President-elect Donald Trump’s top aide and former campaign manager Kellyanne Conway says she and the rest of women are tired of “the same argument,” this time brought up by a 17-year-old female student.
Maaike Laanstra-Corn, whose class was attending a Wednesday event sponsored by the University of Virginia’s Center for Politics
, asked Conway how she can “rationalize” working for a man who has bragged about sexually abusing women and approaching them without consent.
“Women are tired of the same argument and the same thing you are presenting to me right now,” Conway responded.
The top aide to the president-elect further suggested that other issues are more important than what was revealed in the 2005 recording
as well as myriads of other recordings, in which Trump (pictured below) makes offensive comments about women, including his own daughter, Ivanka
“I’m glad that people looked at [those attacks] and said, ‘You know what? That’s an argument that will not create a single job in my community, not bring back a single of the 70,000 factories that have been closed, will not deter one member of ISIS from doing their bloodletting here or anywhere else in the world,” Conway stated.
The 49-year-old also attacked Democratic nominee Hilary Clinton for failing to garner any more than 56 to 57 percent of the female vote.
Apart from winning that, Clinton (pictured below) also managed to win the popular vote across the country by more than two million votes on November 8.
“She should have gotten 60 or 62 percent of the female vote,” Conway said.
Trump’s lewd comments failed to stop his supporters from voting for him although it shocked the rest of the world and even the Republican bigwigs.
After the New York real estate magnate said that the comments he made in the video were just talk and he had never behaved that way, more than a dozen women went public with allegations of sexual harassment against him going back more than 30 years.
Later, he even threatened to go after any woman who makes such accusations against him.
