This afternoon, following a particularly rough interview with Matt Lauer (of all people), Kellyanne Conway retweeted one of the seemingly few vocal Twitter users with something good to say about her. “Your strength and resiliency in face of vile hatred, bigotry, & sexism of the unhinged Left is a daily inspiration! Love you,” read a tweet from user @TrumpTrainNoBrk. Conway quote-tweeted them, adding “Love you back. Happy <3 <3 day to the Hapless Haters.” Which would have probably been fine had @TrumpTrainNoBrk not been a white-nationalist account with hashtags like #WhiteIdentity and #Nationalist in the bio. Mental note: Read Twitter bios before publicly professing your love to a white nationalist with a frog emoji in their username.

The tweet, first reported by BuzzFeed, has since been deleted. BuzzFeed reports Conway claims to be “unsure” about exactly who can access her account. “I’ve never heard of Lib Hypocrisy [@TrumpTrainNoBrk] obviously,” she told BuzzFeed. “I denounce whoever it is. I’m going to find out who’s tweeting it. It will be immediately deleted. Everybody makes mistakes.” Of course, the real question here is who has access to her Twitter account and uses phrases like “hapless haters.” That ought to narrow down the suspect pool significantly.
