Conway the Survivor

Trump adviser Kellyanne Conway appeared on CNN this weekend and told Jake Tapper that she, too, is a survivor of sexual assault. The comment was almost offhand, and took Tapper by surprise. When he followed up, she pivoted to talking about hearing everyone who comes forward, but prosecuting perpetrators in legal court, not the mob-like court of public opinion. “We do treat people differently who are either the victims or the perpetrators of this based on their politics, now, and based on their gender,” Conway said. “That is a huge mistake.”
