White House counselor Kellyanne Conway was in rare form Wednesday, as she likened presumptive 2020 Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden to a frat boy for declaring that he’ll pick a woman to be his running mate.
Among the potential running mates reportedly being considered is Susan Rice, who currently finds herself at the center of the Mike Flynn set up fiasco.
“You’ve seen the long and shortlist of Joe Biden’s VP choices. They all happen to be female,” Conway said during an appearance on Fox News’ America’s Newsroom. “He sounds like a co-ed at the end of a frat party — I need a woman!”
Conway threw the left’s reaction to failed 2012 Republican nominee Mitt Romney’s infamous “binders full of women” remark in their face.
“So now he has binders of women he’s looking through, and he’s got people like Sally Yates and Susan Rice allegedly on this list, and those are two women who were very involved in the shenanigans that were happening in the days before we got here,” the White House aide observed.
Acting Director of National Intelligence Richard Grenell just declassified a Jan. 2017 email that former national security advisor Susan Rice wrote to herself recapping an Oval Office meeting with then-President Barack Obama that contradicts a claim she made during a PBS interview she knew “nothing” about incoming national security advisor Mike Flynn being targeted by the FBI.
“She can’t be trusted and she’s proved that,” Conway said of Rice. “And I think the very easy question she would be asked in a debate against Vice President Mike Pence, which he clearly would win, is well, what did you know and when did you know it? Why are you writing e-mails to yourself? Why are you saying one thing on TV?”
She went on to point out that when Rice was asked by a network anchor if she could rule out that President Trump is a Russian asset, the former Obama official “basically shrugged her shoulders.”
“She couldn’t rule out that the current President of the United States is a Russian asset,” Conway said. “So, she lacks credibility.”
She also had a ready answer to those who are now using the coronavirus pandemic to say it’s time to move on.
After noting the president and the White House coronavirus task force have been “working day and night” on the global pandemic, Conway said the administration can also pursue accountability.
“We can also have the proper authorities go back and see who knew what,” Conway explained. “Because this country was dragged through the ‘Russia Collusion’ delusion illusion nonsense — Mueller Investigation, Mueller hearings, Mueller Report, Mueller testimony for over two years and we paid for it.”
“We have a right to get that to its logical conclusion which means, look at the other side of the coin here,” she concluded.
