White House adviser Kellyanne Conway suggested on Wednesday that Vice President Mike Pence is the victim of “sexist” news coverage which does not report on his wardrobe.

While speaking to reporters outside the White House, Conway reacted to the news that Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) had been selected as Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden’s running mate.

Conway argued that other women — like herself — had made history before Harris was chosen as the presumptive vice presidential nominee.

“We can’t say certain words or certain words mean a certain thing,” Conway opined. “And I’d be careful about that, not just because all of those words are said by all of you about people like me but also because I guess we don’t treat all women the same, especially women who were the first and made history. But that’s alright. I’ll have my say one day.”

Conway went on to note that she was “the first woman to run a Republican presidential campaign and the first woman ever to successfully manage a presidential campaign.”

The presidential adviser then attacked the media for not giving Pence the same kind of coverage as Harris.

“People excited about what jacket she’s going to buy,” Conway said of the Harris’ coverage. “And just giggling, some girl time in a dressing room.”

“You have The New York Times do a big spread, I mean, a wall-to-wall picture of Kamala Harris as opposed to Mike Pence,” she continued. “So I really hope we’re going to see fair coverage because America deserves that.”

“Instead of saying, ‘You look nice in this jacket,’ and by the way, how sexist,” Conway said, “I guess the best question for Kamala Harris is, do you support defunding the police? Joe Biden has said he doesn’t.”

Published

"In the spirit of RBG, we will not allow a double standard in how our Congress deals with late-term Supreme Court appointments."

Taking Sen. Lindsey Graham up on his 2016 advice to use his words opposing the nomination of Judge Merrick Garland against him should a Supreme Court seat open in the final year of a Republican president's first term, a group of demonstrators gathered outside of the South Carolina Republican's Washington, D.C. residence early Monday morning demanding that he oppose the filling of late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg's seat until after the November election.

Lindsey Graham ‘is in danger of an upset’ loss: top elections forecaster

Published

on

Sen. Lindsey Graham's (R-SC) re-election campaign looks increasingly in peril, according to one of America's top elections forecasters.

The latest update from the University of Virginia's Center for Politics claims that Graham today "is in greater danger of an upset" than he was just weeks ago, which has led to a ratings change in Graham's race against Democratic rival Jamie Harrison from "likely R" to "leans R."

Among other things, the Center for Politics points to Harrison's gaudy fundraising numbers as too big to ignore.

Trump openly admits he’s fast-tracking SCOTUS nominee to rule on ‘fake ballots’ during contested election

Published

President Donald Trump is openly admitting he's wasting no time, fast-tracking the replacement for Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg to help him during a contested election.

Speaking on "Fox & Friends," Trump on Monday said because of "fake ballots," he does not want a 4-4 Supreme Court ruling on the election, should there be one. There is zero evidence of fake ballots.

Trump suggests though he wants a confirmation vote before the elections, citing election disputes and his baseless claim of “fake ballots” being filled out. We don’t want a 4-4 tie at the court, he said
