KellyAnn Conway’s book tries to humanize the monster:
Donald Trump considered dropping out of the 2016 presidential race after the leak of the now-infamous Access Hollywood tape showed him boasting that women let him “grab ‘em by the pussy,” according to Kellyanne Conway…
Trump had seen reports that the GOP “could force him off the ticket or hold a vote to expel him” amid the fury over his “disgusting” comments, captured on video a decade earlier, Conway wrote.
“Should I get out [of the race]?” Trump asked Conway, according to the book.
And then she gives Hair Füror a pep talk:
“I know you don’t like to lose,” she says she told Trump, “but I also know you don’t like to quit.”
According to the book, Trump appeared to have doubts, asking Conway: “Will I lose? Will we lose? Can we still win?”
She then describes a scene in which she says she reassured him he’d win while also ripping into him over the vulgar remarks he was heard making in the recordings. In addition to the “pussy” brag, Trump also boasted to Access Hollywood host Billy Bush that he doesn’t “even wait” before making a move on a woman—a statement that drew comparisons to sexual assault at the time.
So Sisterhood, amirite? Well not really, KellyAnn wants to have it both ways:
In her new book, however, she claims she called him out and told him his words were “disgusting” and “reprehensible.”
What a saint.
