From the December 22 edition of MSNBC's Morning Joe:
MIKA BRZEZINSKI (CO-HOST): The newly named counselor to the president, Kellyanne Conway. Well this is exciting and unexpected. How are you?
KELLYANNE CONWAY: I'm great, Mika. Thank you for having me.
BRZEZINSKI: Tell us what went behind this decision. I know -- you and I have spoken a little bit. There's a lot of factors at play.
CONWAY: I appreciated your counsel and your friendship throughout, Mika, and that of many others. Essentially, my major concern is and will always be my four children, but I'm very convinced that this is a family-friendly West Wing and White House.
