Kellyanne Conway insulted the black community by attacking “woke” culture in a lame rhyme while sitting next to billionaire Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos at an event earlier this year.
It was the perfect pairing. After all, the right-wing hates education, which is why President Donald Trump installed DeVos to dismantle the Department of Education and chip away at our nation’s public education system. And apparently, Kellyanne drew the assignment of touting Trump’s propaganda and pandering to his racist supporters.
In that effort, she attacked people for being “woke” by spouting a little rhyme.
“If I hear one more time, ‘we’re woke,'” Conway began. “Woke is a joke. Woke is totally broke.”
Here’s the video via Twitter:

It may not sound racist to some, but when you consider that the Trump campaign recently rolled out “woke” merchandise aimed at the black community, it’s pretty clear who she was talking about.
Maybe someone should have said something to Kellyanne Conway before she did her little rhyme “Woke is a joke. Woke is totally broke.” at CPAC lol

Look how proud of herself she is at the end. Also @KellyannePolls, you’re right. It’s a joke. We say “woke” to poke fun at the fact that the masses are awakening and becoming more aware of elitist/leadership failures. That is not a joke. https://t.co/o6tGaiUPBk

I don’t think there is any hope she will ever be woke if she doesn’t see “what” she’s working for is a waste.

I guess rhyming worked in the OJ trial, so…?

Conway would have been better off not talking at all, let alone attempting to “joke” about being woke. Awareness of injustice and inequality is not something to mock.
In the end, the only joke here is Conway.
