Kellyanne Conway: Blueberry fields forever

Trumpster Kellyanne Conway seems forever indebted to the eight summers she spent as a blueberry picker in Hammonton, New Jersey.  After all, “the faster you went, the more money you’d make.”

After not only winning the New Jersey Blueberry Princess pageant at 16, but also the World Champion Blueberry Packing competition at 20, Conway became cream of the crop.  She credits “everything I learned about life and business” to those glory days in South Jersey.

She plowed on through law school, a judge clerkship and “political opinion research work” to become the “Trump Whisperer” that we know and ? today.  How does she get the ear of our president-elect?  Rather than chew it a la Mike Tyson, Conway prefers a more subtle approach.

She uses what some call “the brownie technique.” Instead of telling her boss that he can’t have any brownies, she dishes out two or three for him to sample.  This results in prepackaged Tweets that are far easier to stomach than Trump’s fresh-baked ones.
