Kellyanne Conway hammered New York Democratic Rep.-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez on Tuesday for using a “slur” against outgoing White House Chief of Staff General John Kelly.
During an interview on “Fox & Friends,” Conway was asked by host Bill Hemmer about potential candidates who could replace Kelly, who is stepping down at the end of the year.
As Conway was praising Kelly for his hard-work and decades of service to the nation, she transitioned into responding to the “nonsense” about him from “this 29-year-old congresswoman who don’t seem to know much about anything.”
“Really embarrassing, and for her to even use a slur against him yesterday – I won’t repeat her name or the slur – but let me stand up for General John Kelly. He has done a magnificent job for this country for almost 50 years,” Conway snapped.
Conway is referring to Ocasio-Cortez, the 29-year-old socialist who called Kelly a coward on Monday and said he owed Rep. Frederica Wilson, D-FL, an apology.
“John Kelly was straight up exposed for lying about @RepWilson in comments aimed at discrediting her,” Ocasio-Cortez wrote via Twitter on Monday.
“He absolutely owes her an apology, and his refusal to do so isn’t a sign of strength – it’s cowardice,” she added.

Ocasio-Cortez is referring to a feud that occurred between Kelly and Wilson last year.
Wilson “overheard” comments made by President Donald Trump to the widow of Sgt. La David Johnson, a U.S. soldier who was killed during a mission in Niger.
Trump said on the call that Johnson “knew what he was getting into,” and Wilson used that small snippet of the entire call to portray the president as lacking empathy for the death of a U.S. soldier.
Kelly, who said he was in the Oval Office when Trump made the call, defended the president by saying Wilson was an “empty barrel” and was taking the president out of context.
Ocasio-Cortez was arguing that Kelly, a former Four Star General in the Marine Corps, is a coward and that he should be apologizing to Wilson.
Conway is also correct that Ocasio-Cortez spews a lot of “nonsense.”
Over the weekend, the New York socialist misquoted the U.S. Constitution and falsely claimed that the age restriction to run for president only applies to men.
Article II Section I of the U.S. Constitution explicitly states “any person,” not “he,” as she claimed.
No person except a natural born citizen, or a citizen of the United States, at the time of the adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the office of President; neither shall any person be eligible to that office who shall not have attained to the age of thirty five years, and been fourteen Years a resident within the United States.
Last week, the 29-year-old socialist threatened to subpoena Donald Trump Jr., the president’s eldest son, for trolling her with a meme on social media.
Prior to that, two far-left outlets brutally fact-checked Ocasio-Cortez for citing a highly misleading report to claim that Pentagon accounting errors totaled $21 trillion.
