CNN's S.E. Cupp Slams Kellyanne Conway Over Sexism Critique: 'I know Kellyanne is Just Having Fun Gas-lighting America'

CNN host Sarah Elizabeth Cupp shredded Counselor to the President Kellyanne Conway on Saturday after the top White House aide apparently claimed Democratic Senator Cory Booker is sexist for running against female candidates in the 2020 presidential election.

In a tweet earlier today, Conway asked Twitter: "What does Cory Booker have against all the women already running for President?"

"Are they not good enough? Too weak? Not likable? (They're certainly liberal enough) (Pretend he's a Republican when you read this)," the White House aide added, alongside a link to a Washington Examiner article titled "Kellyanne Conway: A Republican Cory Booker would be called 'sexist' for a presidential bid."

Cupp responded to Conway's comments during a segment on S.E. Cupp: Unfiltered, where she roasted the Trump aide and accused her of falsely claiming sexism.

"I know Kellyanne is just having fun gas-lighting America, seeing what insane lies she can get us to believe, but it's dumb crap like this that diminishes real sexism and makes people less likely to believe women when we say sexism is real," the host said. "She does this a lot."

"Remember when she claimed Anderson Cooper's eye-roll at her was sexist? Senator Mazie Hirono was sexist, in her opinion, for criticizing Brett Kavanaugh? Tim Kaine was sexist for interrupting a debate moderator? Chris Cuomo was sexist for interrupting her. MSNBC, sexist. New York Times columnist Brett Stevens, sexist too," Cupp continued. "It's her go-to critique. By the time this is over, I'll be sexist, too. The only thing worse than actual sexism is a woman who uses sexism to shut up her critics."

Booker announced on Friday, in a video posted online, that he will be "running for the president of the United States of America" in 2020. The New Jersey Senator joins an increasingly crowded Democratic primary field, with several others—including Sens Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) and Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.)—having already launched their bids for the White House.

Conway's tweet comes a day after she attacked Booker on Fox News' Fox & Friends when co-host Ainsley Earhardt asked her to comment on the White House's reaction to Booker's announcement.

"I would ask him a couple of questions as he runs from my native New Jersey," Conway said. "One is, What's wrong with the candidates that are already in there? What's your objection to Kamala Harris running, Elizabeth Warren, Kirsten Gillibrand, these others that are already announced? Tulsi Gabbard, maybe."

She added: "If he were a Republican running against them, they would immediately call him a sexist for running against these women in the Democratic field."
