About

Kellyanne Conway is the Special Counselor to the United States President Donald Trump and Chief White House Strategist, serving with Steve Bannon. Since coming to the Trump camp during the 2016 presidential election, Conway has become one of the chief speakers on behalf of the president and is known for her forceful pivots mid-conversation.

History

Since graduating college, Kellyanne Conway worked as a pollster, first at Luntz Research Companies and then at her own polling outfit, The Polling Company, which she founded in 1995.

Throughout the 90s, Conways, along with several other conservative women, including Ann Coulter became known on the talkshow circuit for changing how commentators and pundits looked, sounded and dressed.[2] A frequent guest on Politically Incorrect with Bill Maher, Conway and her female colleagues were occasionally referred to as "pundettes."[1]

Political Career

Kellyanne Conway came into public light during the 2016 presidential election, when she publicly endorsed Ted Cruz and chaired a political action committee (PAC) to support his campaign. During that time, she made numerous negative comments about then-presidential nominee Donald Trump, speaking out against him on such topics as Trump University and his conservatism. She officially left the Cruz campaign when Cruz suspended the campaign in mid-2016.



Weeks after the suspension of the Cruz campaign, Conway joined the Trump campaign as a senior advisor. On August 19th, 2016, she was promoted to campaign manager, making her the first woman in U.S. history to successfully run a presidential campaign, having served for 10 weeks.

Following Trump's victory, Conway was appointed Senior Counsel to the President and White House Chief Strategist, which she serves with Steve Bannon.

Alternative Facts

Two days after the inauguration of President Trump, January 22nd, 2017, Conway appeared on Meet the Press with Chuck Todd to discuss some of the factually incorrect statements made by White House press secretary Sean Spicer, which she referred to as alternative facts.



That day, the phrase "alternative facts" and the hashtag "#alternativefacts" started trending on Twitter (examples below). The expression quickly became a catchphrase for the administration, specifically when misstating easily provable facts.
