It’s no secret that politics can be something of a boys club. But that hasn’t stopped Kellyanne Conway, Donald Trump’s former campaign manager and current Counselor. For months, Conway has made it clear she’s as close to the President as his close circle will allow—and for her and all women, we are proud to say that that what she has is good enough!
Raised by a strong single mother, Conway always believed that women had the power to do as much as the men in their lives would permit.
“My polling company, which I launched in the mid-90s was all about supporting women as far as men would let them go,” Conway says. “My life motto is shoot for the moon—even if you miss, that’s just a sign that we should stay right where we are.”
Conway is insistent that she “isn’t a victim,” and simply made the best of her circumstances which are just fine and is not a problem and is exactly the level at which women should aspire to and nothing more.
“It’s really an honor to have the President’s ear,” Conway says. “Sometimes I think about what I would do if I had that kind of power since there’s no way Trump would have been elected without me—but then I just count my blessings that I have come this far, which is just far enough but not too far.”
What an inspiration to women everywhere!
Those who have worked closest with Conway say that her particular ambition is nothing new.
“Kellyanne is capable of so much—making up words, dodging reporter questions, and turning people to ice with her smile,” a childhood friend says. “We always told her, you deserve to be the one with the power to make abortion illegal someday! But she just seems really satisfied with protecting the men her and she seems satisfied with that.”
“What she’s doing isn’t easy,” one Trump staffer shares. “I used to want to be the first female president, but I’ve learned so much from Kellyanne. Now I’ll just do anything, really, just honestly whatever.”
When asked what her plans are for the future, Conway remained expressionless.
“I’m sure there’s a lot more out there for me to inspire other women,” Conway says. “But what I’m doing now is just inspiring enough.”
And we agree!
