Instead, Trump’s campaign manager suggests they relax with a cigar and cognac.

Massive protests against President-Elect Donald Trump have erupted nationwide since the November 8th election, and Trump’s team is lashing out.

“We are just treating these adolescents and millennials like precious snowflakes,” Trump campaign manager Kellyanne Conway said on Sean Hannity’s Fox show Wednesday night.

Both Conway and Hannity slammed the protesters for being privileged, saying that because both of them came from “humble beginnings” they would never protest against the president.

“It is really time for these little pampered spoiled brats to get over themselves,” said Hannity. “Did I ever send you hot cocoa? Did I ever give you a crying room because you lost? Did we ever protest together? I don’t think so,” he said to Conway.

“Maybe a cigar and a cognac here and there, which is more our style,” Conway replied. “And certainly not to degrade the office of the president or cry crocodile tears into that cognac about who had won the election.”

“I was raised the way you were raised. Very humble beginnings. But most importantly we were raised to respect the office of the presidency and current occupant and the flag. And that’s it. All that that represents,” said Conway.

Donald Trump rose to political prominence by pushing birtherism, the racist conspiracy theory that current President Barack Obama was not born in the United States. The claims were and are demonstrably false.

Trump has also described the current president as “the most ignorant president in our history,” “a disaster,” and the “founder of ISIS.”

Conway alleged that the protesters were being bribed with college credit by their professors (of which there is no reported evidence) and linked the grievances to “many of the paid protesters before the election.” Alleging that protesters against Trump are being paid is another common conspiracy, largely based on deceptively edited footage.

Conway also implied that, because Trump was elected, the protesters’ specific objections — many of which include Trump’s racist, sexist, and generally bigoted rhetoric — were not longer valid.

“All of their grievances and complaints are so pre-election.”

“You know, Sean, when I listen to protesters and professional politicians whine and cry over Donald Trump’s election, I haven’t heard anything new,” said Conway. “All of their grievances and complaints are so pre-election.”

She lamented that “the people who defied Donald Trump before he was elected will not accept the results.”

“What is the worst thing that could happen to these millennials? That Donald Trump will make good on his promise to create 25 million new jobs, that he’ll unleash energy investment, that he’ll get rid of the Obamacare penalty on day one, so you are not forced to buy government health care?”

That Trump will live up to some of his campaign promises is exactly why many are protesting.

Trump campaigned on pledges such as banning Muslims from traveling to the United States and forcing Muslim Americans to register in a database, a promise to deport millions of immigrants, and to pull out of the Paris Climate Agreement.

While marching, some protesters carry signs professing solidarity with Muslims and people of color, protesting deportation, and point out the reality of climate change. Others protest Trump’s bigoted rhetoric, bullying, and cozy relationship with white nationalists.

As Conway noted, Trump also promised to repeal Obamacare. Though he’s suggested that he would keep some portions of the law, the health care proposal he advanced during his campaign would cause 21 million Americans to lose their health insurance.

Conway and Hannity are far from the first on Trump’s team to mock the national protests.

Earlier on Tuesday, Rep. Peter King (R-NY) called college students who are against Trump “morons.” Former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani called the protesters “goons and thugs” on Monday. Giuliani was one of Trump’s top surrogates during the campaign, and is now reportedly being considered as Secretary of State.

And Trump himself — who has yet to use his Twitter to disavow the reported spike in hate incidents following his election — tweeted on November 10th that “professional protesters, incited by the media, are protesting. Very unfair!”
