President Donald Trump’s counselor Kellyanne Conway on Sunday revealed that she was a victim of sexual assault.

The stunning admission came on CNN’s “State of the Union” during Conway’s emotional defense of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh and the White House response to an allegation of sexual assault against him by Christine Blasey Ford.

"What you saw the other day, even though a lot of it was a national disgrace, what you saw the other day was a Senate Judicial [Committee] confirmation hearing,” she said. “It's not a court of law proceeding or a meeting of the Me Too Movement. I feel very empathetic, frankly, for victims of sexual assault, sexual harassment and rape.

"I'm a victim of sexual assault," she revealed.

“I don't expect Judge Kavanaugh or Jake Tapper or [GOP Arizona Sen.] Jeff Flake or anybody to be held responsible for that,” she continued. “You have to be responsible for your own conduct. “

Conway declared the allegations of sexual misconduct that have surfaced against Kavanaugh are “not Bill Cosby… not even [former President] Bill Clinton.”

“This is partisan politics,” she said.I want those women who were sexually assaulted and confronting Jeff Flake, God bless them, but go blame the perpetrator. That's who is responsible for the sexual assaults."

CNN host Tapper apologized to Conway, telling her “I’m deeply, personally very sorry about whatever pain you've gone through.”

But the fiery Conway told him: "I've just had it.”

"Don't conflate …  it with what happened to me,” she said. “Don't always bring Trump into everything that happens in this universe.”
