Fox Business News reporter Charles Gasparino posted a bizarre account that allegedly took place at President Donald Trump’s inauguration ball on Friday night involving his senior adviser Kellyanne Conway.
Gasparino posted the strange tale on Facebook, in which he alleged Conway became physically entangled in a fight between two men in tuxedos. He also recalled how he helped ward off an attack on Baio by “a bunch of anarchist thugs” outside the event.
More detail on my post trump inaugural fun and games: first met my pal Scott baio outside the victory ball. We said…
The New York Daily News seems to verify Gasparino’s story. The paper reported on Tuesday that Conway was initially trying to mediate a physical dispute between two unidentified Liberal Ball male guests, according to an unnamed witness.
But the two men wouldn’t break up the fight and Conway apparently punched one of them in the face with closed fists at least three times, according to the stunned onlooker,” the newspaper reported.
Meanwhile, Gasparino tweeted a love note of admiration for Conway, noting “Now I know why Trump hired her.”
Based on what I saw last night @KellyannePolls shld be called "the raging bull in heels" she was awesome! And yes the were sharp punches

According to NJ.com, Conway was raised in South Jersey and returned with her husband about eight years ago to buy a home in in one of the most expensive zip codes in the U.S.
Conway recently made news when she coined the phrase “alternative facts,” while trying to defend Trump’s White House Press Secretary, Sean Spicer from allegations that he lied during his first official press conference regarding Trump’s inauguration crowd size. Conway also served as Trump’s third and final campaign manager. The first manager, Corey Lewandowski was involved in a major scandal in which he allegedly manhandled a female report for the Trump-friendly political site Breitbart. Shortly after the incident, he was reportedly fired at the behest of Trump’s eldest daughter, Ivanka Trump. The second campaign manager was Paul Manafort, whose alleged shady dealings with Russian business interests landed him in hot water with the Federal Bureau of Investigations.
With those “colorful” predecessors it’s not surprising that Conway would have a dark side. However, no one would have suspected it involved a right cross. But before anyone becomes too admiring of her tenacious nature, keep in mind that she’s busy using her energy and talents to support a man hell bent on reshaping America in his distorted image. Conway, like every other Trump mouthpiece, is on the wrong side of history. But what’s worst is that she’s one of the key players distorting the vital role truth and facts play in politics, as many Americans continue to believe the “alternative facts” that Trump’s administration promotes.
There is a real concern that Trump may very well spin his way to re-election with Conway’s help. It’s clear that Americans are now living in very dangerous times and are being influenced by very dangerous people.
