Kellyanne Conway can't stop whining that Pelosi won't treat her like she's president


Kellyanne Conway is an aide to the president, not the president — and she apparently hates being reminded of that.

Kellyanne Conway can't stop complaining that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi refused to address her as if she were the president of the United States.

Trump stormed out of a Wednesday meeting with Democratic leaders and demanded that they stop doing their jobs by conducting oversight of his administration. Conway then reportedly tried to get Pelosi to talk to her instead, and Pelosi refused.

Conway immediately started complaining to the press that Pelosi's insistence on addressing Trump instead of his staffer was somehow "anti-woman." And on Thursday, Conway ran to Fox News for a second day of whining about her interaction with the speaker.

"I said, 'respectfully Madam Speaker, would you like to address some of the specifics that the president talked about,' and she said, 'I talk to the president, I don't talk to staff,'" Conway said.

"Because let's face it, she's the sixth most rich member of Congress, she treats everybody like they're her staff, she treats me like I'm either her maid or her driver or her pilot or her makeup artist and I'm not," Conway added.

For the record, Conway's reported net worth of $39 million is more than twice Pelosi's, per financial disclosures.


"I'm not going to talk about her. I responded as the speaker of the House to the president of the United States," Pelosi said at a news conference on Thursday when asked about the exchange.

Conway's complaints about Pelosi are part of disastrous efforts from the White House to manage the fallout from Trump's embarrassing temper tantrum in the Rose Garden.

Conway works for a petulant man who cannot handle the pressures of doing his job. But instead of dealing with the mess Trump has made, Conway prefers to pick petty battles with congressional leaders.
