Watch: Kellyanne Conway Goes Down In Flames After Blaming Joe Biden For Opioid Crisis On CNN
Appearing on CNN Friday, White House counselor Kellyanne Conway touted the Trump administration’s work in combating the opioid crisis and blamed former Vice President Joe Biden for not doing enough to solve the drug problem in America. She also took a swipe at former Democratic rival Hillary Clinton for no particular reason.
During their discussion of the opioid crisis, Cuomo questioned whether Trump was devoting as much attention to it as he should be given that he seemingly has time to get into Twitter feuds with his political opponents.
Conway responded that it was actually Hillary Clinton and Joe Biden who were the ones who started it, not Trump.
“Joe Biden — like that woman who lost the election whose name I don’t say on your network anymore — they seem pretty obsessed,” she said. “Why do they keep mentioning him and his voters?”
Conway then attacked both Clinton and Biden for not doing more to solve the country’s problems, despite the fact that they currently hold no political power.
“They have considerable platforms,” Conway said. “Why aren’t they using them for more good? Where is [Clinton’s] center for women and girls? Why isn’t [Biden] calling me today to help on the drug crisis?”
Cuomo immediately shot down this line of argument, however.
“I don’t care what she’s doing,” he said of Clinton. “She’s not in charge of keeping my family safe. You are. You’re in power!”
