The Republican pollster and strategist who helped guide Donald J. Trump to victory in November, on Thursday was appointed counselor to the president, becoming the highest-ranking woman at the White House.
The appointment directly contra-dicks Joe Scarborough’s reporting…
Scarborough: Kellyanne is lying about Trump liking her
Scarborough: Trump is furious w/ Kellyanne
Scarborough: Trump REALLY SUPER furious w/ Kellyanne
Scarborough: Kellyanne is definitely out…
Not only did Kellyanne receive a top WH post, she is apparently secure enough w/ her place in the totem pole to not take shit from the Chief of Staff:
During one recent meeting, Trump told former campaign manager Kellyanne Conway and Priebus that Conway, who is aligned with Bannon and is one of the president-elect’s closest aides, would get whatever post she wanted. Priebus jumped in, responding that Conway would take a position in the administration and that he was working with her on a role, according to two people familiar with the exchange.
But Conway, who has been undecided about whether to work for Trump in the West Wing or outside the White House, sharply rejected that assertion…Priebus, Conway said, doesn’t speak for her.
Trump appeared taken aback. “Oh, she’s tough,” he told Priebus.
Even her most ardent detractors must concede, Kellyanne is self-confident AF…
