Ever since she was brought on board to join #Donald Trump last summer, #Kellyanne Conway has often been in the spotlight, but often for many of the wrong reasons. After three months of Trump being in power, his advisers and associates are feeling the heat, with Conway at the top of the list.
It all started last summer when Paul Manafort had been exposed for having financial ties back to Russia.
Due to speculation already existing in regards to Donald Trump being in cahoots with the Kremlin, Manafort was forced to resign in his roll as campaign manager. This was all taking place after the former host of "The Apprentice" had won the Republican presidential nomination, and he decided to make a major move heading into a general election fight with Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton. Former Breitbart News CEO Steve Bannon was brought on board to serve as campaign CEO, while veteran Republican pollster Kellyanne Conway was tapped to fill the role as the new campaign manager. While Conway was the leading voice for the campaign, it didn't come without it's downfalls, which has continued as she's transferred to the role of presidential counsel. During an interview with Politico on April 19, Conway decided to lash out at her critics.

Speaking to Politico in a phone interview this week, Kellyanne Conway appeared pleased with her performance so far in the #White House, but showed apparent frustration with those who criticized her, especially over the internet. "This is nothing I ever sought or expected," Conway said. "It's not as if I said to my children, 'Mommy is running for governor, or starring in a new film, so attention will intensify and the unhappy people with poison keyboards will get nastier,'" she went on to say. Conway's comments come just days after she begged for Democratic Party leaders to speak out and stop the growing protests against Donald Trump.
Since the start of the new administration last January, Kellyanne Conway has made multiple blunders that have led to the White House reducing her appearances on television and restricting which news outlets she can speak out. While attempting to excuse the rampant falsehoods coming out of the White House, Conway coined the now infamous term "alternative facts." Not long after, the presidential counsel was doing her best to defend Donald Trump's controversial "Muslim ban" executive order by citing the non-existent "Bowling Green Massacre." After reports of an alleged clash with White House Press Secretary Sean Spicier, Conway has been relegated to mostly appearances on Fox News.
