White House counselor Kellyanne Conway said Wednesday that she does not blame all men just because she is a victim of sexual assault.
“I don’t intend to be the story,” Conway said during an interview on Fox News. “But I will repeat the full sentence for you because I didn't leave it at that. I put 'comma — and therefore, I don't hold all men responsible for that. I hold the perpetrator responsible for that.”

She was referencing an interview Sunday on CNN, when she first revealed publicly that she is a sexual assault victim.
Conway, a fierce defender of President Trump and his messaging, further lamented how Republican men are being chased around in public by protesters for their support of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, who is fighting allegations of sexual assault.
“So that was my entire point, that now we're blaming all men,” Conway said. “[Senate Majority Leader] Mitch McConnell being chased through an airport with the four-letter word rape being thrown at him. It's a disgrace.”
