White House counselor to the president Kellyanne Conway took a shot at Lisa Page on Monday after the former FBI attorney spoke about President Donald Trump’s harassment of her.
Page explained to The Daily Beast in an interview that she was prompted to come forward after the president of the United States publicly humiliated her.
“Honestly, his demeaning fake orgasm was really the straw that broke the camel’s back,” she told the publication. “I had stayed quiet for years hoping it would fade away, but instead it got worse.”
Later on Fox News, Conway was asked for the “White House official reaction” to the interview.
Conway admitted that she had not discussed the interview with the president.
“I can’t believe she actually thinks it is the president who has kept her quiet,” Conway opined. “It sounds like she’s very rattled every time the president tweets something out. It sounds like she is very rattled in that interview.”
“She also suggested she was being harassed,” Fox News host Bill Hemmer pointed out.
“Well, that’s the way she feels,” Conway snapped. “It wasn’t the president who revealed [her affair with a colleague], it was The Washington Post who revealed that she was having a relationship with a colleague in their text messages.”
“I actually think that she feels really sorry for herself,” she continued. “If she were a career lawyer with the FBI and DOJ, she could have stayed on that job, nobody here removed her. She quit voluntarily.”
Before signing off, Conway took one more shot at Page.
“I’m not a woman who feels sorry for myself,” she quipped. “That’s my message of the day. I hope my three daughters are watching.”

There’s no respite from Trump’s vindictiveness and foolishness
As we know, even in the midst of a national emergency, Donald Trump could find time and bandwidth to continue his retribution campaign.
He dismissed Michael Atkinson, the inspector general for the intelligence agencies, for doing “a terrible job,” satisfying his own thirst for vengeance for anyone who actually adhered to law and practice over blind loyalty to Trump himself. Indeed, asked about it the next day, Trump underscored his action by saying, Atkinson “was no Trump supporter, that I can tell you.”
It was an act that we once would have labeled corruption, by Democrats and Republicans – that is using the office for personal purposes – if Congress and too many Americans had not since become inured by so many like instances.
This is how Taiwan and South Korea bucked the global lockdown trend
As the coronavirus pandemic sparks global lockdowns, life has continued comparatively unhindered in places like Taiwan, South Korea and Hong Kong after their governments and citizens took decisive early action against the unfolding crisis.
At first glance Taiwan looks like an ideal candidate for the coronavirus. The island of 23 million lies just 180 kilometres (110 miles) off mainland China.
Yet nearly 100 days in, Taiwan has just 376 confirmed cases and five fatalities while restaurants, bars, schools, universities and offices remain open.
The government of President Tsai Ing-wen, whose deputy is an epidemiologist, made tough decisions while the crisis was nascent to stave off the kind of pain now convulsing much of the rest of the world.
Republican ex-lawmaker with coronavirus scolds Wisconsin GOP for forcing voters to risk their health
On CNN Tuesday, former Rep. Charlie Dent (R-PA), who is himself dealing with a bout of COVID-19, chastised the Wisconsin GOP for doing everything in their power to block the state elections from being moved — and forcing many voters to stand in line and risk exposure to the virus to cast their ballot.
"I have to tell you, here in Pennsylvania we have a Democratic governor and Republican legislature," Dent told host Don Lemon. "They postponed the election here from April 28 until June 2. Without any controversy. Everybody agreed it was the right thing to do and they moved on. I'm surprised Wisconsin took this risk, knowing they don't have to."
