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.”

US withholds cash from UN Population Fund over China abortions
The United States said Tuesday it will again withhold contributions to the UN Population Fund due to its work with China, which controls family size, as the agency accused Washington of jeopardizing women's health.
It marked the third straight year that the United States has refused to fund the UN body as President Donald Trump's administration seeks to combat abortion, a pivotal issue for his evangelical Christian base.
Secretary of State Mike Pompeo determined that "China's family planning policies still involve the use of coercive abortion and involuntary sterilization practices," conditions that under US law require an end to funding, a State Department spokeswoman said.
Kim Jong-un threatens to restart nuke tests as Trump’s efforts to talk to the regime fall apart again: report
On Tuesday, CNN's Brian Todd reported that the North Korean regime is on the brink of rescinding what little they promised President Donald Trump, as the future of his efforts to continue talks appear uncertain.
"Kim Jong-un's regime is once again in negotiation by intimidation," said Todd. "Just two weeks after their historic meeting at the DMZ, and President Trump's short stroll into North Korea, North Korea's dictator Kim Jong-un appears to be threatening to start testing his nuclear weapons again. In a new statement, Kim's foreign ministry calls the joint U.S./South Korean military exercises planned for next month a breach of the main spirit of what President Trump and Kim agreed to in Singapore, and says, 'We are gradually losing our justifications to follow through on the commitments we made with the U.S."
