Conway: Calling Pence’s NFL walkout a stunt is ‘offensive’
White House counselor Kellyanne Conway is pushing back against accusations that Vice President Pence staged a political stunt by walking out of an Indianapolis Colts game over a protest during the national anthem.
“It takes a lot to get that man’s blood boiling and to refer to somebody who’s standing up for the flag and all it represents to hundreds of millions of Americans and all it signals to the world, our veterans, our unity, the founding of our great nation,” she said Monday on “Fox & Friends.”
“To call that a political stunt is truly outrageous, egregious and offensive.”
Conway also said she has worked with Pence for a decade and noted that when Pence often had to comfort the families of fallen soldiers when he was the governor of Indiana.
“This is a man who said he doesn’t think it’s too much to stand,” she said.
