WATCH: Bill Maher Blasts Kellyanne Conway’s List of “Trump Accomplishments”
Few people stuck with the political version of Donald Trump longer than Kellyanne Conway. While she may have started the 2016 primary season aligned with Ted Cruz, she pivoted to Trump before the election and has stuck with him ever since.
But now that the President is nearing the end of his term, Conway is more willing to speak out about his actions. While she criticized Trump during an appearance on Bill Maher’s show last night, she also tried to point to some of his accomplishments. The host wasn’t having it, though, and shot down every argument.
Conway first told Maher that the insurrection was horrible. Maher asked her to, “admit that the reason why they were there is because he never conceded the election.” The adviser said that she has said that the election was over back in early December.
The former Trump crony then argued that the, “real disappointment for people like me is that the last two months, let’s just say from 6 November to 6 January, weren’t spent mostly talking about the accomplishments, reviewing the accomplishments. He built the greatest economy we had.”
Maher replied that the economy was largely built before Trump even took office. Conway retorted, “You can’t deny that many people are better off.” The aghast Maher countered, “Well they’re not better off now. A lot of them are dead.”
