In a truly bizarre and startling broadside on Friday, White House counselor Kellyanne Conway lobbed a blatantly sexist accusation against House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who accelerated the drive for impeaching President Donald Trump this week.
Conway accused Pelosi of doing “the worse thing a woman in power can do, which is she just changes her mind because the men around her said, ‘change your mind.’ We need an impeachment.’” She made the remarks to reporters at the White House.
Conway also pushed a line other defenders of the president have relied on, saying that it was ridiculous that Pelosi and the Democratic Party broadly decided to push for an impeachment inquiry before seeing a transcript of Trump’s July 25 conversation with the Ukrainian president.
