Kellyanne Conway just tried to argue that if people have no problem lining up to buy cupcakes, they should absolutely be able to line up to vote.
But people aren’t buying it – both the argument or cupcakes – because the cupcake store she mentioned by name is only offering delivery options in the Washington branch, according to its website.
The 53-year-old counsellor to Donald Trump said:
People are very proud to show up and go to the polls. They really are.
I mean, they wait in line at Georgetown Cupcake for an hour – to get a cupcake. So I think they can probably wait in line to do something as consequential, critical and constitutionally significant as cast their ballot.
Conway then claimed mail-in voting is vulnerable to fraud and added:
Next it’s online voting. And then pretty soon we’re just going to have DoorDash and UberEats deliver everything we need, including our ballots.
The bizarre remarks forced many to point out the privilege:
@thehill I can’t think of anything more white privileged than waiting in line for an hour for a $10 cupcake.
