You have to calm down! Kellyanne Conway uses the lyrics of Taylor Swift to mock her VMA performance during Trump
- Taylor Swift called on White House to respond to her petition about the Equality Act
- She called the Trump administration after winning an MTV prize on Monday
- Her petition to support legislation has received more than half a million signatures
- Kellyanne Conway hit back on the singer and she used her own lyrics against her
White House consultant Kellyanne Conway used Taylor Swift's own lyrics to laugh at the singer's call to Trump's administration to support the law on equality law.
Swift accepted her prize for best video of 2019 on Monday at the VMA & # 39; s and took the opportunity to reveal that she was waiting for an official White House response after her legislative petition for more than half a million signatures received.
She included a link to the petition in her award-winning video for & # 39; You Need To Calm Down & # 39; and Conway referred to her song when she went back to the singer in an interview with Fox News.
Conway said: & # 39; I actually like the new Taylor Swift number. Where she says: & # 39; & # 39; If you say it on the street, it's a knockout. If you put it in a tweet, it's a copout & # 39; & # 39 ;.
& # 39; I like that. That is actually Washington in short. & # 39;
She warned Swift about taking part in politics and told her: & If Hollywood and singers and everyone go politics, it sounds like it is very popular right now, and we have seen so many times what is disappointing and exploding. & # 39;

When she accepted her prize, Swift tapped her wrist and said: & # 39; At the end of this video there was a petition and there is still a petition for the Equality Act. It now has half a million signatures, which is five times the amount it would need to justify a White House response. & # 39;
The words Equality Act were also shown in bright light during the performance of Swift during the awards.
Conway responded to the singer's intervention and said the president supports equality, but claimed that the bill & # 39; poison pills & # 39; contained that could harm other people.
She did not clarify what she meant by poison pills in the legislation.
Conway also reminded Swift: & She is also someone who has talked to President Trump in the US Senate Contest in Tennessee and has conveniently lost. & # 39;
During her price acceptance, Swift checked her wrist before explaining that she was waiting for a White House response to her petition for equality law

The White House adviser referred to Swift & # 39; s approval of Democratic Tennessee Senate candidate Phil Bredesen who lost to Senator Marsha Blackburn in 2018.
White House deputy press secretary, Judd Deere, also told CNN that the administration rejects discrimination but does not support the bill.
& # 39; The Trump government is absolutely against any form of discrimination and supports the equal treatment of all; however, the law adopted by the house in its current form is filled with poison pills that threaten to undermine parental and conscience rights, & # 39 ;, Deere told the outlet.
The Democratically controlled House voted in favor of the bill in May, but it has not been voted on by the Senate of the Republican majority.
