David Corn's Teen Daughter Asks Kellyanne Conway How She Can Work For An Accused Sexual Predator

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/teen-asks-trump-aide-how-she-can-work-for-an-accused-sexual-predator_us_58403da3e4b017f37fe2edae

On Wednesday morning, The Hill reported that Conway was speaking at an event in Washington, D.C. that was sponsored by University of Virginia’s Center for Politics. When Conway opened the floor to questions, a female high school student asked the senior Trump advisor how she can “rationalize” working for a man who has been accused of sexual assault.

“Donald Trump has negated claims that he sexually assaulted women but also admitted to a tape where he seemed to be describing sexual assault,” the student asked, according to Politico. “How do you rationalize that as a woman and also as his campaign manager?”

The young woman (who was later identified as the daughter of Mother Jones reporter David Corn) was referring to the “Access Hollywood” video leaked in October that featured Trump bragging that he grabs women “by the pussy.” At the time, many Republicans condemned Trump for the video, but Conway was measured in her response. She called Trump’s language “disgusting” yet still defended him by saying he was “gracious and a gentleman.” The President-elect has also been accused of sexually assaulting over a dozen women.

According to AP reporter Steve Peoples who was live-tweeting the event, the teen’s question was met with applause from the crowd.

2. Conaway's reply was typically evasive.

She said:

“For you to use sexual assault to try to make news here I think is unfortunate, but it also doesn’t matter because Donald Trump promised he’ll be a president of all Americans.”


Which in no way answered the young woman's question.

Best description of her I've heard. There are so many good ones but somehow "worm" just fits.

Thank you.

5. Kellyanne is quite adept at running her mouth for long periods of time without addressing

the subject at hand. Also, telling total falsehoods with a straight face is another of her accomplishments.

7. It also doesn't make any f*** sense!

I abhor Kellyanne and all the women who defend him. If he doesn't 'grab them by the pussy' does that mean he finds them hideous? Probably. Kellyanne must be too old and scrawny for him.

33. The next question in response to that should had been.

Would you had been okay with Trump sexually assaulting you or is sexual assault okay as long as it wasn't against you?

Not sure what you find wrong with the headline.

12. That's true, but he has also admitted to grabbing people by the pussy

 

He has bragged about this. And once that is cited , there is no he said she said which his defenders so love to employ...

I think the headline is too soft on him. He has not only been accused, he has confessed.

the whole sexual assault issue because he only said it himself.

17. I agree.

Women liked Bill. They still do. And no matter what has been done to smear Bill, I think he likes women, too. He likes smart women like Hillary, Janet Reno and Madeline Albright. Trump dismisses any woman who does not meet his strange idea of beauty, or who cannot be used in some way.

20. That was the distinction between Bill and Trump in my very humble opinion.

I never felt that Bill Clinton's advances were forced. Maybe I'm naïve, but I just never had the feeling that he was taking advantage of anyone.

Trump, on the other hand, just makes me want to go take a shower and run.

16. This woman is as mentally disturbed as trumpo.

She is worse than alaska barbie because she knows exactly what she is doing... rather, she she sees herself but hides from herself,, same as trumpo..

Palin, on the other hand, is actually too dumb to know that she even exists.

31. I wouldn't count Gloria out.

They witch-hunted Bill to show that a President could be dragged into court for something that happened before he took the office. Now it is Trump's turn. And I hope they do not all settle, and allow him to get off without an admission of guilt. I hope Gloria has a few of them who want to take it to trial and force him to show up. No settlement, no way!

21. Obviously well-raised, that young woman. David Corn should also be remembered for

having first reported the Mitt Romney "47%" video that was the presidential candidate's undoing. Ed Schultz (presently a reporter for Russian television) tried to steal his thunder, but David Corn deserves the credit.

23. Hey CONway you really have no PRINCIPLES-------NONE

and to think you are in it for what exactly ( to raid the rights of seniors, students, the country from its national treasury to give to your corrupt cabinet and staff), to be the fascist, bigot and fraud because that's what you are, a fascist, bigot and fraud that supports a serial predator.

I don't know how you sleep at night, you really have no "moral" conscientiousness do you CONway.

So when you go around and promote your values why don't you just stay home CONway, take heed someone might ask you a question that will need a response, you might not like.

You really are disgusting, he is not a gentleman, he is a human PIG, did you hear that CONway, he is a human PIG


I just love that David Corn's daughter put this person in her place---good for her. I bet CONway is going to ask in typical fascist form for list of people in the audience before she speaks, to weed out the masses that don't like her, just wait and see.

25. Trump is NOT gracious or a gentleman!

Even if he shows “gracious and gentlemanly” behavior to some people some times, that doesn't make him “gracious or a gentleman” in actuality.

A truly gracious gentleman would never behave the way Trump has repeatedly behaved, or if one did, it would be a rare occurrence for which he would apologize profusely and sincerely.

...Ms. Fitzpatrick-Conway is probably past the age that would interest The Donald. Also, many of his voters feel that's the way women should be treated.

28. The important thing here is "confessed", not "accused".

I would have no qualms about working with an accused sexual predator, *if I believed that the accusations were false*.

But we have video footage of Trump confessing to making a habit of sexual assault.
