White House counselor Kellyanne Conway is taking aim at Hillary Clinton for her divisive comments about Republicans.
Conway took to the airwaves Wednesday to say whenever Clinton opens her mouth, she manages to offend half of the country.
The White House counselor said not all Americans have the privileges Clinton experienced at her Ivy League school. She said it’s one thing to call Trump supporters deplorable, but it is another thing to speak out against civility.
Conway’s comments come in response to those made by Clinton just one-day prior.
“You cannot be civil with a political party that wants to destroy what you stand for, what you care about,” said Clinton. “That’s why I believe if we are fortunate enough to win back the House and/or the Senate that’s when civility can start again, but until then the only thing the Republicans seem to recognize and respect is strength.”
Conway went on to call the comments made by Clinton “dangerous.” The White House official also criticized Clinton for her upcoming six-month speaking tour with her husband.
