Donald Trump’s senior adviser told Fox Business’ Stuart Varney Friday that she isn’t paying mind to the people criticizing her for weighing a job in Trump’s administration against being a stay-at-home mother because they’re either interns or crazy cat ladies.
Responding to the snipes and jibes from many feminists on social media, Kellyanne responded,
“I thought that women were products of their choices, and that’s what I’m trying to do here quietly and privately find the best balance for my family,” she explained to Varney. “Maybe I will go into the administration because Donald Trump and my husband are very supportive of that choice as well.”
She continued “Trump, himself, has never been anything but gracious and gentlemanly to me and respectful to the fact that I am a mom to young children. He actually thinks it’s pretty cool.”
“The issue is just a very personal one, but I can’t help but feel that people are judging my politics and not my motherhood,” she continued.
“I would just note to you that some people who have attacked me are moms, but a lot of women who have attacked me are either childless interns born in the 1990s or 2000s, or I’ve noticed women who have cats as their Twitter pictures. I’m not going to lose my mind over people attacking me in 140 characters. I’ll assure you that.”
