In recent weeks, Kellyanne Conway has not been seen by the public as often as she has in the past, most likely due to violating the Hatch Act over remarks made during last year's Alabama special election. Fast forward to present day and Conway is back after making even more controversial remarks, this time about the opioid crisis.

Conway on opioids

Kellyanne Conway quickly became a household name back in 2016 when she took over for Paul Manafort in the role of campaign manager for Donald Trump. Just months later and Trump would pull off the upset win over Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton, giving the new president enough confidence in Conway that he promoted her to the newly created role of "presidential counsel" in his administration.

In addition, Trump tapped Conway as "opioid epidemic chief" to help lead the charge to fight the country's opioid crisis, despite having no prior history on the subject at hand.

As reported by The Hill on March 22, Kellyanne Conway appeared at a millennial forum hosted in Washington, D.C. known as "Generation Next" where she discussed various issues, including the opioid crisis and how it has impacted Young Americans. Within seconds, Conway raised eyebrows over her questionable remarks. "You folks are reading the labels, they won’t put any sugar in their body, they won’t eat carbs anymore," Conway said in regards to young students on college campuses.

"Then you buy a street drug for $5 or $10, it's laced with fentanyl and that's it," she added.

"My short advice is," Kellyanne Conway went on to say, "eat the ice cream, have the French fry, don’t buy the street drug." Not long after her remarks, critics of the administration made sure to hit back.

Twitter backlash

Following Kellyanne Cownay's comments, social media users didn't hold back their thoughts.

"How are people so clueless that a huge majority of opiate users DON'T want fentanyl in their drugs. They know its poison and they are terrified of it," one tweet read.

"Not if you're lactose intolerant," Julia Manchester sarcastically tweeted.

"The folks over on capitol hill have a new plan to beat the opioid crisis: Ice Cream and French Fry. it's certainly promising, let's see how it goes," another tweet added. "She says! Dont buy the street drug if you don't want to look like me," yet another tweet added.

"No shocker that the staggeringly unqualified poster child for methamphetamine Kellyanne Conway thinks the solution to the opioid crisis is...french fries. And ice cream," a social media user wrote. "Why is she still there after violating the law?" a tweet asked.
