Kellyanne Conway was bursting with pride for Sarah Sanders Saturday: ‘She knows I love her to begin with …’

Understanding firsthand the price for accepting such a role, Kellyanne Conway explained Saturday night why she is so proud of White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders.

Conway pointed to Sanders effectively throwing herself into the lion’s den Saturday night by representing President Trump at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner — the role would exact a dear price from Sanders, who was hit with vicious personal attacks at the event, which only bolstered Conway’s praise.

“I’m so proud of Sarah Sanders, I have to say,” Conway explained in a live interview with CNN’s Kaitlan Collins. “She knows I love her to begin with and respect her enormously, but she’s representing the president of the United States tonight at the head table.”

Trump skipped the event for the second consecutive year, which proved to be a wise decision as comedian Michelle Wolf, who headlined the dinner, used the occasion to launch a vicious attack on the president, his family and administration, to include both Conway and Sanders.

The vile comedian made fun of Sanders’ looks as she sat a few feet away, calling the president’s spokesperson a liar as every uncomfortable eye in the room searched her face for a reaction.

“I like Sarah, I think she’s really resourceful. She burns facts and uses the ash to create a perfect smokey eye,” Wolf said. “Maybe she’s born with it, maybe it’s lies.”

She’d go on to liken Sanders to an “Uncle Tom, but for white women who disappoint other white women”

Wolf called President Trump a “p*ssy,” joked about abortion and said first daughter Ivanka Trump was “about as helpful to women as an empty box of tampons.”

Indeed, Conway has every reason to be proud of Sanders, who should’ve gotten up in the middle of the uncalled for “performance” and walked out.
