Conway Snaps Back After Pelosi Treats Her Like a ‘Maid’

By Samuel Allegri

Adviser to the president Kellyanne Conway criticized Pelosi for treating her as a “maid,” as she told her version of what happened during her encounter with Pelosi in the White House on May 22.

She said that she asked Pelosi respectfully to “address some of the specifics the president talked about,” and that went on, “She said … ‘I talk to the president, I don’t talk to staff,’ You know, let’s face it, she’s the sixth-most-rich member of Congress. She treats everybody like they’re her staff,” Fox News reported.

“She treats me like I’m either her maid or her driver or her pilot or her makeup artist and I’m not. And I said to her ‘how very pro-woman of you’ … she’s not very pro-woman, shes pro-some women, a few women,” said Conway.

Pelosi declined to comment on the encounter later on Thursday morning. “I’m not going to talk about her. I responded as the speaker of the House to the [president]. Other conversations people want to have among themselves is up to them,” Pelosi said.

President Donald Trump suspended bipartisan legislative efforts with the Democrats on May 22 until the Democrats terminate an onslaught of investigations targeting the White House.

Trump made the announcement after House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) accused him of engaging in a “cover-up” shortly before arriving at the White House with Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) to speak with Trump about a bipartisan effort to secure funding for infrastructure.

Pelosi levied the “cover-up” accusation after meeting with House Democrats amid pressure to begin impeachment proceedings against the president.

“We’re going to go down one track at a time,” Trump said at a press conference in the Rose Garden at the White House on May 22.

The president described the two tracks as “investigations” and “investment” and called on Democrats to “get these phony investigations over with.”

Pelosi, speaking to reporters after the special impeachment session, said that “we believe the president of the United States is engaged in a cover-up,” referring to resistance from the White House to several Democrat-led inquiries in the House of Representatives.

Trump said in on May 22, that he has been probably the most transparent president in the history of the country. Denying the accusation of Pelosi that he was doing a coverup.

“I don’t do cover-ups, you people know that probably than anybody,” said President Trump.

While Pelosi opposes impeachment, a small group of Democrats sees stonewalling by the White House as a justification to begin impeachment proceedings. The list of Democrats openly calling for impeachment grew to 30 lawmakers on May 22, according to a list compiled by The Hill.

“So sad that Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer will never be able to see or understand the great promise of our Country,” Trump wrote on Twitter, after Pelosi responded to his announcement.

“They can continue the Witch Hunt which has already cost $40M and been a tremendous waste of time and energy for everyone in America, or get back to work. But they really want a do-over! You can’t investigate and legislate simultaneously—it just doesn’t work that way,” he added.

“Democrat leadership is tearing the United States apart, but I will continue to set records for the American People.”
