Trump White House counselor Kellyanne Conway continued the administration’s attacks on Stanford law professor Pamela Karlan on Thursday, as she accused the constitutional scholar and Trump impeaching hearing witness of holding ordinary American voters in contempt.
During an appearance on “Fox & Friends,” Conway looked directly into the camera and told average Americans that Karlan sees them as her inferiors.
“If you went to work today to manicure nails, to manicure lawn, if you went to work with a jackhammer, or a welding machine, or mechanics’ tools, or a carpentry belt… that woman yesterday looks her nose down on you, she thinks you are less than her!” Conway fumed. “I’ve had it! You know why that man ran for president in the first place, for the forgotten man and the forgotten woman, you know why I’m still in the White House? For you!”
Conway continued her diatribe against Karlan by disparaging her “three Yale Law degrees.”
“Who the hell are you, lady?” she fumed. “You look down on half the country… she hobnobs with the elite!”

‘This ends badly for Trump’s lackeys’: MSNBC’s Morning Joe warns GOP senators they’re doomed for opposing impeachment
MSNBC's Joe Scarborough ripped Senate Republicans for selling their souls to President Donald Trump -- and risking their political careers.
The "Morning Joe" host praised Rep. Adam Schiff's impassioned plea to GOP senators in the impeachment trial, but lamented that his appeal likely fell on deaf ears.
"It's a fear of those who follow Donald Trump, who follow Donald Trump in the Republican Party," Scarborough said. "It's a fear of losing a primary election, and, then, yes it is a fear for many of these people, and I consider it to be extraordinarily weak of them, of Donald Trump criticizing them, or tweeting attacks at them."
Trump impeachment defense team may be forced to change tactics to hold off GOP defections: report
According to a report from Axios, Donald Trump's defense team is considering an attempt to shorten the president's Senate trial in order to get it over quickly as Democrats try to pry away Republican defectors.
The report states that "A truncated defense would likely reflect a decision not to contest facts or defend Trump point by point, but rather to try to diminish the legitimacy of Democrats' overall case and end the trial as quickly as possible."
Speaking with reporters, Trump attorney Jay Sekulow stated, "We’re not going to try to run the clock out," before adding that he hopes to warp up “Saturday or Monday or Tuesday."
Fox News legal analyst bucks his network and lays out why Trump’s attack on impeachment is bogus
Judge Andrew Napolitano has been one of the political wild cards at Fox News: like his colleague Chris Wallace — but unlike so many others at the right-wing cable news outlet — Napolitano doesn’t see it as his job to reflexively defend everything President Donald Trump says and does. And Napolitano, in an op-ed published on Fox News’ website this week, takes issue with Trump’s assertions that his impeachment trial in the U.S. Senate is a “hoax.”
