White House counselor Kellyanne Conway appeared alongside press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders outside the White House correspondents’ dinner Saturday.
“I’m so proud of Sarah Sanders, I have to say,” Conway said. “She knows I love her to begin with and respect her enormously, but she’s representing the president of the United States tonight at the head table.”
“Thank you, Kellyanne,” Sanders said.
Conway was referring to the fact that Sanders was representing the Trump administration at the dinner in place of President Trump.
Trump skipped out on the dinner that presidents usually attend in order to appear at a rally in Michigan Saturday. (RELATED: Sarah Huckabee Sanders And The Establishment Media Were At The Same Event — Her Class Will Stun The Critics)
