Kellyanne Conway compares Philadelphia Eagles to Donald Trump

White House counselor Kellyanne Conway on Monday morning seemingly compared the Philadelphia Eagles’ victory to President Trump’s 2016 election success. 

She also embraced the opportunity to liken the New England Patriots, who will face off against the Eagles in Super Bowl LII, to Hillary Clinton.

“I’ll just say that the underdog here is the Eagles, and you know me I love an underdog…the Patriots are like that woman’s name I don’t mention on TV anymore,” Conway told ‘Fox & Friends.’
