In an unexpected moment of spontaneity at a rally in Indiana on Monday ahead of Tuesday’s midterms, President Donald Trump invited on stage the two arguably most recognizable women in his administration, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders and White House counselor Kellyanne Conway — and they had a few words for the massive crowd.
“Thank you, Indiana,” Sanders said on behalf of Conway and herself. “You’ll have to forgive Kellyanne and I. We’re maybe a little speechless; we’re not used to friendly crowds.”
That remark was an obvious shot across the bow of the overtly hostile liberal media who routinely engage in rhetorical combat with Sanders and Conway on a near-daily basis.
“A little speechless”
Sanders went on to call it an “honor” and “privilege” to work in the president’s “historic” administration.
“A lot of people know me in my official capacity,” Sanders reportedly told the president, “and it’s one of the greatest honors of my life to serve in your administration, and one of the most important jobs I’ll ever have.”
But though she deemed her position as press secretary as one of her most important career moments, Sanders nevertheless declared that being a mother was the “greatest job” title she would ever hold.
“That’s why I work for this president: because I care about my kids’ future, and I care about the future of our country,” Sanders said.
She went on: “I want somebody that I know will protect their future, protect this country and make sure that they have the best America possible, and that’s why we’re going to keep making America great again.”
Conway fires up crowd
Conway then had her turn at the podium — and she fully utilized the opportunity to fire up the “packed-to-the-rafters” arena of supporters.
She stressed the incredible importance of retaining a Republican majority in the Senate — a goal that the GOP achieved after Tuesday’s elections.
Republicans lost their majority in the House on Tuesday.
Since their Monday appearances, both women have faced criticism from partisan pundits in the media who claimed that they violated the Hatch Act, which restricts the political activity of executive branch officials. But both women were speaking on behalf of Trump as private supporters of him — not in their official capacity as members of the administration.
Indeed, Sanders and Conway have been put through hell over the past several years by liberals who despise them for having the audacity to work for President Trump — but neither woman has caved to the incessant pressure, and instead, they have continued to work to Make America Great Again.
