Kellyanne Conway blames Kirsten Gillibrand for protecting Bill Clintonthere’s just one problem

Less than 24 hours after President Donald Trump sent an incendiary tweet casting doubts concerning the domestic violence accusations against lately vacated staff secretary Rob Porter, White House counselor Kellyanne Conway took to the airwaves to operate damage control. And in doing so, she claimed something flat-out false about Democratic Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, adding another entry to the long listing of untrue and misleading asserts she’s constructed in cable news interviews.

On Saturday, Trump tweeted that “Peoples lives are being shattered and destroyed by a mere allegation, ” an apparent response to Porter’s resignation.

The tweet elicited a sharp replies from Gillibrand, who replied that Trump “has shown through words and actions that he doesn’t value women, ” and suggested that if he “wants due process for the over dozen sexual assault accusations against him, let’s have Congressional hearings tomorrow.”

Appearing on ABC with George Stephanopoulos on Sunday, Conway dismissed Gillibrand’s criticisms, saying she didn’t “need a lecture” from the New York senator. She also derisively claimed Trump’s multiple sex crime accusers had their due process when they were “trotted out” during the course of its 2016 election.

“Those accusers have had their day on your network and elsewhere for a very long time, the latter are trotted out again late last year, and I don’t require a lecture from Kirsten Gillibrand or anybody else who protected and protected and harbored a sitting chairperson who had sex relations in the Oval Office, and was impeached for lying–I don’t require a lecturing from her or anybody else.”

Conway also noted that Gillibrand has since said that Clinton should have resigned. What she didn’t note, nonetheless, is that Gillibrand was not elected to the U.S. Senate until 2006, eight years after the Clinton impeachment. In 1998, she was still operating as an lawyer and had not yet entered the world of politics. To what extent a private citizen can meaningfully” protect, defend, or harbor” a sitting chairman is, to set it generously, unclear.

In an appearance on CNN’s State of the Union the same morning, Conway also stated she’s not worried about White House communications administrator Hope Hicks potentially becoming a victim of domestic violence, in part because of what a “strong” female she is, with” good instincts .”

Media reports have suggested that Hicks was involved in a romantic relationship with Porter when the domestic violence accusations violated; the sentiment that “strong” ladies don’t become victims of violence is widely considered a fallacious sort of victim-blaming.

This is not the first time Conway has trafficked in this kind of controversial rhetoric. In 2013, she suggested that if men and women were equals in physical strength, then” rape would not exist .”

When Tapper challenged Conway’s characterization, she backtracked, clarifying that” many girls get abused , no question .”
