Kellyanne: If you can wait in line for a cupcake, you can also stand in line forever to vote (VIDEO)
Kellyanne Conway, a senior advisor to President Trump, says that people don't need absentee mail-in ballots when voting. She even suggested they'd prefer to wait in line.
Here's what she said on the lawn of the White House on Wednesday:
"People are very proud to show up and go to the polls. They really are. I mean, they wait in line at Georgetown Cupcake for an hour to get a cupcake. So, I think they can probably wait in line to do something as consequential and critical and constitutionally significant as cast their ballot."
Kellyanne is weighing in on the debate of the week on whether states should be allowed to let voters mail-in their ballots. Trump doesn't want people to vote by mail he claims because he fears "fraud" but what he's really afraid of is losing the election. Republicans have a long history of opposing easier voting/registration laws which tend to draw in more Democrats.
Mrs. Conway was also asked to provide a reaction to Joe Biden calling Trump an "absolute fool" for mocking the wearing of masks.
She thinks Democrats are the ones doing all the name-calling.
"That's what Joe Biden and the Democrats do. They like to engage in name-calling when they have nothing substantive to say."
The reporter had to interrupt her: "The president does, too."
Kellyanne responded back flippantly: "You asked me why he said that, so let's stick with that for a moment."
"Joe Biden has to engage in name-calling because he can't (point to any accomplishments)."
