“People aren’t telling you the news,” she said. “They’re giving you the noise.”

Conway also said a lot of the criticism directed toward her and Trump is “disconnected” from reality. “But so much of the criticism of me is so gender - based ,” Conway added, while encouraging increased civility in policy debates.

In an on-stage presentation styled as a conversation with Vander Plaats, Conway cast the president, herself and their supporters as victims of political critics who make ad hominem attacks while dismissing the administration’s public policy efforts.

“I understand that we’re nation of charged opinions and partisan rancor but I do find most of the vitriol comes from people who don’t know and who are very brave on social media — which means they’re not brave at all,” she said.

Conway was Trump’s campaign manager in the final months of the 2016 election and a frequent presence on cable TV news, where she became known for dogged defenses of Trump’s at times controversial, contradictory or untruthful statements.

Her profile rose further when she was repeatedly parodied on “Saturday Night Live.”

But so much of the criticism of me is so gender - based . I pray for my country and I pray for my critics .” – Propaganda Minister Kellyanne Conway , speaking to the Iowa-based anti-LGBT hate group, The Family Leader.

16.07.2017. Conway said criticism of her because of her appearance "totally undercuts modern feminism.”

Much of the criticism Conway has faced, she charged from the stage on Saturday, has been explicitly about her gender.

“If you want to disagree on policy — if you disagree on tax reform or health care reform or immigration or you’re for abortion and I’m not — then say that,” Conway said. “Disagree that way, that’s what America is. But so much of the criticism of me is so gender-based.”

Conway said the condemnation of her as a political operative or White House aide has been about “how I look or what I wear or how I speak.”

“It’s really remarkable,” she said, “and it totally undercuts modern feminism.”

But so much of the criticism of me is so gender based .” Kellyanne Conway is criticized most often for her personal choice to be a propaganda machine for Donald Trump to such an extent that she isn’t even in the same room with truth or reality.

At one point during their conversation, Vander Plaats asked Conway how national politics could be made more civil — how, in effect, to bridge the divide with the group down the hall.

“Be the bigger person, which I think is exhausting sometimes, but do it,” Conway answered.

While that means not being the first person to engage in rancorous politics, she suggested, it doesn’t mean withdrawing altogether.

“I’m a lot like Donald Trump in that he always calls himself a counterpuncher,” Conway said. “I really never throughout my life have tried to draw first blood, but when attacked you can turn the other cheek or put people in their place.”

More important to achieving civility, Conway said, is focusing on policy rather than politics and ensuring voters have a full and accurate picture of what their leaders are doing.

“As the person in the West Wing who does not say ‘fake news’ and label media people the ‘opposition party’ … my beef, my grievance, is not biased coverage, it’s incomplete coverage,” she said, adding, “Part of becoming civil is making sure people are connected to the relevant information that they need and they deserve.”

At a Saturday conservative summit, Kellyanne Conway used an interview as a platform to talk about the issue of gender. “But so much of the criticism of me is so gender - based ,” Conway added, while encouraging increased civility in policy debates.

Conway held the stage at the Family Leadership Summit for about 40 minutes. From there, she met another slice of Iowa’s GOP electorate at a Republican Party of Iowa fundraiser at the Wakonda Club in Des Moines.

The event was closed to the press and limited to about 50 party donors. Over about 35 minutes, party Chairman Jeff Kaufmann said in an interview afterward, Conway took questions ranging from Iowa’s 2016 election results to the health care bill to ongoing White House efforts to craft a tax-reform package.

“She voluntarily brought up tax policy and tax reform,” Kaufmann said. “She specifically made the comment today, unprovoked, that they have been working on tax policy for months now. You always look for subtle cues about what they’re thinking and what the inner workings are, and so I think that is definitely a very strong statement on where their priorities are.”

Conway also reprised her criticism of the media coverage the Trump administration has received, telling donors, according to Kaufmann, that the media “reports the bad, but they don’t report the good.”
