Kellyanne Conway, a top adviser to President-elect Donald Trump, responded Friday morning to a report about a tense meeting between aides who worked on the campaigns of Trump and Democrat Hillary Clinton.
At the meeting, Trump’s most recent campaign manager reportedly argued with the communications director of Clinton’s campaign about the role of white supremacists in the election.
“If providing a platform for white supremacists makes me a brilliant tactician, I am proud to have lost,” Jennifer Palmieri told Conway. “I would rather lose than win the way you guys did.”
Conway responded by calling Clinton’s campaign staff members “bitter.” She stuck to that message Friday morning when she appeared on the Fox News show “Fox & Friends.”
“I do think some people are stuck in the permanent campaign and not really past the anger, grief, and denial stages and into the acceptance stages,” she said. “But that’s OK, because we won, and yesterday in Indianapolis people got a taste of what it’s gonna be in a Trump/Pence administration, and we are open for business.”
