Kellyanne Conway Complains About All the ‘Old White Men’ Running for President — It Doesn’t Go Very Well
White House counselor Kellyanne Conway on Monday called out the “Old White Male Politicians” leading the 2020 Democratic presidential field after a poll showed Sen. Bernie Sanders and former Vice President Joe Biden topping the list.
“Old White Male Career Politicians are in 1st and 2nd Place in the Democratic Presidential Primary, taking more than half (53%) of the vote,” Conway tweeted in response to an Emerson College poll.
And people on Twitter were quick to remind Conway of who she works for.

The poll showed Sanders, 77, leading the Democratic presidential field with the support of 29 percent of Democratic primary voters. Biden, 76, came in second place in the poll, attracting support from 24 percent of voters. Donald Trump is 72 years old.
The pool of Democratic candidates is notably diverse in age, race and gender, with six women running to take on Trump in 2020. Buttigieg, 37, is both the youngest candidate running and the only openly gay candidate. Biden, who has yet to announce his candidacy, has repeatedly topped polls among Democratic voters, even after controversy surrounding women who have accused him of inappropriate touching.
Twitter quickly called Kellyanne out:
Don’t look but your boss is also an old white guy. Where’s the diversity in the @gop?

Translation: two of the most qualified people are in the lead. Either will be better than the fetal-alcohol baby we have now.

Just curious @KellyannePolls, what were Trump’s numbers at this point in a crowded R field? You remember that time, when you hated Trump because you were on Ted Cruz’s campaign?

I always forget that Republicans are lead by a young black female… 🙄 https://t.co/OzgHs54R4C
