Kellyanne Conway had to be restrained by Secret Service after allegedly being heckled during an airport stop, The Daily Caller's Mirror reported.

According to Washington photographer Mark Wilkins, Conway arrived at Washington Reagan Airport Monday evening and was greeted by a heckler who repeatedly shouted "Keep trashing America" at the president's counselor.

Wilkins told the outlet that Conway had her fill of the heckler. The report alleged that Conway fired back, "I like the way you talk s**t when I'm walking away."

The photographer claimed that Secret Service had to intervene, and put their arms up to block her.

"Secret Service stopped her," Wilkins told the outlet. “Two of them put their arms up and blocked her. The guy was just an a**.”

Noting that Conway was a "rockstar," Wilkins said that he was impressed by her conduct.

After Conway's break from the public eye — one that left many wondering where she was — Conway returned to television last week to excoriate Hillary Clinton's apparent obsession with winning the popular vote against President Donald Trump.

During an interview with Fox News' Sean Hannity, Conway explained why she thought Clinton lost the 2016 election against Trump.

“It was many things,” Conway told Hannity after he asked whether Clinton had lost the election over arrogance, “but we also had a better candidate, better message, better campaign, better strategy and I think just more self-awareness overall.

"I do want to push back on something Hillary said," Conway continued. "She said that she was winning if the election were on October 27th, that’s actually not true if you look at the Real Clear Politics aggregate, and I did today, in the six states that went for Obama in 2012 but Trump 2016, Florida, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, Michigan, Ohio, Iowa.”

Calling Clinton's lack of self-awareness "stunning," Conway said, “The idea that she ignored Wisconsin meant that Wisconsin ended up ignoring her. And the idea that she yet again mentioned, ‘I won the popular vote.’ You know what the prize is for that? The participation trophy is second place.”
