Kellyanne Conway slammed the hosts of MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” after they claimed she was only supporting President Trump for the money.

“My beliefs, commitments and loyalties are plain to see,” Conway tweeted Tuesday.

On MSNBC Monday, Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski made some wild claims that when Conway came on their show she would insist off-camera that she was only “shilling for Trump” for a “summer in Europe.” (VIDEO: Morning Joe: Kellyanne Conway ‘In It For The Money’)

“This is a woman who came on our show, by the way, during the campaign and would shill for Trump in extensive fashion,” Brzezinski said, “and then she would get off the air, the camera would be turned off, the microphone would be turned off, and she would say, ‘bleh I need to take a shower.'”

Conway posted a statement on Twitter with the caption, “Taking a moment from more important matters to respond.”

“…When sentiments are attributed to me that are not true, it is necessary to respond,” she asserted.

“The notion that I am serving for ‘the money’ or a ‘paycheck’ is absurd. As campaign manager, I made a fraction of what other consultants have made on unsuccessful campaigns,” the statement read. “It is a privilege to assist President Trump in the White House…I know him, I respect him, I believe in him.”
