Kellyanne Conway blames ‘supplicants, sycophants and showmen’ for not leveling with Trump about election loss

Former White House adviser Kellyanne Conway is claiming in her new book “Here’s the Deal,” that supplicants, sycophants, and showmen refused to level with former President Donald Trump that he actually lost the 2020 presidential election and instead promised him “goods they could not deliver.”

Conway lays the blame on Trump’s team for encouraging his belief that the election was stolen from him.

“Despite the mountains of money Trump had raised, his team simply failed to get the job done. A job that was doable and had a clear path, if followed,” Conway charged.

“Rather than accepting responsibility for the loss, they played along and lent full-throated encouragement (privately, not on TV) when Trump kept insisting he won… The team had failed on November 3, and they failed again afterward. By not confronting the candidate with the grim reality of his situation, that the proof had not surfaced to support the claims, they denied him the evidence he sought and the respect he was due. Instead supplicant after sycophant after showman genuflected in front of the Resolute Desk and promised the president goods they could not deliver,” she claimed.

“I may have been the first person Donald Trump trusted in his inner circle who told him that he had come up short,” she claims in the book. She argued that questioning the election results doesn’t automatically make someone the “QAnon Shaman,” but then went on to write that “stuck in a parallel universe, many Trump supporters deluded themselves into thinking that somehow the president would remain in office or be reinstated once gone. Trump was more shocked to lose in 2020, I think, than he was to win in 2016,” Conway added.

The 500-page memoir also attacks Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner, calling him “shrewd and calculating” and that he had an unassailable position of power.

The book ostensibly recalls her time working as a campaign manager and then as a White House counselor for Trump. Conway left her position in the Trump administration in August 2020, before the presidential election took place, due to family issues.

One section notably goes after the former president over his pandemic response which will almost certainly not win her points either with Trump or with Americans in general.

“Looking at Trump across the Resolute Desk, I could picture all five presidents standing there, lending their support to him as he tackled this ‘once in a century’ pandemic,” Conway noted. “He declined.”

Conway also wrote in her book that inviting Scott Atlas, who was the radiologist and political commentator who became one of Trump’s top COVID advisers, into the White House allowed the president to “pick the science he wanted.” She stated that Trump should have followed the example of some of his staffers and his wife, Melania Trump, and worn a mask, asserting that when he encouraged people to do so on Twitter, it received a massive response.

“The president could have ignored those who were telling him that wearing a mask ‘is like Dukakis with the helmet in the tank,'” she continued.

Conway writes that four years ago, on her 50th birthday, she watched as Trump took the oath of office. Four years later, she watched Joe Biden ascend to the presidency. “It didn’t have to be this way,” she writes.

She ends her book on an upbeat note for the country… not so much for her husband, Never-Trumper George Conway.

“Democracy will survive. America will survive,” the former Trump adviser writes. “George and I may not survive.”

Conway is making the rounds promoting the book. Tuesday, she appeared on “The View,” where the leftist co-hosts literally drooled over her saying that Trump lost the election.

“I want to talk about the ‘big lie,’ the stolen election,” co-host Sunny Hostin said confronting Conway on the subject. Hostin added, “People around him lied to him and told him he won. Did you lie about him winning?”

Conway said she “never” lied to Trump about the election results. Then Hostin wanted to know if Conway agrees that Trump “lost both the popular vote and electoral college and that it was a free and fair election?”

“I think it’s pretty obvious that Joe Biden is the president,” Conway replied. “I can’t believe we’re still talking about this, respectfully.”

“I write extensively in this book, that I’m the closest person to Donald Trump to tell him, the earliest, that he came up short. It broke my heart. I wanted him to get re-elected,” she remarked.

“He should have won huge. He had all these accomplishments, he’s running against a guy stuck in the basement, and you’re in the middle of the pandemic,” Conway charged.

Despite Conway’s admission about the election, she was booed by the audience and co-host Whoopi Goldberg admonished the audience to knock it off.

“Let me do something before you say anything else. Listen, this is ‘The View,’ and this is her view and she’s talking about how she feels and what she knows, please don’t boo her,” Goldberg chastised the audience.

Conway quipped, “I think they’re booing [Joe Biden] staying in the basement.”

Her tome is set to be released on Tuesday, May 24.

  4. BS. Pure bull. She should have left Conway. Instead she’s listening to him. Trump won. Voter fraud defeated him. I’m quickly losing respect and do not believe a word she says. Biden did not win! An insult to the American people. FJB

    1. Lost mine when her insane husband and flighty daughter didn’t cause her to seek a divorce and an exocism!

  5. Sorry Kellyanne, but I don’t agree with you. I believe that the election WAS stolen from Trump by Dominion machines changing Trump votes to Biden, and absentee ballots appearing out of nowhere, in the middle of the night ! Our country would be in so much better shape, if Trump was our President, as Biden has proven with EVERY terrible decision that Joe Biden has made.
