Kellyanne Conway came from what we’re now calling Trump country in small town New Jersey and fought her way to the top. Washington Examiner reporter Salena Zito nailed an interview with Conway in her office in Trump tower. From Zito’s piece:
Conway’s office is an uncluttered workspace filled with family photos, bookcases, a white board with “#winning” and “Make America Great Again” written in green marker, a faux fireplace, a glass door leading to a small outdoor terrace with several chairs, and, left behind by former campaign manager Paul Manafort, a map of the country.
Conway, the first female campaign manager to win a presidential election, will become “counselor to the president” on Jan. 20, the day Donald J. Trump becomes the 45th president of the United States.
Unsurprisingly, she is beaming.
“You want to hear about destiny? I was born Jan. 20, 1967. I will turn 50 years old on Inauguration Day, the day he is sworn in as president,” she says, deadpanning, “Honestly, I think my family is very relieved that they don’t have to think of a party idea.”
