Kellyanne Conway was on Jake Tapper’s “The State of the Union” show and was being questioned about the Kavanaugh-Ford situation.
The interview started off with Tapper asking about the limited FBI investigation. He was trying to find out what a limited scope meant. Conway, who is not in the FBI, was unable to give Tapper any answers except to say that The White House had no intentions of interfering with the investigation.
Tapper then played a couple of clips including that of a woman who claimed Kavanaugh was blackout drunk. Which was just pure speculation with no proof, as she based this upon seeing him look inebriated. But then things took an unexpected turn when Conway talked about the sexual assault.
“I feel very empathetic, frankly, for victims of sexual assault and sexual harassment and rape. I’m a victim of sexual assault,” Conway revealed.
Conway went on to explain that she doesn’t immediately assume all men are equally guilty as some of these Kavanaugh protesters seem to believe.
“I don’t expect Judge Kavanaugh or Jake Tapper or Jeff Flake to be held responsible for that. You have to be responsible for your own conduct.”
“I want those women who were sexually assaulted the other day who were confronting Jeff Flake, God bless them, but go blame the perpetrator. That’s who is responsible for the sexual assaults, the people who commit them.”
Tapper then went to ask Conway how she felt about working for Trump when she was a past victim of sexual assault. But Conway was not interested in the CNN’s Trump hating and didn’t allow Tapper to bash the president.
“Don’t conflate that with this. And certainly, don’t conflate it with what happened to me. It would be a huge mistake,” Conway said. “Let’s not always bring Trump into everything that happens in this universe.”
Conway handled herself well being on CNN. Tapper tried numerous times to trip her up or throw ridiculous notions at her, but she didn’t put up with any of his BS. She made some great points that about Kavanaugh and sexual assault. The Democrats will have a tough time coming after her, as she knows sexual assault firsthand as a victim and still believes in Kavanaugh’s innocence.
