White House senior counselor Kellyanne Conway had harsh words for Democratic leaders and protesters alike for digging their heels in on every decision President Donald Trump makes.
Speaking on Fox News Thursday morning, Conway slammed the Democrats for promising to protest Trump's Supreme Court nominee before they even knew who his pick would be. "The Democratic party, we're seeing it unravel in front of our eyes, and we're seeing it be revealed in front of our eyes," Conway said. "A bunch of crybabies who say that they're going to oppose a Supreme Court nominee before they even know the person's name and his academic credentials and impeccable judicial record."
Conway added the Democrats have held up Trump's cabinet nominees, specifically the secretary of treasury, and said it was going to affect all working Americans. "They are holding up our nominees to the cabinet, I was told yesterday this is the longest the nation has gone without a secretary of the treasury at least in modern times," she stated. "For those who actually go to work in the morning and need the dollar to flourish, we need a Secretary of Treasury to be running things."
"This obstinance and obstruction is the modern Democratic Party. I think it’s going to cost them because they’re hysterical about everything now. There’s no gradation of hysteria, everything makes them cry and scream," Conway said.
Before Trump announced his Supreme Court nominee, Democratic leaders had already promised a fight. They continued that threat after Trump announced his nominee on Tuesday, Judge Neil Gorsuch. On Wednesday, Democrats in the Senate Finance Committee refused to show up to their committee vote on Trump's health and treasury nominees, Rep. Tom Price (R-Ga.) and Steven Mnuchin. Senate Republicans in the committee had to suspend the committee rules in order to vote on the picks to push them through the committee.
