Maggie Haberman, White House correspondent for the New York Times, ignored the achievements of working conservative mothers on Tuesday in her praise of Joe Biden’s incoming deputy chief of staff for discussing the balance of a tough career and motherhood.

“Putting aside everything else, it is rare to hear a woman speaking unapologetically and unselfconsciously about life having kids and an intense job,” Haberman said, linking to an interview with Biden’s deputy chief of staff and former campaign manager Jen O’Malley Dillon. “The kind of thing men aren’t often asked to think twice about but women are always expected to.”

Haberman’s post was quickly met with criticism from people noting that there are many working mothers in the Trump administration who have openly shown their admiration and devotion to their own families while taking on demanding careers.

While corporate media like Habberman ignored any “unapologetic” working mom found in the Trump administration over the last four years, Biden’s deputy chief of staff landed an interview in a glossy women’s magazine before she was even assigned a desk in the West Wing. Here are a few conservative women who missed out on the lavish praise for no apparent reason other than their political beliefs:

Kayleigh McEnany

Most prominently on the list of working GOP moms is President Donald Trump’s Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany.

Not only does McEnany regularly post on her personal Instagram about her motherhood journey in conjunction with her career, but she has also given interviews on the subject, including one published last week.

“I think the toughest part for me has been the time spent away from my newborn,” she told the interviewer, explaining that her daughter was four months old when she took her job as press secretary. “I’ll never forget holding my daughter, Blake, a few days before my husband drove me up to D.C.”

“We have made time for both family and work, and Blake has some unforgettable moments in the White House I will tell her about one day — from watching Mommy board Marine One and viewing the NASA-SpaceX launch to dancing to ‘Frozen’ at the White House Christmas Party and flipping the pages of my briefing book while she sat on my desk,” McEnany said.

Amy Coney Barrett

As a former federal judge in the Seventh Circuit and now a Supreme Court Associate Justice, Amy Coney Barrett is also outspoken about balancing her career and her family life which includes raising seven children.

During her confirmation hearings, Barrett spoke about each of her children, telling a small part of their stories and aspirations in her opening statements. She not only defended her children from vile attacks on their adoption heritage but she also talked about the joys of being a mom.

“While I am a judge, I’m better known back home as a room parent, carpool driver, and birthday party planner. … Our children are my greatest joy, even though they deprive me of any reasonable amount of sleep,” she said.

Sarah Huckabee Sanders

Sanders was the first mother to take on the role of press secretary, a fact that the corporate media largely ignored.

“As a working mom, it’s not lost on me what a great honor and privilege it is to stand here at the podium,” she said at a White House press briefing in 2017.

Despite the taxing role, Sanders remained engaged with her family and her job, even hosting a White House briefing for children in which her own kids attended.

Ivanka Trump

Ivanka is yet another unapologetic, conservative, working mother.

During her time in the White House, Ivanka has dutifully committed herself to her father’s administration and campaign, along with her husband Jared Kushner, all while raising three young children.

“As a working mother who has dedicated her career to the improvement of women’s lives, Ivanka intrinsically understands the issues facing American families today,” Mercedes Schlapp, a senior adviser for the Trump campaign, told Politico.

Ivanka’s children are also often present at White House events, as shown on her Instagram.

Nikki Haley

Haley served as the former South Carolina governor and U.S. ambassador to the United Nations while raising two children with her husband.

During her tenure as governor and ambassador, Haley was repeatedly named to the top 50 Most Powerful Moms by Working Mother Magazine.

Kellyanne Conway

Conway, former Trump campaign adviser and White House senior counselor, was also transparent about her decision to work in politics with four children.

While she said it was “tough” to be away from her children, she tried her best to make time “to help with the six-grade math homework or to make breakfast in the morning.”

While Conway ultimately decided to leave the White House in 2020, she did so unapologetically in the name of her family.

