Kellyanne Conway was offered the chance of WH Press Secretary but ‘Politely Declined’. She has since reassessed that decision and SHE DIDN’T MINCE HER WORDS!
When asked about it months ago, she said that she wouldn’t be interested. After seeing what White House chief spokesman Sean Spicer is going through she decided she would sooner slit her wrists.
“I have politely declined that job, Hugh, and I completely agree.” she said then. “I think it’s an incredibly important position to fill. And I know that there will be a qualified man or woman who takes that position and does an excellent job for President Trump and Vice President Pence.”

She was a lot more direct on the subject during an interview she gave to New York Magazine that was published Saturday.
Conway was first floated as an obvious pick for press secretary. Asked if she would ever want [Sean Spicer‘s] job, she rolled her eyes.
“Slit my wrists, bleed out, put cement shoes on, jump off the bridge, and then I’ll take the job — are you kidding me?”
Conway, whose White House code name is “blueberry,” also spoke about her “alternative facts” statement that drew criticism.
When NBC News’ Chuck Todd claimed that Sean Spicer gave a “provable falsehood” about Donald Trump’s inauguration, she replied that “Sean Spicer, our press secretary, gave alternative facts to that.”
She stuck to her guns on that one and insisted that she meant “additional facts and alternative information.”
She gave as examples, “Two plus two is four. Three plus one is four. Partly cloudy, partly sunny. Glass half full, glass half empty. Those are alternative facts.”
She was even more direct when asked about her critics.
“Anybody who pretends I’m not smart or not credible, it’s like ‘Excuse me, I’ve spoken 1.2 million words on TV,’ OK?” she said.
“You wanna focus on two [slips] here and there, it’s on you, you’re a f***ing miserable person,” she said. “P.S., just whoever you are.”
