White House counselor Kellyanne Conway has some choice words for Hillary Clinton.
Clinton while speaking at Rutgers University in New Jersey on Thursday labelled her critics in the media and from within her own party as sexist for asking her to step aside from political life.
The failed 2016 presidential candidate said that male presidential candidates were not told to “shut up” after their election losses.
“I was really struck by how people said that to me… You know, mostly people in the press for whatever reason. Oh you know, go away. Go away,” Clinton said.
“I had one of the young people who works for me go back and do a bit of research,” she continued. “They never said that to any man who was not elected.”
Conway said that Clinton is “wrong” to compare herself to past failed male presidential candidates because “they were much more gracious” than she has been.
“She’s wrong in comparing herself to those male candidates, Republican and Democratic, who’ve lost presidential elections as well. They were much more gracious about it,” she said.
“And as for wanting to be part of the conversation, the only conversation she’s having these days is her and the 2016 election, when you’ve got Democrats wanting to move off of her,” said Conway.
She went on to say that if Clinton wants to be part of the national conversation, she should talk about the issues, such as infrastructure, opioids, healthcare and taxes.
“There are many conversations to be had. I don't see her out there talking about anything much beyond herself," Conway fired.
The media and even her fellow Democrats want Clinton to stop talking. They say her harping on the 2016 election and blaming everybody but herself is hurting the party’s chances going into midterm elections – not to mention her recent comments claiming white women were “pressured” by the men in their lives to vote for Trump, as if they didn’t have a say or the ability to stand up for themselves.
To the disappointment of her critics, Clinton insists that she’s not going anywhere anytime soon.
“I am really committed to speaking out and doing what I can to have a voice in the debate about where our country’s going,” Clinton told the crowd at Rutgers.
Meanwhile, President Trump and Republicans want Clinton to keep making appearances and outrageous remarks.
