Kellyanne Conway calls out '49 Senators' for not going to Georgia to help Herschel Walker win the Georgia Senate runoff.
Republican political consultant and former Senior Counselor to the Trump administration Kellyanne Conway griped over her party's lack of support for failed Georgia Senate runoff candidate Herschel Walker.
Walker–who was hand-picked by former Republican President Donald Trump–lost to Democratic incumbent Senator Raphael Warnock by nearly 3 percentage points in the Senate runoff.
The two candidates faced off after they both failed to garner 50% of the vote in the November general election.
Now that the balance of power in the Senate went to the Democrats with a 51-49 seat majority, Conway lambasted the 49 Republican Senators for failing to stand behind Walker.
Conway, who was once embroiled in controversy after mentioning "alternative facts" to refer to imagined attendance numbers at Trump's inauguration and for talking about a "Bowling Green massacre" that never happened, appeared on Fox News' Hannity and bemoaned:
“To the 49 Republican Senators, where were most of you?”
“Why weren’t you in Georgia?”
You can watch the flustered political strategist going on a rant in the clip, below.
\u201cKellyanne: To the 49 Republican senators. Where were most of you? Why weren't you in Georgia? A few of them were but they all should\u2019ve been.\u201d— Acyn (@Acyn) 1670466841
"They all should have been because they should’ve been there in some form, town hall, in person, saying the following."
"'I served in the United States Senate with Raphael Warnock. He’s a terrible Senator. He doesn’t represent Georgia'."
"'He’s not fit to serve. He voted for the Inflation Reduction Act that doesn’t do that'."
"'He said nothing when they pulled out of Afghanistan. He said nothing that Joe Biden has been to Delaware 174 days down to the border zero days'."
\u201c@Acyn Can\u2019t help but notice she isn\u2019t saying WHY Walker should have been elected.\u201d— Acyn (@Acyn) 1670466841
Walker's campaign for the midterms was marred by scandals revolving around his violent behavior, his hypocritical stance on reproductive rights and nonsensical statements during campaign events.
Some of the former NFL running back's controversies included an allegation he urged a woman whom he impregnated to pay for an abortion even though he spoke out against reproductive rights and supported a proposal for a nationwide ban on all abortions–including for cases of incest or rape.
Twitter responded to Conway's frustrations over Republicans leaving Walker to fend for himself in the election.
\u201c@Acyn Where were the 49 Senators? Well, other than Graham and Cruz who bobbled their heads while babysitting Walker during an interview, they were EMBARRASSED by the candidate and wisely kept their distance.\u201d— Acyn (@Acyn) 1670466841
\u201c@Acyn Kellyanne thinks every Republican Senator is as ok with shame and embarrassment as she is.\u201d— Acyn (@Acyn) 1670466841
\u201c@Acyn Because unlike her, some of them have a sense of embarrassment.\u201d— Acyn (@Acyn) 1670466841
\u201c@Acyn Because they did not want to embarrass themselves standing next to a werewolf or listen to the bull watching the cows or breathing the China air or hearing about the erection.\u201d— Acyn (@Acyn) 1670466841
\u201c@Acyn Always blaming someone or some thing else for maga failures.\u201d— Acyn (@Acyn) 1670466841
\u201c@Acyn Kellyanne blames... 49 Senators\n\nHmm, who was the 1 person who actually handpicked Herschel Walker as a miracle candidate. Then steamrolled everyone else including the state party who didn't want him...\u201d— Acyn (@Acyn) 1670466841
\u201c@Acyn They can\u2019t help but point fingers at each other. This blame game is fun to watch.\u201d— Acyn (@Acyn) 1670466841
\u201c@Acyn Kellyanne, you served with Raphael Warnock in the US Senate? I must have missed when you were elected. All I saw was you serving up lies under TFG. Sit all the way down, Smellyanne.\u201d— Acyn (@Acyn) 1670466841
\u201c@Acyn Why does anyone care what @KellyannePolls has to say about anything? Her 15 minutes are up.\u201d— Acyn (@Acyn) 1670466841
Conway concluded her tirade by asking once again:
“Where were the other Senators to say, ‘I want Herschel Walker, not Raphael Warnock, in the Senate with me’?”
