Kellyanne Conway melts down when she’s asked to name one black senior adviser in Trump’s West Wing


During an interview on ABC’s This Weekprogram, host Jonathan Karl noted that former White House employee Omarosa Manigault said that she left her job after she began to suspect that the president is racist.

“She says she heard the president use racially-charged language even in the White House,” Karl noted.

“Why didn’t she tell us at the time?” Conway interrupted.

Karl also attempted to get Conway to explain who Trump was referring to when he described a group of neo-Nazis in Charlottesville “very fine people.”

“You’re not answering the question,” Karl observed after Conway refused to give a straight answer.

“Omarosa was the most prominent high-level African-American serving in the West Wing in President Trump’s staff,” Karl continued. “Who now is that person?”

“First of all, you’re totally not covering the fact that our Secretary of Housing and Urban Development [is Ben Carson],” Conway dodged.

“I’m asking you about the White House staff,” Karl pressed.

“The president works with Secretary Carson every day,” Conway droned.

“Who is that person?” Karl asked again.

“We have Jeron,” Conway said without offering a last name. “He’s done a fabulous job and very involved with Jared Kushner and President Trump on president reform. He’s been there from the beginning and he worked with Omarosa.”

“Does he have an office in the West Wing?” Karl wondered.

“He has an office in the Executive Office of the President,” Conway remarked.

“But not in the West Wing,” Karl concluded. “What does that say to not have a single senior adviser in the West Wing who’s African-American?”

“I didn’t say that there wasn’t!” Conway exclaimed.

“Who is?” the ABC stated, giving her another shot.

“There are plenty of people,” Conway stuttered. “You should look at the fact that we have a number of different minorities.”

    It’s very sad that Mr Trump and some others that represent our Nation, would try and bring our Nation back to such a dark time. People are people, no matter the race, color of skin, or what religion we are. Each person should be treated as equal to any other person.
    Why has Mr Trump lied about his promises, put down past Presidents, and said so many untruths about Hillary R. Clinton? Maybe, he is trying to get more attention on himself; instead of doing his Nationally mandated Job for the USA. I quoted this from Mr Trump, when he did his two day show talk with CBS’s Jeff Glor. “Yes, I will run for re-election. This JOB is FUN.” If Mr Trump was actually doing his JOB, he would have Americans being grateful and we wouldn’t have to worry about which Nation will try to take over our Nation first, or having to worry about Global Warming, or another CIVIL WAR.
    If Mr Trump really wanted to help our Nation be great, he wouldn’t be racist in what he SAYS or DOES. He wouldn’t just ask his friends what he should do on any topic. Instead, he would READ both sides of EACH topic, do his own investigations on each topic, and answer our Nation with truthfulness, as to what he believes is right. Then, and only then, will the USA know if Mr Trump is doing his JOB. It’s a hard job to run our Nation. If he thinks it’s fun, Mr Trump isn’t doing his homework. PERIOD!
