Should TV networks stop booking Kellyanne Conway?
When allegations against Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore suggested he engaged in sexual misconduct with underage girls, many in Washington were quick to distance themselves from the controversial candidate. Counselor to the President Kellyanne Conway told "Fox & Friends" that "no Senate seat" is "worth more than a child."
“Whatever the facts end up being, the premise, of course, the principle, the incontrovertible principle, is that there is no Senate seat worth more than a child,” the White House counselor told “Fox & Friends” on Thursday in response to allegations that Moore sexually molested teen girls when he was in his 30s.
But Conway has now switched course on Moore, arguing he is needed to get the GOP tax bill through the Senate.
“So vote Roy Moore?” asked “Fox & Friends” co-host Brian Kilmeade after Conway bashed Doug Jones, Moore’s Democratic opponent in the race.
“I’m telling you that we want the votes in the Senate to get this tax bill through,” Conway responded.
Conway's comments were immediately met with outrage.

Kellyanne Conway once said that "anyone in public office who has mistreated women should 'step aside,'" but apparently for her sexually molesting a 14-year-old girl can be justified with a single congressional vote. Disgusting.
Jonah Goldberg argues in the National Review that Conway is treated unfairly by the mainstream media, and she is not the first communications official to lie on behalf of a politician.
Here’s a news flash for the news industry: Birds are gonna fly, fish are gonna swim, and politicians are gonna lie. The assumption that Conway is uniquely dishonest strikes me as not only preposterous but irrelevant. If she’s that dishonest, a good interviewer will make that clear to the viewer. Personally, I think Jake Tapper is more than capable of holding anyone’s feet to the fire.
