White House senior counselor Kellyanne Conway claimed on Tuesday that she does not know who was operating her Twitter account when it retweeted and responded to a white nationalist.
“I don’t know who had access to my account,” Conway told BuzzFeed on Tuesday.
When Twitter user, Lib Hypocrisy, complimented Conway for her “strength and resiliency in face of vile hatred, bigotry, & sexism of the unhinged Left” after her disastrous Today show interview, Conway’s twitter account sent a “Love you!” reply back.
According to Buzzfeed, Conway not only retweeted Lib Hypocrisy’s tweet, but also told the Twitter user, “Love you back” and wished her “Hapless Haters” a happy Valentine’s Day.
Lib Hypocrisy’s Twitter bio includes the hashtags “White Identity” and “Nationalist.”
“The username also includes a frog illustration, presumably to denote Pepe the frog — a symbol of the alt-right movement,” Buzzfeed added.
“I denounce whoever it is,” Conway told Buzzfeed. “It will be immediately deleted. Everybody makes mistakes.”
The tweet was later deleted.
