Donald Trump campaign manager Kellyanne Conway refused to discuss her candidate’s upcoming child rape case during an appearance on CNBC.
CNBC host Andrew Ross Sorkin brought up Trump’s threat to throw Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton in jail over her ongoing email kerfulle if he’s elected, but also noted Trump’s own legal scandals.
Trump is scheduled to begin a court case in December in which a woman has accused him of raping her when she was 13 years old.
“My understanding is that no matter who wins, we’re going to be dealing with the email issue after this if she’s the president,” he explained. “If Donald Trump is the president, he’s got the child rape case that’s going to happen that was just given a date.”
“Oh, come on,” Conway gasped. “That you would analogize the two. Give me a break.”
“I’m just suggesting that no matter who is in the White House,” Sorkin continued before being interrupted.
“Next you are going to ask me where his taxes are,” Conway quipped, rolling her eyes.
I’m unclear as to why Conway thinks a charge of rape is an unimportant matter. The Trump campaign keeps carping about “possible” charges against Hillary Clinton, but Trump is the one who’s actually going to trial.
