White House counselor to the president Kellyanne Conway took a shot at Lisa Page on Monday after the former FBI attorney spoke about President Donald Trump’s harassment of her.

Page explained to The Daily Beast in an interview that she was prompted to come forward after the president of the United States publicly humiliated her.

“Honestly, his demeaning fake orgasm was really the straw that broke the camel’s back,” she told the publication. “I had stayed quiet for years hoping it would fade away, but instead it got worse.”

Later on Fox News, Conway was asked for the “White House official reaction” to the interview.

Conway admitted that she had not discussed the interview with the president.

“I can’t believe she actually thinks it is the president who has kept her quiet,” Conway opined. “It sounds like she’s very rattled every time the president tweets something out. It sounds like she is very rattled in that interview.”

“She also suggested she was being harassed,” Fox News host Bill Hemmer pointed out.

“Well, that’s the way she feels,” Conway snapped. “It wasn’t the president who revealed [her affair with a colleague], it was The Washington Post who revealed that she was having a relationship with a colleague in their text messages.”

“I actually think that she feels really sorry for herself,” she continued. “If she were a career lawyer with the FBI and DOJ, she could have stayed on that job, nobody here removed her. She quit voluntarily.”

Before signing off, Conway took one more shot at Page.

“I’m not a woman who feels sorry for myself,” she quipped. “That’s my message of the day. I hope my three daughters are watching.”
