TALK ABOUT TAKING THE FIGHT TO WASHINGTON …
The first woman to run a victorious presidential campaign is still fighting for her candidate … literally, it seems.
According to a story published in The New York Daily News early Tuesday, U.S. president Donald Trump‘s 2016 campaign manager Kellyanne Conway “punched a tuxedo-clad man at an exclusive inauguration ball just hours after the new commander-in-chief was sworn in.”
The alleged incident occurred last Friday at the invite-only Liberty Ball, a high-dollar reception held for Trump’s top donors, foreign diplomats, appointees and member of Congress. That’s according to Fox Business correspondent Charlie Gasparino, who wrote about what he says he saw on his Facebook page.
“Inside the ball we see a fight between two guys in tuxes and then suddenly out of nowhere came Trump adviser Kellyanne Conway who began throwing some mean punches at one of the guys,” Gasparino wrote. “Whole thing lasted a few mins no one was hurt except maybe the dude she smacked.”
“Now I know why (T)rump hired her,” Gasparino added.
A witness corroborated Gasparino’s account, telling Daily News’ reporter Chris Sommerfeldt that Conway struck the tuxedoed man “in the face with closed fists at least three times.”
Conway, 50, is a New Jersey native. The veteran GOP pollster originally supported U.S. Senator Ted Cruz‘s presidential bid – but was hired by Trump in July after Cruz dropped out of the race. A month-and-a-half later she given day-to-day management of his campaign.
No word yet on who Conway allegedly punched, whether any charges will be filed in connection with the incident or what precipitated the fisticuffs.
Not surprisingly, our intrepid D.C. Operative had some thoughts on the report.
“I have my doubts, but if it is true, damn,” he said. “Who wants to negotiate some trade deals with the country run by Trump, Mad Dog Mattis, Rex Tillerson and a 110-pound girl campaign manager who beats the sh*t out people at the inaugural ball?”
