In an announcement that is sure to give the Left fits, Trump insider Kellyanne Conway said she’d probably turn down a full-time job offer from President-Elect Donald Trump. She’s too busy.
Being a mom.
At a “Women Rule” forum Washington, the senior advisor to the incoming president said that she’d do whatever was asked – with one big exception.
“In terms of going into the West Wing, I will do whatever the president-elect and the vice president-elect… believe is my best and highest use for them. But I know the relationship will be the same, so I’m not worried about it,” Conway told Anna Palmer at POLITICO’s Women Rule event. “Call it the Kellyanne role. Somebody said that recently, so I like that, and I know what that means.”
She said that her four children, aged 12, 12, 8 and 7, meant that it was “bad idea, bad idea, bad idea, bad idea for mom going inside [The White House].” Her kids, she said, “have to come first, and those are very fraught ages. Turning down a White House full-time gig would be “my personal choice and not a demand on me,” she said.
She did say that she’d continue to advise Trump, much in a way that David Plouffe and David Axelrod have advised Barack Obama – from the outside, because “outside super-structure is important, too.”
“In the short term, we do need what I call this surround sound super-structure outside,” she said, describing it as a political operation led by someone the president trusts who is up almost as long as he is.
“It’s a mystery to us when he actually sleeps,” she noted. “A total mystery, so don’t ask that. But somebody who actually, you know, has relationships with donors, grass roots, on Capitol Hill, so that we can play prevent defense and then also go on offense when it comes to supporting his nominees for the Cabinet or for the United States Supreme Court and the rest of the federal judiciary.”
Despite her lack of willingness to take an official role with an incoming Trump Administration, she said that all women, regardless of their status – are welcome in the White House. “Mothers and married women and unmarried women — they’re all welcome in the Trump White House and he’s made that very clear to me.” Working mothers have opportunities in Washington,” she added, but “we still have to make choices and there are limits.”
Conway’s announcement is sure to give the Left fits, who will proclaim Conway to be evil or sexist or woman-hating for making the very personal decision.
But I’m not sure she cares what they think.
