A feud has erupted between Kellyane Conway and Nikki Haley over a tweet from President Donald Trump targeting Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-MD).
“Really bad news! The Baltimore house of Elijah Cummings was robbed. Too bad!” the president tweeted on Friday.
Haley, who served as ambassador to the United Nations from 2017 to 2018, tweeted in response, “This is so unnecessary.”
Kellyanne Conway, who works in the Trump administration, responded to Haley’s tweet with only four words.
“THIS is so unnecessary,” she wrote. She then added, “Trump-PENCE2020.”

Some see Conway’s tweet as her telling Haley that the chances of her taking Pence’s vice president slot in 2020, something that has been speculated about by some, are exactly zero thanks to this new tweet.
“She’s basically saying you’re not getting on the ticket, Nikki Haley, if you want to, but that’s her way of pushing back without creating a real war between Nikki Haley and the president,” Republican strategist Susan Del Percio told MSNBC.
She added, “She’s definitely sending a message that we’re behind Pence.”
Trump’s tweet has gotten him expected criticism from the left, and it once again shows that in this feud between he and Cummings, the media is focusing more on tweets than an elected official ignoring his duties and his struggling congressional district.
While plenty of leftists have attacked Conway for her tweet, she has also received support for calling out Haley.
“Lefties are like children. Just put them in time out,” one Twitter user wrote in response to Conway and Haley’s feud.
Another responded, “Nikki who?”

While Conway went after Haley for her tweet, her husband, George, celebrated the tweet and encouraged more from Haley.
“Come on out, Nikki, the water’s warm. Be on the right side of history. Be on the right side,” he wrote in response to Haley’s tweet.
Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW) flagged Conway’s tweet and claimed it is a violation of the Hatch Act, a loose rule that says executive branch employees cannot use their positions to influence the result of an election.
“Violating the Hatch Act after you should have already been fired for violating the Hatch Act doesn’t make it any less of a violation,” CREW tweeted in response to Conway’s tweet.

Accusing Conway of violating the Hatch Act shows just how desperate the left is. If there’s one thing that angers the left more than a conservative, it’s a female conservative. That’s when the sexist claws come out. Just look at some of these sexist responses from the left to Conway’s tweet:
“Violating the Hatch Act, for the umpteenth time, is so unnecessary. Stop breaking the law. Consult your husband,” one user responded.
“Go talk to George whom it seems you must no longer confer with. He will tell you exactly what is unnecessary. Btw hope he get custody as seems you have completely lost it,” wrote another.

Apparently, when a leftist is faced with a conservative woman who disagrees with them, it’s perfectly acceptable to attack her over her looks and to tease her for somehow not having her husband’s approval to voice an opinion. Ridiculous. Enough with the Hatch Act violations. Enough with the sexist attacks. Conway is right. Haley’s tweet is unnecessary. Time to get serious. Instead of focusing on tweets, leftists need to start worrying about struggling cities like Baltimore because that is exactly what the president is doing.
