Kellyanne Conway revealed that she had been assaulted by a woman who grabbed and shook her, but it happened in October.
From Fox News:
White House senior adviser Kellyanne Conway says she was physically assaulted by a woman at a Washington, D.C.-area restaurant last year while with her middle-school-aged daughter.
A 63-year-old woman named Mary Elizabeth Inabinett has been charged with second-degree assault and disorderly conduct, according to the Associated Press, citing court records.
“I was assaulted in a restaurant,” Conway told CNN in an interview that aired on Friday. “That person has to go to court soon.”
Conway, White House counselor, revealed the alleged October incident took place while she was with her daughter and a group of her friends for a birthday celebration.
“I was standing next to my daughter and many of her friends at dinner … somebody was grabbing me from behind, grabbed my arms and was shaking me,” Conway said. “I thought maybe somebody was hugging me … as I turned around, it just felt weird.”
Conway told CNN’s Dana Bash that it felt “aggressive” before elaborating on the frightening encounter with a stranger.
Very weird. It’s a good thing she wasn’t hurt, but I can see how that would be traumatizing. The woman will go on trial for the assault in March.
