Kellyanne Conway made some questionable comments as she addressed Donald Trump's latest Twitter mess. The White House advisor came to the defense of the president, as per usual, on CNN's State of the Union Sunday morning.
The President sent out an anti-#MeToo message yesterday in the wake of the resignation of former staff secretary Rob Porter, who was slammed with domestic abuse allegations. "People's lives are being shattered and destroyed by a mere allegation," Trump wrote. "Some are true and some are false. Some are old and some are new. There is no recovery for someone falsely accused—life and career are gone. Is there no such thing any longer as Due Process?"
Conway also asked George Stephanopoulos on ABC's This Week, "Why would someone like me and other women work there?" She continued to say, "He has many times come to the aid of women privately. That’s the Donald Trump I see and I know." She also said she has "no reason to not believe the women" that accused Porter.
Senator Kirsten Gillibrand had a very different reaction to Trump's tweet. The New York Democrat offered Trump his own due process through hearings of the several accusations of sexual assault against him. "The President has shown through words and actions that he doesn’t value women," she tweeted. It’s not surprising that he doesn’t believe survivors or understand the national conversation that is happening." In the following tweet, she said, "The lives of survivors of sexual assault and domestic abuse are being shattered every day. If he wants due process for the over dozen sexual assault allegations against him, let’s have Congressional hearings tomorrow. I would support that and my colleagues should too."
