Kellyanne Conway: ‘Anyone Currently in Public Office’ Who’s Mistreated Women ‘Should Step Aside’
Donald Trump Adviser Kellyanne Conway Says Sexual Predators Should Step Aside
Defending Republican Roy Moore has been so difficult, many of his fellow Republicans have rightly denounced him. They have done this by going as far as saying his actions are disqualifying for him to be a Senator. But as Donald Trump adviser Kellyanne Conway found out this morning, saying just that puts them in a bit of a pickle in regards to the president.
Conway was interviewed by Martha Raddatz of ABC and was pressed on what the Senate candidate from Alabama should do. The Trump adviser was clear about her denunciation of Moore and said, if the allegations are true, he should step aside. The exchange began:
RADDATZ: Do you have any doubt about the veracity of those accusations?
CONWAY: I said very early in this process that the conduct as described should disqualify anyone from serving in public office and I’ll stand by that.
Conway goes on to say Moore has denied the conduct but dodges as to whether she truly believes the accusations.
She then flat-out states anyone acting the way Roy Moore allegedly acted should leave or not seek office because this country can “do better” in finding qualified candidates.
CONWAY: If there’s anyone currently in public office who has behaved that way to any girl or woman, maybe they should step aside.
The White House adviser then subtly alludes to the fact the person she works for has his own sordid history. She explains:
CONWAY: I tried to raise this issue a year ago on October 9th. I said explicitly that I had been a victim of people in power and nobody took me seriously. And you know why? Because of who I worked for, whose campaign I was managing.
In other words, Kellyanne Conway tacitly admitted that her boss Donald Trump has a very problematic past with women, including infamously admitting in a recorded conversation he had sexually assaulted women. The president has faced accusations from numerous women and his campaign was recently subpoenaed for documents related to his actions. The White House has stated their official position is that all of his accusers are liars.
Conway made general accusations against members of Congress last year, but did not name any that she says she witnessed acting inappropriately or forcing themselves on women.

As for Roy Moore, a new poll shows he is now running four points behind his opponent, Democrat Doug Jones. Moore had been consistently leading in virtually every poll prior to the allegations by four women. Strangely enough, however, more than one-third of Evangelicals stated the accusations made them more likely to vote for the Republican in the December 12th special election.
