Kellyanne Conway says she’s not interested in being the White House communications director

White House counselor Kellyanne Conway on Thursday confirmed speculation that the reason she’s not the White House communications director is because she’s simply not interested.

“I’ve been offered that job many times and no, I work on policy here at the White House,” she said on ‘Fox & Friends.’

Conway also had kind words about Hope Hicks, who announced on Wednesday that she would be resigning from the communications director position in the next few weeks. 

“[Hicks] was the fourth person to hold the position of communications director over 13 months,” notes the New York Daily News.

Jonathan Ernst: "We're often asked how much access we have to the Trump administration, and the answer is we have an awful lot. President Trump himself is very comfortable in the spotlight, and his aides are similarly unfazed by cameras. In this instance, senior advisor Kellyanne Conway was so comfortable in our presence she seemed not to consider the optics of kneeling on a Oval Office sofa to take pictures with her phone."
