Kellyanne Conway jabs Pelosi: ‘Nothing screams youth and energy like a 78-year-old speaker’

January 3, 2019

White House adviser Kellyanne Conway said Thursday it was “poor form” for the incoming Speaker of the House to personally attack President Trump.

Ms. Conway dismissed Rep. Nancy Pelosi’s comments on NBC’s Today Show that Mr. Trump doesn’t know how to deal with powerful women, citing the number of women he has placed in the administration.

The incoming Speaker -- to come in and say to try to insult the president personally is very poor form, Ms. Conway told Fox News.

Nothing really screams youth and energy like a 78-year-old speaker and Joe Biden running for president, she added, taking a swipe at the Democratic Party leadership.

Ms. Conway was responding to Ms. Pelosi’s interview with NBC that aired Thursday morning, hours ahead of her expected vote to become the 63rd Speaker of the House.

“I dont know if he [Trump] knows how to deal with women in power and women with strength, but well see. Lets hope for the best in that regard,” Ms. Pelosi said.
