(Slay News) – Kellyanne Conway, a former senior adviser to President Donald Trump, has a new book out called “Here’s the Deal” where she sets the record straight and takes swipes at her enemies.
Kellyanne goes after Jared Kushner, Mark Meadows, her husband George, and based on a new excerpt, former Fox News host and current CNN host Chris Wallace. Wallace tried to ‘real-life bully’ Conway into talking about her marriage.
She writes: “This especially newsy weekend also included a surge in border crossings and Trump’s announcement that he was challenging Obamacare through the courts.
“I addressed all of that in response to Wallace’s questions. I held forth with facts and figures about the southern border and the state of healthcare and insurance coverage.
“Wallace, a ratings-hungry anchor, had a full plate of breaking news in front of him.
“But he still found time to fit the other Conway into my segment.
“He introduced a new spin on the matter, echoing a theory from New York Times columnist Maureen Dowd, who had told me at the British ambassador’s residence one night that she had declined an assignment from Vanity Fair to write a piece about George and me.
“As if he were covering the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989 or the building of the border wall in 2019, Wallace asked me a question about my husband: ‘Do you think he’s cyberbullying here to try to get you to quit?
“Do you think he’s jealous of your high profile?’”
“I had sadly and privately concluded that yes and possible were the answers to those questions, even though I was not going to be real-time and real-life bullied into discussing all this on national television.
“Rather, I quickly shut down the line of inquiry.
“My children did not need their parents attacking each other publicly.”
“I was speaking as a mother, not just as a senior counselor or a spouse.
“But Wallace, the hard-news guy, was unmoved. He persisted and went for the clickbait.
“I guess the question I have to ask, bottom line, final question: Has this hurt your marriage?”
“Oh, Chris, what are you, Oprah now? I mean, what am I — on a couch and you are a psychiatrist,” she said.
