White House counselor Kellyanne Conway on Sunday slammed House Majority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) for taking a Christmas vacation in Hawaii instead of working to fund President Donald Trump’s border wall.
During an interview on Fox News, host Sandra Smith asked Conway about her expectations for the New Year.
“The Democrats have to come back,” Conway insisted. “Nancy Pelosi needs to come back from Hawaii — less hula, more moola for the DHS Customs and Border Patrol, funding our border security. They need to come to the table and do their job. A fully-functioning Democracy demands that both parties come together and that the Congress and the executive branch work together.”
Although Pelosi is expected to assume the position of Speaker of the House under the new Congress, Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI) currently controls the House of Representatives.
Conway also thanked Democrats for making “joyful noises” about funding infrastructure.
“The president will continue to focus on a robust economy, immigration, foreign policy and really make people understand that that 2.6 percent raise that he promised the military… take that to the bank,” she opined. “The worked to allow us to have this conversation, particularly as women in a thriving democracy.”

R. Kelly associates charged with intimidating singer’s accusers
Federal prosecutors on Wednesday announced the arrests of three alleged associates of R. Kelly, saying that they used harassment and threats to try to silence women accusing the disgraced singer of sex crimes.
For more than a year the artist born Robert Sylvester Kelly has been awaiting trial in several states for alleged wrongdoings including sex crimes against minors and child pornography.
He has pleaded not guilty to all charges, which range across the states of Illinois, Minnesota and New York.
In filings released Wednesday, prosecutors say three members of the artist's circle -- Richard Arline Jr., Donnell Russell and Michael Williams -- have been engaged in separate bids to silence Kelly's accusers in the New York racketeering case against him through intimidation, harassment and bribery.
