Kellyanne Conway Calls Her Critics 'Miserable' People
Lately, Conway has spent much of her time making the rounds on Fox News and conservative radio in an attempt to promote the Republican’s new health care plan, which has been a divisive subject among conservatives. But many television news shows are still reluctant to book her due to her tendency to spread falsehoods and inaccurate information.
"Every time I've ever seen her on television, something's askew, off, or incorrect," Morning Joe co-host Mika Brzezinski said last month, citing it as a reason she wouldn’t book Conway on the show.
Despite the blowback, Conway is following her boss’s lead in refusing to back down from her critics, especially when it comes to the phrase she inadvertently made viral.
Philly.com reports that in a new interview with New York Magazine’s Olivia Nuzzi, the South Jersey native defended the use of "alternative facts" and noted the phase has a broader meaning: “additional facts and alternative information.”
“Two plus two is four. Three plus one is four. Partly cloudy, partly sunny. Glass half full, glass half empty. Those are alternative facts,” Conway said.
“Anybody who pretends I’m not smart or not credible, it’s like, ‘Excuse me, I’ve spoken 1.2 million words on TV, okay?,’ ” Conway told Nuzzi. “You wanna focus on two here and two there, it’s on you, you’re a f****** miserable person, P.S., just whoever you are.”
