Kellyanne Conway uses Super Bowl to trash Hillary: 'The Patriots are like that woman whose name I don't mention'
Kellyanne Cownay speaks to Fox News (screen grab)

Counselor to the president Kellyanne Conway on Monday used a discussion about the upcoming Super Bowl to take a shot at former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

During an appearance on Fox & Friends, Conway praised Eagles NFL players for not taking a knee during the national anthem, which many players have done throughout the season to protest systemic racism.

Conway, who is an Eagles fan, noted that President Donald Trump has a friendship with Patriots owner Bob Kraft.

"The Patriots are in the Super Bowl again and they haven't been in the Super Bowl since last year," she snarked. "We were so happy to have the Patriots here [at the White House] last year when they won. But we want to have the Eagles here this coming year."

Conway added: "And I'll just say that the underdog here is the Eagles and you know me, I love an underdog. The Patriots are like that woman [Hillary Clinton] whose name I don't mention on TV anymore. People always count out the Eagles."

In a recent appearance on CNN, Conway insisted that "nobody" at the White House talks about Clinton.

"We don't care about her. Nobody here talks about her," Conway told CNN host Chris Cuomo. "Nobody here talks about Hillary Clinton, I promise you."
