Special Counsel to the president Kellyanne Conway dropped a truth bomb on those who have insulted President Donald Trump and other members of the White House: They don’t care.
As IJR reported earlier this week, Congresswoman Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) told Fox News’ Guerin Hays that she wasn’t comparing former President Barack Obama to Trump, despite having said that Obama was just a “more polished” politician.
Omar instead claimed that she didn’t think that Obama was just “more polished,” rather she thinks that Trump isn’t even comparable because he’s “really not” human.
Watch Omar’s comments:
Fox News’ Guerin Hays asks Ilhan Omar about last week's Politico article: “Do you think President Obama is the same as President Trump?”
Omar: “Absolutely not. … One is human the other is not”

Omar’s comments are not the first time President Trump or members of his team have been smeared or assaulted by people who disagree with their politics. While Omar’s dehumanizing comments bothered many, it doesn’t seem like Conway or the rest of the administration cared in the slightest.
During an interview with “Ingraham Angle” host Laura Ingraham on Fox News, Conway explained why she just doesn’t care when she or other members of the White House are attacked anymore.
Watch Conway’s comments:
“The word dehumanization absolutely applies to the way so many people have treated those of us who work in the White House, but so what? I’m going to give you a little news flash: We don’t really care. They’ve been trying to cut us down and push us out since we’ve arrived and those of us who are there for the right reasons and surviving all of this and thriving beautifully — it doesn’t matter.”
Conway noted that the harsh language from people like Rep. Omar and gaffes from candidates like Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) further separates Democrats from the claims that they are the party that’s “for all women” and “independent thinkers.” She thinks this rhetoric will thwart Democratic hopes for the White House in 2020.
“Stop the nonsense, everybody, about ‘we are for all women, we are pro-women. We are for independent thinkers.’ Elizabeth Warren is running for president. She tried to appropriate somebody else’s ethnicity. She lied about that. […] I like to say, I don’t see any presidential timber, yet. Only presidential wood chips.”
Prior to her time in the White House, Conway managed President Trump’s 2016 campaign, making her the first woman to guide a presidential campaign to victory.
