The White House counselor tweeted that Trump’s nomination of Kirstjen Nielsen to head the Department of Homeland Security was a continuation of “his practice of elevating and empowering women to top positions.”
Conway linked to a Fox Business story on the news:
But Conway’s praise of the president wasn’t well received, with hundreds of tweeters calling her out over Trump’s past degrading treatment of women ― such as the disgusting comments he made on the now infamous 2005 “Access Hollywood” bus ride.
Here’s a sampling of the responses:
Oh sweetie can't you see through him yet? He doesn't empower women, he uses them for his purpose. Did he empower Mayor Cruz?— GNG (@gngavon) October 12, 2017
Do you actually have no clue how ridiculous this assertion is?— Moron. (@UhDoubleUpUhUh) October 12, 2017

You can't empower us and say that you can grab our pussies at the same time. JUST STOP.— Jen Saunderson (@JenSaunderson) October 12, 2017
Kellyanne, isn't the Trump cabinet about 90% white male? #SomeEmpowering— Sarah Palin (@SarahPalinUSA_) October 12, 2017
Having the need, to tweet about this. Shows that he has a history of not caring about females— SnowFlake_Gur️ (@A_Smart_Liberal) October 12, 2017
Too bad he doesn't leave women's medical decisions to them or support equal pay or rights.— XenaPeel (@XenaPeel) October 12, 2017
And then grabbing them? You know, what with his being a star and all.— CommonSense (@4counting) October 12, 2017
Yeah, right. Look at his WHOLE cabinet.— Michael Self (@NoteFromSELF) October 12, 2017
