Kellyanne Conway often appears on TV to plug her boss President Donald Trump's policies.

But in a Sunday shocker during her interview with CNN's Jake Tapper for his show "State of the Union," Conway cleared her throat and said, "I'm a victim of sexual assault."

Counselor to the President Conway, 51, revealed her sad secret as Tapper asked her questions about Judge Brett Kavanaugh and the Supreme Court nominee's controversial Senate Judiciary hearing that took place on Thursday, September 27.

"I feel very empathetic, frankly, for victims of sexual assault, sexual harassment and rape," Conway said, in regards to Kavanaugh's accuser Christine Blasey Ford's testimony.

Then she dropped her personal bombshell.

Tapper was startled and sympathetic in the live TV moment.

"This is the first time I've ever heard you talk about something personal like that, and I'm really sorry," he told Conway.

But Tapper continued to ask the blonde political veteran about the claims that President Trump has sexually assaulted multiple women.

"Don't conflate that with this, and certainly don't conflate that with what happened to me," Conway responded.

"I don't expect Judge Kavanaugh or Jake Tapper or Arizona Republican Senator Jeff Flake or anybody to be held responsible for that," she said, apparently referring to her own situation. "You have to be responsible for your own conduct."

Conway, who triumphed as Trump's campaign manager in 2016, has continued to be one of his biggest supporters in her White House role.

She married attorney George Conway in 2001 and they have four children.
