Kellyanne Conway Says She's Also A Survivor Of Sexual Assault—Then Puts The Blame On Victims 😡

By Dennis Matthew Livesey

Last Thursday, all eyes were on Washington, watching the dramatic testimony of Dr. Christine Blasey Ford and the fiery response from Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh as he denied having sexually assaulted Ford 36 years ago. 

The conflicting accounts triggered a limited F.B.I. investigation and gripped a nation fiercely divided by whom they believed.

Days later, presidential adviser Kelleyanne Conway weighed in on the matter while appearing on State of the Union and revealed to CNN's Jake Tapper that she, too, was a victim of sexual assault. 

Conway began, “I feel very empathetic, frankly, to victims of sexual assault, sexual harassment and rape." 

She then paused and cleared her throat before revealing to Tapper "I’m a victim of sexual assault."  

“I don’t expect Judge Kavanaugh or Jake Tapper or Jeff Flake or anybody to be held responsible for that,” Conway added. “You have to be responsible for your own conduct.”

Tapper responded, saying “This is the first time I’ve heard you talk about something personal like that and I’m really sorry.”
