Kellyanne Conway is shedding white tears because she claims she was assaulted by an elderly woman — in a Mexican restaurant. Cue the drama…
Conway babbled to CNN that she was at Uncle Julio’s in Bethesda, Maryland sometime last year and “Somebody was grabbing me from behind, grabbing my arms, and was shaking me to the point where I felt maybe somebody was hugging me. She was out of control. I don’t even know how to explain her to you. She was just, her whole face was terror and anger. She was right here, and my daughter was right there. She ought to pay for that.” While we don’t condone violence, maybe the elderly woman was thinking about mothers being torn apart from the children at the border of Mexico and didn’t appreciate that irony of her chowing down at a Mexican restaurant.
According to Raw Story, “The alleged assailant, a woman named Mary Elizabeth Inabinett, left the restaurant before Conway called 911 to report the alleged assault. Inabinnett has subsequently been charged with second-degree assault and disorderly conduct, although her attorney says she denies the charges and plans to plead not guilty at her trial next month.”
Her attorney said in a statement, “Ms. Inabinett saw Kellyanne Conway, a public figure, in a public place, and exercised her First Amendment right to express her personal opinions. She did not assault Ms. Conway. The facts at trial will show this to be true, and show Ms. Conway’s account to be false.”
Watch Conway describe the incident below:
Back on June 22, White House press secretary Sarah Sanders wasn’t welcomed with open arms at Red Hen restaurant in Lexington, Virginia. The owner of Red Hen, Stephanie Wilkinson, said to The Washington Post at the time that some of her staff were uncomfortable, including the LGBT staffers, due to Sanders support of a ban on transgender people in the military and a gay couple being refused to have a wedding cake baked for them because of religion.
She said, “I explained that the restaurant has certain standards that I feel it has to uphold, such as honesty and compassion and cooperation.” She also offered the other people the chance to stay, but they refused and what little they ordered, Red Hen gave to them on the house.
If you put on hate and lies, don’t be surprised if you get push back. Being that Conway believes in “alternative facts,” we’ll wait until a court decides if she is telling the truth.
