Yesterday we noted that Kellyanne Conway was making the rounds on the Sunday talk shows bashing Mitt Romney (see "Kellyanne Blasts Mitt: Trump Supporters 'Feel Betrayed By Governor Romney'"). Now, according to MSNBC, Trump and many of his transition advisors are "furious" over Conway's "rogue" comments.
Two sources at the top of the Trump transition team confirmed to MSNBC that they spoke to the President-elect today and that Donald Trump was "furious" at Kellyanne Conway's comments on Sunday suggesting Trump betrayed his supporters be even considering Mitt Romney for a position in his cabinet. Kellyanne went rogue at Donald Trump's expense at the worst possible time.
Trump's top aide said they were "baffled" by Conway's comments and suggested that it feeds into a growing concern inside the campaign that "instead of driving Donald Trump's message, she's pushing her own agenda."
One top transition aide said "it's dangerous."
Steve Bannon and Reince Preibus have reportedly been growing frustrated by Kellyanne Conway's failure to become a team player in a transition process where the top players are forming a tight-knit group around the president-elect.

When pressed on whether or not she went "rogue," Conway seemingly played Clinton's "woman card."

While we were also somewhat baffled by Kellyanne's approach to bashing Mitt Romney we tend to take everything we hear from MSNBC with a grain of salt. It will be interesting to see whether Conway's media exposure gets reined in over the coming days.
