Presidential counselor Kellyanne Conway Wednesday spoke out about the difference in reactions to peaceful protesting versus violence and vandalism between President Donald Trump and others in government, taking aim at House Speaker Nancy Pelosi for removing statues and portraits of former speakers who had been slaveholders from the halls of Congress. 

"She has walked by those statues and paintings for years and has never yet cast a positive vote in favor of school choice which disproportionately helps, thank god, kids of color in communities where they are trapped in failing schools," Conway commented on Fox News' "Fox and Friends."

Her comments came after she was asked about Twitter's decision to put a warning label on a Trump tweet threatening those who would try to establish an autonomous zone in Washington, D.C., with force. 

Meanwhile, vandalism and violence are not helping, said Conway, pointing out that the families of George Floyd and Rayshard Brooks have called out for peaceful protesting. 

Conway also spoke out about a tweet from Food Network host John Henson after he questioned the parentage of the president's youngest son, Barron, on Father's Day, telling the 14-year-old that he hopes he "gets to spend today with whoever his dad is."

"I didn't even know who he was and now people do but sure, but the first lady has been very protective of her son, (both) of his parents are," said Conway, noting that Melania Trump's' spokeswoman Stephanie Grisham was right for slamming the tweet. 

"Look Chelsea Clinton was 12 when her father was elected, the Obama daughters were very young, even younger than that, I believe but we should all treat them, you've got to treat them like eggs," said Conway. "They are off-limits. You don't touch them, you don't talk about them."
