Watch: Kellyanne Conway Says She Will Stay With Donald Trump "Unless …"
The post-debate answer raised eyebrows.
Kellyanne Conway, Donald Trump's campaign manager, raised eyebrows with a post-debate answer about her candidate Sunday night.
While speaking with MSNBC's Chris Matthews after the second presidential debate, Conway — Trump's third campaign manager — was asked if she will stay with the Trump-Pence campaign until the bitter end.
"I'm with the campaign until the bitter end, unless … " she answered with a dramatic pause.
"Unless what?" asked Matthews.
She then vaguely replied, "Who knows? But I'm sitting here as his campaign manager, I'm sitting here with you where he just performed beautifully."
"So you're worried about more shoes dropping?" asked Matthews.
"No, I didn't say that," she said. "I've made a commitment and I believe that he would be a much better president — first of all, he won the debate tonight, clearly. And the reason you know he won the debate is a, you watched it or b, everyone is going to talk about that he was standing behind her and in her space. I am committed to not letting Hillary Clinton appoint the next three or four justices to the Supreme Court."
The news network then brought Conway back to clarify her comments.
"I didn't mean to alert the breaking news again," she told Rachel Maddow. "The 'unless' is very simple: It's unless someone in my household needs me or unless something changes in my own life."
Over the weekend, Saturday Night Live took aim at Conway when Kate McKinnon played her in a digital short, "A Day Off." While the campaign manager attempts to enjoy her time with family, friends and running errands, she is constantly called in to comment on Trump's headline-making tweets.
On Sunday, Conway took to Twitter to say McKinnon "has me down! We got a good laugh in our crazy house."
SNL also parodied Trump's resurfaced vulgar comments and his apology, with Alec Baldwin reprising his impression.
On Friday, a 2005 conversation between Trump and Billy Bush was unearthed by the Washington Post. The lewd comments by Trump were made during a hot mic conversation with the then-Access Hollywood co-host, who has since been suspended from his current post on NBC's Today show.
“I moved on her, and I failed. I'll admit it,” said Trump in the conversation about Access Hollywood's then co-host Nancy O'Dell. "I did try and f— her. She was married."
Trump also said of women in general: "When you're a star, they let you do it. … Grab them by the pussy. You can do anything."
When pressed about the conversation during the debate, Trump again referred to the comments as "locker room" banter.
