It's hardly news that Donald Trump's spokesmonster Kellyanne Conway is an awful person, but rarely do we see evidence of the Third Reich's favorite blonde with a microphone threatening to investigate and expose the personal lives of news reporters.
And yet, here she is, doing just that, to a Washington Examiner (!) reporter.
Excerpt from transcript of the phone call between Kellyanne Conway and Caitlin Yilek:
Yilek: Like I said, I'd be happy to pass you on to my editor, if you would like to speak with him.
Conway: I'd be [inaudible] to tell him you have no answer when asked why you were characterizing somebody's feelings, having never talked to that person. If you have some psychology degree [inaudible].
Yilek: I don't know that that is characterizing your feelings to say you are put in the middle if your husband and your boss are attacking each other.
Conway: When are they attacking each other? When did the president even mention his name?
Yilek: All right, like I said, I have got to go. I'd be happy —
Conway: So, listen, if you're going to cover my personal life, if you're going to cover my personal life, then we're welcome to do the same around here. If it has nothing to do with my job, which it doesn't, that's obvious, then we're either going to expect you to cover everybody's personal life or we're going to start covering them over here.
