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:

Some people came to the defence of mail-in voting during a global pandemic:

While others just called out what they perceived to be a terrible analogy:

The remark comes about after Trump raged on Twitter about mail-in votes for the upcoming US election.

His rant forced the social media platform to pull the POTUS up on his statements and include two fact boxes underneath them urging anyone who reads it to “get the facts”.

Of course, this led Trump on an even angrier rampage and claiming “Republicans feel that Social Media Platforms totally silence conservatives voices”.

He then threatened to “strongly regulate, or close them down”.

Meanwhile, over 1.72 million people have tested positive for coronavirus in the US and 102,000 people have died.
