Let this sink in. Kellyanne Conway lied to Megyn Kelly of all people about women voters.

Women. Voters.

"Why, in the new CNN poll, is Hillary at 53 percent among women? She’s running as the first female president. There’s something holding her back."

Megyn Kelly dumped a bucket of perspective at Conway's feet: "She’s beating Donald Trump by some 20 points with women. I mean, why is Donald Trump at 32 percent?"

Conway did that thing where she stares dead-eyed at the interviewer and lies: "Not really, not in all polls."

Then things got creepy. Conway actually said about Hillary, "She’s got a gender gap of her own."

To her credit, Megyn Kelly resisted the impulse to either explode or vomit. "You’re sitting here suggesting, why are her numbers low with women and you work for Donald Trump. His numbers are historically low for a Republican nominee with women. Historically low."

Conway went the "but McCain and Romney!" route.

That was it for Megyn Kelly. "Mitt Romney’s numbers are crushing Donald Trump’s numbers with women. Crushing them!"

Clearly Kellyanne Conway put her self-respect in cold storage through early November. She doesn't realize it won't thaw out when this election is over. I hope she made Donald Trump pay her in advance, because I'm sure he's going to blame her when he loses this election due to his historically low numbers with women.
