When you think of Donald Trump you immediately think of all he’s done to make women feel empowered, do you not?

No? Oh, sorry — guess that’s just Kellyanne Conway.

Others might be thinking about the Donald Trump who bragged about groping women, cut Obama’s equal pay act, and rolled back access to birth control, but the man Conway knows apparently “elevates and empowers women,” as she recently explained on Twitter.

On Thursday the White House counselor shared a Fox Business tweet announcing Trump had nominated cybersecurity expert Kirstjen Nielson as Department of Homeland Security Secretary.

In her own tweet Conway congratulated Nielson and added that Trump “continues his practice of elevating and empowering women to top positions.”

Hmmmmmmm…

Considering the strained relationship Trump has cultivated with many women over the years — never forget when millions of women around the world marched in protest one day after his inauguration — many disagreed with Conway’s statement and were eager to voice their concerns.

Though Conway’s statement seemed to spark quite the reaction, it’s not the first time one of Trump’s administration members claimed he empowers women. Back in March, Trump’s former press secretary Sean Spicer claimed the president has made women’s empowerment a priority.

“Women’s History Month is coming to an end, but the Trump administration is committed to empowering women in the workplace,” Spicer said. “The President made women’s empowerment a priority throughout the campaign, speaking out on affordable childcare and paid family leave, investing in women’s health, and the barriers faced by female entrepreneurs and business owners.”

Like Conway, Spicer was also dragged for his comments — so it seems people think this claim is just another one of the administration’s “alternative facts.”
