In a major turn of events, we find out that Kellyanne Conway turns out to have realized Trump maybe wasn’t the “best candidate” ethically speaking. She even went as far as to say she needed a shower after having to defend him on air. The hosts of Morning Joe didn’t exactly keep it to themselves either; taking the information public quickly after hearing her insults.

The hosts of MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” said on Monday that the White House counselor Kellyanne Conway complained extensively about President Trump in private conversations with them before he was elected.
Mika Brzezinski said during Monday’s broadcast that she heard Ms. Conway denounce the candidate in private after promoting him on television.
“She would get off the air, the camera would be turned off, the microphone would be taken off, and she would say ‘Blech, I need to take a shower,’ because she disliked her candidate so much,” Ms. Brzezinski said of Ms. Conway.
Joe Scarborough, Ms. Brzezinski’s co-host and fiancé, echoed the statements, saying that Ms. Conway said after being interviewed that she had only taken the job for money and that she would soon be done defending Mr. Trump.
“ ‘But first I have to take a shower, because it feels so dirty to be saying what I’m saying,’ ” Ms. Brzezinski added, mocking what the hosts said was Ms. Conway’s attitude at the time. “I guess she’s just used to it now.”
A White House spokeswoman did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
Ms. Conway began the 2016 election working for a super PAC that supported Senator Ted Cruz’s presidential campaign, but she joined the Trump campaign after Mr. Cruz dropped out of the race. She became Mr. Trump’s campaign manager in August, appearing frequently on television in support of him.
