Dear Friend,

In these times of elections, climate chaos and COVID-19, independent news is more important than ever. You turn to Democracy Now! because you trust that when we're reporting on the pandemic or the uprisings against police brutality—or the climate crisis—our coverage is not brought to you by the fossil fuel, insurance or weapons industries or Big Pharma. We count on YOU to make our work possible. Today, a generous supporter will DOUBLE your new monthly donation to Democracy Now!, meaning your gift will go twice as far. This is a challenging time for us all, but if you're able to make a monthly donation and provide us with support we can rely on all year, please do so today. Stay safe, and thank you so much.

Trump Calls Kellyanne Conway “Baby” at Pre-Inauguration Dinner

HeadlineJan 20, 2017

Also on Thursday night, Trump spoke at a pre-inauguration donor dinner, where he called his campaign manager Kellyanne Conway, whom Trump recently named to the position of counselor to the president, “baby” and “my Kellyanne.”

President-elect Donald Trump: “I see my Kellyanne. Oh, Kellyanne, come here. Come here. Come here, Kellyanne. Get up here. Come here, Kellyanne. She’s been so great. Wow! Wow. So, there is no den she will not go into. When my men are petrified to go on a certain network, I say, 'Kellyanne, would you do it?' 'Absolutely, no problem.' Then she gets on, and she just destroys them. So, anyway, thank you, baby. Thank you.”

Kellyanne Conway: “Thank you.”

President-elect Donald Trump: “Thank you. Be careful.”
