White House counselor Kellyanne Conway broke up a fight between two tuxedo-clad men and threw some “mean punches” herself at an inaugural ball Friday evening in Washington, D.C., according to senior Fox Business correspondent Charlie Gasparino.
Mr. Gasparinowrote on Facebook Monday about the alleged encounter at the invite-only Liberty Ball, which took place just hours after President Trump was sworn in.
“nside the ball we see a fight between two guys in tuxes and then suddenly out of nowhere came [T]rump adviser Kellyanne Conway who began throwing some mean punches at one of the guys,” Mr. Gasparino wrote. “Whole thing lasted a few mins no one was hurt except maybe the dude she smacked. Now I know why [T]rump hired her.
“Btw I exaggerate none of this,” he added.
Another ball attendee told the New York Daily News that Mrs. Conway, who serves as President Trump’s senior counselor, stepped between the two men after they started fighting. Mrs. Conway punched one of the men in the face with closed fists at least three times before they finally separated, the attendee alleged.
Mr. Gasparino said that wasn’t the only trouble he ran into at the ball. He said he and actor Scott Baio were accosted outside the event by “a bunch of anarchist thugs” who asked Mr. Baio if he was a “fascist.”
