically, ‘I’m just gonna get through this.’”

Of note, Conway had endorsed Texas Sen. Ted Cruz in the Republican primary before joining the Trump campaign.

Conway’s statement noted that has been “a privilege to assist” Trump as president, “just as it was during the campaign.”
“I know him, I respect him, I believe in him,” Conway went on. “And I am confident in his capacity to be a transformative and successful president.”

Keep in mind that the “Morning Joe” hosts banned Conway from appearing on their show after her bizarre and scary description of clearly false White House statements as “alternative facts.”
“The hosts of MSNBC’s Morning Joe have become virulent critics of the president and those close to him,” Conway stated “Ignoring insults and insinuations is a valuable skill. But when sentiments are attributed to me that are not true, it is necessary to respond.”
