As if she didn't have enough on her hands with the president-elect, Donald Trump adviser Kellyanne Conway has plunged full-force into a topic at least as emotionally charged: the Mommy Wars.
Speaking at a Politico "Women Rule" event Wednesday, Conway cited her four young children as the reason for declining a White House job.
"My children are 12, 12, 8 and 7, which is bad idea, bad idea, bad idea, bad idea for mom going inside," she said. "They have to come first and those are very fraught ages."
When the possibility of an administration role came up in her talks with senior officials, Conway said, they would say, "'I know you have four kids but ...' I said, 'There's nothing that comes after the "but" that makes any sense to me so don't even try.' Like what is the 'but'? But they'll eat Cheerios for the rest of the day? Nobody will brush their teeth again until I get home?"
