Kellyanne Conway said she prays for Hillary Clinton in hopes that Donald Trump’s former rival will be able to use her platform “to do good.”
“I definitely pray for Hillary Clinton,” Conway told ABC News’ “Journeys of Faith with Paula Faris” podcast. “I pray for anyone who lacks that level of self-awareness. And I pray that she’ll see that she still has a very large platform to do good.”
Conway said she has been able to forgive most of her critics through prayer.
“I need to be a bigger person. I forgive my critics and I pray for them because something must be deeply bothering them,” she said.
Conway’s comments, posted Wednesday, come a day after the New York Times reported Trump told the White House counsel earlier this year that he wanted to direct the Justice Department to prosecute his political enemies, including Clinton, but was told that he had no authority to do so.
Trump threatened to prosecute Clinton during the 2016 presidential campaign if he were elected, telling her at a debate that she “would be in jail” if he was in charge of the country.
Conway tore into Clinton last month after the former secretary of state said civility in politics could only be restored if Democrats won back the House or the Senate in the November elections.
“I think her discourse sounds a little bit dangerous. I don’t like the implications there,” Conway responded.
Of course Conway hasn’t always been so charitable when it comes to Clinton.
A few weeks ago Conway took some heat for calling Hillary Clinton “the queen of abortion.”
Conway appeared on Fox News’s “Fox & Friends” and said Democrats are not pushing the issue of abortion during this election cycle because “they tried that for so long.”
“They tried it with the queen of abortion in 2016 and it backfired for them because so many women said, ‘Excuse me, you have to talk to me on all the issues,’” Conway said.
Yep, this happened: Kellyanne Conway calls Hillary Clinton "The Queen of Abortion," which, as far as I know, outranks "Commander of Cheese." pic.twitter.com/POHL2Es1W1
