White House counselor Kellyanne Conway ripped into former secretary of state and twice-failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton for attacking President Trump and making herself out to be a victim on Sept. 11.
Despite Monday being the 16th anniversary of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, and despite recent Hurricanes Harvey and Irma, “Hillary is talking about Hillary,” Conway said.
Clinton gave an interview with USA Today on Monday in which she attacked Trump and members of his campaign.
Despite lacking any proof, Clinton asserted that the Trump campaign must have coordinated with the Russians.
“There certainly was communication and there certainly was an understanding of some sort,” she told USA TODAY. “Because there’s no doubt in my mind that (Russian President Vladimir) Putin wanted me to lose and wanted Trump to win. And there’s no doubt in my mind that there are a tangle of financial relationships between Trump and his operation with Russian money. And there’s no doubt in my mind that the Trump campaign and other associates have worked really hard to hide their connections with Russians.”
Clinton also said that she is “convinced” that there was collusion.
“I happen to believe in the rule of law and believe in evidence, so I’m not going to go off and make all kinds of outrageous claims,” she said. “But if you look at what we’ve learned since (the election), it’s pretty troubling.”
Conway fired back at Clinton over Twitter.
“Today: the 16th anniversary of 9-11; the nation is helping Harvey [and] Irma hurricane survivors [and] Hillary is talking about Hillary,” the White House counselor wrote.
