Yesterday, Morning Joe hosts Mika Brzezinski and Joe Scarborough raised eyebrows when they revealed a bombshell they’d learned about Trump’s favorite White House Counselor, Kellyanne Conway, while having her on their show.
Deciding that the time was right, the two hosts revealed that Conway had previously expressed that she secretly hates Trump and is only “doing this for the money.” Brzezinski and Scarborough stated that once the cameras were turned off, Conway became someone completely different than the woman we often see defending Trump and trying to hype him up. The two hosts said:
“This is a woman, by the way, who came on our show during the campaign and would shill for Trump in extensive fashion and then she would get off the air, the camera would be turned off, the microphone would be taken off and she would say ‘bleeech I need to take a shower’ because she disliked her candidate so much.”
Today, Conway has hit back, furious over the “insults and insinuations” made by Brzezinski and Scarborough. In response, Conway made a lengthy statement calling the claims “absurd”, which she posted to Twitter. Here it is in all of its glory:

It’s clear that Conway is desperately doing damage control – just like she does with Trump – and is trying to clean up this mess as fast as possible. She has every reason to be nervous, too – as it’s recently been reported that unhinged Trump currently wants to fire nearly his entire administration.
It’s very likely that Morning Joe’s recollection of Conway’s statements about Trump are true – don’t forget that before Conway joined Trump’s presidential campaign last year, she was rather critical of him. Conway has long been noted for doing just about anything for money, and her role in Trump’s team is probably the same.
