White House counselor Kellyanne Conway appeared on Fox & Friends on Wednesday morning, where she attacked former Vice President Joe Biden for staying in his “bunker” and criticising Donald Trump.
Later in the day, Conway defended her assertion while speaking to reporters at the White House.
“I find it to be petty and a tinge of partisanship and completely unhelpful to the American population to have a former vice president who was here for eight years in his bunker in Wilmington just lobbing criticisms,” Conway said of her attack on Biden.
She went on to claim that Trump had been handling the virus “non-politically.”
“He’s got a lot of fans out there that can’t get enough of Joe Biden in the bunker in Delaware,” Conway opined.
A reporter then called her out for claiming that Biden shouldn’t be following federal guidelines.
“Are you suggesting Vice President Biden should be disregarding federal guidelines?” a reporter asked.
That’s when Conway lashed out.
“You know I’m not,” Conway replied. “Let’s not be silly! Let’s not be silly about it! I’m not implying anything. In fact, I’m not implying a single thing. I wonder what you’re implying.”
“The critics and naysayers have never seemed so small,” she added. “And if you’re a former vice president and you have some type of visibility, you have a great idea, let’s hear it.”
“He can stay in the bunker all he wants,” Conway concluded. “He can cough into his hand all he wants. He can read from prepared notes all he wants.”
