Apparently, Juan Williams had voiced his concerns that incoming Counselor to the President Kellyanne Conway may not be able to do her job and raise her four kids at the same time. How is that not considered by liberals to be “anti-woman?” It’s because Kellyanne Conway is not a liberal. If she were a “liberated” liberal mother of four, then asking that question would most definitely be in keeping with the “war on women.”
But since she’s conservative, then it all of a sudden becomes an “honest question.”
So, Maria Bartiromo with Fox Business Network asked her about Juan Williams’ concern (transcript via Newsbusters):
MARIA BARTIROMO: Yeah, it’s funny, we were talking with Juan Williams earlier and he was questioning, “Well, Kellyanne has four kids, how is she going to do it?” He got creamed on Twitter. (Laughter) Very funny.
Everybody on Twitter was saying, “Why? A woman with four kids can’t do it and a man can? So what that she’s going to be working 24/7?”
KELLYANNE CONWAY: Well I would, I would say to everyone, not — not Juan, because I don’t want him to be creamed — but, I would say that I don’t play golf, and I don’t have a mistress. So I have a lot of time that a lot of these other men don’t.
CONWAY: I see people on the weekend, they spend an awful lot of time, you know, with their golf games. And that’s their right, but the kids will, they’ll be with me. We live in the same house and they come first.
But everybody has to do what’s best for their family and that’s why I didn’t jump immediately, Maria, on, on a position that was offered to me early, early in the transition, because there is a lot to weigh. And my children are 12, 12, 8 and 7, but I — I certainly hope too that we can continue the conversation as a nation about the balance that many men and women face. And I respect the stay-at-home moms, I respect the working moms, and I think that having an open conversation has been very healthy.
