Kellyanne Conway Fights Back Against Gross Generalization of Conservative Women

During an appearance on Fox & Friends Sunday, White House counselor Kellyanne Conway spoke about the midterm elections and labeled Hillary Clinton the “Queen of abortion.”

During the segment,  with host Katie Pavlich, the new article from The New York Times attack women voting for Trump, that they are afraid of losing the “world they largely know – Christian, conservative, and white.”

Pavlich then stated: “So if you’re a woman supporting Trump, you’re a racist.”

Conway replied: “That’s completely ridiculous, as you know. Women are – they put a lot into their voter consideration. They are not single issue voters; we’re not single issue thinkers. We can do the math. We see the economy. In fact, the economy for women is the best it’s been in decades, literally…

“Women see that growth is above 4%; unemployment is below 4%. Best unemployment figures among women in 65 plus years. The deregulation has helped so many small business-owning women and aspiring small business-owning women to go ahead and form those businesses, to expand them, to hire – not to contract, but to expand. And women know, even beyond the economy, what this president has done in terms of law and order, and respecting our military, and our veterans; border security is national security.”

Conway then took on Democrats, noting how abortion has vanished from their platform.

“I’ve noticed also that the Democrats aren’t talking much about abortion this time, and that’s because they tried that for so long. They tried it with the “queen of abortion” in 2016 and it backfired for them because so many women said, “Excuse me, you gotta talk to me on all the issues.”

“So I think women in the suburbs – for all the talk about them “not liking tone,” they know the difference between what offends them and what affects them, and what affects them is this booming economy, law and order, and respecting our military and veterans for the first time in years.”

To Hillary Clinton, Conway slammed the former Presidential candidate as the “queen of abortion,” the former senator’s record as a champion for abortion rights is clear.

In January 2016, Clinton stated:

First of all, I will always defend Planned Parenthood, and I will say consistently and proudly, Planned Parenthood should be funded, supported, and appreciated, not undermined, misrepresented, and demonized. I believe we need to protect access to safe and legal abortion, not just in principle, but in practice.
