Top Trump adviser Kellyanne Conway punched a man after stepping in to try to stop a fight at an invite-only inaugural ball on Friday, according to a new report Tuesday.
The New York Daily News reported that witnesses saw Conway punch a man in the face at least three times at the exclusive Liberty Ball in Washington just hours after President Trump was sworn in.
A Trump spokesman did not respond immediately for a request for comment.
Conway reportedly stepped between two men who were fighting and punched one of them when they wouldn’t stop. Fox Business correspondent Charlie Gasparino recounted the event on Monday in a Facebook post.
“Inside the ball we see a fight between two guys in tuxes and then suddenly out of nowhere came trump adviser Kellyanne Conway who began throwing some mean punches at one of the guy,” Gasparino wrote. “Whole thing lasted a few mins no one was hurt except maybe the dude she smacked.”
“Now I know why Trump hired her,” he added.
Conway made waves this weekend when she claimed White House press secretary Sean Spicer used “alternative facts” when he falsely claimed Trump’s inauguration was the most-watched inauguration ever.
