Kellyanne Conway became one of Donald Trump’s most hated minions due to her alternative facts, but in a new interview she actually told the truth for once – and it didn’t work in Trump’s favor at all.
Conway went on ABC’s This Week and actually acknowledged the fact that despite how much Trump cries about fake news and phony polls, or how much he denies that his fan base is rapidly shrinking, he’s definitely losing support with his voters.
Conway has been one of the most loyal people Trump has in the White House, regularly cleaning up his messes and lying to protect him. But this time, she actually admitted that Trump’s approval ratings were suffering among Republican voters.
According to a recent Quinnipac University poll, Trump’s approval rating is at an abysmal 33%, with more Republicans than ever stating that Trump was “unfavorable”. Conway didn’t deny the latest data (for once) and actually talked about the decrease in Republican support, even as Trump continues to tweet about how popular he is. Possibly trying to give her boss a nudge while he’s on his 17-day vacation, Conway stated that the decrease in conservative support might be voters’ way of telling Trump to stay focused and keep working to deliver his campaign promises. Conway said:
“His approval rating among Republicans and conservatives and Trump voters is down slightly. It needs to go up. They are telling him just enact your program. Don’t worry about a Congress that isn’t supporting legislation to get big ticket items done. And don’t worry about all the distractions and diversions and discouragement that others, who are trying to throw logs in your path, are throwing your way. Focus on the agenda. And he’s doing that.”
Okay, the part about “he’s doing that” is a lie, but everything else Conway said was uncharacteristically honest. Conway’s words are extremely surprising, especially since Trump spent his morning bragging about how strong his fan base was:
It must be humiliating to be fact-checked by someone on your own team. You can watch Conway trash Trump with the truth below:
