Kellyanne Conway’s secret service code name – Blueberry — isn’t so secret anymore, and Twitter trolls are having a field day ribbing her about it.
A profile in New York Magazine included a disclosure from the White House staffer that she had received death threats — which sparked President Trump to insist that she be granted Secret Service protection. That means a code name, and that code name is Blueberry. And that’s all the Conway hecklers needed to hear.
An endless parade of jokes followed on Twitter, many of which had alternate monikers in mind. Others conjured up a visual of the girl in “Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory” who blew up like a giant blueberry and was escorted to the juicing room by an army of Oompa Loompas.

Conway choose the name Blueberry herself, an homage from when she was crowned Miss New Jersey Blueberry Princess during her time helping out on berry farms in the southern part of the Garden State. She was also named World Champion Blueberry Packer for her skills at boxing up the little fruit, New York Magazine reported.
She is taking the teasing with a grain of salt, admitting that it’s “embarrassing” to hear burly Secret Service agents assigned to her muttering the word “blueberry” over and over. What she does take seriously, however, is the reason the Secret Service was brought into the picture. Besides the death threats, she also once received an envelope with a suspicious white substance.
