Epic argument erupts between Hillary and Trump camps during post-election forum

The Harvard Kennedy School Institute of Politics' post-election forum is supposed to be a civil discussion between both parties for posterity, but this year, the bruised feelings from the campaign erupted into a less-than-civil argument.

The debate was captured on audio and demonstrates that the bitter feelings from the campaign have not subsided.

In a very emotional exchange, Hillary Clinton's campaign communications director, Jennifer Palmieri, angrily accused Kellyanne Conway, President-elect Donald Trump's campaign manager-turned-senior adviser, of coddling the "alt-right" in order to win the election. Conway fired back that they just have to accept that Trump won, mockingly saying, "Hashtag, he's your president!"

Ironically, it was Conway who is said to have forced Trump to control himself and appear more measured and "presidential" in the run up to the election. Although Trump appointed Steve Bannon — who once said that the news site he ran, Breitbart.com, was a forum for the alt-right — as a top aide, Conway has bristled at any insinuation the campaign is associated with the racialist movement.
