(CNSNews.com) – Trump campaign manager Kellyanne Conway told “Fox News Sunday” that Green Party presidential nominee Jill Stein is “now the favorite flavor of the left” because of her recount efforts and that Democrats once ignored and ridiculed her.

“I’m just astonished how Jill Stein is now the favorite flavor of the left.  They ignored her and ridiculed her, and a lot of their friends in the media made sure she had no coverage and no oxygen,” Conway said.

“We're going to, in a couple moments, have Jill Stein on the program, the Green Party presidential nominee who is pushing recounts in Wisconsin, in Michigan, and Pennsylvania.  What do you say to her about those efforts?” host Chris Wallace asked.

“I say to her, give it up, as it seems like you’re doing in Pennsylvania for a very simple reason. Even your friends in the Clinton campaign have admitted that these recounts will not change any results. Hillary Clinton gained a whopping one vote, Chris, one. And so, I read one article at ‘The Daily Caller’ I believe that said at this pace, Hillary Clinton could change the election results in Wisconsin in 74 1/2 years,” Conway said.

“I don't think America is going to sit around and wait for that to happen. The people have spoken. I was asked on this program and many others that will you accept the election results,” she said. 

“The question for Jill Stein and Hillary Clinton and those still in the grief, anger, and denial stages, will you start moving over to acceptance and let this president-elect and vice president-elect get on with the business of government, have a peaceful transfer of power?” Conway added.

“The other thing is, I’m just astonished how Jill Stein is now the favorite flavor of the left.  They ignored her and ridiculed her, and a lot of their friends in the media made sure she had no coverage and no oxygen,” she said.
