On October 12th, Donald Trump announced his nomination of Kirstjen Nielsen as secretary of the Department of Homeland Security.
White House counselor Kellyanne Conway decided to use that opportunity to tweet about her boss's supposed habit of "elevating and empowering women."
The internet did not take kindly to Conway's sentiment. Did not take kindly at all.
"@POTUS continues his practice of elevating and empowering women to top positions," Conway tweeted in response to Nielsen's nomination.

Conway was swiftly owned by pretty much everyone for her absurd proclamation that Trump loves empowering women.
@KellyannePolls @POTUS You can't empower us and say that you can grab our pussies at the same time. JUST STOP.— Jen Saunderson (@Jen Saunderson)1507840876.0
