Kellyanne Conway 'Didn't See The Point' Of The Women's March

At least half a million people packed the streets around the Capitol in Washington, D.C., for the Women's March on Saturday. 

One person not in attendance? Counselor to the president Kellyanne Conway.

"I frankly didn't see the point. ... You have folks being here on a diatribe where I think they could have requested a dialogue," Conway said on ABC's "This Week."

Along with the march in D.C., millions of people around the world joined together in solidarity to promote women's rights. 

Conway also called out Madonna, who gave a fiery profanity-laced speech at the D.C. march, saying she'd "thought about blowing up the White House."

The singer later clarified that statement on Instagram, writing, "I spoke in metaphor and I shared two ways of looking at things — one was to be hopeful, and one was to feel anger and outrage, which I have personally felt."

On Sunday, President Donald Trump questioned why the people at the march hadn't voted in the November election. 

He later appeared to have a change of heart about the protest, tweeting, "Even if I don't always agree, I recognize the rights of people to express their views."

The gender gap was pretty significant in the election. Overall, more women voted for Hillary Clinton — 54 percent voted for her, while 42 percent voted for Trump. But those numbers look different among white women: 53 percent of white women voted for Trump, while only 43 percent cast their ballots for Clinton. 

"Their candidate, Hillary Clinton, lost. Twenty-nine to 30 million women voted for Donald Trump. Their voices are heard, as well. They should be respected," Conway told ABC.
