The election may be over, but that doesn’t mean Kellyanne Conway will stop her spinmaster routine. During Donald Trump’s campaign, Conway largely dismissed any mention of the many sexual assault allegations against her boss. On this subject, she was drowned out by the ridiculousness of Katrina Pierson tossing out wild airplane-armrest theories, but Conway reportedly couldn’t avoid a sexual assault-related question while talking to a group of students on Wednesday night.

The Hill reveals how Conway took questions from a high-school advanced placement class on a Washington D.C. school trip. One student wondered how Trump’s former campaign manager (and current senior adviser) could “rationalize” working with him after so many women came forward with allegations. In response, Conway delivered a lecture and switched the subject to jobs and the fight against ISIS:

“Women are tired of the same argument and the same thing you are presenting to me right now. I’m glad that people looked at [those attacks] and said, ‘You know what? That’s an argument that will not create a single job in my community, not bring back a single of the 70,000 factories that have been closed, will not deter one member of ISIS from doing their bloodletting here or anywhere else in the world.”

According to the Associated Press’ Steve Peoples on Twitter, Conway also found it “unfortunate” that the student would “use sexual assault to try and make news.”

However, the student received audience applause when she asked the question. This won’t be the last time Conway fields such an inquiry.
