Counselor to the President Kellyanne Conway took to Twitter on Tuesday to fire back at the hosts of MSNBC's "Morning Joe" for comments they made Monday that she secretly loathed working for President Trump.

Contrary to their claims that his campaign manager disliked him, Mediaite reports, Conway insisted it is a "privilege" to work with Trump.

Hosts Mika Brzezinski and Joe Scarborough claimed on Monday that Conway hated advocating for her candidate.

"This is a woman, by the way," Brzezinski said, "who came on our show during the campaign and would shill for Trump in extensive fashion. And then she would get off the air, the camera would be turned off, the microphone would be taken off, and she would say, ‘Blech. I need to take a shower.' Because she disliked her candidate so much."

The two also said that Conway only viewed her job as a "vacation."

Conway took a moment to respond to her provocateurs on Twitter. In a screenshot of a statement, she attacked the hosts, saying that "when sentiments are attributed to me that are not true, it is necessary to respond."

"The notion that I am serving for ‘the money' or a ‘paycheck' is absurd," Conway wrote. "As a campaign manager I made a fraction of what other consultants have made on unsuccessful presidential campaigns. Then I walked away from dozens of opportunities for millions of dollars, and instead walked into the White House. I would do it again."

"It is a privilege," she wrote, "to assist President Trump in the White House, just as it was during the campaign."
