Kellyanne Conway Says She's a Survivor of Sexual Assault

Kellyanne Conway, advisor to Donald Trump, has come forward as a victim of sexual assault while on CNN defending Supreme Court Justice nominee Brett Kavanaugh against Christine Blasey Ford‘s testimony against him.

“I feel very empathetic, frankly, to victims of sexual assault, sexual harassment, and rape. I’m a victim of sexual assault,” she told CNN’s Jake Tapper on State of the Union. “I don’t expect Judge Kavanaugh or Jake Tapper or Jeff Flake or anybody to be held responsible for that.”

“You have to be responsible for your own conduct,” she continued.

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

Jake then added that Donald Trump has been accused of sexual misconduct and has denied the claims.

“Don’t conflate that with this, and certainly don’t conflate it with what happened to me. Would be a huge mistake,” Kellyanne added. “Let’s not always bring Trump in everything that happens in this universe.”

    She has always been a liar and made things up for Trump. She sure didn’t sound like a rape survivor claiming that it is always the victims fault for their conduct.

    I’m sorry if she has experienced sexual assault. However, is she honestly blaming victims and telling them they have to be responsible for what happened? How messed up! And I believe it was warranted for Jake to ask her about Trump because if you’re a survivor, why would you feel comfortable being the advisor of a man who tried to silence dozens of women who accussed him of sexual misconduct and was ON TAPE saying he could grab women by the p***y?!

    Are you victim shaming her?

    The experience of one should never be confused for the experience and feelings of all. All empirical evidence rely on many many subjects. How dare she try to invalidate everyone else’s story. I wish our political system was as logical as friggin beginners science.

    It’s disgusting. For her to go through something so degrading and soul destroying herself and then turn around and say what she did…there are no words.
