Reunited, and it feels so good
Reunited ’cause we understood
There’s one perfect fit
And, sugar, this one is it
We both are so excited ’cause we’re reunited, hey, hey…
That could be the theme song for this dynamic duo…Kellyanne Conway and former President Donald Trump.
Trump held a long grudge because Kellyanne, his former campaign manager and adviser, said that he lost the election.
But that grudge seems to be gone now. “I love Kellyanne!” Trump said this week about his former White House counselor. He was speaking at the America First Policy Institute Summit in Washington D.C., and Kellyanne was in the audience.
“Right Kellyanne? I see my Kellyanne. I love Kellyanne,” Trump said to applause as he pointed to Conway.
It was just two months ago that Trump tore into Conway for writing in her book, “Here’s the Deal,” that she told Trump he lost the 2020 presidential election.
“Kellyanne Conway never told me that she thought we lost the election,” Trump wrote on his social media platform, Truth Social. “If she had I wouldn’t have dealt with her any longer — she would have been wrong — could go back to her crazy husband.”
But all that seemed like the Hudson River under a New York bridge. Several times on Tuesday, Trump stopped to reference Conway.
One of the references came after he said that Democratic Rep. Adam Schiff of California had a head “shaped like a watermelon” and he said that Schiff was “quite an unattractive man.”
“Now see they’ll get me in trouble for that, Kellyanne,” Trump said.
Trump is not backing down from saying that he won the 2020 election. He is also more than hinting that he will run again to take back the White House in 2024. This week’s speech in D.C. was no exception. He gave this forecast, a “Republican president will take back the White House in 2024.”
Trump also said that if he stayed silent it would be “a much simpler life” but “that’s not what I’ll do.”
“There’s an expression: The best day of your life is the day before you run for president. Did you ever hear that expression? I laughed at it and I said, ‘That may be true actually, right, Kelly?’” he said making another reference to Kellyanne.
Conway gave “Insider” an interview recently and said that she thought Trump would run for president again in 2024. This week’s speech was his first return to the nation’s capital since he left office. He reverted to his “drain the swamp” theme, but this time he called D.C. a “cesspool of crime.”
Trump also used the platform to criticize Democrats’ investigations into whether his 2016 campaign colluded with Russia to rig the election. He also ranted about transgender athletes and praised how strong the economy was under his leadership.
In the book written by Conway, she praised Trump throughout the book. She even described the pitfalls of his presidency as being caused by the people around him.
“The team failed on November 3, and they failed again afterward,” she wrote. “By not confronting their candidate with the grim reality of his situation, that the proof had not surfaced to support the claims, they denied him the evidence he sought and the respect he was due.”
Kellyanne Conway was the first woman in America to ever successfully run a presidential campaign. She had strong words for Trump’s first campaign manager, Brad Parscale. She also lashed out at Jared Kushner and Steve Bannon in her book.
She held the line throughout the book that Trump had her back. She didn’t give her husband the same credit.
George Conway is a conservative lawyer who turned against Trump. He eventually was forcing her to choose between the president and him.
“I had two men in my life,” Conway wrote. “One was my husband. One was my boss, who happened to be president of the United States. One of those men was defending me. And it wasn’t George Conway. It was Donald Trump.”
Now, they are reunited.
