Kellyanne Conway made an appearance at CPAC with Education Secretary Betsy DeVos where they discussed the subject about “being woke.”
Woke is generally a term used to refer to having empathy and understanding with communities of color. But apparently to Conway, “woke is a joke.”
Conway told the crowd at CPAC that “woke is totally broke.”

This prompted many people on Twitter to fire back at the White House counselor, many noting the recent efforts by the Trump campaign to attract black voters.
Why is the Trump store selling $35 WOKE hats?

I don’t think there is any hope she will ever be woke if she doesn’t see “what” she’s working for is a waste.

Look how proud of herself she is at the end. Also @KellyannePolls, you’re right. It’s a joke. We say “woke” to poke fun at the fact that the masses are awakening and becoming more aware of elitist/leadership failures. That is not a joke. https://t.co/o6tGaiUPBk
