The youngest daughter of civil rights leader Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. had a chance to address comments made about her late father by political consultant and pundit Kellyanne Conway on Monday.
When asked about how the president was observing Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day, Conway turned the question into an opportunity to talk about the impending impeachment hearings saying that she didn’t believe that it was King’s “vision to have Americans dragged through a process where the president is not going to be removed from office, is not being charged with bribery, extortion, high crimes or misdemeanors.”
In a conversation with MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell, Bernice King, The CEO of the King Center in Atlanta made her feelings known by saying Conway’s response was “embarrassing and incompetent.”
She blazed Conway on social media as well:
Until a person commits to better understanding and then better understands my father’s teachings and methodologies, I REALLY wish they’d keep his name, and incorrect anaylsis, out of their conversations about current issues. #MLKDay #MLK https://t.co/ZoVS89oYNQ
