Kellyanne Conway — rumored to be the next White House communications director — drew a strong reaction on social media with a joke about drug use at a forum for millennials.

Introducing Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar and the Department of Justice’s Sarah Isgur Flores, Conway discussed fentanyl, a synthetic opioid that is significantly more potent than heroin.

“On our college campuses, your folks are reading the labels, won’t put any sugar in their body, they don’t eat carbs anymore, and they’re very, very fastidious about what goes into their body — and then you buy a street drug for $5 or $10 and it’s laced with fentanyl, and that’s it,” she said.

‘My short advice is, as somebody double your age, eat the ice cream, have the French fry, don’t buy the street drug.’

Fairly or not, the comment came in for merciless mocking.

I think it’s an okay point to make.

It’s not particularly remarkable.

Her point IS there and it's a reasonable one though her delivery apparently tanked.

No,I don't even think her point is solid  How and why people ended up addicted to opiniods isn't even addressed in her trite comments.  


Quoting PPCLC: Her point IS there and it's a reasonable one though her delivery apparently tanked.
