Conway’s tenure as Trump’s campaign manager: Two and a half months.
Kellyanne Conway, who at two and a half months of service became the campaign manager with the shortest claim to that role in an ever-rotating revolving door of campaign managers for Donald Trump’s presidential campaign, has been named the president-elect’s White House counselor. Conway, who was lucky enough to be the campaign manager who survived past the November 8th, 2016 finish line, was only appointed to the position on August 17th, and in September was unaware of what a press conference was. However, her two and a half months in that role are apparently sufficient enough that she has been named to a high-level position in the Trump administration. No matter that she saw her candidate lose the national popular vote by an unprecedented margin (nearly 3 million) and win the presidency in the electoral college with less than 80,000 votes in Michigan, Wisconsin, and Pennsylvania, states in which Mr. Trump and other Republican officials fought tooth and nail to have recount efforts blocked, successfully, and where widespread reports of voter irregularities in Trump-won counties in Michigan have called into question the legitimacy of his victory.
Kellyanne was notoriously called “fake news” by Whoopi Goldberg on the view and has referred to reports of Russian interventionism in the 2016 presidential election as merely “pure politics.”
