Kellyanne Conway calls WSJ editor's tweet 'sexist'

Kellyanne Conway has called out a Wall Street Journal editor for posting what she has claimed is a sexist message on social media, reports The Blaze.

The controversy was triggered by President-elect Donald Trump's meeting on Monday with Carly Fiorina, a former rival for the Republican nomination.

Bradd Jaffy with 'NBC Nightly News,' tweeted Fiorina's quote about the meeting and then summarized that "Carly Fiorina, after meeting with Trump, says she enjoyed the tchotchkes in his office, and then they talked about China."

Responding to that message, the Wall Street Journal's Bret Stephens wrote on Twitter, "He called me ugly. He won. I kissed up. Carly Fiorina, setting a fine example for young women everywhere."

During the campaign, Trump was described in a Rolling Stone article as seeing Fiorina on TV and exclaiming, "Look at that face! Would anyone vote for that? Can you imagine that, the face of our next president?!"

Nevertheless, Conway fired back at Stephens, saying, "This tweet is sexist & lacks the self-reflection of a NeverTrumper. But is it appropriate for an editorial writer @WSJ? @rupertmurdoch?"

Stephens responded soon after, writing, "Kellyanne Conway calls me sexist and lacking in self-awareness. When you think you've seen it all...."
