Sparks flew between former President Donald J. Trump and Kellyanne Conway who served as senior White House counsel during his historic tenure at the nation’s helm, vehemently disagreeing with a claim in her new book which was released this week.
Conway, who was also Trump’s 2016 campaign manager has been hitting the media circuit to promote her tell-all account of her tumultuous time in the administration. She raised the ire of her ex-boss with her account that she told him that he had lost the 2020 election, a contest that Trump continues to contend wasn’t on the up-and-up.
According to her book “Here’s the Deal: A Memoir,” Conway wrote, “I may have been the first person Donald Trump trusted in his inner circle who told him that he had come up short this time.”
“It wasn’t the result I wanted. It wasn’t the result some 74 million Americans — by far the largest number of people ever to vote for an incumbent president — wanted,” she added.
It was a statement that drew a strong response from the ex-POTUS who rebutted her account via his Truth Social media account, also jabbing her “crazy husband,” serial-tweeting Never Trumper George Conway.
“Kellyanne Conway never told me that she thought we lost the election,” Trump wrote. “If she had I wouldn’t have dealt with her any longer – she would have been wrong – could go back to her crazy husband,”
“Writing books can make people say some very strange things. I wonder why?” Trump asked. “Got 12 million more votes than we did the first time, the most votes, by far, of any sitting President. The election was RIGGED. They used Covid to cheat and steal, and the evidence is massive and indisputable.”
“See ‘2000 Mules,” Trump added, referring to the movie by Dinesh D’Souza on irregularities in the 2020 election, specifically ballot trafficking.
In Conway’s new book, she blames many of those close to the former and possibly future president for not leveling with him that he had come up short in the election, instead promising him “goods they could not deliver” and derogatively referring to them as “supplicants, sycophants and showmen.”

“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,” according to Conway.
In other tidbits from “Here’s the Deal: A Memoir,” she claims that Trump almost dropped out of the 2016 presidential race over the infamous “Access Hollywood” tape, ripped Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner as “shrewd and calculating” and dished on her troubled relationship with her “crazy husband” George who constantly undermined her with Twitter hot takes on her boss.

“Clearly he was cheating by tweeting,” she wrote. “I was having a hard time competing with his new fling.”
