Conway: 'I Have No Idea Who the Leader of the Democratic Party Is'
In an MSNBC interview on Monday, Former White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest said that former President Obama does not plan to "re-engage" in politics unless the Trump administration starts to cross some clear "red lines."
Kellyanne Conway believes that not only did Earnest choose a particularly poor term with "red lines," but his remarks go to show the state of disarray that the Democratic Party is in.
"President Obama reminded me yesterday, I have no idea who the leader of the Democratic Party is," Conway, a top advisor to President Trump, said on "Fox & Friends" this morning. "Is it him, on whose watch they lost the White House, the House, the Senate, nearly 1,000 state legislative seats, lots of chambers and governorships?"
She pointed that that the supposed leader of the party, Democratic National Committee Chairman Tom Perez was routinely booed last week during his Democratic Unity tour.
She added that Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) won 22 states in the Democratic primary and is beloved by progressives, but he refuses to identify as a Democrat.
"Is it Hillary Clinton, who's still out there on the stump and won't go quietly into thy night?" Conway said. "I think the Democratic Party is having a real identity crisis."
As for Obama reentering the political fray, Conway said past two-term presidents have typically given their successors "great latitude and some time."
"I hope the same courtesy is extended to this president."