“We disagree about plenty but we are united on what matters most: the kids.” she wrote in her resignation. “Our four children are teens and ’tweens starting a new academic year, in middle school and high school, remotely from home for at least a few months. As millions of parents nationwide know, kids ‘doing school from home’ requires a level of attention and vigilance that is as unusual as these times.”

“For now, and for my beloved children, it will be less drama, more mama,” she continued.

Jordan Davidson is a staff writer at The Federalist. She graduated from Baylor University where she majored in political science and minored in journalism.

Trump calls Limbaugh ‘legend,’ in first TV interview since Senate trial

Published

on

Former President Trump on Wednesday afternoon praised the career of conservative talk radio host Rush Limbaugh, who has died of cancer.

“He loved his country, and he loved his fans,” Trump said on the Fox News Channel. “He is a legend.”

The interview was Trump’s first since the conclusion of his Senate impeachment trial last week.

Limbaugh’s wife, Kathryn, announced her husband’s death earlier in the day on his radio show. He had been diagnosed about a year ago with Stage-IV lung cancer. He was 70.

The president also said he had a personal friendship with Limbaugh, who was an early supporter of his 2016 presidential bid and who, like Trump, thought the president won reelection in 2020.

Trump also pointed out that Limbaugh was a provocateur in his views about conservative politics that often sparked backlash from liberals and other critics. 

Trump last year in his State of the Union address awarded Limbaugh the Presidential Medal of Freedom.

Rep. Bennie Thompson targets Trump, Giuliani, Proud Boys and Oath Keepers in Capitol riot lawsuit

Published

on

Rep. Bennie Thompson is targeting former President Donald Trump, Rudy Giuliani, the Proud Boys and the Oath Keepers in a suit alleging that they conspired to incite the violence that transpired at the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6.

The lawsuit filed on behalf of the long-serving Mississippi Democrat by the NAACP and the Cohen Milstein Sellers & Toll law firm claims that the defendants broke the 1871 Ku Klux Klan Act by attempting to meddle in Congress’s certification of the Electoral College count, according to NPR.

“The insurrection at the Capitol was a direct, intended, and foreseeable result of the Defendants’ unlawful conspiracy,” the lawsuit claims. “It was instigated according to a common plan that the Defendants pursued since the election held in November 2020.”

According to the outlet, Thompson told reporters on Tuesday: “I am privileged to partner with the NAACP to have my day in court so that the perpetrators of putting members of Congress at risk can be held accountable.”

Trump was acquitted on Saturday in his Senate impeachment trial in a 57-43 vote. While a majority of senators voted that the former commander-in-chief was guilty regarding the single article of impeachment that was passed by the House last month during Trump’s waning days in office, the 57 guilty votes failed to clear the two-thirds supermajority required to secure a conviction.

Judicial Watch sues U.S. Capitol Police in pursuit of emails and videos pertaining to Jan. 6 riots

Published

on

Judicial Watch has lodged a lawsuit against the U.S. Capitol Police in an effort to obtain emails and videos pertaining to the riot that transpired Jan. 6 at the Capitol.

The watchdog organization said in a press release that it filed the suit under the common law right of access to public records following the Capitol Police declining to provide materials sought in a Jan. 21 request.

“The public has a right to know about how Congress handled security and what all the videos show of the US Capitol riot,” Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton said in a statement. “What are Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer trying to hide from the American people?”

The January request sought all video from within the U.S. Capitol during a nine-hour period on Jan. 6.

The request also sought “Email communications between the U.S. Capitol Police Executive Team and the Capitol Police Board concerning the security of the Capitol on January 6, 2021. The timeframe of this request is from January 1, 2021 through January 10, 2021,” according to Judicial Watch. The request also sought, “Email communications of the Capitol Police Board with the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the U.S. Department of Justice, and the U.S. Department of Homeland Security concerning the security of the Capitol on January 6, 2021. The timeframe of this request is from January 1, 2021 through January 10, 2021,” according to the watchdog group.

The Capitol Police said in a Feb. 11 letter that the materials sought do not constitute “public records,” according to Judicial Watch.
