Just when you think George Conway, the louse of a husband to White House counselor KellyAnne Conway, couldn’t sink any lower, he breaks out a shovel and digs deeper to try to exploit an alleged rape victim to get his Trump-hate on.
Not that Juanita Broaddrick was going to let the slight go unopposed.
Seizing on the fanciful sexual assault allegation leveled against President Trump by Elle advice columnist E. Jean Carroll, Conway brought up Broaddrick, who accused President Bill Clinton of raping her in the 1970s, to say that Republicans “would be hypocritical” to believe what her and not believe Carroll.
In a Washington Post op-ed, Conway wrote that Carroll’s allegation, publicly spoken for the first time in a new book she has out, is “at least as compelling as Broaddrick’s — if not more so.”
Conway said before she went public with her story, Broaddrick had previously denied it happened — he would be torn to shreds by the left for shaming a rape victim, but is granted a reprieve because he’s using the incident to attack Trump.
He added that “the sheer number of claims that have now surfaced against Trump” supports Carroll’s claim that she was raped in the mid 90s by the real estate tycoon in a Bergdorf Goodman luxury department store on Fifth Avenue — in the middle of rush hour.

Taking to social media, Broaddrick called Conway a “Sleazy Loudmouth” and said his decision to reference her was “disgusting.”
She tweeted: “George Conway is a Sleazy Loudmouth wanting to use my name and credible account of my rape by Bill Clinton to promote his agenda. How disgusting.”

For the record, other than a photo of Trump and his wife at the time, Ivana, talking to Carroll’s then-husband, news anchor John Johnson, at an NBC party around 1987, with Carroll also present, the president said in a release he “never met this person.”
“I’ve never met this person in my life,” Trump said in the statement. “She is trying to sell a new book — that should indicate her motivation. It should be sold in the fiction section.”
One note: In a new statement from Trump in response to E. Jean Carroll, he claims that he has never met Carroll, but the article includes a photo of "Carroll, Donald and Ivana Trump, and Carroll's then-husband, television-news anchor John Johnson, at an NBC party around 1987." pic.twitter.com/1ex00TCb7A

As a celebrity, he can’t be expected to recall everyone who spoke to him at a random party.
Somewhat oddly, when asked about filing criminal charges against Trump, Carroll said it would be “disrespectful” to illegal immigrant women who are raped in their trek to America.
“I would find it disrespectful to the women who are down on the border who are being raped around the clock down there without any protection,” she explained to MSNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell. “It would just be disrespectful if I – and mine was three minutes, I’m a mature woman.”
While Broaddrick will never be supported by the national media, social media is a different game. In fact, not only was she supported, sympathy was even extended to Kellyanne Conway for being married to this “sleazeball.”
Here’s a sampling of responses from Twitter:
Well said Juanita

So… are they saying that after decades of outright denial, the left now believes @atensnut??? And that they would be hypocrites to deny and disbelieve all the women who accused Clinton?

I’m struggling with this, I don’t want to be a hypocrite-but if I apply the same level of inquisition to most of his accusers that I did to you, I’m left with more questions about their behavior and motives that you never once left me with. Never.

They call out all hypocrisy except their own. Isn’t that one of Alinsky’s rules? Accuse others of what you are guilty?

The Democrats over played their hand with Kavanaugh. I don’t believer her. A billionaire that she could have exposed , sued and slander back in the nineties and chose not to. I’m not buying it .

He is such a sleazeball, I feel sad that a great woman Kellyanne Conway is married to him.
