President Trump’s Adviser Kellyanne Conway has revealed that she was once sexually assaulted and she feels empathetic for victims of sexual assault.
She made this announcement while she spoke with Jake Tapper on CNN’s “State of the Union” and it’s something that most people did not expect to hear her say.
Tapper and Conway were discussing Christine Blasey Ford’s accusations against Brett Kavanaugh and that’s when Conway opened up about her past experience with being sexually assaulted. Conway defended Kavanaugh, but also expressed her feelings for anyone who may have been sexually assaulted.
People provided a brief rundown of the dialogue:
“I feel very empathetic frankly for victims of sexual assault, sexual harassment and rape,” Conway, 51, remarked during CNN’s State of the Union with Jake Tapper on Sunday morning.
The White House adviser then stopped to clear her throat before adding that she is “a victim of sexual assault.”
Conway went on to say that despite her personal experience — the details of which she did not share — she doesn’t believe that Kavanaugh should become a target of the #MeToo movement.
“I’ve just had it with it all being the same,” she remarked.
Following her admission, Tapper sympathetically said, “This is the first time I’ve ever heard you talk about something personal like that, and I’m really sorry.”

Conway didn’t seem to get into many details about what happened to her. Tapper asked about how she can work with President Trump when he has several allegations against him in relations to sexual assault or similar accusations. Conway defended the president by reminding Tapper about how Trump actually treats women, which is in stark contrast to what the liberal media outlets portray.
She also suggested that Tapper watch what he’s saying, telling him not to “conflate that with this, and certainly don’t conflate that with what happened to me.”
Conway believes that all sexual assault victims deserve to be heard. She also suggests that for victims to prosecute if they have a civil and/or criminal case that they can pursue.
She said “But we do treat people differently who are either the victims or the perpetrators of this, based on their politics now and based on their gender. And it’s a huge mistake.”
Conway compared former President Bill Clinton’s ability to remain in the White House after lying about his relations with Monica Lewinsky.
She pointed out that former President Bill Clinton was able to stay in the White House despite lying about having “oral sex” in the Oval Office.
That’s what many people call a hypocrisy.
Conway also spoke about the two women who helped trap Sen. Jeff Flake in an elevator, one of whom helps run an organization funded by Soros donations.
She said “I want those women who were sexually assaulted the other day who were confronting Jeff Flake, God bless them, but go blame the perpetrator,” said Conway. “That’s who’s responsible for our sexual assaults, the people who commit them.”
Is it political goals that caused the women to help confront Flake in an elevator? Why aren’t those women going after the people who sexually assaulted them instead of going after Senator Jeff Flake and trying to convince him to vote against a member of his own party? A member of his own party who has NOT been found guilty of any crimes, nonetheless.
Is that political motivation considering the one woman’s deep ties to the Democratic Party?
It seems like it, but you can make up your own mind.
I’m not sure what happened to Conway, but I hope that she’s doing well and maybe one day she will tell her full story.
