Jake Tapper calls out lib mag for ‘egregious’ Kellyanne Conway headline – turns out, he’s right!

CNN host Jake Tapper came to the defense of Kellyanne Conway, calling out a liberal online magazine for a misleading story on the former Donald Trump campaign manager.

The headline of a story published by Slate on Wednesday read, “Kellyanne Conway Suggests That Women With Kids Shouldn’t Take Jobs in the White House.”

But Conway said no such thing, according to Tapper who cited two other women in the room.

Apparently, Conway’s actual quote never suggested that all women with children should not have jobs in the White House. She appeared to be speaking about herself and that men she spoke to did not want their wives working in the White House.

According to a Politico story:

Conway said she intends to remain connected to Trump once he takes office but implied that it would be nearly impossible for her to take on an official White House role and be a mother to her four children, all of which are younger than 12, at the same time.

“I do politely mention to them the question isn’t would you take the job, the male sitting across from me who’s going to take a big job in the White House. The question is would you want your wife to,” Conway said, describing conversations she’s had with male colleagues. “Would you want the mother of children to? You really see their entire visage change. It’s like, oh, no, they wouldn’t want their wife to take that job.”

Tapper’s fake news alert caused many others on Twitter to agree.
