A highly educated woman slam dunked on President Donald Trump during an impeachment hearing on Wednesday, so he sent Kellyanne Conway to viciously attack her on Fox News Thursday morning.
Stanford University law professor Pamela Karlan lit Trump up during her testimony before the House Judiciary Committee on Wednesday in favor of impeachment.
“If you conclude that he asked for the investigation of Vice President Biden and his son for political reasons — that is to aid his re-election, then, yes, you have bribery here,” she said.
Trump called Ukraine President Zelensky on July 25th and asked for a “favor.” He would only release military aid to Ukraine if officials in that country opened an investigation to find him dirt to use against Biden in the 2020 Election. The evidence and witness testimony has thus far been damning.
“This is an abuse that cuts to the heart of Democracy,” Karlan said. “If you don’t impeach a president who has done what this president has done — or at least you don’t investigate and then impeach if you conclude that the House Select Committee’s findings are correct — then what you’re saying is, it’s fine to go ahead and do this again.”
“Put simply, a candidate for president should resist foreign interference in our elections, not demand it,” she concluded. “If we are to keep faith with the Constitution and our Republic, President Trump must be held to account.”
Of course, Kellyanne Conway won’t tolerate a strong woman testifying against her boss, so she attacked her during a Fox News interview the next morning, her strategy being to cast Karlan as an elitist snob.
“If you went to work today to manicure nails, to manicure lawn, if you went to work with a jackhammer, or a welding machine, or mechanics’ tools, or a carpentry belt, that woman yesterday looks her nose down on you, she thinks you are less than her!” Conway said. “I’ve had it! You know why that man ran for president in the first place, for the forgotten man and the forgotten woman, you know why I’m still in the White House? For you! Who the hell are you, lady? You look down on half the country. She hobnobs with the elite!”

Let’s not forget that Trump signed a tax law in December 2017 that gave the wealthy and corporations trillions of dollars they don’t need while doing nothing for the rest of us. Trump’s trade wars are also costing American jobs and causing farmers to declare bankruptcy. That’s not fighting for the “forgotten man and woman,” that’s causing them pain and suffering.
Meanwhile, Karlan worked hard to attain her law degrees and served in the Department of Justice fighting to protect voting rights. Public service has been a major part of her life. Former federal prosecutor Joyce Vance stood up for Karlan on Twitter.
Pam Karlan has never looked down her nose at anyone. Like the time she waited in line overnight in cold & rain to hear SCOTUS argue Obergefell & gave away her tent & warm gear to homeless people hired to hold a place in line for other lawyers. https://t.co/O64u2KWXIg https://t.co/2OAj8o5LnN

The only snob here is Kellyanne Conway, whose own husband recently called her out for continuing to support Trump. She should be thanking Karlan for standing up in defense of our country, not tearing her down.
