Kellyanne Conway swiped back at "Morning Joe" hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski after the pair accused her of only working for President Trump for the money. In a statement released on Twitter, Conway defended herself and called the allegations "absurd."

The hosts of MSNBC's Morning Joe have become virulent critics of the President and those close to him. Ignoring insults and insinuations is a valuable skill. But when sentiments are attributed to me that are not true, it is necessary to respond.
My beliefs, commitments and loyalties are plain to see.
The notion that I am serving for "the money" or a "paycheck" is absurd. As campaign manager, I made a fraction of what other consultants have made on unsuccessful presidential campaigns. Then I walked away from dozens of opportunities for millions of dollars, and instead walked into the White House. I would do it again.
It is a privilege to assist President Trump in the White House, just as it was during the campaign. I know him, I respect him, I believe in him, and I am confident in his capacity to be a transformative and successful President.
The Morning Joe hosts allege that Conway had said that she needed to "take a shower" after defending Trump during the campaign. Conway denies this.
