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.”

Trump shows all the signs of being ‘rattled’ now that the White House is under siege from protesters: columnist
In a column for the Atlantic, longtime political observer Peter Nicholas stated that Donald Trump is showing all the signs of a scared man as massive protests have broken out across the country over the murder of George Floyd at the hands of four former Minneapolis cops -- and angry Americans are taking their case all the way up to the White House gates.
As Nicholas wrote, "Presidents live within a protective cocoon built and continually fortified for one purpose: keeping them alive. But inside the White House compound these days, Donald Trump seems rattled by what’s transpiring outside the windows of his historic residence."

In an interview with MSNBC's Molly Hunter, a Black Londoner explained why he turned out for a protest near Trafalgar Square in support of Americans who have hit the streets in the U.S. over the murder of George Floyd by four former Minneapolis police officers.
According to the man -- identified as Daniel and who was wearing a COVID-19 mask and a New York Yankees hat -- his brother was also murdered by police and the cops walked free.

Denver cops busted for doing drive-by shootings of anti-police brutality protesters
In a video posted to Twitter, a young Denver man protesting the killing of George Floyd at the hands of four former Minnesota police officers, found himself on the receiving end of an attack by police himself as he filmed them riding on the side of a truck -- only to have his phone hit by a fired police projectile while still in his hand.
According to Rachelle D'nae, a staff writer at Slate, her brother went to the Denver protest and was filming the officers when the incident occurred.
"My older brother went to a protest in Denver last night. as the police were leaving, one of them shot him with a pepper pellet that smashed the back of his phone and exploded in his face. they were ~30 feet from each other and it looks like the officer aimed directly at his face," she wrote before adding in a second tweet, "when my brother told me he was going I prepared for the worst. I made sure he had my number memorized so I could bail him out if I needed to and I sat up until he made it home, trying not to cry as he told me he had been tear-gassed."
