Kellyanne Conway THUMPS Palmieri Again: Some People Are Not Over Their Anger and Denial (VIDEO)
Democrats are really angry about their loss. They are bitter and still can’t accept reality. That was apparent in a forum at Harvard featuring the managers of both campaigns.
Jennifer Palmieri of the Clinton campaign was nasty and lashed out but Kellyanne Conway of the Trump campaign gave her a dose of real life.
Here’s a partial transcript via the New York Times:
“I would rather lose than win the way you guys did,” Ms. Palmieri said.
Kellyanne Conway, who was Mr. Trump’s third and final campaign manager, asked, “How exactly did we win?”
She answered her own question: by connecting with voters in places “where we were either ignored or mocked roundly by most of the people in this room.”
“Do you think I ran a campaign where white supremacists had a platform?” Ms. Conway asked Ms. Palmieri. “You’re going to look me in the face and tell me that?”
Ms. Conway went on, pointing out Mrs. Clinton’s failings. “Do you think you could have just had a decent message for the white working-class voters?” she asked the Clinton advisers. “How about it’s Hillary Clinton, she doesn’t connect with people? How about they had nothing in common with her? How about you had no economic message?”
Here’s the audio:
Kellyanne Conway later said:
‘Some people are not really past the anger, grief and denial stages.’
She sure is right about that.
