Kellyanne Conway wasn’t really feeling the love Tuesday morning, after Today host Matt Lauer told her her responses made no sense when she appeared to dodge his repeated questions about Gen. Mike Flynn’s resignation as the National Security Adviser. So when Twitter user, Lib Hypocrisy, complimented her for her “strength and resiliency in face of vile hatred, bigotry, & sexism of the unhinged Left,” and said “Love you!” Conway responded gratefully.
Conway not only retweeted Lib Hypocrisy’s tweet, but also told the Twitter user, “Love you back” and wished her “Hapless Haters” a happy Valentine’s Day. Which was sweet and all, except that Conway expressed her love for a white nationalist. Conway told BuzzFeed News on Tuesday, “I don’t know who had access to my account.” “Let me see who tweeted that,” she said. “That’s terrible.” Conway said she had “obviously” never heard of Lib Hypocrisy.
Conway’s tweet was deleted immediately after speaking to Buzzfeed. All of us have retweeted an appealing or amusing message without scrutinizing the profile of the person who sent it. But claiming that somebody else did it? Classic lying Propaganda Barbie. (Also the Pepe emoji should have been a giant flashing signal.)
