The Trump White House just defended Kellyanne Conway by brazenly lying about her comments

Published

on

Even though the Office of Special Counsel said on Tuesday that Trump adviser Kellyanne Conway twice violated the Hatch Act last year, the Trump White House is sticking to its guns — and is defending Conway by telling outright lies.

In a statement given to ABC News reporter Meredith McGaw, the White House insisted that Conway “did not advocate for or against the election of any particular candidate.”

However, an interview that Conway did in late November on Fox News shows that she directly urged Alabama voters to “not be fooled” into voting for Democratic Senate candidate Doug Jones, who went on to defeat Republican rival Roy Moore in the December special election.

“Doug Jones in Alabama, folks, don’t be fooled,” Conway said. “He will be a vote against tax cuts. He is weak on crime, Weak on borders. He is strong on raising your taxes. He is terrible for property owners.”

Although Conway ignored calls from Fox hosts to directly endorse Roy Moore, she did say the White House wanted “the votes in the Senate to get this tax bill through.” She then pivoted back to trashing Doug Jones.

“I just want everybody to know Doug Jones, nobody ever says his name and pretends he is some kind of conservative Democrat in Alabama,” she said. “He is not.”
