White House counselor Kellyanne Conway went through the litany of 2020 Democratic contenders on “Fox and Friends” Monday morning, revealing the White House’s current line of attack against each of them.
On Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-MN), Conway referenced recent reporting that she treats her staff badly, trying for a weak zing by saying “you can change the ‘a’ to an ‘o’ and get ‘o my’ instead of ‘Amy’ because I don’t think that was a very impressive rollout.”
On Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), Conway predictably reached for the Native American heritage scandal, saying that the senator had spent “decades appropriating somebody else’s ethnicity and heritage.”
She seemed to have less ammo on Sens. Kamala Harris (D-CA) and Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY), saying that the former is for the Green New Deal and that the latter only recently tried fried chicken for the first time.
“I’ve yet to see any presidential timber, I just see presidential woodchips,” she said.
