Kelian Conway, a former White House adviser to Republican President Donald Trump, tweeted Tuesday night that Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi exposed “Thin Skin + Thick Skull” in a controversial interview with CNN.
During an interview with CNN, presenter Wolf Blitzer asked Pelosi about her refusal to consider a $ 1.8 trillion stimulus package proposed by the Trump administration.
Pelosi called Blitzer, an “apologist” for Republican political positions, and added: “You really don’t know what you’re talking about.
The Democrat also condemned the anchor, which he allegedly blamed for the suffering of Americans amid the economic downturn, without discussing the content of Trump̵
“She’s so rough. Thin skin + thick skull = bad combination,” Conway tweeted Tuesday, along with a report on Pelosi and Blitzer’s fiery argument.
Since joining Trump’s campaign team in 2016, Conway has strongly defended the president from criticism and attacked his political opponents. During her tenure, a group of guards claimed that she had violated the Hatches Act more than 60 times. The Hatches Act is a law that prohibits executive officials from using their position to influence elections or for political purposes.
In late August, Conway announced his intention to leave the White House by early September to focus on his family. Both her eldest daughter, Claudia Conway, and her husband, George Conway, were vocal opponents of Trump.
In early October, Claudia Conway revealed in TikTok that her mother had tested positive for COVID-19 after attending a masked, non-socially distant event in the White House Rose Garden. At least 11 other participants in this event tested positive for coronavirus.
Conway later confirmed that she had tested positive for COVID-19. Although she has been in quarantine since then, she continues to write in support of Trump’s re-election campaign.
At the beginning of his term as Trump’s spokesman, Conway defended the claims of then-White House spokesman Sean Spicer about the size of the crowd for Trump’s inauguration.
The fact-finding website PolitiFact, The Poynter Institute, gave Conway a 90 percent rating for making either “mostly false” or completely “false” statements when she was a White House official.
Newsweek contacted Conway for comment.
